What’s Ahead for Universal Orlando Resort in 2020

January 15, 2020
Universal Globe

The past 10 years have brought a lot of growth and change to Universal Orlando Resort, and I’m proud to say I’ve been here through it all. I’ve joined you in experiencing new ground-breaking attractions and entertainment, new restaurants that are elevating theme-park dining, and annual events that keep getting bigger and better. Not to mention the opening of four new hotels and big game-changers to the theme park industry like Universal’s Volcano Bay and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

A decade has come to a close and I can write a novel on all the memories and happenings. But why reflect on the past when we have so much to look forward to? It’s time to start the next chapter for Universal Orlando Resort. Let’s kick it off with an epic year of new attractions, experiences, and celebrations.

The Bourne Stuntacular – New!

The Bourne Stuntacular Exterior

It’s all there in the name, folks. STUNTS. And I’m not just talking your typical flying-through-a-glass-door stunt. This live-action show is putting you right smack dab in the middle of the action you’ve seen from Universal Pictures’ blockbuster Bourne films. I recently got a download on the details and from what I’ve heard and seen glances of, this show is going to make you say things like, “Wait! How’d they do that?” Read more here and stay tuned for more details.

Twenty-five years of Mardi Gras at Universal Studios Florida makes for one heck of a bead collection.

Halloween Horror Nights – 30 Years of Horror

Select Nights Sept. 10 – Nov. 1, 2020

Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Florida

Ah, Halloween Horror Nights. Just when I think you can’t get any better, you prove me wrong.The horror, scares, and fear you inflict on both your diehard fans and unsuspecting first-time victims grows on a more grand scale with every passing year. 2020 marks the 30 years of the world’s premier Halloween event, and I can’t wait to see what — or who’s — lurking in the shadows.

What’s Ahead…

Wow! Let’s all take a minute and absorb those celebrations and new experiences to check out. It’s going to be a busy year. BUT I’m not stopping there and neither is Universal Orlando! There’s even more in store for you like:

    Definitely excited! This is my favorite theme park ever! Only thing I’m going to give you guys a bit of a gripe about is the fast & furious ride. I’ve talked with a lot of people, and they all agree it’s one of the weakest rides at the park. So, I was thinking, you could turn it into a scary, indoor, dark ride. Not everyone waits until October to be scared.

    So, I’m not sure how things work with licensing and such, but, Five Nights at Freddy’s is still pretty popular, and if you guys were to make a FNaF indoor ride with big animatronics that jump scare and come super close to you, I’m telling you, that would be a great attraction that would probably be one of the biggest stars of the park. As always I’d expect nothing less than a complete immersive environment, dark and creepy, having people nervous throughout the entire ride with, not even the queue line being safe.

    And just think, if you do this and it goes well, if you want to make rides based off the sequel games, you could keep the first one, and make the other ones. Just please don’t be cheap and alter things in the same ride like you did with Jurassic Park to Jurassic World. People aren’t too fond of that. If you’re going to make a sequel ride, please go all in with it, and make a completely new one instead of remodeling the old one that we love. Go all in with the different theming, story, music, animatronics, and all around experience of it. People don’t like it when they wait in anticipation for so long just to get the same ride with a little tweak to it. That’s something we expect from Six flags… You guys should be far beyond that. C’mon, give the people what they want.. pleeeeeaaase 💕
