Prepare for a place where super heroes, beasts, and magical creatures stand before you! You're entering lands where everything is real. Explore a secret school of witchcraft and wizardry.

Let the adventures begin.

Pulse-Pounding Thrills - Looking to shift your adrenaline into overdrive? Strap yourself into edge-of-your-seat roller coasters like The Incredible Hulk Coaster®. Help save the city on The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man® ride. Then fly above Hogwarts™ castle on an unforgettably thrilling adventure, Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey™. Brave the dangers of a mysterious island where few dare to venture. On a treacherous journey into the dark heart of the jungle, prehistoric predators and fearsome creatures attack your vehicle from all sides on Skull Island: Reign of Kong.  Embark on a scenic water cruise at Jurassic Park River Adventure, where you will wind through the ominous "restricted area' of Jurassic Park. Did we mention the 85-foot drop? Weather you are young or young at heart we have an adventure for you! Explore the whimsical world of Dr. Seuss in the wonky Seuss Landing™. Get splash-happy on the water rides of Toon Lagoon®. And if you like a bit of danger mixed with your science, take the kids to the prehistoric Jurassic Park®. Because really, you’re never too young or too old for a little excitement. 

Wizardry and Witchcraft abound at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™. You enter through the towering castle gates and make your way down the familiar passageways and halls of Hogwarts™. And for the first time ever, Muggles™ will be able to ride on the Hogwarts™ Express. Guests with Park-to-Park admission can travel between Hogsmeade™ Station (in Universal’s Islands of Adventure) and King's Cross Station (in Universal Studios Florida) on the iconic scarlet steam engine, encountering different characters and creatures from the Harry Potter™ stories each way. 

Not to be Missed - When the sun sets, brighten your night with The Nightime Lights at Hogwarts Castle! On select nights, watch in awe from Hogsmeade village as majestic projections are cast against the castle.
