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

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
