Pokemon Go is still going strong. In fact some of the spookier third generation Pokemon were introduced recently as part of the game’s Halloween event, promising more exciting things to come.

If you’re one of the many that play Pokemon Go in the Orlando theme parks you may have noticed some… interesting pokestops and gyms. Earlier this month we showed you some of these interesting locations at Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World.

Universal Studios Florida has no shortage of these hilarious and bizarre locations. The stops at the popular park are not exactly the most descriptive, and have been based on some strange landmarks.

Here are 6 hilarious and bizarre Pokemon Go locations at Universal Studios Florida:

Wall Subway

Over in the New York area of the park is where you’ll find the subway. Well, kind of. It’s more of a wall decal. Which begs the question: why make this a pokestop? And you’ll notice a consistent lack of description with these stops, leaving some looking for a Wall Subway.


Just by giving you this sentence, I have described this stop more than the game creators. There’s no inaccurate information here, but that’s because there’s no information. If you’re looking for this stop just look for… you know… a tower.

Minion Xing Sign

Finally, a stop that at least has some Universal theming. Actually, this is a bit of theming that you might easily miss if you didn’t see it in the game. It blends in nicely with the Production Central area of the park, right in front of Despicable Me Minion Mayhem. You have to watch out for those pesky minions.

Lion, Dog, Cat, Mouse, Cheese

This humorous stop is made even better by the name. The food chain-themed decor inside Despicable Me Minion Mayhem is a very unique choice for a game location and “Lion, Dog, Cat, Mouse, Cheese” is always good for a chuckle when you see it on your screen.

Rip Ride Rockit Roller Coaster Wall Art

This one seems like an obvious choice. When picking locations for the game they typically chose things that stood out, like the highest point in the park. What’s interesting though is that they didn’t choose Rip Ride Rockit itself. Instead, according to the title, they chose the wall art on Rip Ride Rockit. Interesting choice.

Giant Cards

And we’ll finish up with a very non-descriptive location. Sure, giant playing cards are going to stand out, but couldn’t they have at least mentioned they’re part of the theming for Woody Woodpecker’s Nuthouse Coaster? I mean, they don’t even say playing cards. Just “cards.” It’s like they’re not even trying.

The Orlando theme parks are filled with these bizarre Pokemon Go locations. Be sure to check back for more interesting stops throughout Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando Resort.
