There are so many oddly satisfying experiences around Universal Orlando Resort that simply go unnoticed to the average guest. But for Passholders, it’s the oddly satisfying experiences that make their visit that much more satisfying.

Check out this incredible list of 10 of our favorite most oddly satisfying things at Universal Orlando Resort that will leave you saying, “This is so me.”

 

1. Watching People Get Soaked at Jurassic Park River Adventure

When you happen to pass by the splash zone next to the Jurassic Park River Adventure, you can’t help but notice the individual(s) standing curiously close to the fence and think “this is going to be good.” Then the feeling of immediate scrambling to get a better view of the tidal wave of water showering the unexpected guests gives that unique oddly satisfying sense of enjoyment.

TIP: If you’re warm, go ahead and get close to the splash zone. If you spot someone else, feel free to give them a friendly heads up of what’s to come.

We all like to think that we are Agent K when it comes to blasting aliens on the MEN IN BLACK Alien Attack ride, but there is something more rewarding at the moment you… *looks around and whispers* hit the targets worth bonus points.

An even better feeling? Finishing the ride and looking around at your fellow galaxy defenders and seeing them in awe of your out of this world score!

How do you spot a Passholder at Halloween Horror Nights?

Look for the people standing in the middle of the thick scare zone fog taking deep breaths while letting out a long satisfying “ahhhhhhhh.” For the average guest, it’s just fog. For Passholders, that fog unlocks memories of the incredible scares and excitement from past Halloween Horror Night experiences.How can something so terrifying smell so good?

TIP: Slowly approach a scare zone, step off to the side and get that long desirable fog whiff in, but don’t let your guard down for too long…there’s always a scareactor lurking around the corner.

 

5. Watching Halloween Horror Nights Scareactors Scare the Living Daylights Out of People

Do yourself a favor next Halloween Horror Nights: Find a nice location with a view of a scare zone, sit back, relax and witness some good ole Halloween Horror Nights scareactors do work on unsuspecting guests.

TIP: But don’t let your guard down too much, you could be next!

OR:

TIP: Anywhere near a Halloween Horror Nights scare zone works great, but the very best area is near Hollywood where you can see the full scare play out. It’s like watching something from a wildlife documentary as you nudge your friends: “Oh boy, they’re in for it.”
