Fun in Florida - Rides and Attractions.
Islands of Adventure is part of Universal studios which is also packed full with amazing rides and attractions to keep the whole family entertained.
Marvel Super Hero Island is jam packed with spectacular rides to suit all ages. The Incredible Hulk is a gigantic roller coaster that accelerates from 0 to 40mph in just two seconds! The hulk reaches 150 ft and loops several times. The amazing adventure of Spider-man, also located in Marvel Super Hero Island, is a high tec 3D ride for everyone above 40' which allows you to travel alongside the web-slinger, through the streets whilst being accompanied by many marvel characters.
The newest attraction at Islands of Adventure is Harry Potter world which contains many different rides and shops which make you feel as though you are in Hogwarts! You will be able to visit iconic locations such as: Dumbledore' s office, the Defence Against the Dark Arts classroom, the Gryffindor common room and many more. There is an indoor ride where you travel around Hogwarts on a broomstick and twist and turn though different scenes. I would recommend queuing up for ' single rider' on this because the queue is usually considerably shorter and there are wide partitions between the seats so you cannot see the person next to you anyway!
Duelling Dragons is a large, double roller coaster where two tracks intertwine. One track is called ' Fire' and the other is ' Ice' so you can choose which track you would prefer to experience. I advise you head to this world as soon as the park opens because the queues get very long!
If you fancy cooling off, there are many water rides which get you drenched. The Jurassic park river adventure takes you on a relaxing boat journey through the past to see different dinosaurs, until the boat goes off track and you end up falling 85ft, barely missing the mouth of a huge T-Rex!
If you are brave enough to hop aboard Popeye & Bluto' s Bilge-Rat Barges, you will experience the white-river rapids, where a soaking is waiting round every corner!
There are also many adventures for the younger children, including The Cat in the Hat ride, where you watch thing 1 & thing 2 destroy the house rush to clean it up before their mother comes home! There are four different play areas for the children to explore and play, as well as many shows for the whole family to watch.
Have Fun. ! !
