The question was this.
Can a visit to a theme park – even one with the word ‘adventure’ in its name – truly be considered an adventure? My husband Paul and I drove to Orlando yesterday to find out for ourselves – and the answer is a screaming-loud yes indeed!
Universal’s Islands of Adventure features attractions that the tiniest toddlers can enjoy, get-wet rides with perilous plunges and countless cool coasters. It also features the groundbreaking new ride dubbed Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, where you soar above the castle grounds. And it’s visually stunning, a place where whole new worlds await you, where you can shop-till-you-drop and satisfy your hunger at every turn.
Rides and attractions at Islands of Adventure include:
· The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man®
· The Incredible Hulk Coaster®
· Jurassic Park River Adventure®
· The Cat in the Hat™
· The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™
Check out the twisted video of our incredible day – and the Incredible Hulk Coaster!
· Get the Express Pass. It’s well worth the cost because you don’t have to wait in line.
· They sell little plastic holders for your Express Pass at the front of the park, which you can wear around your neck. They are a great idea. I figured that out about the fifth time I fished the soggy remains of my pass out of my pocket.
· Prepare to get wet. You will. (I wore my bathing suit under my clothes.)
· Bring a plastic bag to keep your wallet in. (See above – you’re going to get soaked!)
· Wear comfortable footwear.
