Island of Adventure in Orlando, Florida is the perfect destination for thrill-seekers and adventure enthusiasts. This theme park is home to some of the most exciting and heart-pumping rides in the world, making it a must-visit for anyone who loves to feel the rush of adrenaline.
One of the most popular attractions is the Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, where guests can soar through the skies on broomsticks, encounter mythical creatures and experience the magic of Hogwarts. The ride takes visitors on an exciting journey through the wizarding world, and is perfect for fans of the Harry Potter books and movies. Make sure to get a butter beer. Think cream soda but so much better!
Also a must ride is Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure it is a multiple-launch steel motorbike roller coaster located at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade section. You get to experience the thrill of the Forbidden Forest. The ride is on your trusty motorbike and you go up to 50 mph speeds with twists and turns. This ride always has a long wait so be prepared to stand in line for at least 45 minutes but it is worth it! I also recommend riding it at night if you can. So fun!
Another highlight of the park is the Incredible Hulk Coaster, which features a launch that propels riders from 0 to 40 mph in just two seconds! The coaster takes riders on a high-speed journey through the city, complete with loops, drops, and twists that will have your heart racing. It has always been one of my favorite coasters and it never disappoints.
For those who love water-based adventures, the park's Toon Lagoon section offers several thrilling water rides, including Dudley Do-Right's Ripsaw Falls and Popeye & Bluto's Bilge-Rat Barges. Visitors can also cool off and relax in the lazy river or take a leisurely float through the park on the Me Ship, The Olive.
One of the newest coasters is the Jurassic World VelociCoaster! Holy Moly! If you are a thrill seeker this coaster is a must! It is the park's tallest and fastest roller coaster as well as the fastest launched roller coaster in Florida, and the fastest roller coaster at any Universal Studios park worldwide. The coaster goes 70 mph with an 80 degree angle drop 140 feet drop! Throughout its course, the coaster passes above and below itself a total of 40 times. The first launch sends guests down the track at a speed of 50 Mph, while the second boosts the train back up to high speeds at 70 mph making the second half of the coaster even faster than the first. Just do it! It is so fun!
