Fast & Furious

  • Opened: April 23rd, 2018
  • Location: Universal Studios Florida (San Francisco)
  • Style: Dark Ride

Join the crew for an immersive Fast & Furious experience with Fast & Furious – Supercharged. First, step into an amazing re-creation of the crew’s headquarters filled with actual movie props and supercharged vehicles you’ve only seen on the big screen. Next, ride along with Dom, Letty, Hobbs and Roman on a street chase in the middle of the high-octane world of the Fast & Furious blockbuster films.

Marylin Monroe (The Seven Year Itch)

Opened: June 1, 2016
Location: Universal Studios Florida (New York)
Style: Live Show / Music Revue

Marilyn Monroe and the Diamond Bellas perform a four-minute song and dance routine (anachronistically lip-synched to the Moulin Rouge cover of her signature song) in front of the Macy’s facade, followed by a photo op. This is one streetmosphere performance you won’t want to walk on by.

The Incredible Hulk

  • Opened: May 28th, 1999
  • Location: Universal’s Islands of Adventure (Marvel Super Hero Island)
  • Style: Steel – Launched Coaster

Step inside a high-security research compound commanded by General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross. You’ve bravely volunteered to be a test subject for a (potentially life-altering) science experiment based on Dr. Bruce Banner’s research. At the General’s word, your group is blasted with gamma radiation. Suddenly, you feel unstoppable. Before you can blink, you’re catapulted out with the force of a fighter jet. Hulk-like power propels you upside down into a weightless zero-gravity roll, racing faster and faster down the track. Hang on with superhuman strength as The Incredible Hulk Coaster smashes its way through the sky at 67 miles per hour!

Dudley Do-Right

  • Opened: May 28th, 1999
  • Location: Universal’s Islands of Adventure (Toon Lagoon)
  • Style: Flume

Part roller coaster, part water flume, Dudley Do-Right’s Ripsaw Falls ride combines the fun of the classic cartoons with edge-of-your-seat action. As our story unfolds, Snidely Whiplash has once again kidnapped fair Nell Fenwick, and it’s up to the lovably laughable Royal Canadian Mountie, Dudley Do-Right, to rescue her. As your flume log sloshes its way through twists and turns, keep a lookout for funny puns and visual jokes that were a trademark of the animated series. And once you find yourself approaching that final nail-biting 75-foot drop, get ready to whoosh down the track—underneath the water level—for the biggest splash of your life.


  • Opened: June 12th, 2003
  • Location: Universal Studios Florida
  • Style: Motion Simulator Ride Attraction

Shrek 4-D is one Universal Orlando attraction that we super fans call, ogre-the-top! Get it? Anyway… Lord Farquaad has returned (in ghostly form) to Far Far Away. He’s kidnapped Princess Fiona, and Shrek and Donkey are hot on his trail. You’re along for the ride, watching it all unfold from your cozy seat. But this is no ordinary movie. With your OgreVision glasses (and a few special effects), you’ll see, hear and feel what’s happening, pulling you into the story like never before. It’s a fun, funny, multisensory adventure the whole family will love.

This ‘mini movie’ takes place after Shrek 1 and before Shrek 2.


  • Opened: May 28th, 1999
  • Location: Universal’s Island of Adventure (Marvel Super Hero Island)
  • Style: Motion-based 3D Dark Ride

Strap on your 3-D glasses and join the world’s most famous web-slinger in a high-flying virtual reality ride. The villains of the Sinister Syndicate have stolen the Statue of Liberty and it’s up to Spidey to save the day. You’ll face a cast of Marvel characters as you soar above the streets, scale skyscrapers and battle bad guys left and right. The high-definition 3-D graphics are so vivid, that you might catch yourself counting the stitches on Spider-Man’s gloves. Just watch out for the 400-foot freefall. Whether this is your first trip to Universal Orlando or your fiftieth, The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man is an absolute must-do!

Woody Woodpecker

  • Opened: March 13th, 1999
  • Location: Universal Studios Florida (Woody Woodpecker’s Kid Zone)
  • Style: Steel – Junior Coaster

If you’re looking for some ‘fun for the little ones’, Woody Woodpecker’s Nuthouse Coaster has got you covered! After all, who better to ease first-timers onto the track than that wacky woodpecker, Woody? This thrilling kid-friendly coaster gently swoops and turns through Woody’s very own nut factory, filled with silly puns and corny jokes. It’s all the fun of a classic coaster without any daredevil drops. The ups and downs may be small, but the smiles are huge for both kids and parents alike.

Woody Woodpecker’s Nuthouse Coaster was the park’s first roller coaster and the first roller coaster constructed at Universal Orlando Resort. So, even if you don’t have a little one, give riding a piece of theme park history a try!

The Mummy

  • Opened: May 21st, 2004
  • Location: Universal Studios Florida (New York City)
  • Style: Steel – Launched Enclosed Coaster

Ready or not, Revenge of the Mummy plunges you into total darkness! Digging your nails into the safety rail, you’ll hold on tight as you thrash forwards and backwards on the track, fleeing from the evil Mummy Imhotep. He’ll throw everything he’s got at you: swarms of insects, warrior mummies and fire so intense you’ll definitely feel the heat. Just as it seems you might’ve escaped, you’ll plunge straight down into a pitch-black abyss with no end in sight. Will you ever see daylight again? Or will you remain sealed inside this tomb forever? You’ll just have to see for yourself…

SpongeBob SquarePants

  • Location: Universal Studios Florida (Woody Woodpecker's Kid Zone)
