Episode 4: Universal Islands of Adventure Tour

Islands of Adventure Tour

Today’s episode in my 7 Days to a Better Universal Orlando Vacation series is a virtual tour of Universal’s Islands of Adventure.

Universal Islands of Adventure opened in 1999 and the theming is inspired by popular culture icons like the Dr. Suess books, comics, and big-budget movie franchises. There is pretty much something for everyone here.

Some of the attractions we’ll discuss:

The Incredible Hulk Coaster

The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman

Popeye and Bluto’s Bilge Rat Barges

Kong: Skull Island

Jurassic Park

Raptor Encounter

The talking fountain in the Lost Continent

Suess Landing

Plus tips about shopping and other interesting sights at Islands of Adventure.

I’m saving Hogsmeade Village and the Harry Potter attractions for episode 5, which is a tour of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Listen to that episode here.
