Visiting anytime soon? Here are ten rides you wouldn’t want to miss:

Revenge of the Mummy
If the film didn’t scare you, maybe, this ride will. Past the impressive animatronics and hair-raising special effects that make up the first act of this attraction, you will be dropped into complete darkness aboard a coaster. Scream if you must.
Transformers: The Ride-3D
Alongside Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, save planet Earth from Megatron and the Decepticons! This action-packed 3D ride will sweep you to a smashing and explosive battle of good and evil.
Men in Black: Alien Attack
As an agent trainee, you are left to the task of protecting New York from an alien invasion. Be alert and keep your eyes peeled, as you blast the otherworldly creatures before they zap back at you and propel your car to a dizzying spin!
Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit
Looking for more thrills? Try the Rip Ride Rockit. This high-altitude coaster will send you up to the height of 17 stories through a 90-degree-angle ascent and drop you with the heart-stopping speed of 65mph. And oh, before all the action, they’ll let you pick a song you wish to listen to during your ride. Make sure to select a good one because you’ll want to hear it on top of your ear-splitting screams!
Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon
An attraction featuring a talk show? WHAT? Well, yes, of course! This is Universal Studios, anyway! Buckle up as this 4D motion simulator ride challenges you to race against “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon through New York City. Feel the fund and excitement as you speed past iconic landmarks and locations in the city such as Times Square, the Statue of Liberty, and the East River.
Doctor Doom’s Fearfall
If you’re acrophobic might want to skip this ride. But if you want to face your biggest fear, then prepare to take the plunge on Doctor Doom’s Fearfall! You’ll be shuttled up 185 feet into the sky and hurled down with an unimaginable force.
Jurassic Park River Adventure
Board a raft at Jurassic Park, and enjoy a scenic cruise down a lazy river. Your ride then makes a wrong turn towards the park’s restricted area where the ferocious T.rex is kept. Now, there’s seemingly no other escape but taking an 85-foot drop that will give you a splashing good time!
The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man
Swing and soar above streets and climb towering buildings with your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man on this 3D motion simulation ride. The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man debuted in 1999 and has since been revamped with high-definition graphics and 4D elements, making it even more spectacular.

Step into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and join Harry Potter and his friends as you soar above the castle grounds in this hyper-realistic adventure of a ride that’s been called a favorite by the film’s cast members themselves!
