Explore Universal's three theme parks & CityWalk

Giant green roller coaster at universal is going around a loop with a group of people.

Universal Islands of Adventure

Imagine being in your favorite TV shows and movies in real life, except you also get to enjoy the ultimate ride-y things like twists, turns and drops. Plus you can face villains who’re even more menacing than your kids pre-churros. Save the earth daily or even hourly. Oh! And we can’t forget about dragons. One of them even breathes real fire. It’s super cool and really hot at the exact same time.

Universal Studios Florida

This is where it goes down. And up. And down again. To those who say “Yay adventure!” we’re here for you. Super Heroes. 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. All of them say, “welcome to a new reality.”

Universal's Volcano Bay

Universal’s Volcano Bay. 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. Yep. 13 stories above this South Seas oasis, your friends (or your kids) are gonna see if you chicken out at the last second, or if you take the plunge down the face of Krakatoa. More of a go-with-the-flow type? No worries. The beach, winding river and wave pool are always tempting escapes.

The perfect combination of crave-able restaurants, eateries and special levels of entertainment that will have everyone in the family saying “woah!” Yummy Italian and Mexican cuisine plus comfort foods right off the grill—and right under the big game. Here, lunch and dinners are always delicious, but the desserts will blow your mind. Just want to get away? The latest movies are playing. Mini-golf is swinging. And there’s always music in the air. At night, CityWalk’s clubs light up for everyone 21+ . The bars are rockin’. The dance floor’s calling. And it’s time to let loose under the stars. Universal CityWalk. This is the Epicenter of Awesome.
