Islands of Adventure - Port of Entry

The towering lighthouse with the blazing fire at the top, modeled after the ancient lighthouse of Pharos in Alexandria, Egypt, marks the gates to Islands of Adventure and the beginning of your adventure.

Port of Entry is your gateway to the wonders of Islands of Adventure, part of Universal Resort Orlando

Through these gates lies Port of Entry, a sort of storytelling experience that combines evocative architecture and haunting music. Universal’s scenic designers have outdone themselves on this one. To centuries old Venice, they’ve added images of Istanbul, a soupçon of Samarkand, a touch of Timbuktu, and a dash of Denpassar to create a ravishingly beautiful example of fantasy architecture. Hurry through in the morning if you must, but if you are among the last to leave the park, you should really linger in Port of Entry and drink in the atmosphere.
