As I mentioned before, Jurassic Park was also a total thrill. The movie is one of my favorites, so it was great to be in what felt like the actual set. The dinosaurs are remarkably real. And it’s the perfect blend of relaxation and absolute terror—a surprise 84-foot drop. We bought a fantastic photo of us on the ride--the look on my husband's screaming face is priceless. The shows are also fantastic; our family favorite was "Water World," which was nonstop, action-packed fun. I took a lot of pictures of this attraction because the set was so well-done (included in my LA journal).
Real stars play the "Water World" characters—and they are clearly experienced, because they do stunts you only see in movies. And, as my sons will attest, it’s 100% better live. Just wait for the airplane… but I won’t spoil it.
I can’t really imagine a better day for the family. Everyone had the time of their lives.

Jurassic Park was a blast. It is one of our favorite movies, so it was a real treat to be travelling through what felt like the real set. The dinosaurs are so real, and the drop is frightening (and wet!). Waterworld is another good way to cool off if you're too old for the Nickolodean Blast Zone. The show left us drenched, with our mouths open in disbelief that something that cool and movie-like could happen before our eyes. My fiancee and I enjoyed playing the games as well--he won some pretty neat stuffed animals for me, photos included. We had the best time and recommend this as a vacation spot for anyone looking for a good time.

The ABC Commissary is located in the center of MGM Studios on the "Streets of America", and is one of the better counter service locations within MGM Studios. The ordering lines are typically on the longer side, but do move quickly. At the ABC Commissary, the food is quite tasty and the menu offers park guests combo selections such as a cheeseburger and fries, fish and chips, vegetable stir fry, and various wraps and sandwiches . They also serve delicious desserts such as chocolate mousse and Strawberry Parfaits. Beverages such as sodas and beer are also available.
After you order and pay for your food, you can then take your tray into the dining area where the decor highlights some of ABC's current hit television shows, such as the life-size replicas of a couple Grey's Anatomy's doctors. While you are eating you can also watch one of the several televisions that are mounted high up on the walls showing clips and commercials from more hit ABC shows such as Ugly Betty and American's Funniest Home Videos.
The ABC Commissary really isn't anything more than your typical counter service restaurant, but the food is pretty good and we return here every time we visit the MGM Studios theme park. I also find this to be one of the cleaner counter service restaurants with the staff always being attentive to the cleanliness of the dining area, which is a big plus as well. The interior decoration and television entertainment also makes this an enjoyable place to stop and eat, rest your feet, and cool off for a bit, out of the reach of the hot Florida sun.

Now it’s time to cool down. We’re entering the world of the dinos in Jurassic Park, the Ride. In this ride, you get in a boat the goes through the jungle. You’re attack by dinosaurs. At the end of the ride, the boat goes down a waterfall. It’s one of the best water drops we’re experienced. When you enter the ride, know that you’re getting wet. The scenery is great.
The only roller coaster in this park is Revenge of the Mummy, the Ride. It’s an indoor roller coaster. At the entrance are lockers for your backpack. Each car of the coaster is equipped with surround sound. The car is launched into the dark with a high speed, so be aware of your neck. Half way the ride, it turns backwards. It is one of the better roller coasters we have done in our life!
Back in the upper lot, we go our last attraction of the day: Van Helsing, Fortress Dracula. This is a haunted house you need to walk through. Inside are some real actors who try to scare you, but as for the rest, it’s not really spectacular.
For the people who love shows, you can go to Waterworld. This show should be great, but we missed it. Maybe we’ll see it next time. If you’re hungry, you can get a lot of food, but it’s expensive. For our dinner, we did choose a restaurant on City Walk.
It was a great day!!!
