Universal Islands of Adventure in Florida

I think I’ve pretty thoroughly covered Harry Potter World, so here’s the rest of the park…

We left Harry Potter about 3:30pm and stayed till 7.

My eldest daughter and I did the Jurassic Park ride – you have to do that one. It starts off as if you are a visitor in Jurassic Park, and then, as so often happens on these rides, everything goes wrong and we’re taken the wrong way. Highly recommended ride – the slope at the end is not that bad and you only get splashed a bit. The middle seats are the driest. Younger kids may find the giant tyrannosaurus rex quite scary – I did and I was expecting it! (It was exactly the same as the ride in California).

We did pop-eye barges – one of those rides where you sit in a massive rubber ring and are taken down rapids and through waterfalls (There is a handy cover in the middle to keep possessions dry – but don’t rely on it – use at least 2 carrier bags as well) As expected, we got absolutely drenched and as usual, I got the worst hit. Chris was not that bad, but still not impressed with me for insisting we all did it! It was also too late in the day to dry off.

Next was the spiderman ride and we made the seats rather wet. Sorry to whoever had them after us. This was a good fun family ride and you wore 3D glasses so it seemed like Spiderman actually jumped onto your car. It was very effective, gentle and I’d recommend it.

We went home after that, and came back again about a week later, but unfortunately got the closing time wrong. So we missed the stunt show and Poisdon Adventure, which is a shame. Depending how long you want to spend at Harry Potter World, you could easily do this park in one day.
