in the Earthquake attraction, you'll find out how some of the best tricks in the movies are made. The attraction features the expirience of being inside an earthquake that hits 8.3 on the richter scale.
next to Disney, Universal is the other major theme park in Central Florida. There are a wide variety of shows and attractions in and around the park. Several areas were re-created to enhance ones visit. This picture represents 1930s NYC.
Feel what it's like to be in the eye of the storm as a tornado touches down sending cows flying and pylons crashing down. It was good but not as good as it maybe could have been.
One minute you're riding the Subway into the station the next you are being tossed about like a ragdoll as a giant earthquake hits.
The roof caves in and a lorry crashes in before a pipe bursts and the water comes flowing down extinguishing the flames.
Before you board the train you are treated to a presentation of how earthquakes are filmed in movies.
When your at Universal Studios, the beattle juice show is pretty good. It's only around 20-30 minutes but the show is worth it.
As in all my tips on the rides and shows i won't give away all the good information or surprises , but this show is worth the time.
Revenge of the Mummy was a great ride.Expect the unexpected, thats all i will say.There are to many things which happen.This is a high speed roller coaster and more.
hold on and enjoy.
Lines were long as this is the new ride. So if you don't want to wait go express.....
The hulk in islands of adventure is a great roller coaster. it is one of the best...Twists, turns up and over and when you think your done your not....Get ready to blast off and travel like the hulk... Great ride...
For me, I think Spider man is the best ride in the park. I love the 3-D effects and how real it all feels. Everyone loved this ride and it's even o.k for younger kids...Lots of action and turns an twists, be ready for for spider man...
Lines were very long , express the way to go
Jurassic park water ride was fun... If it's hot its very refreshing or should i say wet..The first time through i did not bring my camera so we went again and took pictures along the way...
Make sure it's water resistant and be ready at the end......
Similar to Universal Studios in Los Angeles this is a great way to spend a day simply enjoying yourself.
There are similar rides to those in LA with a few extras. There is the Jaws experience as well as the Twister ride, that add a little variety, along with the King Kong thrill ride.
A must see!
thishow was very good. it is in the islands of adventure park.
It is a little like a tour and journey. some smaller children were scared as it doe's get dark. it is a good show and would recommend eveyone to go and see it
The Prop Show at Van Helsing was very informative and funny.It was a great show and one prop and it's usage was very good and looked so real.
The show is 20 minutes or so and is a good break from the outlines and waiting.I would recommend seeing it.
They even showed how they make the werewolves faces change.
Animal planet live was a very good show. It was funny and very interesting. The show consist of many different animals performing stunts and tricks. They even show how they film birds in flight. Great show for everyone.
The Sinbad show was very good. It is more for the younger children but still entertains the older crowd. Depending on where you sit you may get wet. Stunts, fire,water and comody make for a pretty good show.
Universal studios is a great place, there is so much to see and now with the new parks it's even better...
We opened and closed the park the day we were there, can't wait to go back...
Every ride and attraction is fantastic, the 3-D attractions are great, makes you feel as if you are there...
If your down in orlando , take the trip to Universal you won't regret it..
If you are visiting Universal / Islands of Adventure during one of the busy periods consider staying at one of the 3 on site hotels.
What we didn't realise was that you can check in very early on your first day (9am in our case!) and get your room key (even though they won't tell you the room number if the room is not ready!). You then leave your bags with the bell staff and go into the park using your key as an unlimited Universal Express (Fast Pass) on all the popular rides. Your key is also valid on the day you check out all day. So once again we left our bags and spent the day in the parks before heading to the airport.
Please note that you still need to buy your park tickets!
P.S. I did feel a little guilty about going on some rides 3 times in less than 1 hour when the main line was over 2 hours long!
P.P.S. The new Mummy ride at Universal is AWESOME. This sets the new standards for in the dark roller coasters!
