When we were visited Universal Studios Theme Park, and Universal’s Islands of Adventure, we had the chance to see some of the live shows. The Terminator 2 show in 3-D kept me on the edge of my seat. It was action packed, and noisy. The Fear Factor Live show was a little gross, but it was exciting, and ended with a bang. The Blues Brothers really put on a show as they performed on Delancy street.There were tons of other shows that the park had to offer, like Men In Black, Poseidon’s Fury and more.
Universal’s Islands of Adventure was like living in a fantasy land. It gave me flashbacks of my childhood as I came in contact with some of my favorite cartoon characters. I spent a lot of time in The area that was dedicated to Dr. Seuss, and his famous “Cat in the Hat.” It was the most colorful attraction in the park. Another favorite attraction at Universal’s Islands of Adventure was Jurassic Park. As you enter, the landscaping resembles a beautiful exotic, tropical island. The Jurassic Park’s Discovery Center is a great place to cool off. You can peek into the lab, and watch a baby dinosaur hatch. You can also enjoy seeing replicas of dinosaurs that lived millions of years ago.
Our adventure continued as we stepped on to comic strip lane, and gave ode to some of our favorite comic strips. Blondie and Dagwood, Betty Boop, Beetle Baily and more.
As we continued to walk around the park, my husband got excited to see all of his favorite superhero characters. Spiderman, Superman, X-men, and The Incredible Hulk. Spiderman was giving a personal appearance at one of the souvenir shops.
