You can enjoy some of Universal's top attractions from the comfort of your home. Jump from hanging out with the Simpsons in Springfield to casting spells in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, all without having to leave your warm, cozy bed.
By the way – if you're missing Disneyland & California Adventure like we are, check out our post on virtual rides from another one of favorite theme parks after this one!
1. Jurassic World: The Ride
The updated Jurassic World ride is sure to keep you coming back for more. Whether or not you're a fan of the series, this ride is sure to amaze you. Since it's in 4k, take the time to check out the details they put into this ride that you may have otherwise missed if you were to go in person. The best part about watching this from home is not having to worry about getting soaked!

2. Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey
Harry Potter World is a MUST when visiting Universal Studios. If you've been waiting a long time for your acceptance letter from Hogwarts, this ride makes up for it (sorta – we're still a little disappointed). You can now experience the magic as many times as you want with this POV. Avoid the crowd, put on your Hogwarts robe, and soak it all in virtually. Take a journey with Harry and his friends throughout Hogwarts!

5. Revenge of the Mummy
Considered one of Universal Studio's best rides, it's no wonder Revenge of the Mummy has stood the test of time! If you've ever been here when you were a kid, you remember how terrifying it is.
