Best ride at Universal/Island of Adventure


Mar 8, 2001
Hi everyone - My husband and I were chatting with friends the other night about our last trip to Universal and boy did we disagree about our fave rides!!
My other half just loves roller coasters and thought that the Hulk Coaster was the best ever. I don't have much of a stomach for them <IMG WIDTH="15" HEIGHT="15" SRC="/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif" alt="razz"> and thought that the spiderman ride was awesome :D

What ride do you all consider the best?

I think Hulk is awesome. :cool:

As much as I love Spiderman, I have to say DUDLEY DO RIGHT'S RIPSAW FALLS. I just think it is the coolest looking ride with a final drop that knocks the wind out of you! :eek: ;)

Perhaps I'm in the minority, and it's not a ride but an attraction, but I thought Poseidon's Fury was the best :D

How can you argue?! Spiderman is a break through attraction. The first of its kind. When I first rode it, I was amazed because I had never seen anything like it before. Roller coasters have been around for a long time. Granted, The Hulk is a great coaster. Cmon, when Spiderman lands on your Scoop at the beginning of the ride while you are moving, that is the coolest thin I have ever seen. You can practically reach out and shake hands with him. The Spiderman ride has changed the landscape of theme park attractions. Hands down, Spidy is the best; or is that hands up. Oh well, whatever!

I have lots of favorites but Spiderman blew my mind so much I can't think of anything that I was that impressed with. It will always get my vote until someone comes up with something better.

Spiderman was the best ride I have ever been on, anywhere, including WDW. I would wait 2 hours for it again, and I HATE LINES!!!
I love rollercaosters, and Hulk is my favorite at IOA, but for best overall ride it has to be SPIDEY. Th effects are awesome and it's great to have an exciting ride that kids and non-coaster lovers can enjoy too.
Spider-man for me with the Hulk a close second! :D

Spiderman is definatly the most break through attraction, and my favorite ride for the first year or so IOA was opened (and I still love it).

My current favorite ride is Dueling Dragons, with Ripsaw Falls a close second.

Water rides are a fave. for me so I will have to say Bilge Rat Barg and Rip Saw Falls. I love getting wet.
