  • Top tip: get to the park before/as it opens and do the rides backwards. It seems obvious to go straight to Minions, for example, but we went the opposite way around the park and didn’t wait for more t...  more »

  • UNIVERSAL STUDIOS WAS AMAZING! MY FAMILY AND I JUST VISITED IN AUGUST. MY HUSBAND AND SON DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE! THE RIDES ARE AMAZING. THE PARK IS CLEAN AND VERY NICE. MY FAMILY AND I PLAN TO GO BACK VERY SOON. MAYBE TWICE A YEAR, AFTER THE WONDERFUL TIME WE HAD. EVERYONE SHOULD TAKE THERE CHILDREN TO EXPERIENCE UNIVERSAL STUDIOS FLORIDA. WAY TO GO UNIVERSAL!
  • What an Amazing Place to visit. They have the best attractions around Orlando. In our opinion. Roller Coasters, Swings, Go Carts, haunted house's, water rides,and the list goes on. Many Restaurants, and Candy factories, Live Entertainment, Several Shows throughout the Day and that's just the beginning. One of our favorite places was the Three Story Hard Rock Cafe. If ever giving the. Chance to visit universal Studios...Go for it...
  • I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS PLACE! it was incredible. Everything was just fun especially Diagon alley. It was so realistic! If you are not a fan of scary rides, well you're all sorted out as there are many 3D places or rides (minion mayhem, Jimmy Fallon show and loads more places.) If you are a fan of rides there are plenty including the Incredible Hulk ride and the mummy. You should also take a visit to universal islands of adventure (other theme park) and volcano bay (universal water park.)
  • There is a reason we pick this place and Universal Studios as a place to visit every May. The rides are amazing! The whole park has something for every member of my family to enjoy! The park is so clean and impressive. The staff are so friendly and treat you like they want your trip to be special. Even when my 12 year old wanted to ride the bigger rides, there was still plenty for me to take my younger two to do. We were in the park for 5 days, and we had such a blast! Express Passes are a must!
  • Great place, love rock the universe and the other great events. Good food! Ticket prices are more affordable than Disney. Good place for the kids, parking is 20 dollars. Only 1 real roller coaster that goes up high. More rides are aimed towards riding the movies. All in all a great experience. You will definitely enjoy this place.
