    In before anyone says this was the best show in Central Florida and will sorely be missed.

    This is the best stunt show in CF, and I will miss it dearly. ;)

    The fact that it isn't being directly addressed RN on the Blog, speaks volumes to the quality of the attraction.

    This show painfully brings back memories of my ex, who was one of the stunt performers. Good riddance!!

    He looks like Jim Croce.

    Seeing a bit from the show where a guy goes "HIT ME BABY ONE MORE TIME" makes me certain nothing of value was lost here, even if I haven't seen the show in years. I think I wanted to a few trips ago, but the theater was down for...something.

    Happy that Mystic Fountain is staying for now, livid that this is closing with no immediate replacement plans.

    Eh, it's not your fault!

    Since you (and yinz) have been around longer than I, I gotta know: was this show ever good?

    My family would take our yearly Christmas card photo in front of it.

    Not really. It was always too cheesy. To "fix" it during the last re-tooling, they just cut it down shorter, so less painful to sit through.

    The stunt work was okay, it was just too silly.

    I miss the Wild Wild Wild West Stunt Show. That was a work of art. Silly too, but the serious moments had more weight to them... Plus, there was blood effects. You just don't see that anymore in theme parks lol.

    The show sucked. Terribly.

    Now the question is-

    1) Will they create a new show?
    2) Will they tear down the building and create a new attraction?
    or
    3) Will they leave the area dead for 98% of the time, like toon lagoon theater?

    This show sucks but I can’t celebrate a closing with no immediate replacement plan, especially when it came about because management doesn’t know wtf they’re doing

    Yeah, I'm with Jungle Skip. Cutting park attractions because management made bad decisions elsewhere is a poor reflection on the Orlando Universal executives. There's little enough entertainment at IOA as it is. If a show is poor,has poor reception from the public, that's a reflection on management, and it behooves them to replace it with a better entertainment attraction. Cutting only accentuates the management shortcomings. I'm giving Universal a really big black eye if they continue with this little league move. Five thumbs down, and an angry fist, if they don't replace it...within the year...:thumbsdown::thumbsdown::thumbsdown::thumbsdown::thumbsdown: :fist:

    New Poster here. I just wanted to say why is everyone coming so negative about this whole situation. Like shouldn’t be exciting that they are finally taking a “horrible” show out of the lineup. If they Universal is asking for cost cutting measures then management has to comply.
