Our favorite family-friendly Universal Orlando Resort rides



Universal Orlando Resort is lauded for its thrills, and for good reason, as they contain some of our favorite coasters anywhere. Yet, for every excellent thrill ride, there's an experience we love just as much that is perfect for people of all thrill affinities.


The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man

One of the greatest rides in Orlando, this attraction blends Universal's affinity for screen-based simulators with jaw-dropping live sets that make it feel like guests are being transported into the Spider-Man comics. A fun romp with enough excitement to give thrill seekers something to be excited about, nothing is so intense (there are no drops, loops or any similar, coaster-like mechanics) as to be off-putting for those less tuned to intense rides.


The High in the Sky Seuss Trolley Train Ride

This trolley ride rolling over Seuss Landing gives an overhead view of the land from above. It makes for a great relaxation scene, as it is slow-moving, and it is outstanding for keeping younger guests entertained. With two tracks, different ride-throughs can give multiple experiences, adding to both its uniqueness and its repeatability.


Despicable Me Minion Mayhem

This big-room simulator is filled with a love for those yellow, goofy, candy-shaped minions, and is tame enough to be appropriate for younger guests. There is plenty of fun and humor to be had for everyone else, too. Do note, the ride's proximity to the park's entrance means wait times can be especially high during the day, so we prefer getting to the park early or circling back later in the day when wanting to ride.
