Re: My Trip to Universal Orlando

I went probably around that same time and it was great! Loved the ET ride - went on it twice.

I'm not big on the ones where you sit in some type of thing and get shaken around with a video playing. Seems to be more and more of that type.

I keep seeing discounts for Universal. Do you have some coupon or code or something to get a discount?

Re: My Trip to Universal Orlando

I went last summer. Do you have tickets to both parks there (Universal Studios & Islands of Adventure). Anyways, they closed the Back to the Future Ride shortly after I went apparently.

Re: My Trip to Universal Orlando

I've been there last November,... but that was my first visit over there. I'd been to Universal studio in LA maybe 10 years ago,.. so I can't really know what's been changed.
At that period the weather was not good, so I couldn't enjoy that much.

If you have free time at night, you can try to watch 'La Nouva',.kind of circus show in that area.

Re: My Trip to Universal Orlando

We have 2 day passes for both parks- we are down in orlando visiting my aunt-she told me on the phone that it has grown a lot since 92- when we went back then they had King Kong, earthquake, i remember that JAWS was closed when we went but i did a little research on the parks and king kong has been replaced by the mummy rollercoaster, BTTF has gone, JAWS is open, they have an entertainment complex, a new park and three hotels! phew! i visited www.universalstudiosorlando.com

It's a little dumpy and run-down from when you were there last. The rides are a lot the same and dull now, and they haven't like painted and stuff, it's like it needs a face-lift. CityWalk is totally different, though, it's a lot bigger with better bars and stores, but the parks themselves need some cosmetic work and some new rides. An article in the local rag says it's changed hands a lot and no one wants to update it. I think Back to the Future is closing or already has. Jaws is still dumb as ever. I went on it with a 4 year old who was laughing at the "shark." If you can't trick a 4 year old, you officially suck.

Re: My Trip to Universal Orlando

Oooh are you going on the Jaws ride That looks horrifying to me, I would officially crap myself if I ever went on that ride, there would be no stopping it & I don't even care how fake the shark looks I went on the studio tour of Universal Studios in LA & at one point they have a mini lake thing with the tiniest shark model that kind of attacks a model of man in the lake...omg I was so terrified & I was 18! *hangs head in shame*

Steven Spielberg has mentally scarred me for life with that film
