Today was a day we have been looking forward to for quite a while.  Today we headed to Universal Studios.  There were so many cool things to do there we didn't know where to start but finally decided on the 4D movie based on the movie Shrek.  Rick and Carlie really enjoyed it, Megan however realised her eyes had got so bad she couldn't see the 3D stuff and also got the dodgy seat so couldn't experience the 4D things either, time to get her eyes checked. 
 
After Shrek we did the tour of the back lots which showed off the studios where they film shows like Cold Case and CSI.  A highlight was the drive down Wisteria Lane from Desperate Housewives.
 
Our favourite ride was the Mummy ride which was actually an indoor roller coaster.  They strap you in and send you very sedately down the tracks where fake hands try to grab you and mummies walk around.  Once you are feeling very safe and thinking this ride is not so bad the cart comes to a complete stop and a the Mummy guy screams "Your soul is mine!".  With this the cart takes off at a hundred miles per hour and you fly around in the darkness.  It was one of the fastest rides we've ever been on (twice!).
