If you are headed to Universal and you are young at heart or you have young children along with you one place you must take some time to visit is Seuss Landing. Located in Universal Islands of Adventure Park, Seuss Landing is home to all things Dr. Seuss. The themeing of this area of the park is amazing and adorable.
When it was being constructed it was decided that there would be no visible straight lines in order to let the guest feel as if they were right on the pages of a Dr. Seuss book. A lot of the structures were sculpted out of large pieces of foam and then coasted in sealer and bright, bright colors. Benches, decorative walls, and the outsides of all of the buildings have this fun element. They even brought in palm trees that were damaged by Florida hurricanes and re-used them at Seuss Landing since they now had a unique look and feel to them.
Once at Universal and in Seuss Landing, all of the rides, attractions, and restaurants are themed and named after Dr. Seuss characters and books. You can take a ride on the Caroseussal and you can hop the Trolley Train Ride that takes a spin inside the stoopendous Circus McGurkus café. Hungry? Make a quick pit stop at Green eggs and ham for a burger or at the Hop on Pop Ice cream Shop. There are fun places to purchase souvenirs and of course lots of “thing one” and “thing two” t-shirts, toys, and sundries. There is also a shop filled with all the Dr. Seuss books ever made where daily story time happens.
Universal also has lots of out of this world characters so keep your eyes open for the fun loving and zany Seuss Characters. You will see them pop up and around Seuss landing. They may be riding the train or reading a book to children and they enhance your overall feeling of being immersed in the pages of a Seuss original. The whimsical feeling of Seuss landing at Universal Islands of adventure is an experience that every child and every parent should experience together. It brings to life the special story time you share together!
