Terminator 2®: 3D is closing and will celebrate its final performance on December 31st


http://blog.pe.com/theme-parks/2012/11/06/universal-studios-terminator-2-3d-will-close-dec-31/

Terminator 2: 3-D” is set in 2029, but it won’t make it to 2013 at Universal Studios Hollywood.

After months if not years of speculation, “T2” is closing at Universal Studios Hollywood. The final performance will be Dec. 31, according to Universal’s website.

The 12-minute feature debuted in 1996. It was directed by James Cameron and reunited Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton and Edward Furlong from the popular action films.

“T2″ occupies prime real estate in the park. It’s on the upper deck near the entrance and next to the park’s events center.

Rumors abound about what will replace. “T2″ Some say it will be Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem, a ride at Universal Studios Florida.

“T2″ is also at Orlando, but it apparently hasn’t been placed on a hit list.

As far as theme park show go Terminator was pretty solid, but definitely starting to show its age. Great to see they're replacing it.

I'm hoping for a Blues Brothers dark ride. Sort of Country Bears meets Splash Mountain kind of thing.

I've got to say that T2-3D was always my favorite 3D4D attraction at any park. I've never even seen the original movie, but the whole experience is so well done that I love it. It was even worth sitting through in Japanese last month!

My last few visits, I really was tired of it. I was impressed the first few times I saw it, but it was getting old and I'm not upset to see it go.

Universal is really pushing large expansion in their parks right now. At first I felt like it was more focused on Florida, but now it seems like there is always something going on in Hollywood too. I love that the Orlando and SoCal Disney/Universal rivalries seem to be heating up. It's much more obvious in Florida (where is makes more sense) but I find it hard to argue that it's not happening in Southern California now, as well.

With the removal of Backdraft, T2 became the oldest attraction in the park. As cool and unique as it was, it will be nice to see something new in its place.

I think WaterWorld is the oldest. That opened in 1996. T2 opened 1999.
