Will Universal in Orlando be overlooked since Islands of Adventure seems to be getting quite popular?

I sure do hope so.

Universal Studios is outdated.
There are currently 11 coasters with the name Batman, 8 with the name Superman and 22 with the name Boomerang. Batman and Superman: The Ultimate Chiller Knight Flight Krypton Escape Ride.

It certainly is not worth a visit when you have IOA right next door.
Only in my opinion of course.

It depends on your taste. Universal Studios obviously doesnt cater to the coaster enthusiast. I visited this park back in 96(before IOA opened) and I had a blast. Terminator 3D is awesome, Kongfrontation is cool, Back to the Future was cool, Jaws is pretty neat, and E.T. was well themed. Sometimes other attractions are a great alternative to coasters. I would recommend this park for what it has.

The wait for MIB in the afternoon is 1 hour. People do that ride over and over to get a good score.
The new field trip destination is IOA, taking that title from Disney. You'll see lot's of schools there on a Friday. But US is still busy.
If you have multi-day tickets (both parks), the idea is to hit IOA in the morning, then US in the afternoon, then back to IOA as the wait times drop back down and the field trip people leave.
These people only go to IOA, so you can go to Universal in the afternoon when IOA becomes gridlocked (1 hour waits).
The attractions at US, although not thrill rides, are still interesting to see, and their play grounds are fun for the kids, like my 9 year old daughter.

I did not Universal Studios. there are only a few fun attractions, the rest are average at best. and the park doesn't handle large crowds well - it is always feels extremely crowded.
IOA on the other hand is a blast and they don't even have that many attractions YET. the crowds move well and the themeing is to die for.

US is just dull, dull, dull. Haven't done MIB but the only attractions I really really enjoyed were ET and Jaws.
Don't touch the watch.

ET was great, and the Alfred Hitchcock and Nickelodeon attractions were good also. The Earthquake, however, was hands down, the best attraction at the park. And who could pass up a chocolate malted at Schwab's?

If you like movies Universal is great.
I don't see US getting looked over because it's entrance is right by IOA.

IOA is awsome! I only did E.T., Back to the Future and M.I.B. when I went to US! But i get to go back to IOA In early june!
