World Expo

Greater Orlando

The main attraction here is Men in Black Alien Attack (Express Pass), a 3D interactive video game that is a lot of fun but not at all scary. Your car swings and spins through a danger-laden downtown Manhattan, with all kinds of silly-looking aliens all over the place, and you aim your lasers and shoot away to rack up points. Oddly, Universal is adamant that you put all bags in the complimentary locker before boarding.
