Craving some adventure with the little ones? These six kid-friendly local Florida attractions, offer excitement for all ages and some new enticements for the summer.
Universal Studios is a great place to start your family summer adventure and this June it is sure to sweep you off your feet as it immerses you into the world of TRANSFORMERS. Prepare yourself for what is called as the “Greatest battle you’ll ever ride”! The new TRANSFORMERS: The Ride–3D is an ultraimmersive, next generation thrill ride that blurs the line between fiction and reality and is set to open at Universal Studios June 20th. The TRANSFORMERS: The Ride–3D is the latest addition to Universal’s resorts in Florida since opening the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Islands of Adventure. Since then, Universal has begun an expansion to the park, redesigned its “Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man” ride with new 3D footage, and has opened the “Despicable Me”-themed “Minion Mayhem” attraction. For more information on the new TRANFORMERS attraction or any of the other awe-inspiring rides and attractions at Universal Studios, visit www.universalstudios.com.
Sea Monsters Revealed, an exhibition of the world’s largest plastinated sea creatures, has made its world premiere debut at the Museum of Science & Industry and will remain on display through Labor Day. Like the human anatomy exhibits MOSI has featured in the past, Sea Monsters Revealed uses the revolutionary polymer preservation technique commonly known as plastination to bring real sea animals onto dry land for an up-close and personal look at the most mysterious creatures the deep sea has to offer. Visitors not only get to see the outside, but also the inside of the most elusive aquatic life ever discovered, including a 6-foot-wide manta ray, a 15-foot-long mako shark, a giant squid, and an 18-foot-long, 3,000 pound whale shark. All specimens in the exhibition are authentic, stunning examples of the mysteries that lie beyond our shores and have been carefully recovered in accordance with the highest animal protection standards.
We Come to You
Also, mark your calendars for the World Oceans Day celebration at MOSI on June 8th. The world of Dr. Seuss will be at MOSI to help families celebrate this great day in classic One Fish, Two Fish style!
