    Really? (said just like Kyle in that South Park episode about the 9/11 conspiracies) Anyone have any (very) current photos from USH's version? I just can't see how this is possible without letting people in while the exterior is being finished...

      Hollywood's building has more structural problems than Orlando's. This is probably where the extra money went.

      In related, I heard that they are having problems getting the projection right in Orlando. I really hope they get that fixed by USH's opening...
      Seems fine to me. Where'd you hear this?

        Wasn't that Orlando that had the structural problems? Isn't that why they closed way early compared to Hollywood?

        Several Universal fansites. Word today, although, is that they finally fixed it...

            The ride system has been known to put stress on both buildings, but the way Hollywood's was haphazardly built, it's definitely worse for the wear. As for Orlando's BTTF closing earlier, they probably did this so they could use it as the guinea pig for this project because USH couldn't afford to have theirs closed for so long, since the park has so few attractions.

              I love love love the theming of this ride, all through the queue and into the attraction.. I can't wait to actually experience this ride for myself.

                This video from a Sacramento news station shows a full scale model of the finished USH building.

                  Yeah, there's a few elements missing from USF's facade, but still, we're talking seventeen days 'til not only completion, but a full blown opening. That's a pretty tight schedule...

                        so is the simpsons ride kinda like a star tours ride? the ride looks fun. and it makes fun of disney and other competitions.
