I went for this twice! It is well worth it. The indoor animations and almost-real effects were amazing. The second time we dragged our mom for this ride and she doesn’t regret! After this ride you’ll bring back loads of screams from yourself and fellow riders.

Altogether, the monstrous earliest creatures, drops in water, the electrifying circular rafts make a fantastic ride that takes adrenaline-junkies into the Jurassic Park.

5. Enchanted Airways

Far Away Zone

This one is a junior rollercoaster that lets you face your fears. Fast tilts still make the most part of this enchanted journey.

Unlike the other heart-stirring roller coasters, you can enjoy this one with the view of some amazing fairy-tale creatures and the magnificent castle backdrop.

6. Accelerator

Sci-Fi City Zone

Fed up of roller coasters? Need some other thrill ride? Then this one is the best! Near the Battlestar Galactica this ride is stirring and yet satisfying. It is as if you are sugar in coffee and need to be dissolved!

This ride has its own way of catching your brain with all the generous spins and twirls. And getting dizzy after the topsy-turvy turns is bearable.

7. Puss in the Boots: Giant Journey

Far Far Away Zone

This is also a must experience attraction for thrill-seekers.

This ride features one of your favorite childhood characters; the SHREK family. Puss and Boots will surely give you a memorable ride. It can even be with your kids as well!

8. Canopy Flyer

Relaxing Attractions For Families

1. Sesame Street Spaghetti Space Chase (for kids)


New York Zone

This gentle track is a good idea for fun loving adults and children who love Sesame Street. This place will bring you back all those old sweet memories.

Families will love the leisure rides featuring their favorite Sesame Street characters and will surely have a charming experience.

But the main thing I want to mention is that usually this ride has a huge queue ahead and it can even make you wait for about 40 minutes! Therefore, make sure you check the waiting time before joining the queue. In this long time, you can go up for some other activities or shows. Remember to check the shows timings before as well so that you don’t miss any important show.

2. Treasure Hunters (for kids)

Treasure hunters - Universal studios

Ancient Egypt Zone

After you have exhausted from all the thrillers you can try this one if you want a more laid back one. While riding you can witness some amazing lifelike animals like hippos, snakes and vultures etc. But if you find a minimum 10-15 minutes waiting then skipping it won’t be that bad! You can better go for the Revenge of the Mummy once again!

3. King Julien's Beach Party-Go Round

Madagascar Zone

Another lovely stop for little kids! Try this ride at night because it’s not only a beautiful and lively sight but it will bring you some marvelous pictures!

This entire attraction is filled with the lovely Madagascar characters and lively music to make your day end with a good mood!

4. Madagascar: A Crate Adventure

Madagascar Zone

You can spend good time in Madagascar zone if you are the family person hanging with a couple of kids!

A Crate Adventure is perfect for kids that carry you back into the scenes of blockbuster Madagascar movie. Although I want to mention that as an adult and a thrill seeker it was very boring for me! The climax was when I thought that we would get wet under the waterfall but then it stopped! It definitely is meant for kids!

5. Magic Potion Spin

Far Far Away Zone

This small attraction will cover you if you like lesser complex rides. I mean not you, your kids!  The attraction is located in the Fairy Godmother’s Potion shop and is perfect only for kids under 100cm. Personally, I think this attraction could be much better with some good view and height.

6. Dino-Soarin

The Lost World Zone

This ride is perfect for kids and non-adventurous  parents as well. It may be a good chance to soar high and let the wind caress your skin as you sit in colorful prehistoric creatures. In addition, this one is much better than the Magic Motion Spin or the Crate Adventure!
