Sitting side by side, Universal Studios and Islands of
Adventure, are located just beyond the City walk. The City walk area is
a myriad of unique shops, night clubs and restaurants. If you want more
of the studios and their rides, which are geared more toward the younger
and older ages, this is the park to spend the day in. If you want
thrills and chills, close encounters of the face to face, then head over
to the Islands with their spectacular coaster rides. With your feet
dangling below you, you will speed through the area at one point coming
within feet of the other ride. These "Dueling Dragons" are a thrill to
anyone loving the high speed excitement of speed. The Doctor Doom ride
is an amazing free fall that takes you up about 30 feet in the air and
drops you so quick that a 200 man is literally lifted off his seat.
Don't worry, the shoulder restraints will hold you in place.
Citywalk has many different areas in its expanse; including the shops,
clubs and variety of restaurants. In the entryway, it has a 20
screen AMC cineplex, shops, then the clubs start, which include
