A veritable mecca for all things Hollywood, Universal Studios Hollywood™ offers a mix of entertainment industry-themed live shows, rides, attractions, and dining options that adults can enjoy on a weekend with the girls, a boy’s trip, or simply after you’ve tucked the kids into bed for the evening and called the sitter.

Thrilling Coasters

For the visitors to Universal Studios Hollywood™ who don’t have to give a second thought to height restrictions, there is an unmatched selection of thrilling, fast-paced, and sometimes terrifying rides.

The following are our top picks for Universal Studios Hollywood™ for the older crowd.

Revenge of the Mummy℠: The Ride

Based on the popular movie franchise, Revenge of the Mummy™: The Ride is one high-tech and high suspense thrill ride you don’t want to miss!

Built in 2004, this enclosed ride is a roller coaster that plunges into a world of forbidden treasures and pharaohs’ tombs, as well as a sudden attack of scarab beetles.

All this takes place at speeds of up to 45 mph, thanks to the ride’s use of linear induction motors, which launch riders back and forth through a warehouse that includes actual props from the sets of all your favorite The Mummy™ films.

Transformers™: The Ride 3D

The Transformers™: The Ride 3D is a can’t-miss experience that combines all of the fun of a dark ride coaster with the nostalgia of the beloved Transformers™ franchise that many adult visitors to the park grew up with.

As with most Universal Studios Hollywood™ attractions, the fun starts way before the ride even begins with an in-queue pre-show that includes a briefing from the Autobot’s leader, Optimus Prime himself.

You’re along for the ride as your favorite cars-turned-heroes battle the Decepticons to keep planet Earth and the Allspark safe.

Can’t-miss shows and attractions
