Universal Studios Florida

The first Universal Studios theme park in Orlando is still pulling tricks to amaze us—including the new Diagon Alley, a new Harry Potter-themed land.

If you are a movie buff, chances are that you will rediscover familiar sights and sounds throughout Universal Studios Florida. And if you are not, you will be blown away by the intricate detail and sheer excitement in every one of its attraction, rides and exhibits—and that’s just what you see when you first walk into this theme park.

When it first opened its gates in 1990, Universal Studios Florida was a fresh breath of air for tourists who had been coming to Orlando to the same theme parks from its competitors, making it an immediate novelty in Central Florida. Today, this theme park continues to welcome thousands of people every day and growing.

Over the years, Universal Studios Florida has reinvented itself, remodeled, demolished, and rebuilt to keep up with the increased number of visitors. One such recent change is the addition of Diagon Alley, a new Harry Potter-themed section of the park featuring King’s Cross Station, from where you can ride the Hogwarts Express train to Hogsmeade in its sister park, Universal Islands of Adventure.

Currently, Universal Studios Florida is divided into several themed sections:

  • Production Central
  • New York
  • Hollywood
  • San Francisco
  • World Expo
  • Springfield
  • Woody Woodpecker’s Kidzone
  • London/Diagon Alley (Latest addition in 2014)

Other exciting attractions at Universal Studios Florida include Terminator 2: 3-D Battle Across Time, Transformers 3-D: The Ride, Twister… Ride it Out, Revenge of the Mummy, Disaster!, Men in Black: Alien Attack, and The Simpsons Ride.
