Universal Orlando has unleashed its new advertising campaign for 2013, with the tagline “Vacation like you mean it.” It’s a great campaign that gets use excited for our next trip!

The fate of one of the greatest theme park shows ever lies under the control of a boy wizard. Through the Lost Continent just around the bend before you hit Hogsmeade is a very special attraction.This fantastic show is pure cheese and full of special effects including everything we love: explosions, water effects and fire!
With explosions, cheesy acting and a fantastical set, The 8th Voyage of Sinbad is pure theme park cheese and we love it.
Universal Orlando describes it as “…a stunt show of heroic proportions! Cheer on the heroes and boo the villains in this spectacular live adventure. See death-defying stunts and breathtaking feats as the mighty Sindbad and his wisecracking sidekick Kabob attempt to rescue the beautiful Princess Amoura from the evil witch Miseria.”
“The action takes place in a spectacular setting – a mysterious grotto littered with the wrecks of ships lured to their misfortune by the evil sorceress. You’ll be on the edge of your seat as you witness exciting battles between the heroes and Miseria’s ghoulish minions, explosive pyrotechnics, and eye-popping stunts including a fiery plunge into the water below.
You can watch the entire show on Youtube, but make sure to see it in person. While it lasts! We hear it may be removed for the rumoured Wizarding World of Harry Potter expansion, so move it to the top of your list for your next visit!
Brad, Nick and Kirby give you some of their thoughts of the most amazing ride ever created: Harry Potter & The Forbidden Journey at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. At the moment, this is the only version of the ride. Universal Studios Hollywood announced they will be building a version, and most recently Universal Studios Japan announced one as well. It will be interesting to see the similarities and differences between all 3.
TIP: Get to the park early in the day for the shortest lines and head straight for Ollivander’s Wand Shop. The line can be over 2 hours for this awesome experience. Harry Potter & The Forbidden Journey loads quickly and the line is half the attraction.
