What’s so great about Universal Studios Part 4
Disaster; originally this was Earthquake based on the blockbuster film from the 70’s which starred some very big names such as Charlton Heston and William Holden, the show is essentially the same as it was but with another name. It shows you how many of the movie special effects were made and filmed but the best part id when you board a subway train.
The train stops at the city station you here and feel rumbling as an earthquakes starts and soon the road above you falls in with a fuel tanker crashing through the floor sliding towards you before bursting into flames, you can feel the intense heat as the fuel burns but not to worry as a huge torrent of water comes rushing down the staircase into the station flooding the tracks be warned if you sit on the right hand side of the carriages you may get wet. Although this is an old ride I still like this one as it feels very realistic still to this day.
Next along used to be the old jaws ride a much loved but again an older ride the kids loved this when they were little but universal has recently taken down this ride and cleared the plot for a new and exciting ride to open soon.
The next attraction you come across is simply the best ride in the park in my view it is the famous MIB (men in Black) ride this is a very popular ride and there may be a long wait at the busy time so it’s best to choose your times carefully to avoid the crowds if you can.
You are there to save the Earth from the aliens as a rookie you wind your way through the MIB headquarters until you reach the training vehicle where you have a weapon to help protect the streets that you are about to drive, be careful though there are literally hundreds of aliens that have escaped from the intergalactic prison transport that must be dealt with so take aim and let them have it!
Your score will determine if you save the earth and if you have a good enough score you might even be accepted into a fully-fledged Men in Black agent if you’re very lucky, the ride has a number of different endings so it’s fun to ride time and again.
Men in Black is definitely a ride not to be missed, and be sure to take a look at your photo at the end of the ride!
