Universal Orlando Studios
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – The magical world of Harry Potter comes to life both here and in the adjoining Universal theme parks, connected by none other than the Hogwarts Express. You’ve got the quaint little village that is Hogsmeade in Universal’s Islands of Adventure, complete with shops, restaurants serving Butter Beer and a ride that’ll take you flying above Hogwarts Castle. Then there are the winding lanes of Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Florida, complete with all of your favourite mystical shops and the massive bank-turned-ride that is Gringotts.
Universal Studios Florida – The original of the Universal Studios Florida gang, this park is both ride central and a working film and TV studio. Here you can embark on roller coasters and 3D shows that allow you to jump into your favourite films, including Shrek, Transformers, The Mummy and Terminator.
Islands of Adventure – The skyline of Universal’s Islands of Adventure is cut with the brightly-coloured tracks of some seriously huge rollercoasters, each of which are themed after top Hollywood films. You’ve got the classic Jurassic Park River Adventure and coasters based on superheroes – think Spider-Man and the Incredible Hulk – along with a kid-friendly Dr. Seuss-themed area of the park.
