Universal Day 1

My first time at universal, was super excited! We got the itrolley to the park which was fun! The itrolley costs Disney employees only 25cents which is mad, and kinda looks like a tram!

We arrived just after 9 at the park and picked up our tickets that we had ordered online. We had managed to get a brilliant deal of unlimited entry to both parks for 2 weeks and entry to Wet and Wild for the price of a 3 day entrance ticket!

We went straight to Hulk a huge Rollercoaster as it was only a 20 min wait, we had been recommended to queue the extra to ride the front so we did! It was definitely worth the longer wait as it was so good from the front! I loved it!

Next we went on Dr Dooms Fear Fall which looked a bit like detonator at Thorpe Park. I thought it would be similar where it slowly goes to the top and then drops you. I wasn't expecting to be throwing straight up super fast and them drop! It was unexpected but fun!

Next myself, Rach and Steph went to Hogsemede while Amy and Sasha rode Jurassic Park. The ride only had a 35 min wait so we queued for that and chose the blue side! Again this was a really good ride, lots of twists and turns and going upside down!

We met up with Amy and went to board the Hogwarts Express to the new Diagon Alley! I don't watch Harry Potter, or have not read the books (sorry!!!) but was still excited to ride the Hogwarts Express! It was so cooool, Harry and the gang 'walk' past your carriage and say they won't sit I'm our carriage as it's too full of first years!

We arrived into Kings Cross Station at platform 9 3/4 and it felt like home! It was very realistic and the sounds of trains of the underground could be heard and the tannoy announcing trains leaving, Such as the 13.34 first capital connect train to Hull! It was so cool!

We then went to Diagon Alley, as I haven't seen the films I just looked and took pictures but apparently it was very like the films and out of this world! I did enjoy butter beer ice cream though. I didn't know if I would like it but it was super tasty!

After Harry Potter we grabbed some lunch in the Simpsons section from Moe's. We went to Krusty's Burger and I had a chilli dog and Krusty's Kurly fries! Mmmmm!

It began to rain so we rode ET, which was hilarious! You are in a bicycle riding around!

After this we watched the animal show which was sooooo good! My favourite show I've seen with lots of animals who had been trained so well and were really talented!

After the show we went to shrek 4D which was good. The seats move and it was so funny we couldn't stop laughing!!

After this we went on the mummy which is a Rollercoaster in the dark and it goes backwards!

Next we watched the superstar parade, which featured minions spongebob, hop and Dora the exlporer!

We then queued for 90 mins for rip rock and ride Rollercoaster! It was worth the wait the ride was insane!! You go up vertically then ride the coaster listening to the song you have chosen! We all chose daft punk! The ride was scary and exciting! My favourite ride of the day followed by hulk!

Afterwards we grabbed some sweet food from a bakery and got the bus home!

Literally such a good day! Buzzing to return on Tuesday!!  :) 

Shout out to Sasha and her fam, it was lovely to see you briefly! xoxo
