  • USH Backdraft & SFX Stages Close April 11

    Backdraft and SFX Stages are closing on April 11 to allow construction of the Transformers attraction to start. Transformers opens in 2012 (likely Summer).

    Finally! I can't wait to see what else Universal is cooking up, seeing as pretty much everything they've done this year (WWOHP, Kong) is getting rave reviews.

    Has 2012 been officially confirmed yet?

    I still think 2011 is going to be the year. Universal is much better at construction than Disney. The Kong show building is already complete and was only started a few months ago, and WWOHP went up in a little over a year from the ground up.

      2012 is what is listed in the latest edition of the Studio Insider (employee publication), which came out today.

        So it looks like we got less than 3 weeks to experience Backdraft before it goes up in flames!

            Transformers will "fuse 3D-HD media, mega special effects and stunning robotics with a ride system that will transform perceptions of theme park experiences." Should be good...

              But I want a "behind-the-scenes" type of attraction, why not just build the ride at USF and leave all the movie-making attractions at USH.

                USH is such a joke compared to USF. Trust me, even with the mega Transformers attraction it will still be small. USH NEEDS this ride.

                  The Studio Tour will be the only true behind-the-scenes attraction at USH in a couple of weeks.

                  Side note: USH is the only Universal Studios Park in the world to have a true studio tour because it is the only property that makes movies/tv shows/etc...

                  Just like DL, USH is boxed in and the only way to add something is to replace something. Nothing is going to change unless they're willing to sacrifice studio space.

                    Thats true, but I don't think the effects stages and backdraft will get the same amount of RPH than Transformers. I often ignored that corner of the park much like everybody else.

                      Are the special effects stages still open? I was under the impression that they closed months ago, the same time backdraft was supposed to close...


                      I'll be there on tuesday!

                        Nope both the Special Effects Stages and Backdraft are open for now.

                            Looking forward to a new "Spiderman" type ride in USH. Although, I wish it were something more appealing than "Transformers". And I'm also hoping they will find another location for an updated special effects stage show.

                              Rumor has it, that it will be temporarily relocated to the Castle Theater. Hopefully they will boost the shows popularity. I don't think this show had much infrastructure in the first place so I doubt it'll be hard to move to the CT.
