What’s the best theme park in the world? According to TripAdvisor, it’s Universal Orlando‘s Islands of Adventure.
According to this year’s TripAdvisor’s Travelers’ Choice awards, Universal’s Islands of Adventure took the top spot for the fourth consecutive year. Winners are determined via an algorithm incorporating reviews and ratings over a year-long period.
This is due largely in part to a certain boy wizard casting a spell over Orlando, who has bested the Mouse year after year. And while Magic Kingdom ranks a close second, the other Disney theme parks are much further down the list than fans would expect them to be.
And, surprisingly enough, Epcot is completely absent from the list.
