Is the F&F ride going to be a roller coaster
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.
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
"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.
Complaints about Universal's use of screens. How original.
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.
"Ride the Movies" is there slogan. LOL. Go to Sea World instead, MAKO is not a simulator.
I really wish they would do a facade of Springfield at USF like they did at USH.
"'Ride the Movies' is there slogan."
It hasn't been for quite some time. But that's cool, don't do your homework.
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.
Thanks for the update!
People ain't got nothing better to do than troll the internet... Oh, wait.
