Trip Advisor has compiled it’s list of the Top Theme Parks in the World, and for the second year in a row a non-Disney theme park has taken the top prize.
The winner, Universal Orlando’s Islands of Adventure!
The park opened in 1999 and which clocks in at 110 acres. IOA is jammed with state of the art attractions like The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade (which features several attractions including Hogwarts Castle), Jurassic Park River Adventure, Seuss Landing, The Incredible Hulk Coaster, The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man, and many more!
Things just got better too, with the opening of Skull Island: Reign Of Kong. Part dark-ride, part simulator, part special effects spectacular, Skull Island raises the stakes in the Orlando theme park market, making the Top Theme Park in the World even better!
Sister park Universal Studios features Simpsons: The Ride, Transformers: The Ride 3-D, T2:3D, Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit, Revenge of the Mummy, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley (with two original and exclusive attractions), Men In Black: Alien Attack and others. Combine the two parks with CityWalk, several on-site hotels and the forthcoming Volcano Bay Water Theme Park and you have a multi-day vacation destination all on it’s own!
The theme park wars in Orlando are heating up…Your move Disney!
