Having Fun at Universal Orlando... in a Different Way!

Erasing the borders between cinema and reality!

Ohh, how we love Universal. The bazillion of attractions we see there, events, shows, and experiences make it the perfect place to visit with friends and family. However, it's normal for first-timers or even for frequent visitors to miss out on some of the best activities that we can find there... some activities that a lot of people don't even know about!

Fortunately, you have your trusted Famvia companions, committed to ensuring you experience the ultimate adventure in the fantastic realm of Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure.

Entertainment is the key

Yes, we love to uncover the mysteries of Hogwarts and take a closer look behind the scenes of the most iconic movies and series. But that’s not all we do!

Let's not forget our foodie side, eagerly savoring diverse culinary delights the parks have to offer. From the iconic Lard Lad Donuts to the delicious Butterbeers of the Wizarding World, each bite is a journey into the extraordinary... truly magical, which makes sense for a park that hosts Harry Potter.

However, we have to be honest... one of the things that we enjoy the most at Universal is the entertainment. We have selected the perfect trio for this category. No contest was needed, just several visits and the desire to have the best time of our lives.

Let’s check them out.

What can I do at Universal?

Simpsons Games

Ok, let’s hop into our favorite yellowish town first, Springfield. Here you can challenge yourself with fun and dynamic games that will make you feel inside a Simpson’s episode. Maybe Bart and Liza pop up to play a few games with you as well.

You can choose between a dozen options that come straight from Krustyland. Dunk or Flunk, Whac-A-Rat, Mr. Burns’ Radioactive Rings, and so much more are waiting for you for a fun time.

These are classic Carnival games where you throw balls, rings and stuff like that and try to win prizes like small plush bears... and also HUGE plush bears. Just like in a movie, this is a pretty cool activity, and can also be very romantic *wink* *wink*.

Knight Bus

Are your wizarding skills as sharp as ever? Then it's time for an interactive experience at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, specifically at Diagon Alley.

One thing that fans love the most about this special bus is that it was one of the two prop transportations used in the real movie, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (one of our favorite ones), how cool is that?

Guests get to get a closer look at the many beds, windows, curtains, ornaments, and even a magical head that now and then pops up to make small talk with the conductor. You know, normal stuff in The Wizarding World. A head that just pops up to say hi, no big deal...

...let me grab my cross and some holy water.

Nah, just kidding, this is an awesome attraction and the head is pretty cool, I'd certainly drink a few beers with it.

Palace Theater Arcade

Let's journey back to one of the most enjoyable and memorable eras, where Pinball, Air Hockey, Claw Machines, and Racing Simulators reigned supreme. These timeless classics continue to bring joy to many even today. Everyone loves a good Arcade, after all. Last time I was here, they even had Guitar Hero, which was great! Unfortunately, time comes for us all and I can't even play simple songs on hard mode anymore. Sigh.

Arcades offer timeless fun, allowing us to hop from game to game in a unique atmosphere. What better place to enjoy this experience than during a trip to Universal? The Nostalgia hits hard too. So many good memories from arcades, playing Time Crisis, Virtua Fighter, Metal Slug... okay, I'll stop here.

It's fun o’clock
