Vacation like you mean it.

If you want to go behind the scenes of your favorite movies, and get right into the heart of the action, a stop at Universal Studios is a must-do on your next Florida vacation.

It has everything you could possibly want in a family outing- rides, shows, movie sets,  food, and numerous unique attractions.

Rides & Play Areas

Rides at Universal Studios Orlando span the ages- literally. The youngest ride lovers can take a turn on E.T. Adventure or Men In Black Alien Attack. Are your little ones not the ride loving type? Then take them over to spend some time playing on Fievel's Playland,where they can discover a giant cowboy hat, enormous spiderweb, giant cowboy boots, and much more! You wouldn't want to miss the chance to ride the hilarious Despicable Me Minion Mayhem ride either.

There is more than enough roller coaster's for the older thrill seekers as well.  The Revenge of the Mummy or Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit are great ways to get the blood pumping and adrenaline rushing. Of course, if you're really a thrill seeker, you won't want to miss the chance to see what it would feel like to be caught inside of a full blown tornado. If that sounds like a good time to you, make sure you take a turn on Twister...Ride It Out.


If you need a little break from running around the park and catching your thrills on the roller coasters, there are plenty of unique shows you could attend- suitable for the whole family! Families with young children will love A Day In The Park With Barney or Animal Actors On Location.

If you've ever wondered how they're able to make those movie monsters so scary, you won't want to miss the Horror Makeup Show. Learn what goes into and oozes out of the scariest monsters in Hollywood! Need something a bit more relaxing? Spend some time chilling at the Blues Brothers Show.
