Finally: Universal Studios

I've never been to Universal before, so it was a really fun day.

Ready for a fun day.
Hard Rock Cafe
Islands of Adventure. We didn't go to that park, but I'm sure it was a blast. Harry Potter World opened the day we were there. On the news that night it said that people were waiting five hours to get in.

The Jimmy Neutron Ride.
It actually started out pretty crappy. We waited in line for the Rip, Ride, RockIt, for about 45 minutes. We were getting really close to the stairs where you go up to get on the ride and they announced that the ride was temporarily suspended because of inclement weather. I got an attitude that was about as great as a four year old, stomped my feet, and got out of line. We went to Twister because it is an indoor ride and when we were done, found out that the roller coaster was back up and running. We went back and waited in line for it, for an hour and ten minutes, and it was so worth it. The coaster was awesome. I don't particularly care for sitting in the front row of seats, but Josh does. Luckily for him, the people in front of us forfeited their front row seats and gave them to us. Lucky me. It was super scary...and fun.
Parts of the Rip, Ride, RockIt. The theme was you got to pick the song you listened to during the ride. I picked Pump It by the Black Eyed Peas, and I don't remember hearing any of it after the first drop because I was screaming so loud.
Supposedly the coaster went through this building, but I don't remember it at all. I probably had my eyes closed.
Here is where the fake stuff starts. I didn't realize that the park was made to look like a movie set, so I was thinking that all the stuff in the park was real until Josh told me. I thought this was a subway station like I saw in Chicago.
The library.

That is a real Starbucks. Everywhere I tell you.

Dill had fun in the Fievel Goes West playground.
Mel's Diner
The Mystery Machine
This street reminded me of the Cosby Show...except for that old car.
The details are really cool.
