Since there are three parks that make up Universal Orlando Resort; Islands of Adventure, Volcano Bay and Universal Studios, it can be a challenge to work out how to plan your day.

To see everything in the resort, it will take you at least a week, but we’re not all blessed with time and need some help narrowing down options when it comes to what rides you want to check out.

In this guide, I’m focusing on the best rides at Universal Studios, so you can decide which to add to your own itinerary.

We had the 3 day park-to-park ticket so we could see all three parks easily and make the most of our visit.

Best Rides at Universal Studios Orlando

Below I’ll share my favorite rides at Universal Studios in Orlando, from my most favorite to my least (though I loved them all!).

Universal Studios is split into different themed lands. Obviously, there is the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios as one land, and then there are others, but like any of that matters! Just kidding.

These are the main lands in Universal Studios:

  • World Expo
  • New York
  • Hollywood
  • Production Central
  • San Francisco
  • Woody Woodpeckers KidZone
  • Springfield: Home of the Simpsons
  • Seuss Landing

Here is what is in each land.

Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts

There’s only one ride in Diagon Alley Universal Studios, and that’s the Harry Potter ride. To be more precise, it’s called Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts.

Come on, we’ve all heard of this ride at some point. It’s famous for the goblins, a roller coaster thrill ride, and a LOT more.

I love the Gringotts ride because you go underground in the Gringotts Bank (a bank for witches and wizards) where you experience the real danger of that bank.

Spoiler alert (without revealing too much) – if you’re not a fan, or are scared of roller coasters or something, don’t do this ride. It spins and turns everywhere, so if motion sickness is not your thing, you might want to skip it.

I know, there are a lot of motion sickness and simulator rides at Universal Studios Florida, but it’s all based on movies so what…
