Universal Studios Islands of Adventure is an exciting and innovative
concept for the 21st century. Located next door to Universal Studios® it combines
legends, heroes and action adventure with thrilling new rides, shows and restaurants
- in other words, a complete entertainment complex. The park is sub-divided
into five islands - Seuss Landing, The Lost Continent, Jurassic Park, Toon
Lagoon and Marvel Super Hero Island - each with its own unique theme . . .
DO NOT MISS: 3-D on the first-of-its-kind 3-D thrill ride, The Amazing
Adventures of Spider-Man®.
TIP: Islands of Adventure tends to get very busy early in the morning so it is a good idea to arrive at the park around 30 minutes before opening time. Also in order to avoid long queues try to visit the most popular attractions first in the following order: The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man the Incredible Hulk Coaster, Doctor Doom's Fearfall, Dueling Dragons, Dudley Do-Right's Ripsaw Falls, Popeye and Bluto's Bilge-Rat Barges, Jurassic Park River Adventure, The Cat in the Hat, One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish, Caro-Seuss-el, Storm Force Accelatron. Alternatively you could buy an Express Pass Plus pass for $20 which allows you to ride once all the participating attractions without any waiting time.
