Day 32 – Universal Studios

Visited Universal Studios today.

The focus of this park is on film making, film history and TV.

There are a number of simulator style rides, including The Simpsons ride which is based in “Krustyland” and Despicable Me Minion Mayhem where you are in training to become one of Gru’s minion. I enjoyed these rides the most – not too jolty and good effects.

The weirdest ride would have to be ET for some reason E.T.’s homeworld, the Green Planet, is dying. Only E.T. has the power to save it… and only YOU can bring him there. There is no explanation of why any of the other ETs can’t save their own planet or how we can take him home on flying bicycles. Also, the green plant looks a lot like Endor. Also, they take your name before the ride, for no apparent reason. The website says that Guests receive a personalized farewell from E.T. himself, but I missed that maybe ET didn’t like me. Left that ride a little confused.
