Universal's Islands of Adventure Theme Park - Orlando
two major Theme Parks in Orlando, there are two choices here for
visitors. The more mild 'Ride the Movies' theme of
Universal Studios Florida, or
the more wild 'Thrill Rides' of Universal's
Islands of Adventure located
adjacent to Universal Studios Florida...
Here, we'll focus on Universal's newer Theme Park - Universal
Studios Islands of Adventure.
Themed after your favourite Super Heroes and Cartoon
Characters, Universal's Islands of Adventure is a favourite among the
young and the young at heart. There's the 'Amazing Adventures of
Spider-Man' Ride (Experienced in 3-D via a moving vehicle with
awesome special effects!), Dudley Do-Right's Ripsaw Falls, Jurassic
Park River Adventure and Popeye and Bluto's Bilge-Rat Barges.
For the younger members of your party, there's also 'The
Cat in the Hat' Section that offers 'The Cat in the Hat'
Ride, the 'Caro-Suess-el' a Merry-go-round themed after
Dr. Suess Characters, and of course, the 'One Fish, Two
Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish' ride! - a great ride for any
For a 'Spectacular Show' and 'Special Effects, don't
miss 'Poseidon's Fury' or the 'Amazing Adventures of
Spiderman Ride!' For the more adventuresome, there's
also the 'Doctor Doom's Fearfall' where you're
'rocketed' high into into the air at 13 G's, and just as
fast on the downward journey! (Great view, but
terrifying). And don't forget about 'The incredible
Hulk-Coaster' and the 'Duelling Dragons Roller Coaster
(Definitely, not for the 'faint hearted').
A special note here, because of the number and nature of
the 'thrill rides' available here, not all children
under the height of 54" inches (1.37 Meters) may be able
to ride all the rides available. For your convenience
we've listed all the 'Minimum Height Requirements.' Use
this information wisely as depending on your party's
size, and that of the age group that's travelling with
you, this may or may not be the Park for you. But if it
is...you'll have a 'Great Time!' And so will your Kids!
