Top Attractions At The Universal Studios Orlando

Here you can live the adventure of Harry Potter. You will be taken on a ride through the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, explore the castle, ride into the mystical world of magic, and lots more. Another interesting thing about Harry Potter rides is that you can even take part in Triwizard Tournaments, and if you are courageous enough, you can emerge a champion. Guess how long we had to wait in line to get on that rides. Two and a half hours!

This is not just a kid zone, even adults will love it here. But if you went to the theme park with your kids, this is the ideal location for them to have fun with Barney.
3. Shrek 4-D
This is yet another attraction at the Orlando theme park. Even if you are not a big fan of Shrek, this amazing 4D display will make you fall in love with Shrek. All the effects were nicely done and the fun was a memorable one, just like the one at Universal Studios Hollywood.
