"Hi everyone. I’m going to Orlando with my family in a few days, we want to do just one park one day, but we’re not sure which park we should do? My husband is more of a roller coaster guy but part of me wants to see the site where jaws were, as lame as that sounds. Any thoughts?
Islands of adventure will have a lot more in it that is not at Hollywood. Studios has Diagonal Alley. Islands has velocicoaster, hulk and hagrids (the tamer of the 3 but still awesome). It’s also all around much better themed.
Definitely Islands of Adventure (IOA) has most thrill rides that consists of the Hulk coaster, a more intense coaster is Velocicoaster, and if you like a "magical" thrill ride Hagrids motorbike as well. Universal Studios FL (USF) only has 2 coasters consist of Ripe Ride Rocket is an intense thrill ride, Mummy is an indoor rollercoaster. I'll also recommend if you have a smartphone, go into your desired app store, search "Universal FL" that'll be your park guide for everything you need!
It really depends. Universal's Islands of Adventure has slightly more rides than shows, including more thrill rides, as opposed to Universal Studios Florida. It is also the only park with water rides (minus Universal's Volcano Bay). Universal Studios Florida has plenty of thrills, but there are slightly more shows and kid-friendly attractions. If you have children under age five, you might consider Universal Studios Florida over Universal's Islands of Adventure.
