Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure
Transcript of Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure
By: Jenna Gould
To start off, one of the things that changed is the attractions. The newest ride is "Harry Potter and the Escape for Gringotts". The ride is in the Gringotts bank and is a 3D thrill ride in the Islands of Adventure park. During Halloween Universal Studios holds "Halloween Horror Nights". They now "feature 8 haunting mazes, 6 scare zones, and 2 live shows." Also, Universal Studios opened a new "Nighttime Water Show" it "celebrates 100 years of film making," MacDonald says it, "replays more than 200 clips from the movie studios' vault on a watery canvas on the theme parks lagoon." There has been a lot of interesting new attractions and surely more to come.
More Advanced Technology
Next, is the more advanced technology. An example is the new express pass. "Unlimited ride access at both parks to skip the regular lines at most rides and attractions again and again." And, instead of 3D there are 4D effects on rides and shows. 4D is when things seem as though they are right beside a person (like 3D) and they can feel effects such as wind and water. This is in the rides Minion Mayhem and Shrek 4D. To get into the parks they will take one's picture at one of the "spectacular on-site hotels" and put it on a card with a bar code. The guest swipes their card and the staff looks at the picture to make sure it is the right person. So, without this technology, the parks wouldn't run as smoothly.
Lastly, the parks have expanded. For example, there wasn't always on-site hotels, so to put those in, they had to expand their property. There are 5 hotels "within walking distance" to the parks. Also, a train was put in to go from one park to the other. It is the Hogwarts Express that comes directly off platform 9 3/4. And, a guest can enter the small arena that is purely dedicated to the "celebration of art, technology and music that is the Blue Man Group at Universal Orlando Resort." So, thanks to the expansions, guests have more to do and more room to do it.
"Vacation like you mean it", at Orlando's Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure.
