During the hot summer months in Orlando a splash or two is a welcome reprieve from the Florida sun. If you’re seeking out a way to cool off while enjoying some thrills, here are the top 5 rides to get soaked at Universal Orlando:
Popeye and Bluto’s Bilge-Rat Barges
Get wet two different ways on Popeye and Bluto’s Bilge-Rat Barges at Universal’s Islands of Adventure. Not only does your raft flood with water as you dodge logs and debris from arch-nemesis Bluto, but you’ll also dodge onlookers who like to dump buckets of water and shoot water cannons into your rafts as you float by.
Dudley Do-Right's Ripsaw Falls
Laugh and get soaked on Dudley Do-Right’s Ripsaw Falls at Universal’s Islands of Adventure. You’ll get distracted by the parodies of other famous rides like Pirates of the Caribbean and Mr. Toad's Wild Ride before dropping 75-feet that ends with big splashes to get you soaked.
Jurassic Park River Adventure
If you like to be surprised by your soaks look no further than Jurassic Park River Adventure at Islands of Adventure. This ride is unsuspecting as you float along a river cruise taking in the gentle giants on shore. But suddenly your boat veers off course and you come face-to-face with a T-Rex. The only escape is a near-vertical drop 85 feet straight down into the waters below.
Jurassic Park Splash Zone
While not technically a ride, the Jurassic Park Splash Zone is a great way to get wet at Islands of Adventure. As the boats fall down from Jurassic Park River Adventure, guests waiting on the bridge will get downright soaked!
One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish
If you’re looking for a splashy ride the kids can enjoy too check out One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish at Islands of Adventure. Inspired by the Dr. Seuss story, this ride takes you flying in a fish up to 15 feet in the air. As you soar around and around use the controls in your fish to take you up or down. The ride’s song lyrics tell you when to move where. Pay attention because if you miss it you’ll get sprayed by the fishes.
