Universal Orlando's second theme park is the company's first not to be based around a movie studio. Instead, it seeks to take visitors into the movies themselves, with 6 themed "islands" located around a lagoon. After passing through the Port of Entry, guests can head to Marvel Super Hero Island, Toon Lagoon, Jurassic Park, The Lost Continent, Seuss Landing and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. The Wizarding World has become the focal point of Islands of Adventure, with Hogwarts Castle dominating the park's skyline.
History: Islands of Adventure opened in May 1999, as Universal looked to expand its Orlando resort into a multi-day destination. Adopting a theme of exploration and adventure, the park incorporated high-tech attractions such as the multi-million dollar dark ride The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman. The June 2010 debut of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter helped push attendance levels at the park above neighbouring Universal Studios Florida.
