From the magical world of Harry Potter™ to prehistoric lands of Jurassic Park®, get ready for an unforgettable experience.

Start your day at the Port of Entry®. Its towering centerpiece, the Lighthouse, beckons visitors night or day. This area has no rides but is a great place for shopping or having a snack.

Find your inner superhero at Marvel Super Hero Island®. Get your blood pumping on The Incredible Hulk Coaster®. Help vanquish villains in 3-D at The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man® thrill ride. During the daily superhero parade, meet your favorite Marvel characters.

Prehistory meets the present in Jurassic Park Discovery Center®. This island is modeled after the theme park in the original Jurassic Park® film. As you enjoy its roller coasters and water rides, you’ll meet Triceratops, Tyrannosaurus rex and other dinosaurs.

If you have read the Harry Potter™ books and anxiously waited for your letter from Hogwarts™, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ makes that dream a reality. Race through Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey™ or sample a butterbeer in Hogsmeade™ village. From the outside, the hulking stone Hogwarts™ castle looks as if it’s been here for centuries. Inside, its roller coasters, games and other attractions bring the books to life. For speedy admission to the rides, arrive early in the day.

The Lost Continent® brings ancient myths to life. Brave Poseidon’s Fury® and watch The Eighth Voyage of Sindbad® Stunt Show. Children of all ages love Seuss Landing™. Rides, restaurants and live shows recreate the world imagined by Dr. Seuss.
