Over the course of this episode, listeners will learn about: How the themed smells that are about to be introduced in the restrooms at Universal’s Islands of Adventure are really an extension of that audio of Moaning Myrtle you can hear in Hogsmeade’s “public convenience” Whether it will be necessary to ride Hagrid’s Magical Creature Motorbike Adventure at night in order to get the true Dark Woods / Forbidden Forest experience Where exactly you need to go in Toon Lagoon in order to get the best possible view of the soon-to-begin-construction Jurassic Park / World coaster The role that “ER” (i.e., NBC’s long-running medical drama) played in “Jurassic Park” becoming this big film franchise / hugely important IP for NBCUniversal / Comcast How Disney’s “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” influenced the way that Steven Spielberg shot the T-Rex-breaks-out-of-its-paddock scene in the original “Jurassic Park” movie


Dustin Fuhs & Jim Hill share what they’ve learned about the work that’s been going on down on the Lower Lot of Universal Studios Hollywood. They also talk about why – when it came time to turn “Jurassic Park” into the jumping-up off point for a theme park attraction – Universal Creative opted to build a boat ride rather than a jeep-based experience
