Do you miss the Jaws ride?

Yesterday, January 2nd, was the 6th anniversary of the closure of the Jaws attraction at Universal Studios Florida. I’ll admit, I wasn’t the biggest fan of the attraction and I’m very happy with what they replaced it with. Sure, Jaws had that nostalgia of being an opening day attraction, but it was closed a lot […]

The Whos of Whoville: Then and Now

The Whos of Whoville are kind of like the scareactors of Grinchmas. They’re seasonal characters that have cool makeup, wear cool clothes, and wander the streets of Seuss Landing (in between shows) interacting with guests and getting into mischief. The first video is from 2009. You can really see the evolution of their wardrobe compared […]

Something I miss at Universal this year…

Universal has done a phenomenal job this year stepping up their holiday offerings game! New parade, everything is new in the Wizarding World as far as the holidays go, and of course Grinchmas and Mannheim Steamroller are back too! But something is glaringly missing for me this year. The parade was once called the Macy’s […]

Harry Potter Christmas Wonderment!

Usually the end of HHN bums me out for months. I sink into a dark hole of Sadistic Wonderment withdrawal that consumes me until after Mardi Gras comes along. Well, this year was a little different.

Christmas arrives in Hogsmeade!

Since Halloween was yesterday, it’s ok to start talking about the Christmas season now…right? Technically there’s still two more nights of Halloween Horror Nights, but Universal has already fully dressed Seuss Landing and decorations have started popping up in Hogsmeade at Islands of Adventure! This will be the first year they will do any sort […]

You can record 10, 20, or 30 second videos with them. They will connect to your mobile device via Bluetooth, and you can either send the videos directly to […]

Terminator Closed Forever

It was announced about a month ago that Terminator 2 3D would be closing forever. Replacing it would be a live action show based off of a “high-energy Universal franchise”. They have yet to announce what the replacement will actually be, but obviously rumors are swirling!    The last day of operation for Terminator was […]

Citywalk Update

Walking through Citywalk yesterday, I realized there was a lot going on but a lot going on quietly. Hurricane Irma claimed most of the Toothsome banner and Bubba Gump signage you see when you first enter Citywalk. Both of them are still missing with the Toothsome banner being removed completely. Cinnabon has also been closed […]
