Theme Park
$$$
“Islands of Adventure is by far the better side of Universal. If you want fast speed roller coasters. Rides that teens and even adults love to go on. We especially loved the King Kong. Virtual Reality interaction ride and The New Creature Adventure Motorcycle, Harry Potter ride. My first time on the Hulk, it's a high speed roller coaster that starts fast and just gets faster. Really fun and long riding, definitely worth it. If you love roller coasters. Jurassic Park and The Water rides will get you soaked. While you laugh at not just yourself but the other riders in the boat. Lots of fun.”
