So, I'm going to Universal Hollywood very soon. It will be my first time in a couple years, so I must ask if there have been any significant changes to which I would need to change my strategy for going through the rides. For note, last time I went, Walking Dead was almost open.
Keep on thrilling, TPR! :)

If you purchased your ticket online, you are eligible for 30 min early entry to knock out the Potter rides. The lower lot and Despicable Me do not open until 1hr after the park opens. Jurassic World is not open yet.

Despicable Me opens up with the lower lot now? Who knew. I usually used the upper lot time to knock out Simpsons and Despicable Me, so I'll probably hit the Studio Tour after early entry.
Keep on thrilling, TPR! :)

Universal Studios Hollywood has announced that Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and BD Wong will reprise their roles from the Jurassic World films in the new Jurassic World—The Ride!



Stars of the JURASSIC WORLD films Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and BD Wong reprise their roles as Owen Grady, Claire Dearing and Dr. Henry Wu, bringing their characters from the silver screen to Universal Studios Hollywood’s much anticipated mega attraction, “Jurassic World—The Ride,” opening this summer.

This marks the first time the cast will appear as their iconic characters outside of the JURASSIC WORLD films for a theme park attraction. As part of original content created exclusively for the new ride, Owen, Claire and Dr. Wu will shed light on their interactions with the dinosaurs along with facts and information about the imposing prehistoric creatures that first roamed the earth more than 65 million years ago.

This spectacular new ride will feature an original storyline that will take guests on a breathtaking excursion through the theme park as depicted in Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s film, JURASSIC WORLD. It will soar to new heights with the addition of iconic dinosaurs from the movie, including the colossal Indominus rex and the magnificent aquatic Mosasaurus in her natural habitat.

For the first time, JURASSIC WORLD fans will have the chance to see this impressive creature and become immersed within her massive Aquarium Observatory. Appearing to span over 60 feet in length and tipping the scales at over 30K pounds through stunning state-of-the-art visual effects, the Mosasaurus is a sight to behold as she moves just inches away from guests throughout her glass enclosure filled with the equivalent of 3.5 million gallons of water.

Universal Creative collaborated with Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) to bring the Mosasaurus to life and to capture the realism of her underwater environment using a combination of spectacular visual effects and cutting-edge technologies, including the use of motion parallax, a technique that shifts the guest’s perspective of the Mosasaurus as she moves throughout the tank.

The team also employed a series of lighting enhancements allowing the aquarium to intuitively shift from day to night, as well as visual changes to the environment during inclement weather, thus creating a variety of visual scenarios guests can experience based on when they experience the ride.

“Jurassic World—The Ride” captures the essence of the blockbuster movie and comes to life in collaboration with the award-winning and inspired minds at Universal Creative, the Academy Award®-winning special-effects visionaries at Industrial Light & Magic, a division of Lucasfilm, Ltd., Universal Pictures and acclaimed filmmakers Stev en Spielberg, Colin Trevorrow and Frank Marshall.

When “Jurassic World—The Ride” opens this summer, guests will be welcomed to a dramatically reimagined space reflective of the hit films. A fresh entry statement, stonework landscaping, and a contemporary redesign of the iconic JURASSIC WORLD gates, illuminated with billowing flames, will create the framework for the all new aesthetics.

Once guests pass through the queue, they will board specially designed rafts that will navigate the lush environs of dense vegetation and traverse new areas besieged with towering dinosaurs meandering at just an arm’s length away. Encounters with such docile creatures as the Stegosaurus and Parasaurolophus will quickly turn awry as predatory Velociraptors and Dilophosaurus begin to wreak havoc, turning guests from spectators to prey. When the Tyrannosaurus rex begins to battle one of the attraction’s new ferocious dinosaurs, the rafts will spill down a treacherous 84-foot waterfall as the sole means of escape.

Located adjacent to the ride will be a new elaborately themed “Raptor Encounter” where Blue, the beloved Velociraptor from the JURASSIC WORLD franchise, will engage guests in daring face-to-face encounters.

In addition, a new interactive “Dino Play” area will incorporate educational components within an inspired space where children of all ages can explore and excavate giant dinosaur fossils.

With so much to see and do at Universal Studios Hollywood, the new California Neighbor Pass invites guests to experience 175 days of fun for $149 when purchased online. Visit http://www.UniversalStudiosHollywood.com for more details. Blackout dates and restrictions apply.

I gotta be honest, this announcement makes me worry even more about the ride than the original trailer we saw that confirmed screens. So how much of the ride is now going to be screens!??! =(

Honestly I was thinking the exact same thing but didn’t say anything. If they’re “starring” in this ride I feel like this whole thing is going to be screen oriented to drive the story. Darn shame if it’s true :(

Can you see the donkey in my toast?

This part kind of makes me hope it's queue tv videos and that it won't be as screen filled as we expect but let's be honest Universal doesn't have the best track record here on their over-use of screens.

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

From screamscape

Speaking of the Mosasaurus, more details about this particular encounter were mentioned, as guests enter the new Aquarium Observatory section of the ride and encounter the creature that will appear to be over 60 feet in length, with a weight of 30k pounds… yet this massive creature will move within inches of the guests as they pass through a virtual 3.5 million gallon glass-walled Mosasaurus enclosure.
Another interesting factoid about this particular new effects scene is that it will change throughout the day depending on the real-world environment outside. “The team also employed a series of lighting enhancements allowing the aquarium to intuitively shift from day to night, as well as visual changes to the environment during inclement weather, thus creating a variety of visual scenarios guests can experience based on when they experience the ride.”
