Universal Studios is Great
I wanted to tell you all my opinions of this great theme park, what it has to offer and also my tips for getting round the park.
Let’s start with Universal Studios. This park has been open since the 1970s and has grown and grown to be one of the premier parks in Orlando. I could write a book on what this park has to offer but I will just tell you about all the highlights of the park and of course all the great rides.
Universal is based on a movie and television show set and this is where you’re the star of the show. Firstly I will give a run down all the rides and attractions and then run through what they have to offer and thrill you.
Shrek 4D, Revenge of the Mummy – the ride, Men in Black – Alien Attack, Jimmy Neutron’s Nicktoon Blast, Terminator 2 – 3D, ET Adventure, Back to the Future – the ride, Twister the Ride, Earthquake – the big one, Animal Planet – Live, Jaws, and Fear Factor Live.
Shrek 4D is a fantastic 4 D show based on the movie and Character’s, you are taken into a introduction arena where the story continues about Shrek, Donkey, Princess Fiona etc.
After this you enter a huge theatre where you sit down and have the thrill of your life watching Shrek and Donkey on the big screen as they save Fiona and the day, not to be missed. 10/10.
Revenge of the Mummy – the ride. Based on the movie and is my favorite ride in Universal. This ride takes into the movie set of Revenge of the Mummy where you walk round tombs and caves where there are all types of Character’s waiting to greet you and scare you as well. Once you have walked through you take the ride into the tomb of the Mummy, this is where the real fun begins, all kinds of special effects and creepy crawlies come out the wall before your catapulted into oblivion and taken on the ride of your life.
This ride really is unmissable and is worth the entrance fee alone. 10/10
Men in Black – Alien Attack. If you’ve seen the movie then you know all about the Character’s. You jump on a ride and begin to exterminate the aliens as they attack you from all sides. The carriage your sat in spins round so be on your guard, your equipped with a stun gun to shoot the incoming aliens and you gain points as you go along, beware of the huge alien, when this strikes you to press the big red button to wipe this one out.
Great ride. 8/10.
Jimmy Neutron’s Nicktoon Blast. This ride is cool for the kids and will one for all the family. You sit down in a theatre and strap yourself in as you enter Jimmy’s world based on the television show. Good ride. 7/10
Terminator 2 – 3D. Again based on the movie you enter the theatre and put on your 3D glasses, sit back and watch the show as special effects leap out at you literally. It’s a battle against the aliens as Sarah Connor fights to save the planet and the human race from total extinction.
Great show. 8/10
ET Adventure. Another ride that is based on the famous movie, great for all the family
Good ride. 7/10
Back to the Future – the ride. Another favorite of mine this one takes you into past and the future. You enter the car that is identical to the one in the movie and then taken on a journey with Doc Brown at the controls.
Great ride. 8/10
