  • Pictures and Video of Fast And the Furious at USH

    http://ushhq.exofire.net/readarticle.php?article_id=12

    From looking at the video, the new attraction looks SOOOO incredibly bad.

    I really hope this isn't the final product.

    I was never a fan of the Tram Tour myself, to be honest. This looks interesting, and I'm not sure if the video is "tell all" or if the actual segment on the tour will be a LOT better than in person. Hopefully it's the latter.

      :blink:

      Way to go GE!!! Nothing like adding crap, calling it an attraction, and wondering why your attendance is falling like a stone. Wow.
      That was lousy. They could have used those Kuka arms for a low capacity ride and made it cooler. I mean every other stunt thing in any movie park tries to hide the mechanisms...not this one. Maybe it is still getting tweaked.

        Uh, where is the video? I only saw stills. I was up there two weekends ago and took the tour. The area that they said was for Fast and Furious is a very tiny road off to the side of where the trees and plants are kept. The only new thing (to me anyway) that I saw up there besides the construction for fast and furious was the new spitting dinos that come out of the bushes on the right side. and the car display.

          From the video, looks like its a technical rehearsal. Then an accident occurs with water and fire. The false floor for the 2 cars open downwards. And the cars end up being "blown" in the air and about to crash into the tram. They even named the cars, I forgot what it was. And that's it. The end. Even worse than what I thought it would be. They shouldn't have advertised it as "attraction" but more like "addition" to the studio tour. Probably the shortest stop the tram makes for a show scene. And sadly, those not bring much excitment. More like a bit of a confusion.

          I figured the bottom of the cars would have lots of smoke effect (tires screeching), and they do car tricks. Like spinning tires and drifting in circles. Then the cars turn they backs at the tram and speed away blowing tire smoke at the tram. That's what I thought it would be.

          This new area will surely get something new after this Fast & Furious dies down. And hopefully it won't use the same stuff they have now. Should be something completely new.

          Of course, USH is infamous for fire, water, and smoke effects in nearly all their attractions.

          I knew it looked like the robocoasters from the tests they were doing. It looked like they were trying something new with this new tech. Pretty much fails to impress. Maybe they should have had 3-4 of these, and made each car fit 4 people inside. Then have a regular robocoaster ride. Where to put it? Maybe a new area inbetween the Mummy building and SFX soundstage.

          Thanks SC for posting this, I will most likely make a trip to USH this Thursday to see for myself.

                So many haters on these boards!

                Look at the bright side everyone, at least Universal didn't put in a crappy, 15 second long, mummy themed, poor excuse for a roller coaster, indiana jones rip off ride in their par... oh wait, never mind.

                  I at least thought the Mummy had a good premise and idea behind it...
