Stormforce Acceleration and Duddly Do-Right are also missing.

And since they included both Beetlejuice and Horror Make-up Show at US, The Sinbad Show could also be included at IOA.

Universal Studios:

Revenge of the Mummy - 10/10
Disaster! - 8/10
JAWS (R.I.P.) - 10/10
Men in Black - 7/10
Simpsons - 6/10
E.T. - 4/10
- I loved this as a kid, but it's too dated for me now.
Horror Make-Up Show - 8/10 - This would've been 10/10 if they hadn't changed the ending!

Haven't tried yet: Rockit, Despicable Me, Universal's Superstar Parade, Universal's Cinematic Spectacular <-- will probably never get to see this one
Will never do: Shrek, Terminator, Twister, Animal Actors, Beetlejuice

Islands of Adventure:

Forbidden Journey - 10/10
Dragon Challenge - 7/10
- This would be higher if the dragons still dueled.
Flight of the Hippogriff - 6/10
One Fish, Two Fish - 6/10
Cat in the Hat - 6/10
Seuss Trolley - 5/10
Hulk - 8/10
Spider-Man - 8/10 before the changes. I have not yet experienced the updated ride.
Storm Force - 2/10
- why is this even in the park?
Dr. Doom - 8/10
Jurassic Park - 8/10


Haven't tried yet: Poseidon's Fury (30 minute wait every time I walk by and then I forget to do it- grrrrr)
Will never do: Popeye, Dudley, Sinbad

While it's not something I'd repeat over and over or even visit each time, it is a neat attraction. The first two stages really aren't all that great, but the final show is pretty cool.
