If you have never been to Universal Studios you may not know that there are actually two parks within Universal Studios. You have the main park, Universal Studios, and then you also have Island of Adventure where you will find the other half of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter as well as Marvel’s Superhero Island and Suess Landing. Some people contemplate on whether or not they want to pay the additional cost for both parks or if they want to just stick with one. Here is why I think that you need both!
-The Train Ride: In order to get over to the Island of Adventure you have to ride the Hogwarts Express. I think that this experience makes buying the park hopper pass well worth it.The train ride itself is so cool and exciting. You get inside of a little cabin just like you would if you were riding a real train and on the wall you get to see everything as you drive by just like you would if you were inside of a real life Harry Potter movie. The seats are actually very comfortable and it is definitely something you want to do!
-Experience Both Sides of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter: Although you can see part of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter with just your general admission to Universal Studios, you need the park hopper pass in order to see both sides and I highly recommend seeing both sides. On the other side there are so many more rides ,such as Dragon Challenge, that you need to experience and exciting shops that really make for the whole Harry Potter experience.
-Marvel Superhero Island: At Marvel Superhero Island is where you will find rides such as Spiderman, Dr. Doom, and The Hulk! These rides are so much fun and they are not to miss for those little Superhero lovers. Sometimes you can even find the characters walking around and your kiddos can meet their favorite super heroes!
-Suess’ Landing: If you have really little ones, Suess’ Landing is an absolute must! Here you will find fun rides like the Caro-Suess-el and One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. Cat in the Hat and Dr Suess are so famous among kids of so many different generations so it is always fun to go there as a family and enjoy it together.
If you plan to visit Universal Studios soon and you are on the fence about whether or not you should spring for the park hopper pass, I am here to tell you that I would highly recommend it. Although you can have fun at both sides just paying for a single park admission, I think having both really adds to the whole experience, you will have a blast all day long and there will be something for everyone throughout both parks.
