Stormforce Islands of Adventure
Many of the rides at Marvel Super Hero Island are a little scary for younger children however you will find that Storm Force Accelatron is the most kid-friendly attraction on this island.
Storm Force Accelatron is located between The Incredible Hulk Coaster and Cafe 4 and can be easily missed due the crowds that gather for the The Hulk. Set back from the main walkway of this gleaming comic book city, this really is Universal’ s version of the teacups at Magic Kingdom.
Electronic lockers are available in this area. They are free of charge for the first hour of use so you can stow loose items and bags. They are located to the right of the Storm Force Accelatron entry.
Storm Force Accelatron is a Universal Express Attraction so if you have bought a ticket you can use it here.
This ride no longer has a minimum height restriction but children under 48" must be accompanied by an adult to ride Storm Force Accelatron. As with many rides it is not recommended for expectant mothers, or those with a history of neck or back conditions, heart trouble, conditions aggravated by strobe effects or susceptible to motion sickness.
Each of the cars are designed to hold up to 4 adults. All the cars are on a spinning disc with four smaller circles that also spin. The smaller circles contain 3 cars each. This is a lovely attraction to ride at night because of the special lighting effects created by Professor Xavier’ s power generator, the young ones love it.
You take a spin in a Power Orb designed by Professor Xavier and help Storm (super heroine from the X-Men) defeat the evil Magneto. As you enter the geodesic dome topped with a 20-foot lightning rod, you will learn that Storm, mistress of the weather, needs your help. The specially designed ride vehicles can convert human energy into electrical forces through the power of " cyclospin. " By turning the wheel in the center of your power orb you can generate enough power to defeat Magneto, the faster you turn the centre wheel, the faster you spin!
When you leave the ride be sure to visit the Kingpin’ s Arcade, it’ s a great place to spend some time and even have the children’s faces painted.
Check your park guide for exact times and locations of all character Meet and Greets.
You will find plenty of characters at Marvel Super Hero Island. Storm and Wolverine from the X-Men and Captain America generally arrive on All Terrain Vehicles several times a day for photos and autographs. Spiderman can be found signing autographs in the back of the Spider-Man Store.
