Universal Studios Update: Fallon, Fast & Furious, and More


Welcome to our newest photo-report, Orlando Theme Park News Readers!
This afternoon we will take you back to one of our favorite theme parks to check on the progress that has been done since our last visit. As you'll see, Universal Studios Florida is really busy building multiple new attractions and experiences (Race Through New York, Fast & Furious: Supercharged, and the replacement of Roboasis), and all of them are being built from the ground up. Take a look:


Welcome to Universal Studios:

  1. Is the F&F ride going to be a roller coaster

  2. Anonymous: No, it is going to be a variation of the Fast&Furious Supercharged attraction that is part of the backlot tour in Universal Hollywood. In that version the tram goes through a large 3D video tunnel where you see the cars from F&F racing around you.

  3. I love this park but they rely just a bit too much on screens. And honestly I am fine with projections and screens but they need to mix in some other elements like with WWHP. I understand its cost effective to do this for the producer but it does not maximize the utility of the consumer experience. But we all know we will consume their product no matter what it is, just is a tad annoying

  4. "But we all know we will consume their product no matter what it is, just is a tad annoying."

    Actually, Universal's over-reliance on screens is one reason why I haven't visited their parks in over 15 years. No matter how well they are synced, screen-based motion simulator always leave me feeling nauseated.

    They seems to be holding their own without me (or people like me), so I'm not anticipating anything to change. For the record, I'm okay with that. I don't expect every business to cater to my needs.

  6. I'm a rabid Disney fan, but I do love the newer Universal rides, they aren't as nausea inducing as some of the older ones, Simpsons, I'm staring at you. I just wish they could better manage their lines better, because after waiting over 2 hours for the Gringots ride and it lasting for what felt like 30 seconds, I definitely felt ripped off.

  7. "Ride the Movies" is there slogan. LOL. Go to Sea World instead, MAKO is not a simulator.

  8. I really wish they would do a facade of Springfield at USF like they did at USH.

    It hasn't been for quite some time. But that's cool, don't do your homework.

  10. Lol blindly back Universal like always. I love it when people get told the truth that Universal keeps making the same 3D sim rides and the fanboys get all defensive and try to bash them.

  11. Thanks for the update!

  12. The thing is that these screens allow the actors to reprise their characters, so they're brought to life again in a way that any AA can equal today. I think that's one of it's success' keys
