  • Amity - A Photo Tribute

    Amity at Universal Studios Florida is closing to make way for a new land, so here is a tour of the former land! These pictures were taken in early November 2011, except a few from November 2008.

    Views of Amity from the World Expo waterfront:









    Entrance from San Francisco:





    Amusements area:
    The fictitious New England fishing village from the Film 'Jaws' was the focus of the theme of Amity, pinned to a particular time of year: July 4th. Next to the permanent buildings of the village was an area of amusements and games and food stands, supposedly set up for an Independence Day celebration.







    Village:
    Several of the village buildings lined the informal cobbled street on one side and the waterfront on the other.























    Surf Shack:





    Amusements area near the Surf Shack:





    Boardwalk Snacks:









    More village:





    Square:
    The street widened at this square, where the recently caught Jaws had been hoisted. This memorable icon acted as the entrance area to the land's ride, Jaws.





    Jaws queue area:



















    Jaws loading dock:
    A waterfront viewing area between the loading and unloading docks provided a view of part of this mildly thrilling narrated boat ride.



    Jaws area village:
    The loading area and first part of the ride featured the outskirts of Amity along the waterfront; the ride's waterway was actually its own, separated from the park's main lake (upon which the other side of Amity was located). The ride traveled beyond the lighthouse and around a corner before encountering Jaws several times, out of view of the village, until returning to the unloading dock. I was an obedient tourist and did not take pictures on the ride!











    Jaws unloading dock:





    Village Circle Hall (restrooms):
    This was located at the end of the street before the theme ended.

              Thanks for sharing. I'm pretty bummed I missed this ride. I didn't realize the area around it was so large and themed so well
