The Mouse For Less Tips

  • Usually when the crowd levels are slow to moderate, Woody Woodpecker’s Nuthouse Coaster and other attractions in the KidZone won’t open until 10:00 a.m. However, when the park is busy Woody Woodpecker’s Nuthouse Coaster will open when the rest of the park does.
  • Even though Woody Woodpecker’s Nuthouse Coaster is located in the KidZone, you do not have to be a child to ride it. Nor do you have to be accompanying a child. This coaster is great for those who just want a little bit of thrill.
  • During peak season this can be one of the busier attractions inside Woody Woodpecker’s KidZone. You can download the official Universal Orlando Resort app to find out real wait times.
