Believe it or not, the sunshine state does get rain at times, especially during the summer. While storms typically hit during the afternoon and last for a short period of time, there are some occasions where it can rain all day. In Orlando, when it rains, it pours. If you ever get stuck at Universal Orlando on a rainy day, here are a few things you can do to get some fun out of a rather unpleasant occurrence.
Ride an indoor attraction
Indoor rides are a great option for guests visiting the parks on rainy days. Some believe heading to an indoor attraction on a rainy day isn’t a great idea because most crowds will do the same, but you should know that isn’t always true. On rainy days, the parks are usually less crowded. While it may not be great for tourists to explore the park on a rainy day, there is a benefit to that because the parks tend to be less packed.
Grab a bite
If it’s lunch or dinner time, why not grab a bite? There are many great indoor restaurants to eat at that operate on rainy days.
Ride an outdoor attraction
By nighttime, the sky should clear up, if it does, this is a great opportunity for you to experience an outdoor attraction if any reopen. Rides like Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit, The Incredible Hulk Coaster, and Dragon Challenge are great rides for thrill seekers and shouldn’t be skipped. With the park being quite, you’ll be able to hit the outdoor attractions as many times as you’d like.
If you’re looking for shelter during the rain there are many places around Universal Studios Florida that are covered and contain entertainment. At The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley you’ll find an area with an overhead covering, providing a good atmosphere and a safe place to rest.
