  • L.A. Times Advertisement

    There was a special 4 page ad in the L.A. Times for the opening of the King Kong attraction. The ad contained several 'faked' news stories involving a mysterious giant simian creating havoc throughout Universal Studios and the rest of Southern California. Photos of giant ape feet on the sand at the beach, Dodger Stadium in ruins, an airport with the planes on fire. It took me a second to realize it was an ad because it was so cleverly done.

    Not only has universal outdone disney with the wizarding world but now they've outdone them in creative advertising as well. I'm gonna have to start planning more trips to universal.
    In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

    ^I don't think Disney needs to advertise here in CA, they just got WoC and glow fest both are making many people pretty happy and word of mouth im sure is all Disney will need this summer to keep there numbers WAY up. Universal needs the crowds which im sure they'll get with all the Kong Stuff I've seen from the internet, to posters, to Xbox live.
    Happy Halloween!!!

      Universal has sure turned the corner, from when they first advertised Islands of Adventure ~ unfortunately Disney's marketing has been inconsistant at best.

        Universal has really stepped up their game in many ways. In fact, I'll be celebrating my birthday today not at Disneyland (as I always have in the past) but at Universal Studios Hollywood.

        Kudos to Universal and their top notch new attractions and marketing.

                We were going to check out Kong on Saturday, but my dad, who works at the studio mind you, overheard an employee from the park saying that they're expecting around 31,000 people that day. We decided to go Monday.

                    31K is just the projection. It may end up being more or it could end up being less. The Park has been hitting over 9K daily for a while now.

                        I used to live close to the park and go all the time. I avoided the park on days like that. Universal would open all the extra parking lots, including the 100 Universal Plaza office structure parking.

                          Today CM parking is being relocated from the Frankenstein structure (on non peak days we park in the Jurassic structure) to the structure over by the Technicolor gate (right before Lankershim splits past the Bank of America) and will be shuttled over to the theme park. On relocation days you have to get to USH about an hour before your shift to make sure you have enough time to catch the shuttle and get to work on time. It's a real headache for everyone.

                            Yikes! That's hectic! Do you think the crowd die down a tad on Monday?

                              ^Friday WAS CRAZY so I would expect the line for the Tram to be 40 mins before 11 am on Monday, the rest of the rides had normal lines until around noonish. Get there when the park opens and you'll be able to do everything you want.
                              Happy Halloween!!!
