Inside the Movies at Universal Studios Florida
Since 1990, Universal Studios Florida has brought the cinematic universe to life, by working with filmmakers and movie stars to create rides and attractions based on hit films. Follow in Harry Potter’s footsteps through London into the enchanting Diagon Alley™, where you'll find some of the wizarding world's most famous haunts. Dine at the Leaky Cauldron™, see a wand choose a wizard at Ollivanders™, and travel the depths below Gringotts™ bank on a mind-blowing thrill ride. Join Illumination’s mischievous Minions on the action-packed Despicable Me Minion Mayhem ride. Or, amp up the scare factor with a spin on the Revenge of the Mummy coaster that puts you in the heart-pounding action from the movie “The Mummy.”

Super Heroes and Legends at Universal’s Islands of Adventure
Mythical creatures, superheroes and legends once known only in movies and books become real at Universal’s Islands of Adventure theme park. At The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ – Hogsmeade™, explore the quaint, snow-laden wizarding village before wandering the halls of Hogwarts™ castle. Take off with Harry Potter™ and his friends to soar above the castle on Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey™, or get behind the handlebars of Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure™ on a rollercoaster ride through the Forbidden Forest to encounter amazing creatures from the wizarding world. Next, hide from enormous dinosaurs (and get a little wet) on the Jurassic Park River Adventure, which features a 26-meter plunge. Another favorite ride is The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man®, a rollicking 3-D trip through New York City, where you’ll get to see Spider-Man take on some of Marvel’s most famous villains.

Splash, Relax and Thrill at Volcano Bay
Gather around Krakatau, the 61-meter volcano that’s at the heart of Universal’s Volcano Bay water theme park. The volcano is home to three massive body slides that take riders plunging through it and into the pool below. The Krakatau Aqua Coaster transports brave riders through the volcano as well. Looking for some rest and relaxation? Head to Wave Village, where you’ll find the Waturi Beach wave pool and relaxing pools like The Reef and Puka Uli Lagoon. Bring the family for a lazy float down the Kopiko Wai Winding River or hop on a multi-passenger raft for some large-group thrills on a number of slides.
