My Florida Holiday Round-up – Day 9

17 Jun

Day 9 – Monday 16th May

Today was the shuttle launch at the Kennedy space centre and 500,000 people went to watch it. We opted to watch it on the news before we went to universal studios. We got to the park really early and there was hardly anyone there!

I started by going on Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit and it was brilliant! You can select a song of your choice to listen to on the way round, so I choose Kanye West – Stronger to get me through it!! Thoroughly enjoyed it!

Next up we went over to Men in Black, which we love! As it was so quiet we went straight back on it, of course Paul beat me both times, but I am used to it now! After that we went on the Simpsons ride which was even better than we remembered!

We then walked over to Jaws. Last time we went to Universal Studios it was closed for maintenance so this was our first time. It was great fun, much better then we thought it would be.

Once we had recovered from Jaws 😉 I went on Revenge of the Mummy, and had the whole cart to myself! It was a strange experience being on it alone but I had great fun, screaming till my heart was content!

Straight after that we headed to Twister, again straight on it! Then we went to watch Shrek 4D – the first time we had to queue! Only for 15 mins though. We both love this – by far our face 3D/4D show at the parks.

After a spot of lunch we decided to go and watch Fear Factor Live, but had time for another quick go on Men In Black first! Fear factor live was great to watch and featured some very brave people, we were glad we missed the auditions 😉

Last but not least we headed to terminator 3D, with a quick stop to have our photo taken with Scooby Do!

After that we headed home for a quick chill by the pool before heading out to dinner at Applebees, Paul had chicken tenders and I had three cheese pasta with chicken which was YUMMY!

We finished the day with a quick soak in the hot tub before bed.
