Orlando is the theme park capital of the world. Families travel there year after year for some of the most exciting attractions and the most nostalgic fun in the world. This four-day itinerary has a Universal theme.
Universal Studios is an entertainment powerhouse that has several offerings for Orlando fun. It’s known for some of the most innovative rides in theme park history, usually modeled after favorite comic book heroes and film legends. The package includes:
Three Nights Lodging at Orlando-area Hotel and unlimited passes to the following Orlando attractions.
Universal Studios – Learn about the magic of movie-making, or rather, the hard work, innovation, and engineering power that makes it possible. Do it all with behind-the-scenes tours, rides, and thrills. Revenge of the Mummy is a popular ride here, and the Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit coaster.
Islands of Adventure – The thrills at Islands of Adventure never end. These coasters are world-class favorites. The Incredible Hulk, Spider Man, and the dinosaurs of Jurassic Park all make appearances in these sky-high, whirling, twirling coasters straight from comic books and film to your list of the best coasters ever. The newest thrill here is the The Wizarding World of Harry Potter with an entire section of the park devoted to towering Hogwarts, the shops of Hogs Meade, and all the best from Harry Potter. You’ll find thrill rides here as well, including the Flight of the Hippogriff and the Dragon Challenge.
Wet-n-Wild Water Park – If any city necessitates various versions of how to stay wet and cool, Orlando is it. Universal’s answer is this water park with rides like Bomb Bay (you’re the bomb, and you’re headed to the bay) and The Storm in which you’re shot to something like a giant, bottomless bowl, which you’ll swirl around before dropping through its bottomless center. A speed slide called the Brain Wash will keep you coming back for more as well as the enclosed Disco H2O. Of course, slow-moving rivers and family-sized attractions, as well as those for younger visitors, are also part of the fun.
Sea World – This beautiful oasis is part tropical garden, part live show, and part thrilling adventure. Pet stingrays, visit the sharks, and watch Shamu soak those brave enough to sit in the first few rows. You’ll also find many other favorite animal shows here. And don’t discount Sea World for thrills. This park has one of the tallest, longest, fastest coasters in Orlando. You know how these things go: No one ever holds the records for long. Still, the Kracken is very near the top for Orlando’s best. Other coasters and attractions thrill in Sea World as well, and it’s an exciting addition to any Orlando tour.
