    General Discussion - Jurassic World: The Ride

    Rode the ride a couple of times yesterday and hadn't kept up with this thread about no I Rex so I was very surprised to come around the corner and hearing the I Rex noises coming from... nothing. Not a great look and I think I'd rather them mute the noises than keep it coming from nowhere, at...

    Universal's Epic Universe News & General Discussion

    It is worth noting that these systems aren't racist by design but by implementation and that's a big difference. There's nothing that stops this tech from getting better when more examples of POC are factored into testing and learning (assuming that the majority of algorithms use some machine...

    Fast & Furious: Supercharged - General Discussion

    It's like this weird hybrid of LA and SF where they have the SF skyline with Salesforce Tower and the Transamerica Pyramid but then everything else looks like LA :shrug: it's the bare minimum of effort they had to put in to say it's in SF

    Hollywood Rip, Ride, Rockit

    IANAL but from my understanding it'd still be a public performance of the songs and would require licensing as such even if the videos wouldn't be sold

    After 4pm Express Pass

    Maybe that's just referring to the perk that Premiere Passholders get? After all free is an 100% discount :shrug:

    HHN 29: When are You Going?

    10/4 and 10/6! I've been wanting to do HHN for four or five years now but school or work has always kept me from attending but this year I'll be going (both to Orlando and Hollywood - when it rains it pours I guess!) I'll be doing a RIP tour on the 4th which should be a good way to spoil the...

    Halloween Horror Nights 29 General Discussion

    I'd kill for a Bioshock house! The IP must not be popular enough to justify the money to get it because it seems like a great property to turn into a house. Tons of splicers and a couple of Big Daddies/Little Sisters at the bottom of the ocean sounds like a fun house to me!

    Picture of the Day - Orlando

    I love this shot! I've always wanted to do something similar in MSHI with small superhero action figures or something like this but never got around to it. Maybe I will my next trip!

    Universal's New Park/Site B Blue Sky Thread

    Looks like Universal did distribution for Uprising but the first was done by WB. So I'm not entirely sure how that all works, especially considering that it was Legendary that produced it. But yes please :eat: give me a Del Toro produced land!

    Universal's New Park/Site B Blue Sky Thread

    I'm curious, have you seen the Sci-Fi area from Universal Singapore? I think that's the kind of thing you're thinking of. It seems to me like Universal is straying away from generic "Egypt" or "Sci-Fi" lands and toward areas like DA or Springfield, immersive lands based on a single IP. I don't...

    Universal's Camera Equipment Policy

    From my experience, it seems like it's pretty dependent on the day and the TMs you walk past. I've brought a full sized tripod, small bendy tripod and 2 or 3 reasonably large lenses along with my DSLR into the park before. Now those probably aren't as professional looking as your setup but you...

    Universal Orlando Resort Expansion News (Part 2)

    Specifically, it's the edge cases for self driving car tech that's difficult. I'm confident in saying that lines on a major highway like I-4 would never get faded enough to run into issues, nor would the lines on major tourist roads. Also in FL you'd never have to deal with snow covering lanes...

    Fast & Furious: Supercharged - General Discussion

    Am I the only one who didn't hate the preshows? I mean sure, having a Ludacris look alike instead of the TVs would've been better but I didn't think it was that bad or forced, maybe I just got lucky with the cast member I had. As far as changes go, I'd love to see them give us a reason to stay...

    Future of Revenge of the Mummy

    I'm surprised USF's doesn't. I just rode Hollywood's Mummy a month or two ago and really liked the ankle ticklers during that scene. It added way more to the scene than I thought it would. Is there a reason why USF's doesn't have it or was it just overlooked or something?

    Jurassic Park Expansion/New Coaster

    Stealth @ Thorpe Park hits 80 mph and has a 200ft top hat while iSpeed @ Mirabilandia has a 180ft top hat @ 68 mph. From what we've heard, it looks like this ride will be a little faster than Taron, say 75mph which means that the top hat can be up to around 190ft. But that's just my personal...

    Universal's New Park/Site B Blue Sky Thread

    Yep, I think we all agree with you and it seems like Universal is listening and moving away from screenz for the next few rides. But frustration over screenz is a topic for another thread. I'm curious what you think will replace screens and glasses going forward. At the moment or even in the...

    How much for the Renewal rates on annual passes ?

    The Universal website is your friend :) Universal Orlando Looks like Seasonal is 208 + tax for 2 park Florida resident and 287 + tax for 3 park FL resident. Not sure what you mean by premium, maybe Premier? Regardless, you can find it at that link!

    Universal's New Park/Site B Blue Sky Thread

    Yes, yes and yes! I grew up right in the middle of Pokemon fever and even though I'm technically an adult now, I still play both the new and old games pretty religiously. There's a pretty healthy e-sports community forming around the competitive side of the game and I've been shocked by how many...

    Cedar Point 2013

    I hope CP gets something new, It's been far too long since we got a new coaster.
