Universal Studios Florida is an amusement park and production studio located in Orlando, Florida, United States.

Universal studios Florida took the concept of a Hollywood tour scene and developed it into a bigger and more independent attraction. For example, in Hollywood, tram tours of the studio are close to the coastline and "attacked" by Jaws before they travel to the next part of the tour. In Florida, guests enter the "Jaws" attraction and will board a ship that is touring the fictional Amity Harbor, where they meet sharks, then exit back to the park at the end of the attraction. This theme park initially had the appeal of a Studio Tour that visited production facilities, but the tour was stopped.

  • Barney & Friends (HIT Entertainment)
  • Ghostbusters and Men in Black (Sony's Columbia Pictures)
