I'm taking a trip in march. I will probably be there for about 5 hours. I want to hit as many rides possible and I will be arriving there about two hours after the park opens. I cannot get an Express pass due to finanacial reasons. :guilty: I'm only at Universal Studios, not Islands of Adventure.

Rides to hit:
1. T2
2. Simpsons
3. Mummy

Any tips.

Thanks.

:thumbsup2

I would do

Simpsons
Mummy
MIB
Shrek 4-D

I was hugely disappointed in T2.

Are you a T2 fan, though?

We all have preferences but just for nostalgia sakes I prefer T2 > Shrek. Not to mention its over 10 years old (afaik 1996). Now ET... :snooty:

See everyone is different... The only time I go on it is if my friends brings their kids - I personally can't stand the smell, but we do make up some of the funniest names. DH & I were - Bonnie & Clyde!!! He said it in that order too!

I would do

1. simpsons
2. MIB
3. Mummy
4. Twister
5. Shrek
6. T2

That would bring you in a circle around the park. As soon as you enter check when the next T2 show starts, if it starts within a few minutes and you can walk in do that first but remember that the preshow eats up a lot of your time so you don't want to waste any of it standing in the T2 line. If you get it all done go back and do Jimmy Neutron and Jaws. Disaster is another huge time waster, only do that if you have everything else you want to see done.

The only thing that could possibly put a crimp on your plans would be IF...and that's a big IF...the new coaster is open in March. I don't think it will be ready but you never know. If it IS open, the Studios will be jammed!

I always have to give a fake name. Last time it was "Anastasia". ET freaks me out (DON'T JUDGE. THAT BIOHAZARD TENT SCENE GAVE ME NIGHTMARES AS A CHILD) and I don't like it when the ET says my real name. :sad2:

Are you there alone? Men in Black has a single rider line.

Personally if I had only 5 hours, I would do MIB and Mummy several times and throw in a once on ET, Simpsons and Shrek.

Thank you evryone for all of the help!

I know I probably can't, but is there any possible way I can ride everything on a Monday in March? I should be more specific.

Favorite to least favorite rides (want to hit the ones at the top the most...obviously)

1. Simpsons (how long of a wait? never rode it before)
2. T2
3. Shrek
4. Jaws
5. Disaster
6. ET
7. MIB
8. Beetlejuice
9. Twister
10. Jimmy Neutron

Thanks Everyone and please give feedback! :woohoo:

Disaster's preshows make it painfully long and Beetlejuice isn't a ride it's a show so you have to be there at a certain time for it. Nobody can predict the lines so if you already know what you want figure out the layout of the park and act accordingly.

Spiderman for me and in Universal it has to be the classic Jaws, still just as good every time i ride it !
