Top 5 Rides in Universal Studios/Islands of Adventure

This past Holiday I went to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventures with my family. I got the chance to get into the majority of rides (except The Hulk!) and can now provide my top five for any future ride goers: 

1. Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey

Found in Islands of Adventures in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

This is one of the most popular rides in the parks, with a 3 hours wait line. The line was worth it at the end! (The ride is longer than others and really entertaining).

2. Revenge of the Mummy

You can find this ride in Universal Studios. It contains backdrops and fire. That sounds scarier than what it really is.

3.  Jurassic Park: River Adventure

This ride is located on Islands of Adventure and it has a huge drop! You will for sure get wet in this one.

4. The Simpsons Ride:

Also found in Islands of Adventure, this motion-based ride will make you laugh and scream. Bonus: while you wait in the line, episodes of the Simpsons are playing to entertain you.

5. Kong: Island of Skulls

This is a brand new ride in Islands of Adventure. It's a 3D adventure that makes you feel you are inside of a King Kong movie.

I hope that everyone gets a chance to try at least one of these rides in their lifetime. Or, if you already have, let us know which on is your favourite!
