Even Blake Shelton is tired of screen based rides. (skip to 2:17)
I had a good time going to Universal for my first time last year, even without Hulk...but this really isn't something that is going to get me to come back, I don't think Fast and Furious will either. I spent 3 days there and I would have rather spent that last day somewhere else, Fun Spot, Disney, SeaWorld, anywhere really. I enjoyed my time there but Universal got old for me pretty quick with a lot of their offerings being basically the same. Until they change that, I'll plan my next Florida visit around Disney.
Hulk is enough to at least stop in for a day. IMO, it's the best coaster in Orlando.
Hulk in the back edge seats is debatable, but the middle of the first three rows is best ride in Orlando to me.
For the past two days TPR had the opportunity to be part of the media event for the grand opening of Race Through New York staring Jimmy Fallon. We also got to sample some awesome food from Volcano Bay and experience the attraction and its new virtual queue and entertainment. What a fun filled two days - on to the pictures!
Great report, thanks! We got down there to ride it during soft openings and thought it was great! Loved everything about it, especially the waiting area with the entertainment. Looking forward to doing it again soon.
Rode the Fallon ride today. I agree with most people here that it's a bit of a mess and is yet another 3d movie ride.
But what I really wanted to mention was the virtual queue experience. I got there around 4pm and used Express Pass to just walk right in but apparently they had run out of virtual queue times around 1pm today. So there was a constant huge crowd of people by the entrance who wanted to ride but couldn't and the team members were continuously yelling at the crowd that "This is for virtual queue and express pass only. There is no standby. Come back at 9pm if you want to try to ride." Some guests would wander away while others kept asking questions about why they were not allowed to wait.
It was quite the cluster.
