Lines were easier to get through than at Disney world. Loved the option to purchase drinking cup to be able to refill on our own at spots around the park. Keeps from waiting in Long lines for a drink. Grandkids loved the play place, giving the adults time to rest a bit while they played.

We enjoyed the park but would have liked access to fast passes without having to pay exorbitant prices. The Memory Maker photo option was great and we enjoyed the extra photo spots. Very easy to use. The crowds became too much in the afternoon.

"Express Pass is a SCAM at peak times"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed February 17, 2019 NEW
The express pass is great during normal times. At peak times like a long holiday weekend they do not tell you until you get into line that even the express lanes can take 45 minutes to an hour. Pay all that extra money (ridiculous $$) and still need to wait. The park is great which is why they got 3 stars, but Universal should be ashamed for taking park in a scam like this. Give people what they pay for. The food is over the top expensive. Disney is expensive, but Universal takes advantage of people. I’ll be back because of the kids, but will make sure I am watch for the busy times Universal doesn’t tell you about when they take your money.

There were good points and not so good. We enjoyed a few rides (Spider-Man, King Kong..) but overall not our favorite park. Some areas are so tight you can’t get through, let alone look at any stores.Water rides are fun, but you will definitely get wet!
