Universal Studios was the first theme park created in Universal Orlando Resort back in 1990 and it’s formed by 8 themed areas.
In Production Central, you’ll find the famous roller coaster “Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit” only suitable for the bravest, and “Transformer’s: The Ride” a 3D experience in which you’ll have to save the planet from Megatron and his villainous Decepticons.
This is the authentic paradise for Harry Potter‘s fans. Lose yourself in Diagon Alley and buy the perfect wand at Ollivander’s. Visit King’s Cross Station and board the Hogwarts Express to travel from Universal Studios to Islands of Adventure Theme Park where you can continue your journey through the wizarding world of Harry Potter. Don’t miss the chance to experience “Harry Potter and The Escape from Gringotts” a multidimensional 3D thrill ride which is considered one of the best rides of the park. You’ll have to escape the extreme security bank and, of course, evade Voldemort and Bellatrix Lestrange to get back safe to Diagon Alley.
Looking for the perfect plan for the whole family? Join Gru, his daughters and the adorable minions in a fun 3D adventure or take a picture with SpongeBob and his friends. There is also an entire area with rides to the little ones: “Woody Woodpecker’s Kid Zone”, where you can get immersed in the E.T. Adventure or ride the Nuthouse Coaster.
You cannot leave without visiting America’s most famous family in “Springfield: Home of The Simpsons”. After boarding The Simpsons Ride and Kang & Kodos Twirl ‘n’ Hurl, it’s time for a walk through Springfield’s Primary School, Moe’s Tavern and Kwik-E-Mart. Universal Studios Orlando is the only theme park with recreations of these Springfield’s famous locations and the only place where you can have a Duff beer.
Universal’s Islands of Adventure has been elected TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice as the best amusement park in the world from 2015 to 2017. Prepare for a place where superheroes, beasts and magical creatures stand before you.
Are you ready for Marvel Super Heroe Island? The Incredible Hulk Coaster will catapult you out with the force of a fighter jet. Hulk-like power will propel you upside down into a weightless zero-gravity roll, racing faster and faster down the track. Not enough for you? Doctor Doom’s Fearfall will blast you 185 feet into the sky and then, without a second to catch your breath, hurl you back down with a force stronger than gravity itself. Don’t leave without visiting The Amazing Adventures of Spider-man, a high-flying virtual reality ride in which you might want to be aware of the 400-foot freefall.
Don’t miss Jurassic Park River Adventure, a scenic water cruise that starts innocently watching a baby stegosaurus and its mother share a moment. Then out of nowhere, you’ll be bumped off an 85-foot drop into the restricted area of Jurassic Park, where suddenly a T. Rex will stand before you and you’ll have to escape from his razor-sharp teeth.
Traveling with kids? You’ll find plenty of rides and activities for them in “Seuss Landing” and “Toon Lagoon”.
You will find the other half of the wizarding world of Harry Potter: Hogsmeade at Islands of Adventure. In this land, you’ll find exciting rides like “Flight of the Hippogriff” and the amazing adventure “Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey”. Explore the classrooms and corridors of Hogwarts Castle and refresh with a cold butterbeer.
Finish your day at the park watching the nighttime lights at Hogwarts Castle, a show that transforms the castle in a dazzling display of ligths, special effects and music
Welcome to a tropical oasis where thrills and relaxation flow in pure harmony. A new kind of paradise based on the conviction that water is life and life is joy. Opened in 2017, Volcano Bay is the third theme park of Universal Orlando Resort.
This park has four areas of fun for all ages: The Volcano, Wave Village, River Village, and Rainforest Village.
In The Volcano area, you’ll find the most thrilling rides like Kala & Tai Nui slides, where twin trap doors plunge two guests down clear, intertwining tubes before sending them into the turquoise waters below, and Punga Racers, 4 slides with different exciting twists. Krakatau Aqua Coaster will let you experience the volcano power on a four-person canoe that slides upward through the mists and into the dark twists and turns within the volcano before emerging through a waterfall. And last but not least, Ko’okiri Body Plunge will drive you crazy with a 70-degree dizzying fall from 125 feet high.
Moving on to the next area, Wave Village will bring you a relaxing experience at Waturi Beach, an ideal place to chill on a sunbed or enjoy the wave pool.
River Village offers you a ride through Kopiko Wai winding river and 2 great play areas for kids: Runamukka Reef and Tok Tiki Reef. Besides, here you’ll find Honu, where you can surf the underwater currents on a four-passenger raft, speeding through an open flume and streak along two massive walls emblazoned with Waturi turtles.
Finally, you cannot miss Rainforest Village. Role in a serpentine adventure at Ohyah & Ohno drop slides that will end 6 feet above the pool and take a ride on Maku Puihi, a multi-person rafting ride that will get your heart pumping.
City Walk is located outside the entrances of Universal Studios and Island of Adventure. It’s an entertainment area with plenty of shops, restaurants, theaters, and clubs.
Here, you’ll find many clothing stores. There’s also a Universal Studios Store where you can get their branded products, plus movies, TV, and characters merchandise.
