Many visitors who have never been to Universal Studios Orlando or Universal’s Islands of Adventure theme parks often wonder what are the best attractions that they should check out? Well here is your answer! Today I will be recommending the best attractions at Universal Studios Orlando in 2020.
Skull Island: Reign of Kong
Reign of Kong is located at Universal’s Islands of Adventure sister park. Islands of Adventure is home to some of the family-friendly and thrill attractions that everyone knows and loves. In fact, the Reign of Kong attraction takes guests on a journey through Skull Island in a self-driving flying vehicle. Many of the digital and physical effects in this attraction help make the experience more family-friendly!
Revenge of the Mummy
From impressive animatronics, multiple special effects, and additionally, an impressive drop into a black abyss. The attraction even features speeds that can reach up to 45 mph. Revenge of the Mummy is a perfect attraction for teens and adults that love the thrill and want to get their adrenaline pumping.
Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey
Harry Potter is a very popular book and film series for many years among all age groups. As a result, Harry Potter became the icon of the Islands of Adventure park when The Wizarding World of Harry Potter opened to the public as an immediate success. To make this attraction possible to Forbidden Journey uses advanced robotics that help simulate the flying, similar to Pandora: Flight of Passage at Disney. Therefore, I would really recommend you check out this great attraction!
Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure
Alternatively, you can also visit Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure. The first thing guests would notice while riding the attraction are the speechless details put into it. The queue to the attraction also holds many interesting details from both the books and films. The ride is action-packed with many twists and turns with speed reaching up to 50 mph. This is definitely an experience you do not want to miss out on!
Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts
In addition to these attractions, you should check out Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts located in the Diagon Ally portion of Universal Studios. This attraction allows guests to have the experience of helping defeat dragons and varieties of magical creatures. Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts is considered a roller coaster but is not a thrill-seeking attraction as some may want, but it is still an enjoyable ride.
