The "ride" is a walk-through set celebrating the movie that broke summer box office records and beat out other action films like Mission: Impossible. Guests enjoy watching pre-production footage introduced by Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt, and then "survive" a replication of a tornado sweeping through a drive-in.
Every time I go to Universal Studios, I'm not gonna lie: I have to do this attraction. My love for the attraction started out with simply enjoying the relief of air conditioning from the heat. But over time, I've been on it so many times, the film has become my one of my all-time favorites.
As early as summer 2014, rumors have begun that the attraction will be replaced with something. I figured now's a perfect time to share some photos and videos. Hope you enjoy!
