  • Disabled people are treated with such respect here. Even on the shuttle buses taking you there. Well done. 
  • Amazing attractions, simulators are not to be missed, get ready to get wet too, that water attractions, water ... a great place for the summer. Don't miss the opportunity to eat a Turkey leg, famous smoked Turkey leg, worth evidence

  • If you want intense roller coasters, 4D special effects and over the top rides, this is your park. The food is fast and not very good and the lines can be long, but it's great for teens and those that...  more »

  • Full of great rides and stuffed with activities, this park has it all. It's very creative, and I love the water rides (Popeye and Ripsaw Falls). Also Jurassic Park is pretty cool. My favorite however is the Dr Seuss land as it has everything to get you into a good mood. Plus this park has a Marvel and Harry Potter section which is great. There's so much to do here
  • A great day out with lots to see and do. Some of the must see / do would be: Skull Island - this ride is mind blowing. You know it's partly 3D movie but it is impossible to tell where the real stops and the 3D begins. Amazing Ripsaw Falls and Bilge-Rat Barges - You will get wet, seriously, seriously wet! Incredible Hulk coaster is a great rollercoaster. And then of course there is half of the Harry Potter world including some great rides - most of which mix real world with 3D movies. Seems to be the way to fit a ride into a smaller space. But the Dragon Challenge is a "real" coaster.
  • Loved it. Plenty to do and see. Had two visits and would have gone back if we hadn't so many other places to see. The shows were fantastic and the staff were wonderful. Food was good at some places and good value for money though in all honesty would not recommend the food at the Jurassic Park outlet. Met some wonderful people and have great memories and pics.
  • Such a fun, exciting and amazing place. Great to bring out the inner child. My only complaint is the price. For one day we spent almost $500.. between two tickets and food, we couldn't even afford souvenirs (nearly $40 for a T-shirt) not to mention being Florida residents we didn't save much either. Minus the money, it was a great day.
  • Going in the beginning of October was a great idea because the lines were short and the crowds were smaller. Harry Potter was the highlight of the trip for my 17-year-old daughters! Get frozen butter beer! The roller coasters were all fun! The staff is all helpful in the characters were great! This was our third visit and definitely the best!
