One of three thrilling theme parks at the Universal Orlando Resort, Islands of Adventure is filled with fan favorites like The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Marvel Super Hero Island, Seuss Landing, Toon Lagoon, and Jurassic Park, The Lost Continent.
Twenty of the park’s 101 acres are dedicated to muggles having a magical experience at Hogsmeade. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter brings this imaginative village to life through themed dining, shopping, and entertainment experiences that take you on a journey through the world of witches and wizards. Whether you travel through the Floo Network, arrive via the Hogwarts Express, or soar over the village on a Hippogriff, you won’t believe all the detail that went into recreating Rowling’s vision.
Other adventures have guests helping Spidey save the day, becoming test subjects at a secure research compound, and coming face-to-face with King Kong. Islands of Adventure also has several signature water rides including the Jurassic Park River Adventure, Dudley Do-Right’s Ripsaw Falls, and Popeye & Bluto’s Bilge-Rat Barges.

Younger guests will love traveling through the pages of their favorite Dr. Seuss books in Seuss Landing and riding on the Caro-Seuss-el. Daily musical storytimes featuring familiar characters are followed by friendly meet-and-greets with The Grinch, The Lorax, Sam I Am, and the Cat in the Hat with his sidekicks, Thing 1 and Thing 2. When you’ve worked up an appetite, you can grab a bite to eat from one of ten eateries located throughout the park with kid-friendly fare.
