Ready to ride your bike and escape the scientists, while helping ET save his home? This is the ride for you. It's an older ride at Universal but it still is fun. It's not the most exciting but it has its place. Since you are not allowed to take pictures on the ride, the only picture I can share was... More

Let's be frank here, this ride could use some love. It desperately needs refurbishment, is a bit antiquated, and uses older technologies. However, it is still a timeless classic, and is super relaxing to go one. The queue is amazing (minus the weird smell, but it's a staple). We need to give this ride love, I would be so heartbroken...

This is one of those rides that they are possibly thinking of getting rid of it. And just like Jaws, Back To The Future and many more, they would never hear the last of it. Yes, it's dated and no, it isn't thrilling, but try and look at it from a child's point of view. You go out on a... More

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. I checked it out years later and it is a pretty cool little ride! Walking through the forest queue in the beginning sets the mood and then you are flying... More
