Head to Universal Orlando Resort for an Unforgettable Adventure

  • June 20, 2022

It's the only place in Orlando where you can fly over Hogwarts with Harry Potter, swing through city streets with Spider-Man, and climb the mighty Krakatau volcano, among other unforgettable adventures. Come to Universal Orlando Resort and play, scream, and laugh with some of the most famous movie, television, and pop culture characters! 

The Introduction of The Three Theme Parks

Universal Orlando consists of 3 separate parks. Universal Studios is the most classic, featuring Harry Potter's Diagon Alley. Islands of Adventure is relatively exciting and features Harry Potter's Hogsmeade. The Harry Potter theme train connects the two parks. Volcano Bay features Krakatau Aqua Coaster Ohya and Ohno Drop Slides.

It's an excellent choice to check the daily opening hours and ticket prices, download the mobile app to view and reserve queue times, etc.

Q: Which kind of tickets to purchase?

Universal's two main parks are both fun. You can only ride the Harry Potter-themed train between the parks if you buy a one-day or multi-day double park ticket.

It's better to purchase a 2-Park 1-Day Ticket if you have one day. If you have two days, a 2-Park 2-Day Ticket is better. 

Of course, purchasing a 2-Park Universal Express Pass can improve the efficiency of your tour. Express Pass is separate from the regular entrance and significantly reduces queuing time.

In addition, one free mode is to use Single Rider Lines for single-entry, which is sometimes faster than Express Pass! But it's not available for every program or open all day! Take your chances!

Q: What are the fun items?

There are many critically acclaimed projects in Universal Studios.

Despicable Me Minion Mayhem is the little yellow man-themed indoor virtual roller coaster.

Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit is the park's most frightening outdoor roller coaster, commonly known as the "red roller coaster." You can feel the swoop close to 90 degrees ~

TRANSFORMERS: The Ride-3D, Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon, and The Simpsons Ride are indoor virtual roller coasters. 

Take Hogwarts™ Express only when you have a double park ticket. It runs between Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. The windows of the train are screens showing movie-related videos. It's only available at Universal Orlando worldwide and worth experiencing. Because the Islands of Adventure park closes later, so everyone is piled up in the evening to take the train, the queue time is slightly longer.

Revenge of the Mummy and Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts are indoor roller coasters.

The Bourne Stuntacular is a "Spy" themed theater show. The effect is perfect!

Fast & Furious Sounds good, but it's a bus ride in naked 3D with a lengthy plot, only for movie fans! E.T & Man In Black is suitable for children.

In Islands of Adventure,  you also can take Hogwarts™ Express when you have a double park ticket. This train is from Islands of Adventure to Universal Studios Park. The windows of the train are screens showing videos of the English countryside.

Other popular projects include The Incredible Hulk Coaster, Skull Island: Reign of Kong, The Jurassic World VelociCoaster, Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, etc.

All support Express Pass except for Hagrid Motorcycles.

About hotel

It is more convenient to stay at a hotel within the park. The hotel offers a free shuttle bus, and you can enter the park up to 1 hour earlier, but not every day, see here for available dates.

If you wish to save on accommodation costs, you can stay at a hotel outside Universal Studios. Here are some 3-star hotels that all offer free shuttles and breakfast, free parking, free WIFI, and high ratings.
