Family events, kids activities and parenting resources in the Orlando, Florida area!
Universal Orlando consists of two theme parks (Universal Studios Florida and Universal's Islands of Adventure), a water park (Volcano Bay), a night-time entertainment complex (Universal CityWalk Orlando), and six Loews Hotels.
Universal Orlando - It’s just like watching your favorite TV shows and movies IRL, except with the ultimate ride-y things like twists, turns and drops. Face villains more menacing than your kids pre-churros. Save the earth daily or even hourly. Oh and dragons, have we got dragons. And one of them even breathes real fire so that’s cool (err hot). This is way beyond the movies.
Islands of Adventure - This is where it goes down. And up. And down again. To those who say “Yay adventure” we’re here for you. Superheroes. Magical creatures. A school of witchcraft and wizardry. Even dinosaurs (turns out, not so extinct). Take a ride, multiple rides. Some will drench you. Some will just mess up your hair. Some will make your head spin (figuratively speaking). All of them will say: Every island is a new reality.
Volcano Bay Water Theme Park - It’s a water theme park. Which is like a theme park with a whole lotta water. And that big thing in the middle is just like a real volcano. ‘Cause you know volcanoes have water slides, the kind that’ll make you chicken out at the last minute unless your friends (or kids) peer pressure you. And if you’re more a go-with-the-flow type, we got chill things like a winding river, wave pool—oh, and lounge chairs. Doesn’t get chiller than that. Remember, it’s a South Seas oasis (and nothing says oasis like a volcano).
Universal City Walk - It’s the one place where unforgettable family entertainment meets restaurants that don’t just make you say “Yum,” but “Wow.” Universal CityWalk, The Epicenter of Awesome.
