Over-the-top fun at Universal Studios Florida
Caught in the rather long shadow cast by Walt Disney World, Universal Studios have always been something of a scrappy younger sibling.
To make comparisons even more pronounced, the similarly themed
Disney-MGM Studios opened at the Mouse House around the same time.
But Universal Studios offers some tremendous attractions and has its own, unique rhythm to compel vacationers through its turnstiles.
Like its sister park, Islands of Adventure, nearly every major attraction features loud, kinetic, frantic action. It is one over-the-top moment after another.
Universal Studios Florida opened in May 1990 as Universal’s first park after the original Universal Studios in Hollywood and it is located in the Universal Orlando Resort, on the southeast side of Orlando, 10 minutes north of Walt Disney World.
