Universal Orlando Resort consists of 3 action-packed theme parks: Universal Studios, Universal’s Islands of Adventure, and Universal’s Volcano Bay Water Theme Park. With a 4th park on its way, set to be called Universal’s Epic Universe! If you’re looking for an exciting, fun-filled vacation then Universal Orlando is my top pick! So here are the 5 best thrill rides!🎢🙌🏼

The Incredible Hulk Coaster will never get old! It’s been the top rollercoaster at Universal’s Islands of Adventure since it was put in when the park first opened in 1999. Before you can blink, you’re off at high-speed twisting and turning through loops upside down! Definitely my go-to ride at IOA!

Minimum Height to Ride: 48″

Join Hagrid on his motorbike and sidecar for a thrilling journey through the forbidden forest! Hagrid’s Motorbike Adventure is the new epic addition to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, and is the first ever “story coaster”. Twisting and turning at high-speeds with the wind blowing in your face, the sound of a muffling motor, and Hagrid’s voice guiding you the whole way. And just when you think you’ve made it to the end, there’s a 17-foot vertical drop!😱 Definitely my new favorite ride!⚡️🏍🙌🏼

Take a thrilling ride through the Hogwart’s Castle with Harry and his crew! This one is a 3D/4D motion simulator ride. Meaning you’re shown a movie while your seats move to correspond to the action on the screen, instead of riding an actual rollercoaster. These types of rides normally aren’t my favorite but this one is actually really thrilling and fun! You’ll visit iconic locations from the books like Dumbledore’s Office and the Gryffindor Common Room!

Prepare to get wet on this scenic water ride through Jurassic Park! It starts out as a slow cruise when out of nowhere you’re thrown off course into the “restricted area” coming face-to-face with dangerous creatures like a T. Rex! And there’s only one way out… a thrilling plunge down a pitch black 85-foot drop!🦖🌿😱

Location: Universal’s Volcano Bay Water Theme Park

Are you brave enough to do this jaw-dropping plunge through the volcano? This intense water ride hosts a pair of two high-speed water slides that start with trap doors plunging riders all the way down the volcano until they plummet into the turquoise blue waters below. These twin slides are the tallest drop capsule slides in the world at 125 feet!😱🌋
