Why You Need to visit Universal Orlando Before October 8, 2017

It’s official: you have a few weeks to experience Terminator 2: 3-D at Universal Studios Florida.

The last show will run on October 8, 2017.

Why you need to visit Universal Orlando before October 8, 2017: changes are coming to the Terminator 2: 3D attraction.

TERMINATOR 2: 3-D Ð A cyborg from Terminator 2: 3-D Battle Across Time at Universal Studios theme park gets up close and personal with guests. This virtual adventure is one of the most elaborate and technologically advanced theme park experiences ever created. Based on the blockbuster ÒTerminatorÓ films, the centerpiece of the attraction is a 12 minute, $23 million 3-D film shot especially for Universal Studios that features the cast and creative team from the Terminator films. T2-3D puts guests in the middle of the action through innovative 3-D filmmaking, live action stunt work and state-of-the-art effects.

The attraction is essentially a mini-sequel to the blockbuster hit Terminator 2: Judgment Day. It’s been in the Florida park since 1996.

My sci-fi loving family just visited Universal Orlando and loved this experience!

When I broke the news to them that it was going away, they all agreed: people should try to see this one last time before it’s gone for good!

What’s Replacing Terminator 2: 3D

Universal has not announced which attraction will replace the Terminator experience at this time.

They have announced that a new live action experience based on a high-energy Universal franchise. It will open in its place in 2019.

With so many movies under the Universal brand, I can’t wait to see what they’ve decided to put here!

This is one of many exciting new experiences coming to Universal Orlando Resort as they continue their epic growth.

While we are sad to say goodbye to a family favorite, we are certainly excited to see what Universal Orlando has to offer in the coming years!
