Dustin Fuhs & Jim Hill start off this week’s podcast by discussing – less than 24 hours after Halloween Horror Nights 29 ends its 41-night run – the Universal Orlando Resort began promoting 2020’s “30 Years of Fear.” They then talk about how the Epic Universe development team is working with the local community to ensure that Universal Orlando’s fourth theme park is seen as a good neighbor.


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

How Universal Orlando’s Endless Summer Resort stacks up, capacity-wise, in comparison to a Walt Disney World value resort like Pop Century

Why it was more than the annual maintenance which needed to be done on “Popeye & Bluto’s Bilge-Rat Barges” that made Island of Adventure’s ops team decide to shut down this Toon Lagoon attraction

How Lupita Nyong'o briefly lent a little of her star power to the Universal Studios Hollywood version of Halloween Horror Nights

Why Disney & SeaWorld will be keeping a very close eye on that new Uber / Lyft lounge that the Universal Orlando Resort plans on building inside of one of its parking garages

How – back on October 23rd – USF visitors got a few more thrills on “Rip Ride Rockit” than they had originally planned to experience on this coaster
