Universal Studios Florida occupies half the current theme park space for Universal Orlando Resort, holding much of the destination's namesake. Universal parks have made a reputation for their rides and roller coasters—as the excellence of those attractions warrant—but they are loaded with tons of other great attractions, too. As outstanding as Universal's variety of experiences is, some rides stand above the others.
Here are our picks for must-dos:
Revenge of the Mummy
What could be better than a high-speed, dark roller coaster with impeccable theming? Not much. Revenge of the Mummy is among Universal's most fun-filled rides, with a stellar queue and a full storyline elevating the experience to something unbeatable.
Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts
Speaking of high-speed, dark and themed coasters, Harry Potter puts a more unique spin on the idea than almost anywhere else. It combines Universal's affinity for next-level simulator screens with its talent for creating on-track thrill ride unlike any other.
Men in Black Alien Attack
Something a bit friendlier to those who want to go in a different direction than thrills, this interactive, moving arcade shooter pits guests on a high-score run against each other—and other ride vehicles. It carries the trend of what Universal does so well by taking a theme park staple and elevating with a level of uniqueness all its own.
