Universal Parks and Resorts, headquartered in Orlando, is behind all the theme parks of Universal Studios. With the aim to grant entertainment, not just through films and movies, Universal Studios has also been a provider of thrill and excitement through tummy-flipping rides and heart-skipping fun. It was June 7, 1990 when Orlando’s Universal Studios opened to the public and it has been gathering millions of guests since then.
As one of the most-visited theme parks in the United States, Universal Studios has never stopped in granting the kind of excitement every visitor expects from its huge grounds. The visitors become instant superstars as they are treated in a wonderful array of colorful rides, live shows and top-of-the line attractions. As one enjoys each and every Universal Studios treat, a line-up of popular characters and famous Universal Studios movies serve as the amusing backdrop. To experience the most-thrilling ride right in the picture of a popular movie is a fantasy that comes to life.
Serving as a family’s all-in-one getaway, Universal Studios guarantees unparalleled fun for all ages. The wild roller coasters of Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit and Revenge of the Mummy are always a hit to adventure-lovers, while The Simpsons Ride is for those who prefer a milder-yet-fun kind of a ride. For little ones, Woody Woodpecker’s Nuthouse Coaster is ideal, as well as the hilarious ride of Despicable Me Minion Mayhem. For some entertainment, there’s the Horror Makeup Show and The Blues Brothers Show. If the little ones want to slow things down, they can rest and relax to the park’s major play areas or sing and clap in Barney’s show.
Families going to Universal Studios enjoy an added treat courtesy of the nearby Islands of Adventure. Opened on May 28, 1999, Islands of Adventure is all about exploration, discovery, journey and everything that spells adventure. Here, park goers are treated by amazing shows and interactive attractions, not to mention world class stimulating rides. Needless to say, there is an escapade waiting to happen in every Islands of Adventure’s corner.
Jurassic Park is a famous attraction in Islands of Adventure, together with Marvel Super Hero Island. Harry Potter fans embark in their own adventure within the walls of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter while little ones can always be a Dr. Seuss star in Seuss Landing. The water splashes from the rides of Toon Lagoon and Dudley Do-Right's Rip Saw Falls completes the journey in this adventure-filled park.
Both Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure are packed with eateries and restaurants to satisfy the thirst and hunger after a long day of rides, entertainment and fun. Most importantly, the memories of the family’s fun-filled day can be brought home as Universal Studios shops for souvenirs, tokens, as well as toys and playthings are present in every turn.
