Can’t complain about this place, always enjoy our time there. Rides were all working good and everything flowed well. Best part for me was the water blasters over the Rip Saw Falls!! Number 2 blaster is a must aha

Just returned from vacation to the UK and missing this place already!! Can't explain how much fun we had there and kept returning throughout our vacation. Favorite ride has to be the Hulk Coaster, first and last ride every time. Can't wait to return

It feels like you're inside of your favorite movie. Wizarding World, Jurassic Park and King Kong was my favorite. Food is expensive, you might want to consider eating first before heading here.

I wanted to add one or two parks to our Disney trip. I had initially put this at the bottom of my top 5 considerations after reading that it appeals more to pre-teens and up and all the motion sickness comments. I was reluctant, but...More
