USA 2012: Universal Studios Day 1Friday, August 31, 2012
For me, this was the best part of the whole trip –having visited 4 different theme parks in 4 days. I’m a kid at heart. To be honest, I think I was more excited to ride rides, watch shows and do whatever it is you do in theme parks than my niece and nephew (well, it’s not their first time). Besides, who doesn’t enjoy going to the “happiest places on Earth”? It’s like stepping into another world without having to leave this world. Sounds confusing, I know. HAHAHA.
There are two theme parks at Universal Orlando Resort – Universal Studios and Universal’s Islands of Adventure (where you can find the Wizarding World of Harry Potter). For our first day, we went to Universal Studios.
Our first ride! It’s a coaster one. I screamed my lungs out half of the time. The other half was spent with my eyes closed so as not to see the mummies. My mom got reaaaally dizzy afterwards.
Suddenly we were in San Francisco
Happy 100th Anniversary!
No more Jaws ride :(
I think the E.T. ride was the longest bike ride I’ve ever had. What a loser!
MIB Alien Attack is a shooting game. My niece and I got higher scores than my brother and my nephew. Girls rule.
Rip Ride Rockit – the ride I didn’t ride. :( I’m scared of roller coasters. I don’t like going upside down.
Us in our very fashionable raincoats! When we came to Florida, there was a thunderstorm (one of the reasons why I wasn’t able to take lots of pictures of the rides). Rain or shine, nothing can stop us (or it was more like we didn’t have a choice HAHA).
Twister is not a thrilling ride. Actually, it’s more like a show.
There’s no use crying over spilled
Despicable Me Ride!! Huge Minion +
Mini Normal Minion! There’s this minion party where the mascots and costumed people (behind me) dance. So cute! My mom won that minion stuffed toy in a target shooting game, by the way. She’s so cool and sweet. Hihi.
Last ride of the day :( It’s not your usual 3-D show where you just watch something on the big screen. It’s like a 3-D movie incorporated with a play.
Hollywood Walk of Fame
I have a lot of that and yes, it’s because HP is on the cover. Fan girl forever!
