Are you looking to do something a bit different this year on Independence Day? Take a break from the traditional cookout and fireworks to enjoy a day of adventure with your favorite movie characters at Universal Orlando Resort. Whether you like thrill rides, water slides, or karaoke clubs, Universal Orlando Resort has the perfect activities for you. Here’s just a peek at what your Independence Day celebration at Universal could include.
Experience a Brand New Ride
Be one of the first to ride the newest ride at Universal Orlando Resort. Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure™ is slated to open June 13, just in time for you to enjoy when you visit on Independence Day. You’ll join Hagrid on this exhilarating roller coaster ride as you venture into the Forbidden Forest in search of the most magical creatures in the Wizarding World.
After your adventure, take some time to explore the rest of the Wizarding World. Make sure to purchase the two park ticket so you can enjoy a ride on the Hogwarts Express. Cool off with some refreshing butterbeer and catch the evening show at the HogwartsTM castle from the HogsmeadeTM village.
Cool Off at Volcano Bay
As the summer temperatures rise, you’ll want to cool down at Volcano Bay. Whether you have a mild or wild time depends on what rides you choose.
This is the perfect place to stretch out in the sun or enjoy a swim among the gentle waves as you take in the views of KrakatauTM, the massive volcano at the center of the park. But be careful – it’s so relaxing you might be tempted to stay there all day.
Maku Puihi Round Raft RidesTM
The whole family can ride on this multi-person rafting ride. You’ll twist and turn as you wind your way down through the lava tube and a huge funnel.
Ko’okiri Body PlungeTM
Featuring a 125 foot drop at a nearly vertical 70 degree angle, the Ko’okiri Body PlungeTM is currently the tallest waterslide in America. Only the bravest souls should attempt this one.
Party All Night – No Theme Park Ticket Needed
Perhaps you’d like to avoid the expense of admission to the theme parks, or maybe you’re looking for a change of pace. Either way, a Fourth of July celebration at Universal CityWalkTM has got you covered. Nightclubs and specialty restaurants at CityWalk make this the ideal spot for a 21+ celebration, but families with children can also join in the fun. Enjoy a game of mini golf with the kids or catch a summer movie in the movie theater, followed by a build-your-own froyo sundae at Menchies.
