Universal Studios Hollywood Rides: Ranked
Disney Tourist Blog

One thing about me, you can always find me at Universal Studios Hollywood.There is nowhere I enjoy being more than the park, and obviously, a huge part of that is the rides. Given the fact that I've been to the park upwards of a hundred times, I think I am qualified to rank the rides.

Revenge of the Mummy

Anyone (who's not boring) who has been to the Hollywood park can agree, Revenge of the Mummy is the best ride in the park. No ride goes as fast or has people screaming as loud as this one. The only downfalls with Revenge of the Mummy are how short the ride is, and how much of the line is outside and not in the themed building.

Jurassic World

Let me just be clear, Jurassic World is my second least favorite line to stand in at the park, but the ride is so good that it makes up for the lack of theme and air conditioning. Nothing beats the drop at the end and getting soaked after a long, hot Los Angeles day.

Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey

Harry Potter has been my favorite thing since i could form opinions on film. The fact that a ride exists where i can walk through the castle before flying through it? Absolutely mind blowing. Anytime i’m in an off mood i find myself here. This ride makes me so happy.

Transformers: The Ride- 3D

It took me years of coming to the park to finally ride Transformers: The Ride-3D, and now it’s a ride i never miss! I truly think the 3D effects are the best out of anywhere they’re used in the park, and i always have so much fun on this ride.

I am officially a freedom fighter.

The Secret Life of Pets: Off the Leash

The Secret Life Of Pets: Off The Leash is the newest attraction at Universal Studios Hollywood, and in my opinion one of the cutest. The ride has a classic dark ride feel, where you sit in a car and it takes you through a storyline. If you’re bringing little ones to the park this is the perfect ride for them!

Kung Fu Panda Adventure

Nothing unlocks my inner child more than sitting in Dreamworks theater and seeing this 4D Kung Fu Panda movie. Everything about this ride feels like an escape from the hustle and bustle of the park, there is AC and the most incredible 360 degree screens you’ve ever seen.

Plus, having the magic mirror introduce the show is just the best.

Flight of the Hippogriff

Now hear me out, I love a good rollercoaster, but Flight of the Hippogriff is so incredibly short that I can't put it any higher. You are on this ride for less time than you're on The Mummy, which is saying something! The views at sunset of Hogwarts on this ride though are unbeatable.

Despicable Me Minion Mayhem

Despicable Me: MinIon Mayhem is the perfect ride for any kids you're bringing to the park. The line is adorably themed, and the ride itself is nothing crazy, just a simulator with bench seats that can fit four people. This isn't a ride I have to hit every time I come to the park, but whenever I do, I enjoy it.

The Simpsons Ride

For some reason The Simpsons ride always has one of the longest lines in the park, which makes no sense, because this ride feels very rundown, and the actual line to get to the ride is beyond boring. This is the only ride at the park i genuinely think could easily be replaced, anything else would be better.

Personally, I am campaigning for E.T

The Plight Of Being Bigger Than A D-Cup

"Big boobs are like puppies: they're fun to look at and play with, but once they're yours, you realize they're a lot of responsibility." - Katie Frankhart, Her Campus

This probably sounds like the most self-absorbed, egotistical, and frankly downright irritating white-girl problem... but there's more to this I promise.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"

I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.
