    I think this contradicts your whole argument of "timeless" and classic attractions. You really prefer a generic Six Flags roller coaster to the Mummy? :bang::confused:

    I think he was trying to clarify that he doesn't think all rides at Universal aren't awful, except for Rockit.

    Indeed. I think you should read more carefully, or I should write more clearly.

    Either way. I promise you that you will not find someone who loathes rockit more than I do.

    Good stuff right there. I remember that dinosaur one. That girl is from the show Grounded for Life.

    I also remember 2 commercials pretty vividly. One had Spider-Man and Doc Oc fighting on the wing of a plane with a kid flying to Orlando. The other was someone looking for his missing dinosaur in the park. Classics.

    Here's just one for now, but if anyone misses these days, throw your hands up.

    Man, Mat Hoffman's Stunt Show, that didn't last long at all and now that stage is still vacant :bang:. I still remember Trike Encounter like it was yesterday.

    It was. The greatest area in Universal of all-time.

    I still don't mind Shrek 4D but it really should go for something better soon.

    Jimmy Neutron can go!But it is pretty cool for kids as it goes through all the good Nick shows.
    Actually, most kids who ride it nowadays won't recognize any of the characters except Spongebob. If you think about it, Jimmy Neutron is good nostalgic trip for a lot of us who are in the teen age.

    My family watched the Maff Hoffman stunt show back in 2004 and, thankfully, took several pictures. Enjoy :)

    Looks like a cool show. They should really consider using that theatre in the future.

    I know... it's really strange to see such a big theater go unused. I've been going to Universal annually since 2002 and have never once been in it.

    Was that done in one of the Soundstages? I know they film TNA in one and use the old Hercules and Xena one for HHN storage.
