Minion Mayhem and more at Universal Orlando!

Universal Orlando Resort is home to many of our favorite movie characters, and most of them have an attraction based on the film. There will always be a place for ET The Ride on every visit, it’s just a throwback to my childhood and a simple little attraction. However Universal has come a long way since then with attractions!

My Top 3 Movie Based Rides

The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman, Islands of Adventure- this ride takes everything you love about the Spiderman movies and puts it all in one building. Get set to soar with your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man like never before! This groundbreaking attraction has raised the bar.

Transformers The Ride 3-D, Universal Studios- there really are no words to describe how awesome this ride is. You must go an see for yourself. It’s like no simulator I have ever experienced. Prepare for the greatest battle you’ll ever ride!
