  • Universal Studios Hollywood 3/2/13 - 1st of many trips in 2013

    Greetings!

    I went to USH on the 2nd for the first trip with my 2013 AP.

    We bought Preferred parking and ended up right at the front gate but decided to walk a bit around City Walk first.








    Once inside we headed straight for Simpsons

    On the way...














    The first thing we hit was Simpsons. I had never ridden it yet and I had taken my Dramamine so I was hoping for a non-nausea filled experience!












    Very cool ride, but probably not something I would do at every visit. But still, from what queue I did see the theming was great. (There was no line when we arrived so we walked on.

    Also, my kid wasn't ready to ride since he didn't know what to expect so we did child switch. When I got off, my sister told me a worker had given them a "front of the line" pass for any ride. We ended up using it for the Tram Tour later

    We then headed down to the lower lot for Transformers, Jurassic park and my first time on The Mummy







    First was Transformers, which was walk on:













    On our way out of Transformers, Bumblebee was just coming out





    Then it was child switch for Mummy. I had never ridden it so really didn't know what to expect.


















    I enjoyed it alot. But I have to say, the going backwards thing....I REALLY didn't know about and it caught me off guard. Great ride!

    Some photos on the way out...







    I then rode Jurassic Park for the first time in...hmmm..I want to say 15 years. I remember, back then when I rode it, the fall lasting a life time. So I was a bit unnerved but had to try it. Once again, fun times had! The fall wasn't that bad and the big T-Rex before the drop was HUGE!

    Then it was lunch time. But on the way back out to go have lunch at Bubba Gumps, we passed two shows that were starting one after the other. First, the Special Effects show:













    Then just as we were leaving that show, the Animal show was starting right next door. We decided why not! This was a great show. I liked the cats


















    Then more random walking before lunch







    No, this wasn't lunch..this was a prop on one of the wall displays









    Next...the Tram Tour, a bad choice for me, and Waterworld!!!

    After lunch, it was time for the Tram Tour. Always a favorite of mine.





































    Then we all went back down to the lower lot for Jurassic Park again where we made the mistake of sitting in the front. Yup, we got soaked...blegh!

    But the day was winding down and as we waited for Water World, I decided to try out the House of Horrors...uh BIG mistake





    I don't know why I thought it was like a kinda wax museum of the old horror films and such....uh far from it. And the girl at the front did say what to expect but I wasn't listening because I was distracted by a father forcing his 9 year old son to go in. Anyway, it was basically a maze like at Halloween Horror Nights and I'm NOT a fan of that stuff. I'm a wimp. So I made friends with the girls huddling together in front of me and just walked as fast as I could. I hate those mazes. SO, lesson learned, NEVER again!

    Onto Waterworld....a great show with great performers!















    It was a great day, we got pretty much everything done and I wasn't to tired out. I look forward to going more often.

    Thanks for reading!

                Thanks for sharing USH is a great park, but I hope Waterworld stays for a while longer. it is a great show. Finally, when are they going to remove the Fast and Furious areas in the park. it is so boring!!!
                The new Star Wars plot summery:

                Episode 7: Luke discovers that Darth Vader is not his father, and goes on a search for his real father

                Episode 8: Darth Vader is resurrected and goes on Jerry Springer, claiming he is Luke and Leia's father

                Episode 9: Princes Leia is not Luke's sister, making him furious (we all know why...).

                  Aww..you don't like the dancing cars? But I thought there was a Fast and Furious 5 coming out soon...I thought I saw posters on the walls for it.

                        Getting the pass was kinda a fluke thing. We bought tickets on December 23rd for the Xmas celebrations and it came with the 2013 pass. I'm glad that it did because I see many more trips in the future
