Universal’s Islands of Adventure – Ride Raves Part 7: IOA
Ride Raves – Part 7: Universal’s Islands of Adventure
This beautifully landscaped park is home to some of the coolest roller coasters and rides that an Orlando vacation has to offer. Universal’s Islands of Adventure is home to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Jurassic Park, The Lost Continent, Toon Lagoon, Seuss Landing, and Marvel Superhero Island. The different sections of the park all offer a completely unique experience.
The Incredible Hulk Coaster
Personally, I think this is one of the best coasters the park has. Take off on this coaster is equal to the force of a jet taking off, going from 0 to 40 in 2 seconds with top speed of 67 mph. With a towering height of 150 feet, riders are sure to get their kicks on this one.
Jurassic Park River Adventure
If you’re a fan of water rides, dinosaurs, and awesome, this ride should probably be on your agenda. When it first begins, it seems innocent enough with the cute baby dinosaur and its mother. But things take a turn for the worst when you suddenly find yourself in dangerous territory – Velociraptor territory. It’s a mad dash to safety with screams, blood, and teeth all around. Enjoy the 85 foot drop into the darkness.
Doctor Doom’s Fearfall
For those of you unfamiliar, Doctor Doom is the The Fantastic Four’s mortal enemy who is now out to scare the wits out of you with this ride. I’m not a huge fan of heights, but still ended up on this one. It wasn’t so bad if you enjoy things like terror and having your stomach relocate to your skull. The view of the park is really beautiful when you’re all the way at the top. Then you plummet down faster than the force of gravity!
