With my ticket in hand, I waited anxiously in line to enter the park. My friends and I stepped inside, and I saw the enormous globe with the words “Universal Studios slowly moving around it. I had never been so excited in my life. As Payton, Dylan, and I walked around, I remember my senses being flooded. The ear-splitting roar of the roller coasters zooming past overhead, the smells of churros and salted pretzels permeating the air, and what seemed like thousands of people covering every inch of the park enhanced the whole experience.
Continuing to walk through the theme park, I started to realize just how many roller coasters were actually there, and we made sure to ride every single ride available. Overwhelming my senses and the adrenaline-charged thrill rides made my trip to Universal Studios the best I had ever had. The first roller coaster we decided to ride was the Hulk, which ended up being my favorite. We stood in line for nearly an hour. We were sweating profusely, and could barely hear ourselves think over the hundreds of other people speaking.Order now
As we got closer and closer, the screams of the children as the ride started to take off set our hearts racing. Finally, we were sitting in the front row of the cart as the crew started to count down the take-off. They all chanted simultaneously, “Three, two, one, go ! We were immediately going sixty miles per hour in a matter of seconds. Throwing our hands into the air, we screamed like banshees as we started zipping around sharp turns and going through loopty-loops. Getting off of the ride was a relief; we were finally able to catch our breaths and talk about how awesome the ride was.
My next favorite part about the park was how astounding the “Wizarding World of Harry Potter was. There was a castle on the hill that was an exact replica of Hogwarts from Harry Potter. Actors everywhere were dressed up as the characters from the movies; they went around the park reenacting scenes and singing songs. There was an amazing sweet smell of honey root beer as we walked our way up to the castle. When we arrived at the castle and stepped inside, I was filled with awe; just like in the movies, all of the staircases moved and the portraits talked to the people passing by. The entire scene was remarkable.
While we were there, we virtually played quiditch which was by far the most fun I had there. This trip had been the most fun I had had since I went to Disney World in the fifth grade. I loved riding all of the thrill rides and walking through all of the different aspects of the park. Also, seeing all the enormous groups of people, smelling all of the different foods, and hearing all of the exciting sounds of the roller coasters, blaring music, and laughter all around helped heighten the trips overall experience. This trip had been the best trip of my life and I cannot wait to return.
