This ride needs some serious referbishment or complete replacement. You can tell it is very old and has not been very well kept up. It is indoors, however, and you are sitting down so if you need a ride to rest, take a nap, and sit a few in the AC, then try this one out.

This is dated and does need some work if it stays open. But that said, it does remain a nice pleasant ET ride and it would be a shame to lose it from the park.

A fantastic attraction to visit whilst at universal. Never gets too busy so queue times are minimal. You basically go on a slow moving unit shaped like bicycles through a designated fixed route. You are pretend cycling as you escape the police through the forest and then in the moon lit sky! I as an adult loved it but it's... More

Our tour guide mentioned that this was the oldest ride at Universal Orlando so I see the nostalgia. That said it's a little dull. Campy animatronics and somewhat jilted, consider this a ride for the younger kids and adults who's stomachs are settling after some of the more adventurous rides.

When we went to Universal Studios the first time, we skipped this attraction because it was E.T. - the movie was like a million years ago so we thought meh.

If you enjoyed the film ET, then you should enjoy this ride. When you enter you have to write your first name on a card and as the ride finishes there is a model of ET who says goodbye and your name. A nice finishing touch.

I love that so many young children know of E.T. without any advertisement or publicity of the movie since the early 1990s! The movie was such a beautiful classic family friendly movie about a "good alien" and the same holds true to this ride. I would say it's the equivalent to Disney's "Small World" ride complete with animatronics and hand-... More

This ride is VERY outdated {opened in 1990}, but it's fun to see how rides have advanced over the past few decades. This is a dark ride that takes you on a "flying bike"...it reminded me of Disney's Peter Pan ride, but over a forest, kind of like you were flying around Cabela's. I wasn't sure what to make of...

We were on holiday with our Daughter and Grandkids. We have been to Florida and to Universal Studios on previous occasions and had been impressed with the Universal Theme Parks, two of our Grandkids one who is now 13 years old and one who is now 19 years old have visited Universal once previously. But for our 7 year old... More
