Universal

Opened on May 28, 1999, covering over 100 acres, Universal's Islands of Adventure is one of the top parks for thrill seekers. Two rides at this park top the list.

The Incredible Hulk

Reaching 110 feet in the air, this ride catapults riders at speeds of up to 67 mph. According to Universal, the coaster boasts seven complete inversions as well as two underground sections. The Incredible Hulk guarantees to please the biggest coaster fanatic.

The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man

The state of the art, high-definition 3-D graphics in this virtual reality ride, features graphics so vivid; you’ll actually feel like you’re flying throughout New York City with Spiderman.

SeaWorld Orlando

Opened in 1973, SeaWorld is traditionally known as a marine zoological park, but don't let that fool you! Sea world is also the home to two of Orlando's top rides.

The Mako 

Orlando's tallest, fastest, and longest roller coaster. This extreme coaster takes riders up 200 feet and has a maximum speed of 73 MPH. Named after the fastest shark in the world, the Mako delivers high speeds, deep dives, and amazing thrills at every turn.

Kraken Unleashed 

A steel, floorless roller coaster. Riders on this new virtual reality ride wear headsets attached to the roller coaster, which covers their eyes and ears. Riders reach speeds of 65 MPH as they race through the dark hunting grounds of the mythical sea monster.

Disney's Hollywood Studios

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror
No visit to Orlando would be complete without a taste of Disney Magic. The Twilight Zone takes you back in time. The ride first lifts you 200 feet up and then suddenly drops you 130 feet, reaching nearly 40 MPH. If the idea of stepping into another time dimension doesn't scare you, the free fall will.

While there is always plenty of exciting things to do in Orlando, we hope these three stops truly thrill you. To learn more about all of the major Orlando Theme Parks, download our theme parks guide today.
