Universal Studios in Orlando, FL; Fun for the whole Family

Universal Studios of Florida has been entertaining the American Public for more then eighty years and continues to be one of the premier vacation destinations in the country. Universal Studios is a collection of theme parks based around popular television shows and movies.

At Universal Studios in Orlando Florida you will be able to interact with the world of television and movies in ways you've never thought possible. There are full scale movie sets, rides, games, and plenty of dining options from kid friendly meals to fine dining options for the parents.

The Park has six different sections, with each offering a different experience. The sections are laid out in such a way that seeing all six is possible in one day, but if you truly want to enjoy the park a longer stay is suggested.

The first section is Production Central. In Production Central the attractions include Shrek 4-D and Jimmy Neutron's NickToon Blast. Both rides are interactive cinematic adventure's that are appropriate for children.

The next section of the park is New York. The streets and alleyways of New York as it was in the nineteen-twenties are very representative of the time period. Within this section there are Revenge of the Mummy...the Ride, Twister...Ride it Out, and The Blues Brothers Live Blues Show. These attractions are better suited to a teen and above audience.

After NY comes the Hollywood section of the park. In Hollywood the Terminator 2:

3-D, Universal Horror Make-Up Show, and Lucy - A Tribute are the attractions. The Lucy show is a close up look of the television classic I love Lucy.

The World Expo is the next stop on the tour bus and it features The Simpson's Ride, which was voted the best attraction of 2008, and The Men in Black Alien Attack interactive film.

San Francisco is up next and the main attractions there are Jaws, Fear Factor Live, Beetlejuice's Graveyard Review, and Disaster which simulates an earthquake measuring 8.3 on the Richter scale.

The survivors of the mayhem in San Francisco will make it to the last section of the park, Woody Woodpecker's Kidzone. The kidzone is for younger children and has Animal Actors, E.T. Adventure, A Day in the Park with Barney, Curious George Goes to Town, Woody Woodpecker's Nuthouse Coaster, and Fievel's Playground.

Universal Studios is not only a fun place to visit, but it is located in beautiful Orlando which is a great place to live. The housing market is currently down in Orlando due to the overbuilding that occurred during the housing boom. There are many properties that can be found for a fraction of their original price right now making Orlando a great place to consider if you are thinking about a move.
