Universal Studios Florida

Universal Studios Florida

Universal Studios Florida is where movie magic comes to life! Immerse yourself in blockbuster hits like Despicable Me with Despicable Me Minion Mayhem, Transformers with Transformers: The Ride 3D, Fast & Furious with Fast & Furious – Supercharged, the incredible Harry Potter Series as you enter Diagon Alley and ride the fantastical Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts, and lots more!

Universal Studios Florida is incredible for families of all ages and caters for those wanting to ride thrilling roller coasters (like Hollywood Rip Ride Rocket), to guests who would much rather keep their feet planted firmly on the ground and enjoy a live show (such as The Blues Brothers Show)!

 Universal Studios Florida is home to multiple different rides and attractions:

 The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley

On a Universal Orlando resort holiday you would think Harry potter at Universal Studios Florida, and where many visitors love to spend time enjoying the wonderfully immersive theming and the fire-breathing dragon! Whilst at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley why not sample some of Universal Orlando’s best ice cream at Florean Fortescue's Ice-Cream Parlour or try some Butter Beer at the Leaky Cauldron. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley is also home to the incredible ride Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts!

Additionally, guests with a valid Universal Orlando 3-Park Explorer Ticket can hop on the Hogwarts Express and travel with Harry and the gang from Kings Cross Station in Universal Studios to Hogsmeade Station in Universal’s Islands of Adventure! This is an easy and efficient way to travel between the two Universal Orlando Resort theme parks.

 Despicable Me Minion Mayhem

 Despicable Me Minion Mayhem is a family friendly, simulation-type ride that will have you joining the Minions on a journey through Gru’s laboratory as you aid them in completing Gru’s latest mission! Despicable Me Minion Mayhem can be found right by the entrance to Universal Studios Florida and is a great way to start your day!

 Revenge of the Mummy: The Ride

 Revenge of the Mummy is an indoor roller-coaster that takes you through ancient ruins as you help Rick O'Connell escape the Mummy…again!

 Hollywood Rip Ride Rocket

 Hollywood Rip Ride Rocket is a drop roller-coaster where you will race around the track to the sound of music you get to choose! For those looking for thrills and fast rides… make sure to start your day here!

 Springfield U.S.A. and The Simpsons Ride

 Springfield U.S.A is a fun-filled land with a variety of eateries, including Lard Lad's Donuts and Krusty Burger, carnival games, and of course The Simpsons Ride. On The Simpsons Ride you will join The Simpson family on their quest to find out if someone is out to kill Krusty!

Fast & Furious – Supercharged

Join ‘the family’ in this fast-paced, thrilling Fast & Furious experience; see inside Dom’s garage and join old friends in saving the day when an old enemy resurfaces!

Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon

UK visitors may want to brush up on their viewing of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon before boarding their ‘flying theatre’ and racing Jimmy across New York! Your race will take you over the New York Skyscrapers, through the shop-lined streets and even into the Hudson as you race Jimmy to the finish line!

Transformers: The Ride 3D

MEN IN BLACK Alien Attack

The MEN IN BLACK Alien Attack is a fan favourite at Universal! MEN IN BLACK Alien Attack takes you through an under-attack New York where you will help the MIB Agents to wipe out the Aliens who have landed on earth!

ET Adventure
