One of the biggest draws for Universal Orlando Resort are the thrilling attractions, however, one Guest said they recently suffered a big of injury while boarding some of the rides.

“Not trying to be crass, I swear – but is this happening for anyone else? Between RRR, The Mummy and Gringotts I feel like I’ve been kicked square in the klackers,” the Guest said…Those little raised bits in the middle of the seats need to disappear!”

Certain rides have little raises in the seat at Universal Orlando Resort and this is apparently causing some discomfort and injuries for a few Guests.
