Park of the Month, August 2013: Universal's Islands of Adventure

Hogwarts Castle

This month, we'll be focusing on Islands of Adventure at the Universal Orlando Resort, with a number of in-depth features, top 5 lists and forum discussions.

When it opened back in 1999, Islands of Adventure was designed to transform Universal Orlando into a true multi-day destination. It didn't really achieve that, though, until the debut of the wildly popular Wizarding World of Harry Potter in 2010. Attendance at the park has since gone through the roof, prompting Universal to announce a major expansion to the land. A number of other major investments are also expected.

We're excited to hear your views on the park, and all of our coverage will be designed to trigger debate about its past, present and future. That starts with today's look at the top 5 rides and attractions at Islands of Adventure. We'd also love to hear your views on how you'd change and improve the park in our forum discussion.

Don't forget, you can find full details of all of the rides and restaurants at the park, along with reader ratings and reviews, in our extensive Islands of Adventure guide.
