Gumbo's Pic of the Day, May 22, 2014: Universal Studios, Orlando, Florida



Universal Studios, Orlando, Florida, is a fun and exciting family destination; However, although Universal Studios does offer activities for children of all ages, it is my opinion that the majority of this vacation destination caters to and may be more appropriate for older children (approximately eight years of age or older), for many of the attractions consist of wilder or rougher rides and deal with a more mature subject matter (such as Marvel super heroes, Harry Potter, Jurassic Park, or the Simpsons, to just name a few).   




Consisting of two theme parks (Universal Studios Florida and Universal's Islands of Adventure), the CityWalk (which contains a wide variety of restaurants and other entertainment activities), and hotels, Universal Studios will not disappoint.  I should also point out that Universal Studios Theme Park tickets are a fraction of the cost than Disneyworld Theme Park tickets.   For more information on Universal Studios, Orlando, Florida, click on this link


Please stay tuned for blogs which I will be writing over the next few weeks detailing my adventures at Universal Studios, Orlando, Florida.

Hi Travel Luver!


I can honestly say that I enjoyed all the rides at the Universal Studios Theme Parks, but if I had to pick a favorite or favorites, I would have to say that I particularly enjoyed the 3-D rides such as "Despicable Me Minion Mayhem" (where Gru turns you into a Minion and you embark on a wild ride through Gru's lab), "The Simpsons Ride" (where you embark on a wild ride through Krustyland and Springfield), and "The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman" (where you follow alongside Spiderman as he fights evil villains like Doctor Octopus and Electro, to only name a few). 


I hope that one day you will be able to visit the Universal Studios Theme Parks.  I'm sure you will have a great time, and then please let me know which rides you enjoyed the most. 


Cheers, and Happy Travels.
