Hey guys! Prior to today, we went to Universal Studios Islands of Adventure. So today we got to go to the actual Universal Studios. I've actually gone to Universal Studios Hollywood a few years back, but never to Universal Studios Orlando. So today was fun! I woke up at 5:30, and got ready. Yesterday we actually arrived home early, and got to sleep at 10:30, which is pretty early compared to all the other days. We soon found ourselves in the parking lot of Universal Studios, and surprisingly I was very tired despite the long sleep I had yesterday. Today we didn't have a tour-so it was just rides and attractions all day. The first ride we went on was a stimulation for the movie Despicable Me. This simulation was just where you sit down and it vibrates and tilts-not an actual roller coaster simulator. It was in 3-D also, but I dislike the 3-D simulators because it gives me a headache and dizziness. After Despicable Me we went to this big roller coaster. I didn't go on this one, and so did some other people. It was just too intense for me! I mean I could handle the dragon roller coaster, with it's cork screws and cobra rolls (loops) and the speed, but I didn't want to go on this one. It just scares me that it goes vertically straight up in the air really high then you go upside down, but you only have a lap belt! I'm all about safety actually, and the class could only go on single rider because it would take too long to wait in a line with everyone together. We then went to transformers. Transformers is a simulation where two transformers fought and we were recruits for that mission. The mission was to protect the AllSpark from this bad transformer. After transformers we went onto this ride called the Mummy. The Mummy is a rollercoaster but it's in the dark. The Mummy was awesome and had some cool special effects like fire. You could feel the heat blazing across your face as the flame lit up on the roof. Then we went to the Simpson Simulator. I honestly didn't like this ride/stimulator. It was in 3-D and it just made me so dizzy and gave me a headache and some motion sickness. And then we just rode more rides and simulators such as MIB, where you shoot aliens. After that we split up into groups. One went to eat lunch and the other went to go to Universal Studio Islands. I are lunch because I was so hungry and not in the mood for a rollercoaster. I ate this bacon cheeseburger at this 'fast food restaurant'. After lunch we got to go on the playground and have some fun. I loved the playground! Saul, Nicole, Taylynn, Micah, and I played hide and seek tag in the big area. Saul and I had this sort of alliance. It was a HUGE workout and exercise for me. But next time we need to clarify who is actually it because we spent 20 minutes both teams running away from eachother. We eventually went to a water ride. I wore a poncho and my windbreaker so I wouldn't get my clothes wet. The ride was so refreshing especially because we were all so tired from the playground! I rode the water ride twice. We then ate dinner at City Walk, I ate a California Whopper. After that we went home and got all packed because we leave the house tomorrow (now today) and move into the hotel. I'm pretty sad about that though, I know I'm going to miss my own bed and game room :(. Today was fun, and I feel happy about it. But right now, I'm extremely tired, so Bye and make sure you check out Alaysia's Media Blog for an update on Laser Tag with our Florida Pen Pals! Bye!!
