Orlando is no doubt an epicenter of leisure, entertainment and recreation as proven by the numerous theme parks and resorts found in the city. Adding to the plethora of lifestyle options in Orlando is Universal Orlando Resort. It is the biggest real estate property of Universal Studios Theme Park and is made up of a trio of Loews Hotels, an evening leisure attraction called Universal City Walk and a couple of theme parks namely Universal?s Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios Florida.

At the Universal Studios Florida at the heart of Universal Orland Resort, guests will enjoy a one-of-a-kind entertainment experience in the middle of an operational TV and film production complex. There are endless options of movie sets, rides and other attractions that will make anyone feel like a big screen superstar, keeping up with its promise of ?Ride the Movies.? There are also an array of shopping and dining choices, as well as several events held here regularly.

The adventure never ceases at Universal Orlando Resort, thanks to Universal?s Islands of Adventure, where every twist and turn, nook and cranny, sight and sound, is just teeming with palpable excitement. Debuting in May 1999, Universal?s Islands of Adventure is made of seven uniquely themed ?islands? corresponding to different facets of adventure. The seven islands are: The Port of Entry, Toon Lagoon, The Lost Continent, Marvel Super Hero Island, Seuss Landing, Jurassic Park and the latest addition to this magical land, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter which began casting spells on visitors on June 18, 2010.

For those who are looking for a ?splash? of fun, the Wet n? Wild water park in Universal Orlando Resort will not disappoint. The water park opened in 1977 and is recognized as one of the pioneering water parks of a grand scale in the United States. It was acclaimed by Travel Channel as one of the most extreme water theme parks in the U.S. and has set the backdrop for many music videos. Of course, Wet n? Wild would be nothing without its famous thrill slides. To be exact, there are 18 of such slides found in the water park which are clustered into four types: Kids Rides, Multi-Person Rides, Thrill Rides and Other Attractions. Some of the must-try slides here are Bomb Bay, The Surge, The Storm and Disco H20.

Another attraction in Universal Orland Resort is Universal CityWalk which was inaugurated in 1999. At night, it comes alive with its retail mecca and dining oasis featuring different cuisines. This is also where visitors can catch performances by the famous Blue Man Group which shows here up to three times per night.
