Universal Studios Islands of Adventure

The last theme parks we made it to were Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. Because of all the 3D and strobing and flashing lights, we did not spend a lot of time at Universal Studios. Ashleigh enjoyed Islands of Adventure though, and we were able to ride a lot of rides there. We started out at Jurassic Park with the pterodactyl ride.
It was a lot of fun, you could see most of the park while you were flying around, but it was so short! Because the regular line was at least an hour wait, and we were able to get right on with our pass, we only rode 1 time. We didn't want to cause much more delay for the people who waited patiently. We found a great roller coaster, the unicorn ride, and the girls loved it. It was tame compared to the Kraken, but at least we all rode together this time!

Our favorite area was the Dr. Seuss section. Everything is Seuss-like, and the attention to detail was amazing. Street signs, rides, shops and decor all stuck to the theme. We rode everything in this land, and it was a lot of fun. After a quick jaunt to Universal Studios to see if we could ride one or two rides, we returned here for some funnel cake before we left for the day. Yum!
