http://photos.igougo.com/images/p520848-Orlando-The_Amazing_Adventures_of_Spiderman.jpgThe Universal Studios theme park in Orlando is another masterpiece of how they incorporate movie magic and how the fans can join in this magic with its rides and attractions. There are four theme parks to choose from namely Universal Studios Florida, Universals Islands of Adventure, the Wet n Wild Waterpark and soon to be opening The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at the Islands of Adventure. We would take a look right now on the Thrill rides you can find in Universal's Islands of Adventure.

The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman - One of the most popular superheroes has his own awesome ride right in the heart of Islands of Adventure. The Amazing Adventure of Spiderman is the pioneer ride that combines moving motion based ride, live action and a 3-D film all into one. As this ride takes you on an adventure where some of baddies of the Sinister Syndicate stole the Statue of Liberty and Peter Parker is the only person who can save everyone. This roving motion based simulator ride takes you along with Spiderman through the streets of New York, flying around tall buildings and of course diving through the streets below in a simulated 400 foot free fall. With this ride from your friendly neighborhood superhero, it would surely blow you away.

The Incredible Hulk Coaster - Once again Dr. Bruce Banner has created some of the most high risk rides in the Islands of Adventure. This roller coaster takes you from zero to 40 mph in a heartbeat. It takes you on turns on a weightless zero gravity roll. As you go through a lot of dips and dives in this less than 3 minute ride, you will suddenly feel like you have the power of the incredible Hulk right through this whole experience.

As it takes you from those harmless dinosaurs to the most hostile areas once you enter the facility. Of course the only way out of this mess is an 85 foot dive out of nowhere.
