Universal Studios Update: Fast & Furious Continues to Take Shape

Universal Studios Florida has opened plenty of new attractions in the past few years. In recent months, though, it seemed like there was very little happening in the park, as the only construction project was the new Fast & Furious: Supercharged attraction (Universal is spoiling us with all these new additions...). That said, Terminator 2: 3D permanently closed yesterday evening, and Woody Woodpecker's KidZone is expected to close later this year. There's so much to look forward to!


This afternoon we will take a look around Universal Studios Florida to see what's new.

The "P" in the word "Paradise" appears to have some issues, as the light bulbs are all off:

The old Disaster! entrance is still behind tarps:

  1. When will the Dora, Boots, Diego, and Baby Jaguar characters be removed from Universal Studios Florida and from the parade?, because almost nobody knows who this uneducated cartoon character is anymore, her float deserves to be replaced by one with characters from the DreamWorks film, Trolls(why?: one, there's music and dancing like the other units, and two, Universal brought the entire DreamWorks Animation library last year). The characters from the Nick Jr show would be replaced by ANOTHER Nickelodeon property, The Loud House, both for character meets and as a fifth float in the Superstar parade(why?: one, like SpongeBob, Loud House is a Nicktoon, two, music and dancing, three, one of the top 2 shows on Nickelodeon, and four, other Nick characters would be in the opening float, including the Ninja Turtles and the puppies from PAW Patrol.). fingers crossed if this would happen.

  2. Any Guess on what is taking over T2? I thinking "Dark Universe", which is about Universals classic monsters. Right next to Movie make up show and shares exit and gift shop.
