Found in Islands of Adventure Park, there are so many great attractions and things to do. Check out this list of can’t-be-missed superhero activities to help you plan.
The Incredible Hulk Coaster
This popular attraction takes you inside a research compound where you have volunteered to be a test subject. Suddenly you are blasted with gamma radiation and feel unstoppable! Then, you take off on a high-speed adventure with speeds of up to 67 miles per hour as you conquer seven different inversions and heights of 150 feet. Universal Express Pass is offered on this attraction and guests must be at least 54” tall to ride.
Meet Marvel Heroes and Villains
As you walk through the streets on Marvel Super Hero Island, be on the lookout for all of your favorite superheroes and villains! Characters such as Spider-Man, Captain America, Storm, Wolverine, Doctor Doom, The Green Goblin and more may all be spotted throughout the day. Make sure you have that camera ready for your own superhero selfie!
The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man
Go on a virtual reality adventure flying above the streets and climbing skyscrapers to save the Statue of Liberty. You will encounter the villains of the Sinister Syndicate and team up with Spider-Man to battle the bad guys and save the day. Universal Express Pass is available for this attraction and guests must be at least 40” to ride. Those guests under 48” must ride with a supervising companion.
Get strapped in for a ride on one of villainous Doctor Doom’s inventions designed to suck the fear out of people! You will be blasted 185 feet in the air and then drop again, without any warning at all! Guests must be at least 52” to board this attraction and Universal Express Pass can be utilized.
Whether you are looking for action figures, t-shirts or comic books, you can find something for everyone in your travel party. Whether you’re looking for Spider-Man, Iron Man, villains or heroes, you will have plenty of options to choose from!

Whether you are in one of the queue lines waiting to experience your favorite attraction or walking around exploring, see how many hidden gems you can find! In addition, look for all of the interactive elements on the island – from photo opportunities to any of the phones that give guests instructions to report a crime or hear heroes and villains communicating with each other.
