On our Crowd Calendar we take every day of the year and rank the size of the crowds on a scale of 1 to 10. But what does that mean in terms of wait times? On this page we list each of Islands of Adventure's attractions, and then show you what the wait time will be for each crowd level.

These numbers represent the average peak wait times for each attraction — in other words, the highest waits expected for Islands of Adventure by crowd level. The numbers are the range you'll typically expect as a peak wait time.

These numbers represent minutes. We've taken the highest wait times for each day we have data, split them up by the Universal's Islands of Adventure crowd level estimate we have for those days, then calculated the average range by level.

If you're going on a day where Universal's Islands of Adventure is estimated as a '3' crowd level, the times under the '3' column will be a good estimate of the longest wait you'll see for each attraction. As you can see, some attractions vary a lot more than others.
