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

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead

Everyone needs a day to themselves sometimes.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

On Sunday Morning

Breaking Free

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.
