    My favourite park, lots of mix of rides old and new, don’t miss the train ride to Islands of Adventure although expect a long queue without a fast pass. It’s a vibrant place with lots of surprises as well as thrill rides. The new Bourne Spectacular will blow your mind. Grandchildren loved ET ride, my fav was The Mummy.

    A must do park with rides for thrill seekers plus Harry Potter fans will love it, please try butter beer, Only disappointment was no fast pass availability for Hagrids Motorbike ride. The Queues were just too long for our grandchildren. Next time!

    First time visiting this water park. We spent more money on hiring a cabana for the day. Not cheap but it meant a guaranteed private space with seating to come back to, in between rides, fresh towels on demand and water plus a fruit basket waiting in the cabana. The children loved the space. The rapid river was so much fun we did this several times. Family lived the rides and the waves when the volcano regularly erupted! Great themed water park, only downside was signage not clear on where each water ride was, and a few closures of rides not available but it was a fab day all in all
