So glad a random guy on the LA street told us to go here :)
A couple of days ago I went to Universal Studios in Orlando! It was amazing. The Islands of Adventure definitely topped Universal Studios itself. The main reason is that it has the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. I can’t even believe that I got to go there let alone eat at the Three Broomsticks, drink Butterbeer, tour Hogwarts castle and get drunk in the Hog’s Head. I also rode the Dragon Challenge rollercoaster to prove that I was worthy of wearing my Gryffindor colours! Harry Potter has been a pretty big part of my life since I was, I think, 13. When they opened up the Wizarding World I never thought I’d get to go there! A couple of the best days of my life.
Marvel Island was also a cool part of Islands of Adventure. The Incredible Hulk rollercoaster was insane and I can’t believe I rode it….twice! I actually rode is completely drunk the second time. I thought it would make me sick but it had the opposite effect and I was super confident! We also had photos with all the super heroes.
Now we’re in Miami which was our “relaxing” leg of the holiday. So far we have eaten, shopped, gone to the movies twice and rode Segways!! The segway riding was heaps of fun but I stacked it pretty hard and my whole life flashed before my eyes. Still having a good time but missing home a lot.
