Universal Orlando - Stefan and Sebastien

Whether you’re a Harry Potter fan, Simpsons geek, or you love good old fashioned wild rollercoaster rides, Universal Studios in Orlando will completely rock your world.

This was one of our highlights from our trip in Florida, especially the life size recreation of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and all those Marvel fantasies brought to life. Universal is simply overwhelming, exciting and completely magical!

This is our 5 favourite rides at Universal Studios in Orlando, which we loved so much, we went on each of them at least 2/3 times.

Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey

Harry Potter fans will be blown away the moment they step into Diagon Alley at Universal Studios for their first time. The immense detail that has gone into recreating everything is simply astonishing, from the Butterbear stands, the dragon atop Gringotts Wizarding Bank and the many different wizarding shops where you can buy souvenirs, wands and more.

On the other side of the Wizarding World, which is located at Universal’s Islands of Adventure, you can visit Hogwarts school and take the Forbidden Journey. This is a motion-based dark ride through Hogwarts and its impressive grounds with Harry and Ron leading the way. It’s so lifelike that you really feel like you’re flying on a broomstick through a Quidditch match. A must for all Harry Potter fans.

Six Exciting New Amusement Park Rides

Author: , February 12th, 2015

Thunderbird-SizedAlong with April showers, May flowers, and non-bone-chilling temperatures, spring brings exciting new attractions to many amusement parks in the U.S. From a dizzying glow-in-the-dark funhouse roller coaster, to a beyond-vertical Batman, here are six new rides we’re looking forward to in 2015.

Best Steel-on-Wood Hybrid: Twisted Colossus at Six Flags Magic Mountain (California): The iconic Colossus, a behemoth wooden roller coaster, takes on a new steel track when it reopens as Twisted Colossus. Patrons will recognize the ride’s classic, white wood structure, but don’t expect the old same up-and-down circuit. Two trains will race each other on dueling tracks that twist around one another through multiple flips.

Most Dizzying: Laff Trakk at Hershey Park (Pennsylvania): A throwback to the park’s funhouses of yesteryear, Hershey Park will debut the first “indoor, spinning, glow-coaster” in the United States. Laff Trakk’s four-person cars spin horizontally along a curvy track, whizzing by neon characters and a hall of mirrors, set to the soundtrack of a cackling clown. Good luck stomaching this one.
