This is a rollercoaster like you’ve never experienced before! Using motion effects and a giant 80-foot 3D domed screen, this indoor ride is entirely simulated, but it will feel just like you’re on a huge rollercoaster! On the ride, you’ll join all the Simpson family for a trip to Krustyland, but there might be a few issues along the way. Make sure you look out for cameos from all your favourite Springfield residents as you go!
Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon

Universal's Islands of Adventure
Skull Island: Reign of Kong
Take a treacherous journey to a mysterious island with some strange and spooky inhabitants. As you ride through the jungle in your expedition bus, you’ll come face to face with some prehistoric creatures and of course, the larger-than-life ape King Kong. As he towers over your vehicle there’ll be only one question on your mind – is he friend or foe?
The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man®
A Marvel-ous attraction you won’t want to miss! When villains steal the Statue of Liberty, it’s time for you to don your 3D glasses as you join Spider-Man to help save the day. Soon you’ll be swinging through the streets of New York and scaling skyscrapers to defeat the bad guys and get back Lady Liberty.
Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey™
If you’ve ever wished that you could be a student wandering the infamous halls of Hogwarts School, this is the ride for you. After queuing through the castle itself, you’ll soar over the grounds, across the Quidditch pitch and through the Forbidden Forest (meeting a few creatures along the way), before being welcomed back to the Great Hall by Dumbledore.
Top Tip! If any members of your party don’t want to ride or aren’t tall enough, they can still get a taste of the Hogwarts experience by entering a special line in the queue that will take them through the castle without having to ride!
