The best Universal Studios attractions (if you don’t love rollercoasters)

Universal Studios Attractions

Not a huge lover of big scary rollercoasters? I’ll let you into a little secret – neither am I! But don’t let that put you off, because there are loads of other fun and exciting things to do at Universal Studios which don’t involve 60mph loop-the-loops and sheer 90° drops!

Animal Actors On Location!

This is a lively and hilarious mix of video segments, live animal performances and audience interaction, showcasing the skills of our furry, feathery and scaly stars!

The adorable animals show off the natural and learned behaviour that’s used in movies and TV shows. It’s more fun than is humanly possible!

Universal Orlando’s Horror Make-Up Show

See how Hollywood’s top make-up and special effects artists create some of the amazing effects you see in the blockbuster movies!

This outrageous live show includes make-up demonstrations, props and creatures in a fascinating and hilarious insight into the movie-making process.

This show has no restrictions but Parental Guidance is suggested.

Blue Man Group

This fabulous family show is like nothing you’ve ever experienced before! With multi-sensory experiences, audience interaction, state-of-the-art technology and LOTS of paint, three blue men create weird, wonderful and completely bizarre scenarios.

Just don’t be late – or the whole audience will know about it!

Diagon Alley

Love shopping? Love eating? Love Harry Potter? Well even if you don’t love Harry Potter, this area is still awesome!

Browse colourful, magical shops like the Weasley’s Wizarding Wheezes joke shop, or dark and cavernous establishments like Ollivanders Wand Shop. Feast on wizarding fare at the Leaky Cauldron, quench your thirst with a nice frothy Butterbeer and grab a sweet treat at Florean Fortescue’s Ice-Cream Parlour. Oh and there are even some rides there too!

The Hogwarts Express

Yes, you can actually take a real train journey on a true-to-life replica of the famous wizarding train! The Hogwarts Express connects the two Wizarding World of Harry Potter parks at Universal Orlando Resort, and the view from the train windows is different depending on which way you’re travelling.

IMPORTANT: To ride the Hogwarts Express you need a ticket that includes admission to both Universal Orlando parks. This is included with all Universal Orlando Tickets booked through FloridaTix.

Shrek 4-D

See, hear, and actually FEEL the action as moving seats, water, wind, mist and other special effects put you right in the middle of this original 3-D film starring the voices of the original cast of the Shrek films!

Fievel’s Playland

Kids can run, jump, climb and bounce through this outdoor playground filled with oversized props from the films “An American Tail” and “Fievel Goes West”.

Little ones will love climbing a 30ft spider web, crawling through tin cans, crossing swaying bridges, exploring a giant cowboy boot, and shooting down 200ft long waterslide!
