The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

This area at Universal Studios Florida has the most currently popular ride in the park. The top pick for rides at Universal Studios Florida is Harry Potter and the Escape From Gringotts. This is a totally immersive ride that integrates 3D film along with a moving vehicle. This ride is not for the faint of heart; the young ones may want to hang back for this one.

The family could spend an entire day in the Harry Potter area of the park. There are a variety of activities, including using a wand to do your own magic. There are many displays throughout the area that will respond to different moves of the wand. There is another popular ride that takes you through Hogwarts castle called The Forbidden Journey. This ride at Universal Studios Florida features a broom ride through a Quidditch game. The ride has a lot of motion; if you are prone to motion sickness but want to see the castle, you can take a tour of the castle and skip the ride.

The Revenge of the Mummy

This ride is modeled after the Mummy movies, starring Brendan Fraser. If you loved the movies you are really going to love the ride. This is another roller coaster with film and other props. There are areas of complete darkness that people say make the roller coaster ride all that more fun. Universal Studios Florida is one of the few places in the world to have a hair-raising experience like this.

E.T. Adventure

This ride has been around since 1990 when Universal Studios Florida first opened. Not only that but it is the only ride that has made it this long, making it a “must go.” This is a slower ride, fit for all ages and stomach types. There are no screens anywhere, just the wonder of extraterrestrial life and fun.

The Simpsons

Universal Studios Florida has a whole Springfield section of the park. There is Moe’s Tavern, Krusty Burger, Kwik-E-Mart, Lard Lad Donuts, Duff Gardens, and The Simpsons ride. The ride takes you on a trip flying through Springfield while you watch a Simpsons episode. It is simulated motion, so it won’t be too much for the kids.
