    Quick question if I may

    is universal all thrill rides or are there shows and things like Disney parks have? If it is all thrill rides then is island of adventure just more of the same?

    Neither are all thrill rides. Both have some shows, some thrill rides, some not so thrill rides. :lol:

    Both US and IOA are distinctly different. :yes:

    IOA has more thrill rides than Universal does but there are plenty of other tamer rides and shows to enjoy.

    www.universalorlando.com this will give you a rundown of what each park has to offer.

    My favorite at US (not sure if it's still there, as it's been a while) was the horror make-up show. It was great, in fact, I watched it 3 times.

    I just checked your link and yes, as you said, it's still there. It was simple, but really good. I'm easily impressed.
