Hey everyone, I thought this would be helpful for us to reference when going on Universal Studios or Island of Adventure rides. I know ideally any seat you sit on should have you see everything, but let’s be honest, it isn’t true. Some rides, I’ve only gone on once, so if anyone can help with that, it would be great. Also, feel free to add anything you like!
These I’ve ridden many times in different rows and stuff, and in my opinion these were the best spots:
Jurassic Park—any spot was good. I prefer the third row, but literally any were good.
Gringotts—first or second row of the first car. After sitting in the second card, I found I missed seeing stuff.
Buckbeak ride—first or last row
Simpsons—second row (my motion sickness didn’t hit as much when I sat here, when I rode in the front on a second trip, I was out for a few hours).
I found for the roller coasters, the front to be the best.
On the Mummy ever since the very first time of riding in the front, I only rode in the front seat for that ride. However, on my last time riding the Mummy, I was put near the back, and saw a lot more that you miss from being in the front: the fire on the ceiling and sides, things that popped out, etc. Anyone experience the same thing?
Kong and Fast and the Furious I only experienced once. Can anyone help as to where the best place to sit is? For both rides, I sat in middle rows, in the middle seat.
