    How does jumping on a Harry Potter Universal Studios ride right now sound to you? No entrance fee, no waiting around in a line or any of that!
    Universal Studios Hollywood and Orlando are currently closed through April 19, and Universal Studios Japan and Singapore are partially opened with quite a few shows and attractions put on hold due to the coronavirus outbreak. So, until you make it back to any of the parks, the internet is probably the next best thing - and you can have a field day with it. We encourage you to put on your best merch, whip out the popcorn and really get in the mood. Once you’ve settled on the couch, get ready to be transported to Universal Studios- we’ve put together a list of the best virtual rides and online games for you:

    In case you missed it - Super Nintendo World is also set to open in Universal Studios Japan this summer and also in Universal Studios Singapore in the near future! What is Super Nintendo World though?
    “Think of Super Nintendo World as a life-size, living video game where you become one of the characters. You’re not just playing the game; you’re living the game, you’re living the adventure,” said Thierry Coup, the Senior Vice President, Chief Creative Officer, Universal Creative, in the global kick-off presentation event held on 14 January 2020.
    Universal Studios Japan also dropped the “We Are Born to Play” music video, which is a collaboration between Galantis and Charli XCX. It showcases the activities based on the real and interactive experiences available at Super Nintendo World like hitting the ‘?’ Blocks to gather coins.
