The 5 Best Thrill Rides at Universal Orlando

Sharing is caring!

Are you a thrill ride lover? I tend to be a bit of a sissy when it comes to some, but my family LOVES all thrill rides so I end up riding and screaming anyway. If you are looking to experience some great thrill rides on your next trip, Universal Orlando Resort is the place to go. You will have plenty of chances to scream at both Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure.
