Universal Update 6.2.12.


Noticed a new photo station at the entrance of Jurassic Park from Toon Lagoon. The T-Rex photo-op has a photo station scanner which takes your photo automatically. You scan the barcode slip. ( If you do not have one a team member can give you one)  A fixed camera will countdown and take your picture you can then view the photo at the front of the park or visit online. Check it out in action below

Video below:

Universal also testing a new Ride Reservation device for the Express system they currently have ( If I am not mistaken this is called U-pod? or something like that). It allows Express guests to reserve a time to visit a particular attraction around the park. Once they are finished with the previous ride, the device will allow you to make another. The system has been currently testing for a few weeks now at IOA only. If feedback is good you might see it at Universal soon.

  At Universal, DMMM opening July 2
More work continues around the lagoon. Painting of the railings along the lagoon and also new covers on the projectors for the night time show. 

 Stage getting ready for the summer concert series starting next week. The concerts are included with the parks admission and only on Saturday nights. Check - out the line-up below.
 Aside from the parade that runs through late afternoon, there are also Character Party Zones at different times during the day. Each parade float and the characters come out and performs; then meet guests for photo op in-front of the Horror Make-up show. Times are printed on the park map.
