Universal Studios Update: Supercharged Construction (Part 2)


Welcome to the second part of our newest Universal Studios Florida photo-report. As usual, we encourage you to check out PART 1 of this update before proceeding.
In the previous part, we walked around the entrance of the park, Production Central, and the New York City backlot. While we have already noticed quite a few changes, there's more that we have to check out, including San Francisco (where the new Fast & Furious attraction will soon open). Join us as we conclude our tour of this park.

The Secret Life of Pets float blends very nicely with the New York facades:

The London waterfront:

The new showbuilding for Fast & Furious: Supercharged is not themed sadly:

The guy with the hat wasn't moving:

The sign of Fear Factor LIVE seems to have been refurbished:

The lagoon:

The new showbuilding of Fast & Furious looks even more jarring from the other side of the lagoon:

Let's briefly stop by to visit an old friend:

The little green alien is back (but he doesn't move, sadly):

The E.T. Adventure recently reopened after a short refurbishment. Most of the special effects are now working again, but it is obvious that the ride needs a much more substantial refurbishment:

The plain showbuilding has been repainted:

  1. So completely laughable that the theming is what it is. Mostly just giant warehouse-type buildings. Ask a Universal kool-aid drinker their thoughts on this and they'll tell you how fast the parks are adding new rides (lots of "magical" screens). Aside from the Harry Potter lands, which are absolutely incredible, both of the parks' theming and cohesiveness stink. No doubt that they definitely have boring screen-based rides down. Let's not even get into their over priced, over promised, and under delivered "third park" (Volcano Bay). Great idea with terrible execution. Universal is nothing more than a second-tier day trip, and that is only because of the Potter lands. If it wasn't for that, this place would have shut down years ago.

  3. I agree. Jimmy Fallon ride is a joke and King Kong isn't impressive at all. Wheres the wow factor. Did Universal out do itself with the first Potter? Bummer

  4. I disagree. Maybe the cohesiveness isn't Disney, but they are amazing with everything they are doing, and changing. Imo I quite like Kong and Jimmy Fallon

  5. I believe Disney is moving to screen based rides as well. Pandora's main attraction, Millenium falcon,toy story mania, star tours, even POTC in Shanghai are all mostly screen based. It's just a hot ticket right now.

  6. It's laughable reading someone stating that both IOA and Universal parks theming stink. What is it that you wanted with the fast & the furious ride with the space they had to work with? Are you stating Harry Potter is the only thing worth going to? Hell no, Jurassic Park, Skull Island, Dr. Sues, Marvel, Lost Continent, The Simpson, Transformers, The Mummy. All of those are theme beautifully. Also do you really think Volcano Bay is over priced? How cheap are you? Everything they showed us from the beginning is there so how can it be under delivered?
