The Best Rides at Universal Orlando Resort
Don’t go home without trying these incredible rides!
There are so many amazing rides to experience at the Universal theme parks, but these are our favourites…

If you’re planning a visit to the Universal Orlando Resort, you’ll know that these parks are home to some of the most thrilling attractions in the world. From epic rollercoasters to exhilarating 4D adventures, Universal has it all. We’ve put together a list of the best rides at the Universal theme parks (in our opinion!) and a visit wouldn’t be complete until you’ve tried them all…


The Incredible Hulk Coaster


The Incredible Hulk Coaster at Universal Orlando


This colossal coaster really is ‘incredible’ but be warned, it’s not for the faint-hearted. The ride starts with a bang when you’re blasted with gamma radiation. Prepare for a dramatic 150-foot launch before reaching speeds of up to 67mph! That’s not all though, there’s 7 inversions in total and 2 subterranean trenches. This is the kind of ride that sends screams echoing across the park! Think you’ve got what it takes to face the Hulk?


Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit


Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit at Universal Orlando


This is one of Universal’s most popular rides and we absolutely love it. One of the things we love most, is that you can pick your own song that will play through speakers as you race around the track. Choose between adrenaline-pumping tracks like ‘Pump It’, ‘Rock Star’ and ‘U Can’t Touch This’ to name just a few.

Standing at an impressive 17-storeys high, this huge coaster will certainly catch your eye. Get ready to ascend towards the sky at a 90-degree angle, before reaching speeds of up to 65mph.


Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts


Harry Potter rides at Universal Orlando Resort


This is an absolute must-do for any Harry Potter fan! It’s also one of the most popular rides at the park, so we’d recommend riding it first thing to avoid the queues. This incredible attraction takes you on a thrilling adventure deep into the underground vaults of Gringotts Bank. You’ll hurtle through tunnels at top speed, before facing a fire-breathing dragon and even the Dark Lord himself! Whatever you do, don’t leave without trying this!


Revenge of the Mummy


Revenge of the Mummy ride at Universal Orlando


Don’t be fooled by the fact that this is an indoor ride, because it’s one of the scariest at the Universal Orlando Resort! Expect high-speed launches, sudden drops and total darkness as you make your way through a Mummy’s lair. You’ll have to try and escape the clutches of the evil Mummy Imhotep and conquer the obstacles he’s put in your way. Look out for swarms of insects, warrior mummies and scorching flames as you try to make it out! The amazing special effects and exciting story make this a must-try.  


Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey

Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey is another extremely popular ride and one you really need to try. If you’ve always imagined what it would be like to go to Hogwarts, now’s your chance, as this ride is actually inside the iconic castle. You’ll walk through the school corridors, before soaring above the castle grounds alongside Ron and Harry. Prepare to come face to face with magical creatures and plenty of surprises along the way on this unforgettable wizarding adventure.


The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man


Spider Man ride at Universal Orlando


This ride has been a firm favourite with guests ever since it opened and once you try it for yourself, you’ll see why. The graphics are incredible and as soon as you put on your 3D glasses, you’ll feel as though you’ve been transported to another world. In fact, you’ll find yourself in New York City, where the famous Statue of Liberty has been stolen. It’s down to the friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man (with your help of course!) to save the day. There’s lots of special effects too, including fire, water, wind and fog!


The Simpsons Ride

This ride is great fun for the whole family and even if you’ve never seen an episode of the Simpsons (how could you not have?), you’ll love this wacky 4D adventure. You’ll find yourself up close to the Simpson family as you board a rollercoaster at the famous Krustyland theme park. It’s not long before things start to go wrong and you’re sent crashing through the park! The amazing graphics, 3D and 4D effects put you right in the middle of the action and make it seem like you’re really there.


Fast & Furious- Supercharged


Fast and Furious ride at Universal Orlando


Fast & Furious- Supercharged is the newest ride at Universal Studios Florida. Fans of the saga can experience the world of underground racing as you’re welcomed into the Fast family. Before boarding you’ll get a close-up look at some of the supercharged cars that you’ll be able to instantly recognise from the movie, so be sure to snap plenty of pictures. The action begins when you’re on the way to a post-race after party. Criminal mastermind Owen Shaw is out to get you, but don’t worry- the Fast & Furious gang are never far behind.
