Islands of Adventure

Monday - Since we are staying at a Universal hotel, we used early entry to get into the park an hour early. 7am bus, 8am admission. Lines for both. When we got to the sidecar ride in the Harry Potter section, it was delayed. But we waited in line until 8:45. 

Breakfast was at Green Eggs and Ham. Tater tots with chorizo, jalapeños, and salsa. Pretty good. We also went on a Dr Seuss ride. 

We waited in the queue for the Hogwarts ride but bailed at the end due to all the motion sickness warnings. The queue was worth the wait. 

Around 11, the sidecar roller coaster was open and we almost walked on. Not that long of a wait. It was fast, lots of high-G turns, and some reverse. Pretty wild. It’s said that this is the best roller coaster ride in FL. 

We watched the “frog choir”. Then headed back to Seuss land to re-ride a nice, calm ride before heading back to the hotel. It was a good day!


  1. I think my inner ear and I are past the point for such rides....

    1. I don’t think I’ll be going on any more metal coasters. The wooden ones, possibly…
