    Besides a bunch of movie themed rides, TNA wrestling tapes there on Tuesdays and you get in for free.

      I used to want to go but now it's completey fallen apart. :( They used to have Ghostbusters but now it's Twister, the King Kong ride is now The Mummy and Back to the Future is going to become The Simpsons. They still have E.T. but other than that they've lost a lot of good rides.

        oh yes, what used to be nickelodeon studios is now a Blue Man Group venue. also if you go in between now and mid-april, be sure to go on a saturday because they have a mardi gras thingy.

          That ET ride kicks ass, the back to the fututure ride wasnt all that great, oh and the Indiana Jones ride also kicked ass. What about the Jurassic Park ride does it still exsist?

            Jurassic Park is part of Islands of Adventure, but Indiana Jones was in Walt Disney World.

              Don't just go to Universal Studios, go to Islands of Adventure as well. There's some pretty sweet roller coasters there, and the Spider-Man 3D ride kicks ass. It's basically part of Universal Studios, but considered a seperate park so you have to pay separately to get in there...but they do have a good deal where you just pay once for both parks.

                  I only went to Universal Studios Orlando when they opened the Nick Studios back in 1990.

                    I've been I think three times. The last time we went, in October, we didn't have as much fun. I was looking forward to the King Kong ride. I'd only ridden it once before years ago. I was shocked when I asked about it, and how I was told it didn't exist anymore.

                    So...they're closing down Back to the Future too? That sucks big time. I've never been to Islands of Adventure. I always wanted to, but every time I've visited Orlando, it's been with family, and I'm the only "amusement park" person in my family, for the most part.

                    Too bad I never had the chance to go when I was younger. My folks couldn't afford that type of a trip back then. I'd always wanted to go to Nickelodeon Studios. My first time in Orlando was in 1998. Nickelodeon Studios still existed at the time, but, there wasn't anything in production at the time that interested me enough to want to check it out.

                      I've only been to the one in California. All I remember is the Jaws ride, and going on a tram that went around a neighborhood and there was the house from Leave It To Beaver, and a few other shows. There was also a Battlestar Galactica ride if I remember right. This was 1984 so my memory is a bit foggy and I don't know how much of that stuff they still have, or have in Orlando.

                            I haven't been there since 1991 but when I was there I really liked the Back to the Future and King Kong rides and I saw a demonstration put on by a sound folley artist and a profile on Hitchcock that showed how he achieved the Psycho shower scene and had excerpts from the Birds in 3-D.

                              I've been to Universal Studios Hollywood once back in 2000. That's where I got to go on the studio tour which was where they showed us the sets to King Kong (1979) and Jaws. I also went on the Back to the Future ride which was really fun and I went on the Jurassic Park ride. It was a cool place to go.

                                Ooo, I saw that when I went my first time in 1998! That was the highlight of the trip, imo. It was a whole Alfred Hitchcock special type thing, and they were showing stuff from movies aside from Psycho, iirc. I don't think that was there either when we went this past October.

                                  I remember that as well. The last and only time I've been was to the one in Florida in 1993 or 94. I deffinatly remember the Hitchcock show and I remember seeing the house prop in the background walking around near the Fivel Goes West Play Area. Jaws wasn't working when we were there unfortunatly. I remember that the I Love Lucy Museum/trivia computer screen area thingy had just recently opened. We went to Nick Studios and I remember when waiting in line they showed Rocko on the screens outside. I was kind of disapointed though because you always heard back then about people getting to see Clarissa or All That being filmed and all the other shows but there was nothing being taped at the time so all we did was have a little tour and then sit down in stadium type bleachers and play some stupid game where the kids sat on one side and the adults on the other and we had to pass some object all the way to the back of the bleachers and see who could do it the fastest. Kind of really lame.

                                  I remember going on the Hannah Barbara Ride and ET and I think the lines for Back To The Future and King Kong and Ghost Busters were just way way to long. It was back during the time that we did all the parks together(MGM, Disney, Epcot, Universal, Sea World,Bush Gardens)so I can't remember exactly what else was strictly at Universal. I do remember the Marx Brothers(OBVIOUSLY not the real ones lol) walking around and Harpo honking his horn at girls. I remember Woody Woodpecker walking around as well. I remember getting a little keychain movie camera that had scooby doo frames inside and when you wound it up(like an old fashioned movie camera)it would move so it was like watching a cartoon that you were winding yourself. Man..great memories. Even though I was a chubby kid I had some good times. I can't beleive that all of that was when I was like 13 and I turned 27 in September.

                                    Time does go by fast. I was 9 when I went to Florida and did a lot of the theme parks around there. Another thing I remember about Universal studios was having lunch in a 50's style diner and outside the diner there was a group doing 50's and early 60's covers.

                                    On the same trip I saw Bush Gardens (I got hooked on the log flume ride there, I went on it four times in a row) and the Epcot Center.

                                      I remember standing on the bridge over the log flume and getting WET. Like wetter than when I rode the actual ride. It was awesome.

                                        Never got to go to univeral Studios or disney or six flags.

                                        Univeral Studios has dumped back to the future, kong, hanna-barbera ride, ghostbusters show, he-man show , and transformers stage show over the years.

                                        Disney is dropping muppet vision 3-d next year for a cars or toy story ride so if you want to see it, do it now.
