    Secret Life of Pets: Off the Leash (Opening 2020)

    I know this is VERY off topic but here goes. Does Universal Hollywood have hotels that off express pass if you stay on their property? Thinking about changing it it up and going west.

    Waits and Uptime Reports - Hagrid’s Magical Creature Motorbike Adventure

    Rode it Tuesday and fog effects were there. Great ride by the way. My son said it's the best ride he has ever ridden, I agree! Unrelated comment. I was with friends on Citywalk a few days ago. They all thought Universal was part of Disney! They honestly though Disney owned Universal. I...

    Waits and Uptime Reports - Hagrid’s Magical Creature Motorbike Adventure

    Hey guys. Do you think arriving at IOA by 7:30 (staying on Universal property) will be early enough to avoid massive wait times? Also do the crowds run as soon as they are let in. This happened to me a few years back when riding Gringotts. We arrived early and entered at 8:00 am but so many...

    Universal Orlando August 1 Press Conference

    In regard to LOTR, don't forget Amazon is creating a series based on LOTR. They bought the rights for $250 million dollars and have intentions on spending upwards of a billion on the production. This TV series will immediately make LOTR relevant again. I know it's a prequel to the original...

    General Discussion - Hagrid's Magical Creature Motorbike Adventure

    Hey Guys/Gals. I'm going to be in Orlando mid August. Portofino as always! Do you guys think the early admission will make a difference when riding this ride? How early should I get to the gate? I'm assuming there isn't express as of yet. I know it's over a month away but I'm stoked to ride...

    Universal Endless Summer Resort - Surfside and Dockside Inn & Suites

    Any possibility of a NJ style boardwalk wrapping around the Universal owned portion of the lake? That would be so cool. Games of chance, eateries, gift shops and go karts. Yes, go karts!

    Fast & Furious: Supercharged - General Discussion

    It's just so sad they turned Disaster! into a disaster. My least favorite ride in Universal. Let's start a GoFundMe page to get this scrapped.

    Is there some sort of video surveillance? I would assume so for these exact situations. Anyone know for sure?

    Universal's New Park/Site B Blue Sky Thread

    Safe to assume "Welcome to Marwen" will not be represented in the new park. Total disaster, what was Universal thinking? I am a compassionate guy so feel for the man it was based on but movie looks HORRIBLE.

    Speaking of ice.....If some of the southerns here want to see some snow and ice there's potential for a historic snow storm in the N Carolina. I'm a weather buff, I get excited by these things!

    Universal's New Park/Site B Blue Sky Thread

    I have tried just about every burger joint from the east coast to the west coast and I agree with your assessment. West coasters are border line cult members in regard to In-n-Out. I actually find Shake Shack to be the overall best but that's coming from a NYC guy who devoured many a burger at...

    Portofino Bay

    Just wait until you walk into the lobby and you smell the air!! The most amazing scent you can imagine. It's called Bright Sunshine I believe. I've been meaning to purchase it for years.

    Fast & Furious: Supercharged - General Discussion

    I rode this monstrosity a couple of weeks ago. The one negative aspect of the ride that really stood out (there were several) was the fact that I literally was staring at the ceiling. I was on the back of the bus, outer most left seat. I was blown away on how easily I saw the ceiling with...

    Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure Construction Discussion

    This question is "out of left field" but here goes. What do you guys think the odds are that this attraction will feature express pass? I know the other Potter attractions did not offer it when they first opened. Just wondering if they follow suit or not.
