Turning a fantasy into reality.
It's never been easier to interact with all of your favorite films and characters in real life! Some of the most iconic movies of the past live on at Universal Theme Parks, allowing fans to re-experience the magic they felt when they were first introduced to flicks like Jurassic Park and E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial.
The best thing about visiting either Universal Studios Hollywood or Universal Orlando Resort is that you won't just be getting a surface look at the various motion pictures around the parks. Nope—instead, you'll become a part of a movie's story through roller coasters, interactive 3D experiences and other rides!
Take Men in Black: Alien Attack for example. As part of this ride, you'll face off against a group of your fellow riders as you're launched into the middle of New York City, which is under siege by aliens.
And there's no forgetting all of the Harry Potter magic present at both U.S. theme parks.
Orlando's Wizarding World of Harry Potter has two lands, Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade, while Hollywood has Hogsmeade and the larger-than-life Hogwarts castle.
Things are getting even more exciting this week with the opening of Universal Orlando's new ride the Jurassic World VelociCoaster on Thursday, June 10. Park goers can soon feel the rush of the hunt as you race alongside the raptor paddock and other predators, twisting and soaring through the jungle high above land and water.
Check out the below list of movie-inspired rides at Universal Theme Parks below in honor of Universal Orlando's wildly thrilling new ride!
