Top Rides for Movie Fans at Universal

Lights, Camera, Action!

Your cinematic adventures don't have to end with the credits; Universal Studios awaits, ready to embrace you with open arms. Encounter beloved characters like Gru and the Minions, or even get up close and personal with the raptors from Jurassic World. 

With countless reasons to experience your favorite franchises in a whole new light, this theme park promises endless excitement for everyone...! Well, as long as you don't pet the raptors too hard, they have the temper of a Chihuahua.

At the pinnacle of fun and thrilling experiences are the rides and shows at Universal Studios. We're eager to share our favorite ride options with you, all of which are inspired by blockbuster movies and beloved franchises! Let's take a closer look before you are ready to go on another Universal adventure.

Fun behind the cameras

How can it be a complete Universal experience without riding the most thrilling (or chill) attractions that you can find around Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure? Especially when they come packed with fun features and creative storylines that get us a step closer to the movies that inspired them. 

It's awesome to get into these new interactive experiences, and we even get the chance to stop by the stores to buy cool stuff based on our favorite movies.

We have handpicked our Top 5 rides that will catapult you in your favorite movie scenes. Explore these thrilling options and perhaps you'll discover your new "go-to ride," uncovering new thrills to experience on your next visit.

Warning: we are going to list only the underrated ones. We all know that Jurassic World VelociCoaster, Hagrid's Motorbike Adventure and The Bourne Stuntacular are amazing, so go experience those, you don't even need to know that Jurassic Park is a movie and that Matt Damon plays Jason Bourne to enjoy them.

Our Top 5 goes to...

Revenge of the Mummy

Hold on tight to your safety rail, because this ride will get you inside a tomb with Imhotep after you. Will you be able to escape him and see the daylight one more time? This is a mix of a dark ride with an indoor roller coaster, and it's awesome. It also gets extra points for featuring Brendan Fraser. 



Optimus Prime and Bumblebee need your help! Are you ready to join them and fight against the evil Megatron? Hop on your vehicle and fight against the bad guys. The Earth needs you! This is a motion simulator very similar to Islands of Adventure's The Amazing Spider-Man, which means that it's at least good based on that already.

Fast & Furious - Supercharged

This one isn't very good. Actually, it's bad enough that it does a 180o and becomes (kinda) good. Speed limits are for the weak here, because virtual Vin Diesel and his FAMILY are back in town. 

Some stuff happens during this ride. What is it, you might ask? I don't really know, I was too dumbstruck looking at Vin Diesel and The Rock yelling non stop. This ride might close for good in October if the rumours are true, so go there and get laugh while it lasts.

Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey

A wizarding adventure is on the horizon. Discover Hogwarts passageways and corridors like never before! Harry Potter and the other beloved characters will be waiting for you. Everyone is here, from Daniel Radcliffe (Redcliffe? Redcliff? I never get it right) to Emma Watson. This is a motion simulator where you sit down on a metallic arm as you get carried around places from the iconic books (and movies).

Jurassic World River Adventure

It seems like another day at Jurassic Park, which means that something needs to go wrong. This is a water ride that starts as a traditional dark ride, where you get to see several animatronics before you come face to face with a giant T-Rex. The main drop isn't thaaat tall, so you won't get soaked (probably). A very fun ride and it's also very good for children that are starting to enjoy thrill rides.
