The thing that makes Movieland Studios so good is their complete disregard for intellectual property. Most of the rides use well-known names, such as Hollywood Action Tower (an Intamin 1st-generation Drop Tower following a similar Universal storyline), a Top Spin themed to Tomb Raider, and a Police Academy-themed simulator.

If you look past the "familiar" theming there are a couple of very fun scary rides. Magma 2 is like a backstage tour gone horribly wrong with an out-of-control, unlicensed driver. U-571 Submarine Simulator has to be experienced to be believed. You start on a u-shaped metal catwalk meant to simulate a submarine bay. All of a sudden you are under attack from some planes and are ordered to run along the catwalk as you are mildly splashed with water. Then you head down some slippery stairs and sit inside a submarine on what appear to be torpedoes. Then all hell breaks loose with sirens, blinking reds lights, and screaming as depth charges explode while everyone gets drenched. After U-571, Magma 2 if you want to contniue to put your life in the hands of the park ride KITT Super Jet, a high speed power boat ride. Horror House is a wonderful long walkthrough where 10-12 particpants deal with live actors and dark and uneven walkways.

If you prefer a more traditional drenching, Aquastudios is included in the admission price and offers some insane water slides.
Zorro Steak House and Show is the largest restaurant in the park. Other options in the park include pizza, pasta, hamburgers, hot dogs, and turkey legs. A word to the wise is to never order pizza from someplace themed to The Dukes of Hazzard.
