Opening Date - Early to Spring 2017
News & Rumors -
Nothing major to report, just yet.
Between this announcement and the F&F one, it seems as if they aren't trying to make too big of a deal about it yet (granted this was announced on TV) and they don't want people to even remember Twister and Disaster ever existed.Universal is so gracious, giving fans 4 days notice to experience Twister before it's gone for good. Oh well. Glad it's finally officially announced!
I get what you're saying, but Fallon is pretty much a walking yes-man surrounded by personal yes-men. As long as they are paying him, he'll do/promote whatever Comcast wants and make it look amazing and he generally stays out of the headlines outside of his duties as host of The Tonight Show.Not that I'm saying that it will (he seems a decent enough guy), but it's quite risky making an attraction about a current working celebrity. What if Fallon says or does something in the next few years that makes him a hated celebrity figure like Chris Brown, Shia LaBeouf etc. Social media can pretty much EXECUTE someone these days.
Could require quite a quick overlay if that were to happen...
I know who he is, pretty much only me and my wife at both screenings of Jurassic World seemed to laugh at his cameo.As I live in the UK this is one attraction I am not excited about. Untill I viewed the forums etc and viewed Jimmy Fallon on You Tube I had no idea who he was. For me I will probably try once but does not seem like a repeat attraction.
Yet another vendor (actually spelled Petersen)... BUT, the mention of Ogden, Utah is, um, timely... They are not the only other 727 vendor in that town but I won't go into that right now.The ride system is being constructed by a company named Peterson Inc.
Opened at Lagoon in Utah this past summer.
