Rain, Rain, GO AWAY

Don't let the name decieve you. It's not always sunny in the Sunshine State. Stay away from the theme parks during the summer months because the weather can change at the drop of a hat. My family and I visited Universal Studios Islands of Adventure in June and had rather a dissapointing time. The day began bright and sunny, warm with no humidity but throughout the day, several sporatic "thunder storms" came and went. The park shuts down all or most of the outside rides such as the big, thrilling, rollercoasters if the sky looks a just little grey. Even if there isn't any rain or lightning, they close the rides down and you really don't know when or if they're going to reopen. Then everybody at the park hordes the lines for all the indoor attractions as a result. Now you've spent $80 to wait in line on a soggy day... But if you do go to Universal Studios, take the time to wait in line for "Spider-man 3D". It is the best ride in the entire park. The ride isn't like sitting in front of a giant screen, putting on 3D glasses and jumping back when a dinosaur pops out of the screen. This ride truly puts you into the line of fire along side Spidey as he fights against foes like the Green Goblin. Explosions from one of the Green Goblin's pumpkin bombs and swinging between buildings like Spidey does all felt extremely real for a theme park attraction. This ride does not disappoint and was worth the soggy day at the park. report a problem
