The Universal Studio Hollywood is definitely a lot more worthy than the Disneyland. The special effects are a lot better.
The first one we went for was the Jurassic Park Ride. It was awesome. The big boat can accommodate forty people and it does look real. Quite a few dinosaurs here and there and the final drop was awesome. Everybody got really wet in the end. My whole head was totally wet. My T-shirt was partially soaked. But it was fun.
The next ride was the E.T. Ride. We managed to get the front seat. Even before getting into the ride, the decoration (dark, a lot of tall trees) is great. We were virtually “hovering” in the air. Cars crashing in from our sides. Police cars below us.
And then we moved onto Cinemagic. Actually, there were three sections. The first session talked about the show “Back to Future”. Talk about how they filmed the scene inside the car (well, not exactly a car but only a “partial” car), how they simulated the “flying scene” with a small expensive computer operated car. The second section talked about how they made a horror movie and the last one was about the sound effect. All of them are truly entertaining.
Next, that was the Backdraft. It wasn’t a ride at all. We all stood in front of a studio and they exploded everything in front of us! The heat was strong and it was just like a real life movie.
And the Waterworld show. Just awesome. They put a play with all the original settings. Towards the last part, a plane came crushing down just in front of the audience. Not to forget to mention about the Back to Future Ride. It is the best simulation so far.
I can just go on forever but I am just too drunk with the Long Island Ice Tea. Ah, we did have a BBQ dinner tonight.
