Islands of Adventure

Florida Guide > Universal Parks

The second universal park to open in Orlando and is a real must for the for the daredevils among you, a thrill seekers paradise it has to be said. It is situated next to Universal studios and you can purchase a one day two park pass which is great value and allows you to visit both Universal studios and Islands of Adventure.

Once through the gates grab yourself a park map and sit down in City walk and over a drink peruse the map and decide where to go first.

Islands of Adventure is made up of five sections each section then houses some of the best rides for you to enjoy.

1. Seuss Landings

This is the first area and includes rides more suited to the smaller guests such as the sit on ride through the pages of Dr Seuss ‘The Cat in the Hat’ and meet the worlds most mischievous cat. Caro-Seuss-el merry go round, one fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish and if I ran the zoo an interactive play area.

2. The Lost Continent

This Mythical land is home to one of my favourite rides The Duelling Dragons Fire and Ice, Two totally different hair raising, breathtaking, rides not for the faint hearted, just Awesome.

The flying Unicorn, Poseidon’s fury, The eighth voyage of Sinbad which is a live action show and The mystic fountain where you can make a wish. Just be careful what you wish for.

3. Jurassic park

Next come Jurassic park and Pteranodon flyers where you can soar through the air and get a Pteranodon’s ey view of camp Jurassic.

Camp Jurassic a Prehistoric playground.

The Jurassic park Discovery centre a hands on interactive area and last but not least Jurassic park River Adventure a thrilling river raft ride BUT beware there might just be T-REX on the loose.

4. Toon Lagoon

This is where you will most certainly get a little wet ha ha ha

Dudley Do-Right’s Ripsaw falls will make sure of that being one of the steepest water drops ever created. Popeye & Bluto’s Bilge-Rat Barges is another one to get you just a little soaked (not to worry you soon dry outJ

Me Ship, the Olive an interactive play are.

5. Marvel Super Hero Island

Here you will find the amazing adventures of Spider Man a high tech 3D ride. The incredible Hulk coaster also not for the faint hearted but certainly not one to be missed and finally Doctor Doom’s Fearfall where you are lifted 150 feet into the air and then dropped faster than gravity itself.

Just a taster to let you know what is on offer but you must visit yourself to get the full pleasure, it is really worth a visit.
