7 Secrets at Universal Orlando Resort™ you might not know

7 secrets at Universal Orlando Resort

Shhhhh! You can keep a secret, right? Wouldn’t want any Muggles finding out now, would we? There’s just so much to see and do at Universal, but keep an eye out for these little secrets:


1. You can call the Ministry of Magic

This one’s a good’un. It looks like any normal red phone box. But step inside, dial ‘Magic’ (62442) and you’ll be connected to the Ministry of Magic. 


2. Get a guitar delivered to your hotel room

Staying at the Hard Rock Hotel®? Live like a rock ‘n’ roll superstar at Universal Orlando Resort™ — order an electric guitar and amp to be delivered to your room! Awesome. (Just don’t throw your TV out the window, ok?)


3. See if you’re the same height as Beyoncé

All the rooms at the Hard Rock Hotel® at Universal Orlando Resort™ have a full length mirror with a measuring stick showing how tall famous rock stars are.


4. There’s a hidden playlist on Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit

Sure, the song list is already pretty sweet on this ride, but there’s a hidden list of gems buried behind a little trick. Once the restraints have come down, press down on the Rockit logo for ten seconds and enter the 3-digit code for your chosen track. True Rockit fans will know the track list beforehand, so don't forget your code!


5. Go rock climbing

Wait, what? Yup — you’ve got two 50ft rock-climbing walls located inside Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. You know… if you fancy it.


6. Homage to the Beetlejuice Graveyard Revue

The new Fast & Furious – Supercharged™ ride sits on the site where Beetlejuice Graveyard Revue once stood. But in the queue there’s a small Beetlejuice figurine. Can you spot it?

HINT: It’s on a shelf.


7. Spot Adam Kubert’s first name

In Marvel Super Hero Island®, you can see some super huge facades of your comic book favourites. Look closely at each one, and you’ll see the artist's name creatively hidden in each. 


As if Universal Orlando Resort™ wasn't awesome enough already? Check out our Universal holidays, and you could be hunting down these secrets for yourself!
