Universal studios in Orlando
My last post from Florida is going to be about the most famous place it is known for - The universal studios amusement park.
Welcome to Universal Orlando.
Florida is famous for its Disneyland's and universal parks. There are literally an amusement park on every single corner of this city. But we've decided to visit the largest on most popular one - Universal studios.
The parking is much larger then most parking in our supermarkets.
The view on the Universal Studios from the parking.
In short - Universal Studios is a small village that includes two huge amusement parks (each one requires its own ticket), parks and awfully a lot of different shops and restaurants.
And of course the Universal spinning globe that you can see on the background.
So far we haven't even entered the amusement park itself. Just walking around it.
In America I'm Mike. Apparently Ingus is too hard for them to spell.
World famous Bubba Gump restaurant.
Main entrance to one of the amusement parks - Islands of Adventure.
After exploring the map..
We went straight for the craziest ride there was.
Yeap - that's the one.
Lets do this :)
There's even a net in case some small stuff like coins, iPhones or wallets fly off.
The queue was almost an hour long. Only later have we discovered a way to pass all the lines.
In universal Studios there are two lines. One for everybody and the other is for single people - basically for those who don't care where to sit and who to sit with. While standard line went for an hour, single line went for like 5 minutes or so. And of course non of us actually didn't really care where to sit, we just waited for each other at the end of the ride.
Great place for the kids I would say.
Most of the attractions like this Spider man weren't actually real. They were something like a 4D movies. Personally I didn't like it that much.
True story :)
I think in the movie Captain America looked a little different no?
One of our personal best rides. Just what you need on a hot day.
Hell yeah :)
Completely all wet.
Happy kids :)
In case you want to get dry pretty quick :) But in our case it wasn't necessary. The temperature outside was close to 38C.
And here is another ride - a little bit larger.
We're at the back . It seems like everybody loved it :)
Of course there's always a chance to win something. And I definitely wouldn't miss this opportunity.
Great success :)
And here comes my prize that I'll be taking home. Still sitting here with me.
I'm not the fan of the Harry Potter movies. In fact I actually haven't watched it yet, but for the fans I guess this could be a dream land.
Hard to believe that they've built this huge castle just for one ride and decorations. It's gorgeous.
Just look at all the details. Stunning.
It's about to get dark so lets head for the city walk - which is a main street with all the shops and restaurants.
Here it is. Music and people everywhere.
The same plane we've seen when we entered.
Such a warm chilly evening. Especially after a whole day in the Amusement park.
And here is the world famous Universal globe.
Of course you must take a photo with it :)
Here is a small video of it.
How about a small basketball game?
Didn't go that well if I'm honest :)
Non Stop nightlife :)
I guess it's time to leave. One last glance at the Universal Studios from the parking lot.comments powered by Disqus
