    "Shrek 4-D opened in 2003, replacing the Rugrats Magic Adventure 3-D attraction, and has several clones located in Universal Parks around the world – including Universal Orlando. As of now, this closure is set for Hollywood’s version only." ~ Shrek 4-D at Universal Studios Hollywood set to close with possible replacement Kung Fu Panda – Inside Universal

    FYI: The Rugrats Magic Adventure was not a 3-D attraction. It was a live stage show, no 3D glasses were required to be worn to watch the show. :ears:

    Due to the recent (unofficial) announcement of Shrek 4D closing at USH, I put together this little video. Enjoy.

    I worked Rugrats in that theater and its sad with the lack of video available out there. However, because of the black light nature of the attraction (and my job to keep the cameras off) there is not much out there beyond post show photographs.

    Yup.

    Shame as that outdoor queue was so beautiful.

    I'm guessing the WWoHP side stays as is, if not themed more.

    It is really strange that they spent the money on redoing the outdoor queue for Shrek just to get rid of it so soon after. But I'm totally cool with this change. It'll look great once it's done.

    I'm actually digging this new idea. I am a little disappointed we won't be getting a new ride for '18, but this will be a great change for the asthetic of the park. I love the idea of making this a flex space while keeping the Art Deco theming.

    You can still see portions of the queue in the art work. It looks like that only areas that will change is the area closest to Universal Plaza and the area closest to the building.

    That's always been one of my favorite pre shows. I've seen it many many times, but it still makes me laugh & smile. :):lol:

    Did anyone get an AP "Bonus Day" for Shrek? I remember Inside Universal posting an image of the email invite on facebook awhile back, but I never got one. I only got the Bonus Day for the new Dreamworks meet-n-greet. When I inquired with the AP people, the link they gave me was the same bonus day link used for the new meet-n-greet (which of course I had already used). And whats funny is, the description up top now mentions Shrek closing.

    Its odd they wouldn't unblock August 12th & 13th for passholders to be able to say goodbye to Shrek 4D one last time during its final two days of operation...

    Just saw Shrek for my final time to day. Glad to see it's finally ogre. I was so sick of seeing that attraction, it made me feel green.

    You know what's sad? Of all of the years we've had that Donkey meet and greet, the waffle stand he has been in was never real. I think USH was missing out on a big opportunity to make it a real waffle stand. I would be down to buy a waffle.
