Getting the most out of a Universal Studios Tour

By Cory Everett, Features Editor

After flying thousands of miles and telling your kids what an awesome experience it would be when you “get to Universal Studios”, it would be nice to have the inside track on how to max out your time there, wouldn’t it?

Well, here’s what you can do at the Universal Studios theme park in Orlando, Florida. Let’s take a quick look at some of the attractions now on offer at the Universal Studios park in Orlando.

First off, if you would like to “get beneath the hood” and see how films are made then your first stop should be Production Central, Production Central area of Universal Studios. Found just beyond front gates of Universal Studios, you will find yourself in the middle of a genuine working film and TV production studio. And while you are in Production Central you can treat your family and yourself to an impressive Shrek excitement.

Shrek 4D features an original 3D film that the studio announces is produced with Ogrevision. Here you can join Shrek, Mule and Princess Fiona on a wild excitement. According the Universal Studios site, "You see, hear and really FEEL the action right from your seat.

" That, sounds a little like something which will delight any family of film lovers. Do you want to offer protection to the earth from an alien attack? Then you need to hop onboard the Men in Black Alien Attack ride. Universal has made 120 extra-terrestrial species for this attraction.

The Terminator series of films was an imaginative glance at the future, and the Terminator attraction at Universal Studios lives up to the result of that preferred trilogy. All Terminator fans will get a kick out of this ride. Are you prepared to stand up to the all out attack of Jaws? Then get onboard the Jaws ride at Universal but be cautious because you are going to need a larger ship. Just when you believed it was safe to go back in the water, a giant fin slices through the waves and you are unexpectedly head to head with 3 tons of Great White ire.

As well as hi-tech thrill rides, Universal offers masses of outside entertainment. THE END
