Universal Orlando has become known for its thrills and emphasis on new technology in its rides, and though there are plenty of low-thrill rides, knowing how to gauge the intensity of the ones currently in the park can be critical for getting a first-timer on their new favorite attractions.
The Biggest Thrills
Some coasters at Universal Orlando Resort offer a significant thrill level that are there to satisfy the adrenaline junkies. These attractions are some of the most advanced in the Orlando area, and consequently, are some of the most fun. These attraction feel as if they are built are the idea of the thrills themselves. The biggest thrills in Universal belong to:
Jurassic World Velocicoaster
The Incredible Hulk Coaster
Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit
Doctor Doom's Fearfall
The Middle Tier
Though potentially intimidating from the outside-in, Universal has a series of thrill rides that are on par with the bigger thrills at other local parks, which means they are typically suitable for those who want to try something a bit more ambitious while avoiding the rides that are truly intense. Those include:
Revenge of the Mummy
Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts
The Lighter Thrills
Some attractions contain thrill elements, but should generally be pretty friendly to most guests outside of a few bigger moments. These don't go upside down or have monstrous climbs and drops. They can be technologically advanced or feature motion simulator elements, so those concerned about motion sickness may want to do some research on the individual attractions to address those specific concerns. They include:
Hagrids Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure
Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey
No matter the desired intensity level, Universal Orlando Resort boasts options for each guest, and has enough of them to make a complete vacation for everyone.
