Choosing a vacation destination can be incredibly stressful. Everything’s expensive, members of the family have different interests, and you know that regardless of where you travel, somebody is going to be unhappy. That is, unless that place happens to be Universal Studios. This insanely fun theme park is overflowing with charm and activities for the whole family, no matter their age or interests. Here are three reasons you should take a family vacation to Universal Studios.
Crazy Fun Rides
As you would expect, the rides at Universal are crazy fun. Not only does the park have all the classic rides that you would see at most other amusement parks like roller coasters and height drops, but they shine in their interactive 3D rides. These attractions use both a combination of motion and low-intensity on-rails tracks with 3D technology to fully transport riders to whatever they can dream up. Some of the best rides in the park that use this include The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man, The Simpsons Ride, and the Transformers Ride.
But that doesn’t mean their classic rides should be overlooked, as rides like Revenge of the Mummy, The Incredible Hulk Coaster, Harry Potter and the Escape From Gringotts, and Jurassic Park River Adventure are some of the best in the whole park!
One thing that is quickly noticeable at Universal is just how detailed the environments are. Go to Jurassic Park and you’ll come across lots of little details, like footprints in the sidewalk and T-Rex heads popping out of the shrubbery. Over in the Wizarding World, you’ll find iconic shops and sights pulled straight out of the films, like Olivander’s Wand Emporium, Zonko’s Joke Shop, and Diagon Alley.
You’re also sure to see passing parades, iconic characters like Spongebob and the minions, and hidden secrets sprinkled throughout the park. It’s not any one of these details that make Universal magical, but when they all come together they create an immersive environment that makes the entire experience feel real.
Afraid to stop for a bit to eat during your day full of merriment and fun? Don’t be! Eating at one of Universal’s many themed restaurants is an experience in and of itself. You could stop by The Simpsons’ Fast Food Blvd, where you’ll be able to clog your arteries with a Krusty Burger, or perhaps as a Harry Potter fan you’d rather dine at The Leaky Cauldron? If you have a hankering for something sweet, swing on over to The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium and Savory Feast Kitchen. They have what seems like an endless menu of different shake options, along with plenty of other treats and delicious meals to go with it!
An Unforgettable Experience
Universal Studios is the only place on Earth where you could be riding along on a broom with Harry Potter one minute and eating a Krusty Burger with Homer Simpson the next. If you’ve never been before, there’s no time like the present. Get your car tuned up at a shop like Precision Restorations, load up the family, and hit the road! Universal awaits!
