Dustin Fuhs & Jim Hill start off Episode 19 by talking about the latest addition to “Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure” at Universal’s Islands of Adventure. They then discuss how the Universal Creative seems to be stepping away from producing rides, shows & attractions for the parks that make use of 3D glasses


Over the course of this episode, listeners will learn about:

How Universal Studios Japan – rather than replacing its “Back to the Future: The Ride” attraction with “The Simpsons Ride” – opted to go with “Despicable Me Minion Mayhem” instead

How the “Today Show Café” at Universal Studios Florida is trying to make sure that its menu has something more to offer park Guests than just breakfast options

How Universal Parks & Resorts is hoping that its Terror Trivia game will make waiting in line to enter the mazes at this year’s Halloween Horror Nights a bit more bearable

What exactly did Universal Creative do to the ride film for “Fast & Furious Supercharged” to make it look like a 3D movie without then requiring Guests at Universal Studios Florida to actually put on a pair of 3D glasses

How many different names does Disney & Universal have for those 3D glasses that they hand out at their rides, shows & attractions
