Here are the remaining pictures from our trip to Universal Studios Florida. I’ve already shared the pictures from Diagon Alley, so here is a peek into the other parts of that park. Be warned, there are a lot of pictures in this post!
The Simpsons-themed section of the park has a fun 3-D ride, carnival games, and lots of food options.
We rode the Men in Black ride several times, as it usually did not have a long line. You get to shoot aliens. One time, we got stuck on the ride and had to get off and walk back to the front. It was like a backstage peek at the ride.
Most of the kiddie section of the park was closed due to Covid, as it consists mainly of themed playgrounds. We rode the Woody Woodpecker kiddie coaster over and over again.
We did take pictures with Barney, Baby Bop, and BJ!
The Minions ride is another 3-D ride. It is very popular, so we only rode it once.
There is normally a Christmas parade. Due to Covid, it was cancelled for 2020. In place of the parade, however, there was a walk-through Christmas exhibit with real Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade balloons. It was festive and cool to see the balloons up close.
At the end of the exhibit, you could see Santa (socially distanced, of course).
Another fun 3-D ride is the Race Through New York featuring Jimmy Fallon. It was fun to watch all the clips from The Tonight Show as we waited in line.
We even saw Hashtag the Panda.
The Horror Makeup Show was really fun. It is full of jokes and gags. It is also informative as you learn about how they do many of the special effects in horror movies.
We also loved the Animal Actors on Location show. We saw how they train animals to be in movies.
There was a Shrek 4-D show. It was okay, but not quite worth the long wait in line. We did take a picture with Shrek, Fiona, and Donkey, though.
We also rode E.T., of course.
Also, Transformers. My daughter wouldn’t go on that one, so we had to child swap.
In addition to rides, we met lots of different characters in this park. Of course, they are all socially distanced pictures. We saw the trolls twice. The first time, we saw Poppy and Branch. The second time, we saw Poppy and Guy Diamond. He even had a Tiny Diamond with him.
Spongebob and Patrick.
Back to the Future.
Scooby Doo and the Gang.
Madagascar characters were on parked floats since the parades were cancelled.
An Egyptian walking down the street near the Revenge of the Mummy ride (one that I did not go on!).
There are lots of cute, themed stores, such as Hello Kitty.
The whole park is of course Hollywood and movie themed, so there were other cute touches, like seeing Marilyn Monroe get driven down the street.
Of course, it is always fun to take the Jaws themed pictures.
We had a great two days in Universal Studios Florida park. There is a lot to do to fill your time.
