Universal Studios isn’t just the place to see the back lots to the movies, it has some great rides for thrill-seekers too. When you’re booking your Orlando luxury villa be sure to grab one of our attraction ticket deals that includes Universal Studios as well.
Universal Studios may not be as big as DisneyWorld but it has some unique attractions nevertheless. Here’s our guide to some of them.
Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit®
It’s all-out adrenalin rush on the tallest roller coaster in Orlando. As soon as you’re strapped in, you’re heading for the stars as it zooms straight up so that you are towering 17 stories over the Studios. On the way you’ll have some near misses, you’ll loop the loop but nothing like on other rides – this one doesn’t invert you. You’ll reach 65 m.p.h. on this 1.200 metre long shrill-thrill ride.
Did I say it’s all in time to the music of your choice? Yes you get to select your own music when you get in and you’re whole trip is recorded on video that you can produce as a music video. Of course you can buy a copy or send them home to your friends.
- You must be 51 – 79” tall
The Incredible Hulk®
You thought rocking it on the Rockit was fast, but everything will be a blur on the Incredible Hulk as speeds reach a max of 67 m.p.h. Even the start doesn’t give you time you catch your breath as you go from 0 – 40 m.p.h. in 2 seconds just like your a jet taking off an aircraft carrier. Turning and twisting upside down like you’re weightless and then a powerful rush sends you speeding off – sound effects included. Hang on it’s going to be a bumpy ride as the Hulk rages and smashes through the sky before dropping down towards
earth on a ‘rampage of destruction’.
- The ride only lasts just over 2 minutes whilst you are tossed upside down 7 times
- Must be at least 54” tall
Revenge of the Mummy®
Something’s woken the long-sleeping Mummy and he wants his revenge. You’ll know he’s not happy as you drop into darkness surrounded by huge fireballs, plagues of scarab beetles and a whole gaggle of warrior mummies.
You’ll feel just like you’re in the movie as you twist and turn in the darkness and see the Mummy heading your way to steal your soul for all of time. What do all those Egyptian hieroglyphics on the walls mean? And how will you escape?
- This ride travels at speeds up to 45 m.p.h.
- You must be 48” tall
