Everyone has a favorite theme park smell. An aroma that if it sneaks in your nostrils when you’re away from the parks, it instantly transports you right back to that magical place. An accent so sweet, that you seek it out when you’re on property. Can you pick four of […]
On this day: February 28th
This day in theme parks, February 28th: Uni Social 2011 Don’t worry – we paint the Hulk by night so you can ride by day. But that means it’s going to take a few months to finish. — Universal Orlando Resort (@UniversalORL) February 28, 2011 2012 Check out our […]
Mikey’s Memes and Photoshops
Haters Will Say It’s Photoshopped I’ve always loved the art of altering a photo. Sometimes the change is so ridiculous that you know it was edited in Photoshop. And other times you do a double take and question if that’s how the image has always looked. During the pandemic, I […]
4 day streak!

4 minutes and 20 seconds with…
The parks are great for going on things, but it is also nice to just go and not go on anything. Wait. What? You read that correctly. Sometimes (pretty much always in this current climate), when I go to Universal, I just walk around and take photos or […]
