First I have been in Florida for the last 2 weeks it was so nice 60s and &70s all the time. Much better than here in Wisconsin where I am freezing right now.

Well I guess I will start with Boomers because I went there first on 12/27.It is a small little Chuckie Cheese type amusement park but is very good for only having one coaster.It is called the Dania Beach Hurricane, Its a woodie cyclone that is very fun. I went on it about 10 times in a row no wait. I would sugesst it to you if you have like half a day and your in southern Florida you will enjoy.

Anyway now on to IOA The first day I got to the park at 8:26 or so my parking pass says.I ran to Hulk no wait Then I headed away from the crowds toward Dueling Dragons.First up Fire then I did that thing whare you re enter the line to go on Ice which. I did like 5 times switching coaster each time. Dueling Dragons Never has a long line but Its such a good coaster.

Then I went on JPRA which is the best ride the drop is awesome even though its only 85 feet. I love the Jurassic Park Island It is themed so well I feel Like I am actually in Jurassic Park.

Then back to Marvel SH Island Spider man already had a line of over 60 mins so I didnt go on that. But I headed for DR DOOM. Which is a great ride event though its short.

It was 11:00 and I had to meet my parents a Universal Studios at Terminator. First thing I did was get the Express for MIB which was for 4:35. Then I went on ET adventure. The park got really full so we didnt go on much beside Earthquake 45min wait. Ok ride kinda aging same with ET but was still good. Then we went on MIB great ride a mix of Buzz lightyear, Cat in the hat and Spiderman. We did the baby swap thing great Idea if you have little kids or babys. Last up Twister fun very exciting nice show.

Day 2 all IOA. First thing we did was Hulk then we got Express passes for Spiderman Which were for 11:00 I really cant remeber what I did that day cause we did so much almost every ride. Hardly any waits cause we used the Express and baby swap alot. The only bad thing was it rained and the park was supposed to be open till 1am which I really wanted to do.

Day 3 We did alittle of Universal Studios like Jaws, MIB, ET, and Terminator 2 3d all great rides.

Then we did IOA Agian we got on lots of rides but that day was my picture day I think I took over 230 pics on this whole trip.I love Digital Cameras.I did the Single rides thing on Spiderman Thats a fast wait Thats a nice way to pass lines if Its offred.

We bought the 2day pass where you get the 3rd day free good Idea Univerasal Orlando Is the best.That was my 5th or 6th time there I gets better every time.

My top 11 coasters
1)Hulk 2)Raging Bull 3)Dueling Dragons 4+5)B:TR 6)Iron Wolf 7)V2 8)RNRC 9)Viper (SFGAm) 10+11)American Eagle
