          I was lucky. I caught it on the 23rd. I had no idea it was going away either. We were going to pass it by but my dad wanted to see it and no one else did so I accompanied him

            You can still see it in Sunny Orlando Florida! Feel free to take a trip, and see the resort out here!

              I can't believe they closed this show. Even though it was dated it still had a wow factor.

              seems like they could have fit a good size building next to terminator in the wasted space that has the coca cola wet area or whatever it is. Another place could have been the old western stunt show arena area or even better in the area where they have the lame horro walk thre once used for van helsin.


              universal Hollywood upper lot in my opinion has one of the worst layouts for a theme park. They have so much wasted space that could be utilized if they began planning things correctly as they add new attractions or shows.


              What they really should do is remove the saddle ranch coffe house and clear that whole area up to the beginning of the city walk and turn the entrance around. The main entrance drag would now have people's tearing I to the production plaza where the terminator attraction is now. The new facade for the minion ride would blend in nicely into a new shopping and hollywood way entrance.

              doing this would give the parks courtyard and ape trance a direct view from city walk and then open up a huge piece of land where the existing entrance is for expansion.

              the Gibson theater would then fit nicely right behind the Wolfgang puck Restaurant in the groundlevel parking lot with direct access to the city walk Main circular courtyard and parking lot next to it

                I have to agree. Even though it was definitely starting to show its age, it was still my favorite 3D show (as opposed to a 3D attraction like the TF Ride, Star Tours, or TSMM). I'll miss it for sure, but this only gives me another reason to visit USO, which I've never visited!

                I also agree that the Upper Lot layout is pretty bad, but I'm not sure if there's a whole lot they could do since everything has to be designed with the backlot in mind (like not having buildings from the Upper Lot visible on the backlot or sound carrying down there, etc). But then again, I'm no expert and I have only experienced the park as a guest so I couldn't really tell you what all factors have to be considered.

                I'm sure it's something they're working on though with WWOHP coming as well as the (yet-to-be-announced) LOTR deal!

                  When I visited USH for the first time in August this was probably my least fave attraction. I didn't really care for the 3D movie they showed.

                  However I did really enjoy the pre-show and the live action ellements. Still kinda sad to see something close that was there for such a long time.

                    I saw the show two or three times during it's entire run. It was certainly the attraction we visited least at the park. I won't miss it a bit.

                      The problem with the upper lot is that it can only support so much weight where T2 was. It's above the parking structure, so they have to take that into consideration before adding too many attractions to that area.

                      Oh, and the idea about moving the main gate over near there? That's actually where the original gates were! For a while, they were still there even after they created the new entry plaza. The only relic from that is the fountain with the old logo where the drop-off is. Although it's been a couple years, and maybe even that fountain is gone.

                          I spent the summer of '00 working at this attraction and BTTF. I still have my Cyberdyne badge tucked away somewhere. Good times.

                          RIP T2:3D.

                            If you are talking about that super sudden drop at the ending of the show..that drop screwed up my back! And scared the beejezus out of me...just wasn't expecting it.

                              The fountain is thankfully still there!
