My Day at US and IOA

Universal Studios & Islands of Adventure

The last time I went to Universal Studios was in May. The first ride my friends and I rode on was Terminator. This ride was pretty awesome. At first I really thought Arnold was there. The line wasn’t long which was nice. It was a Wednesday and it wasn’t crowded which made it easier to get to all the rides. The next ride we went on was Jimmy Neutron Adventure just standing in the line I was so excited to see where this adventure is going to take me. When I first got in my seat the ride started off slow but then we began moving around really fast trying to get away from the bad guys. The Rugrats were also in the ride. I felt like I was really running away from the bad guys with my favorite Rugrat Angelica. Even though this ride was for kids it was still a great adventure.

The 4D Shrek ride was a lot of fun as well. This ride is one of the newest rides at Universal and grabs a lot of attention. This ride also takes you on a great Adventure with all your favorite characters from Shrek the movie. My favorite part was when the donkey sneezes on you, you get really wet. When we were trying to get away from the bad guys the ride was moving really fast and one of my friends almost fell out of her seat. It was really funny. I defiantly recommend going on this ride for all ages.

After we went on some rides in Universal we walked over to Islands of Adventure the first ride was the Hulk we made sure that we got in the front row and we only had to wait about 5 minutes. That ride was awesome!!! Next we went to Spiderman there was about a 5 minute wait which wasn’t bad at all. Out of all the 3D rides Spiderman was my favorite. After going on only a few rides the park was closing early so we actually went to a concert at the Hard Rock afterwards. The concert was Pepper and Slightly Stupid it was an awesome show. The place was packed, people were crowd surfing and everybody seemed to be having a great time. The only bad part was that a cocktail was $13 a drink. Two drinks were more that what I paid for my ticket to see the show. After the show I actually met the lead singer and got to take a picture with him that was the highlight of my day! Overall my experience at Universal and Islands was a lot of fun. I have been back to the Hard Rock a bunch of times and every time I go it is always a thrilling experience. They always know how to put on a great show!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
