Still a giant pile of crap, but a polished and shiny giant pile of crap. People have their opinions and all but anyone who has this in their top 25 really needs to set their destinations to parks that aren't named 'Disney' and 'Universal.'Atlantis said:Universal did a great job at putting a not so great ride in the spotlight. AS a result people WANT to ride it and people WILL book just go and experience it. It filling the backdrop of those performances in HD hands now was extremely picturesque. I applaud them for how they did that.

Also there is a fun game we play. We never call it "Hollywood Rip Ride Rocket." We pick three random "R" words. For example: "Roaring Rooster Roundabout...in Hollywood." The goal is never to reuse any names, and to make them up on the fly, during conversations. (It is way more entertaining than it sounds.)
Fun fact: I attended Universal the week they filmed the DC segments of Sharknado 3. Sadly, no one was injured and no shitty roller coasters were harmed.Pretzel Kaiser said:The day that they announced that Shockwave was closing was the same day that I saw a preview of Sharknado 3 where the coaster was destroyed in the movie.
It was a good day.
