Universal Studios-Island Of Adventure, Orlando

Harry Potter, Jurassic Park, Spider Man- been there, done that!

Universal Studios, to be specific, Island of Adventure could have been the place where all these movies happened and I wouldn’t know it.

We started with the one highest in demand-HP theme Park

Hogwarts

Some of the rides we went for here was the forbidden journey, which took us into corridors of hogwarts, flight of the hippogriff, a roller coaster which resembled a hippogriff. and the dragon challenge, which is the scariest ride i’ve been on up till now.

After then came Jurassic Park.

The BIG BLACK gates!
The infamous jeep

At Camp Jurassic-A place to explore mines, caves and dinosaur nets.

My brother fools around in the caves of camp jurassic

The nets/play area of camp jurassic

I fool around a bit too!
..A lot actually!

This was the point of time when mom and dad took time off while we jumped around. That happens a lot these days! We end up going uselessly back and forth the place and ultimately come back to find them at the same place!

Apart from that we went for the Jurassic Park River Adventure, which was a water ride (it didn’t get us all that wet) . Dad wanted to go to these things called Pteranodon Flyers. But turned that the ride was for small kids, and you could only go if you were going for the purpose of accompanying a kid. Dad wanted to go so badly, that he tried convincing the guards that I was a kid! Well that didn’t turn out to well. So Camp Jurassic and River Adventure were the only rides we ended up going for!

Next we went to Marvel Super Hero Land. Here we went for the Spider Man Ride. It was a 3D virtual reality! We ended up waiting in the queue for really long. There was some technical error and for about 15 minutes they stopped running the ride!
Well luckily they had some interesting things on the walls of one of the rooms in which we stood in the queue. They were things from the daily bugle (the newspaper in which Peter Parker worked in as a photographer). Here are some of them!

Achievements of the daily bugle

Frustrated Boss, no?

and pretty determined too, don’t you think?

Now that is just normal for a boss!

We didn’t end up going for The Incredible Hulk roller Coaster and the the Doctor Doom’s Fearfall, which seemed pretty exciting by the look of it! But we didn’t end up going ‘cuz we were kinda tired of roller coasters by then!

We went to Toon Lagoon next. They had all these comic strips everywhere in the streets and cartoon cafes and everything!

That’s a verryy interesting sandwich blondie has there!

My dad and brother get a picture with a statue of popeye
And I get a picture with the real Popeye and Olive!

We go on a water ride-Dudley Do-Right’s Ripsaw Falls and get WET

Since we’re wet anyway (and want a place to sit) we take another water ride-Popeye and Bluto’s Bilge-Rat Barges. They’re like tea cups revolving at the speed of the earth! No harm!

Maybe we should have reconsidered-this time we get SOAKED!

Our clothes are way to soaked to dry off in the sun. We try out the family dryer. Amazingly effective. (Although it didn’t dry my shoes. I ended up walking barefoot-which was kinda fun!)



Although we visited 4 out of 6 islands (we could not see The Lost Continent and Seuss Landing), it felt like we’d seen so much!

Will keep my eyes shut for the next Universal Park two days later.
