Islands of Adventure is the most incredible park on the planet IMO. I has great theming, high capacity rides and excellent food. Every line moved at a steady pace and since I was staying at the Hard Rock Hotel, the room key helped quite a bit.

The rides are rated 1-5, 5 being the best and 1 being the worst.

The Incredible Hulk: 5/5 laps:75
This is my favorite coaster of all time. It is so amazing and the launch was so fun. It has speed, length and intensity. It is my favorite coaster of all time and i'm still not bored of it after 75 times.
The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman: 4/5
This is truly the greates non rollercoaster ride i have ever been on. It makes Back To The Future and Terminator seem really out of date and it really felt like you were droping in the end. The only problem was half the time i went on it, the drop scene wasn't playing, just the sounds and the vehicle moving. But it was still a great ride.
Dr. Doom's Fear Fall: 3/5
This is your normal S&S space shot ride with a theme.
Dudley Do Right's Ripsaw Falls: 4/5
This is a great water ride that guarentees you will get soaked. It is really fun and the line moves steadily.
Popeye and Bluto's Bilge Rat Barges: 5/5
A great ride on a hot day, this ride gets you even wetter than Ripsaw Falls! Luckily there are compartments to store the items that you don't want to get wet.
Jurrassic Park River Adventure: 3/5
I was hoping that i would get wetter than i got. Just a sprinkle. It was still a fun ride though.
Triceretops Discovery Trail: 2/5
This is not that great. All you get to do is listen to some guy talk about a triceretops. A real disappointment.
Posiden's Fury: 4/5
This is a neat show that takes you through 3 rooms of Posidens lair. In the last room, Posiden and Zuess battle over the ocean.
Dueling Dragons (Fire): 4/5
Let me start off by saying wow. This coaster is almost as good as the hulk. It was a little too short though but other than that, a fun ride. Dront seat is a must if you really want to experiance the dueling portions.
Dueling Dragons (Ice): 4/5
This is also a fun ride but too short as well. It really feels like you are going to hit the other train but only in the front.
The Flying Unicorn: 3/5
This is a great family coaster with swooping turns and gentle hills.
Cat In The Hat: 4/5
A great ride for anyone who likes Dr. Suess books. It includes scenes from many of his wonderful books.
One fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish: 3/5
This is a very enjoyable ride for kids.
Caro-Suess-El: 4/5
A normal carousel with Dr. Suess charecters that you ride on.

All in all, this is a fantastic park with great everything. If you haven't been there, go there and if you have been there, go again. This is probably the most fun i've had at a park yet and is definately going to be a yearly trip.

I found out on the Discovery Channel about the moving parts on the Caro-Seuss-El. Apparently EVERY character has some moving part (eyelashes, mouth, etc.) if you push/pull/twist the appropriate knob/button. I've ridden it a few times, but I WILL ride it again now.
