"Must-Do" Rides at Universal Orlando!

I recently went on vacation to Universal and I had a great time, as always! I stayed at Universal's Royal Pacific Resort, so my party had Express Passes. We were lucky enough to go on almost all of the rides multiple times, and we stayed for four days.
If you are planning to visit Universal, put these rides on your vacation bucket list! Don't miss these attractions!
 ALSO, check out my Etsy shop! I have recently added new merchandise. For example, this Universal Park Map Phone Case www.etsy.com/shop/ThemeParkTeen

Here are the five must-do rides at Universal Orlando:

5. Jurassic Park River Adventure
Jurassic Park is such an iconic movie series so the majority of people are familiar with the story (as opposed to Dudley Do Right, another Universal water ride). If you are not, life-like dinosaurs are still fun. River Adventure is a great way for the family to cool off during a day in the Florida sun, as you can be sure you will be wet. Don't be afraid of the drop at the end; it is over in about 3 seconds!

4. The Incredible Hulk Coaster
If you are a big fan of coasters, or you are feeling daring, take a ride on Hulk. the launch at the beginning is so much fun. After the launch you will corkscrew then drop 110 feet!
Hulk is closing is September for a few months!!! Universal's website

3. Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts
This ride is technologically advanced and is different from most other rides in the park. You will be wearing 3D glasses while riding along in a mine-cart style vehicle. The whole family can experience this ride. This is still fun for any non Potter fans because it is a great experience.

2. Transformers the Ride 3D
You will experience an exciting battle while riding Transformers! You can feel every motion that you see on the screen. Because it is a simulation, some people may feel sick.

1. Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey
This is the best ride in the park. It is an unbelievable experience for Potter fans and non fans alike. You really feel like you are flying. Although there is no Express pass, it is worth the wait. Forbidden Journey's queue takes you on a fun tour of Hogwarts. The ride is also about 5 minutes long, which is more than most other rides.

Don't forget to experience these rides at least once on your visit to Universal Orlando Resort!
