Immerse yourself in the next generation of blockbuster entertainment at Universal Studios Florida, where cutting-edge rides, shows and attractions bring your favorite movies, television and more to life at Universal Orlando Resort.

The fastest experience at Universal Studios to put you in the middle of the action is Fast & Furious — Supercharged, a high-octane chase based on the blockbuster films — the first of many starring roles waiting for you here. Zap aliens at MEN IN BLACK Alien Attack, save Earth from the Decepticons at TRANSFORMERS: The Ride-3D, survive the Revenge of the Mummy, and help a lovable alien phone home at the park’s longest-running attraction, E.T. Adventure.

You can also rock out at Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit, an adrenaline- and music-fueled roller coaster that reaches speeds of 65 mph. Or, take a wild tour of the Big Apple with late night’s reigning king at Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Of course, anyone in possession of Floo powder might want to teleport directly to Diagon Alley™, half of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ at Universal Orlando Resort. This faithful reproduction of the famous wizarding retail district also features themed shopping and dining, as well as the thrilling ride, Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts™. And at King's Cross Station, you can take the Hogwarts™ Express — which can take you directly to Hogsmeade™ at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.
