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 in Orlando

Welcome to Universal Orlando.

Driving to Universal studios in 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.

Universal studios parking

The parking is much larger then most parking in our supermarkets.

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.

There's even a net in case some small stuff like coins, iPhones or wallets fly off.

queues in universal studios

The queue was almost an hour long. Only later have we discovered a way to pass all the lines.

Dinosaurs in Universal parks

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.

Crazy Universal Studios X-men

Great place for the kids I would say.

Spider man in universal studios

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.

I haven't had this much fun since I was a kid!

True story :)

Captain America

I think in the movie Captain America looked a little different no?

Splash ride in Universal park

One of our personal best rides. Just what you need on a hot day.

Harry Potter town

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.

Hogwarts village.

Castle from the Harry Potter movie

Hard to believe that they've built this huge castle just for one ride and decorations. It's gorgeous.

It's about to get dark so lets head for the city walk - which is a main street with all the shops and restaurants.
