Oh My Gosh! Where do I even start with this post, the flight over to Florida was just short of 15 hours. The cabin was half full so it was a lovely atmosphere. 3 services and 4 & 1/2 hours break later we had made it. We got to the hotel for 12pm local time, as you can imagine we was all dead with jetlag and planned to have a ‘cat nap’ and meet for dinner later on. In tradional crew style only 3 of us came for dinner so we decied to stay local and have a early night with being up early for UNIVERSAL …
For once in my life I was awake before my alarm even went off, I don’t no if that was with excitement or jet lag hahah! Anyway, we was at Universal by 8:30am. The park wasn’t open until 9am so we took the opportunity to take some pictures.
I totally under estimated how amazing the park would be, everything down to the smallest detail was in place. We got tickets so we could go between the 2 parks, if I haven’t forgotten any of the rides below are a list of the ones we was lucky to get on.
Universal studios :
- Transformers The Ride 3D
- Hollywood Rip Ride, Rock it
- Shrek 4D
- Revenge of The Mommy
- Men In Black Alien Attack
- The Simpsons Ride
- Gringots Bank (Harry Potter World)
- Hogwarts Express – this was a short train ride over to the 2ndpark.
Island Of Adventure :
- Harry potter hogmeade Dragon Chase
- Doctor Dooms Fear Fall
- Steam Force
- The Cat In The hat
- The incredible Hunk
- Skull Island Reign Of Kong
I know, for 1 day this is a crazy amount of rises to attempt but we was so lucky with the waiting times, the longest we waited was 30 minutes which was for ‘Kong’.
I don’t think I can express how amazing this place is! it was a place I thought I would never get to experience but my job took me, I forget how lucky I am wth my job sometimes.Yes! It’s hard at times and does put you in difficult situations at 40,000ft but with layovers like this who could complain.
While we was walking around the park i met my role-model – could my day of got any better!
I took so many pictures but don’t worry, im not going to over-load you. Ive selected a few of the best ones to share.
