First attraction that I visit is of course The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. This attraction is amazing beyond words, I'm hypnotyzed because it's really like I'm in Harry Potter's world. Anyway, you can try the 3D Cinema which very fantastic. Moreover, you can see the Hogwarts Castle in this arena and buy the Harry Potter's Magic Wand.

Next, my favourite attraction is Jaws. Did you ever watch Jaws movie? well, this movie is one of the famous movie based on true story. In Universal Studio, this attraction become people's favourite and of course it's very safe. I love the concept of this attraction because it's like really in the movie setting, house in lake side. In this area, you'll ride a boat then you'll get attack from a shark, just like in movie. Very thrilling.

First is ordinary roller coaster, forward roller coaster and the second one is backdrop roller coaster. Both of roller coaster are amazing and scary me, but I really wanna do this again.
