Nowadays, especially if you visit off-season, it’s not hard to pick up cheap Universal Orlando Resort™ tickets. With your Poconos resort hotel booking in Pennsylvania, your tickets paid for, and your backs packed, you’re ready to start your adventure at Universal Orlando Resort™.
Universal Orlando Resort™ is a great way to get behind the scenes and learn about the movie industry in a fun, entertainment-oriented setting. Sometimes, nothing cuts it like a good old-fashioned roller coaster thrill. We’ve picked out some of the top attractions. The list includes traditional roller coasters as well as some of the best motion-base rides, which feel just like you’re hurtling through the air, and make use of some impressive technology.
1. Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts™
This is one of the modern attractions to make use of ride-film-style trickery that originated with the famous Spiderman ride. Harry Potter™ is a perfect match for this technology, as you’ll get to meet and soar through the sky on a broomstick with some of the best-known members of the cast. It’s a more manageable ride, but you’ll certainly feel like you’ve taken a trip through Hogwarts™ and beyond. The production values are so high you’ll forget where you are completely as the motion-base shifts you in every direction to complete the illusion.
2. Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit™
If you like tension, this ride is for you. You’ll gradually ascend a 17-story vertical lift hill before plunging down a steep drop at 65 mph. It’s an extremely thrilling ride that turns you over and twists through Universal Studios’ New York backlot. It’s a great way to see a piece of the park—if only for a second—while experiencing a truly exciting roller coaster.
3. The Incredible Hulk Coaster™
Take a trip over to the Islands of Adventure of possibly the most intense and thrilling ride at Universal Orlando Resort™. The Hulk, with his smashing and charging around, is the perfect match to theme this large, inverting, and G-force inducing ride. You’ll spin and invert and get off the ride wanting more as if roller coasters are your thing. This is undeniably not one for the faint-hearted.
4. TRANSFORMERS: The Ride – 3D
Like Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts™, this ride is a blend of motion-based technology and visual IMAX imagery that gives you an immersive movie experience, putting you at the center of the action. The giant transformers seem to tower over you as you’re hurtled through streets and smashing through windows. This ride is full of Hollywood-quality production and an overwhelmingly satisfying feel of movement. It’s such a spectacle, you’ll leave feeling thrilled and thoroughly impressed.
