At Universal Studios Florida do people with wheelchairs get to go up the exit ramps?

Nope... they do what they love to call "Main stream access" cause they're ADA accessible, for all but 2 rides... Mummy and Back to the Future. Those, you need to ask the cast member at the entrance of the ride for assistance.
Others? Either you deal with the steep ramps and such in the waiting lines, get universal express (which do run out fast), buy a Universal Express Gold, as strangely... everything is a lot easier if you pay money! You don't need to deal with steep ramps for the most part, they'll even let you use that convenient elevator at Hulk! If you want, you can book a room at one of their 3 resorts and they'll let you on as much as you want on the rides, all by the easy Universal Express entrance.
When you arrive at the park, go to Guest Services and they'll give a booklet for that park.

At the newer park next door -- IOA -- and at the newer USF attractions (like Mummy) they have made sure that the actual queue is wide enough to roll a wheelchair along.
There is an accessibility guide booklet -- and I'm pretty sure that it's downloadable online at the official UniversalOrlando.com site -- that explains the procedures.

Its wide enough for wheelchair... but unless you have a motorised wheelchair, the ramps on most rides are too steep. At least when Disney say a line is accessible, its mostly all flat or small, very shallow ramps.
