Universal Islands of Adventure Awarded Top Spot in TripAdvisor
The adventure, wizardry and heroic themed amusement park topples the Magic Kingdom to take the lead in TripAdvisor’s coveted list
Ask anyone what the best theme park in Orlando is and chances are most people will say it is one of the four Disney parks. However, TripAdvisor has just released the results of its worldwide survey and the results have stunned Orlando theme park fans—and not without good reason. Every year, over 60 million visitors come to Central Florida seeking to experience our world-famous theme parks, exciting local attractions and a wide array of dining and shopping venues. And while we are on the subject, TripAdvisor has placed Orlando among the top 3 spots on their rankings for entertainment destinations.
Universal Islands of Adventure has been gaining popularity thanks to its Wizarding World of Harry Potter, which has been attracting park goers since its grand opening in 2010. Add to that a new extension of this themed attraction at its sister park, Universal Studios Florida, and now you have a super combo to sway thrill seekers away from its fierce competitors. In fact, Universal Studios has been experiencing a period of growth unmatched by Disney or SeaWorld. While the other parks have also kept busy building new attractions, Universal continues to wow visitors with not only new rides, but also a new water park currently under construction.
So what does this mean for future visitors? Simple, Universal Studios is not only growing, but also renewing itself by removing old rides and replacing them with new ones in an effort to keep the hunger for new rides alive and ready to feed thrill seekers. With the upcoming addition of the Reign of Kong at Universal Islands of Adventure and the construction of Volcano Bay Water Park, you can expect things to not just get better for Universal, but also for its competing theme parks which will undoubtedly seek to one-up them with bigger and better rides and attractions.
Vista Cay Resort by Millenium is always excited to welcome theme park fans and we invite you to explore special rates on select dates, reminding you to book early to secure your place at our wonderful resort property. See you soon on your next Orlando vacation!
