The Netherlands
The Arrival of E.T. in Hollywood
Universal Studios Hollywood, Universal City, California

Producer & Director for Universal Studios Hollywood

Producer and Director for the live publicity stunt of E.T. the Extra Terrestrial arriving at his new home at Universal Studios Hollywood. The hook for the press was E.T. arriving via space ship flying over the San Fernando Valley. Once landed at his new home, E.T. interacted with children from the audience prior to the preview of the new ride. A gala celebrity party was held to celebrate the new ride hosted by Steven Spielberg.

I'm sorry... but this looks like the creepiest opening ceremony ever.

I hate to bump this thread, but I have a Layout of the entire attraction I found while watching an old travel channel documentary about Universal Studios Japan. I’ll link the documentary down below. I also decided to lay E.T.’s layout over the Revenge of the Mummy’s layout for fun. I’m not too sure how accurate it is, but I gave it my best shot. Lastly, keep in mind that every single E.T. Adventure had identical layouts, while the difference in each incarnation was in the set pieces and animatronic figures. Therefore, this layout also applies to Florida, and the former Hollywood incarnation.
