The Universal Starway...a set of long escalators to get to the lower lot (but at least mostly shielded from the sun)


IMG_9244
The Mummy rollercoaster ride was lots of fun, and fit into a little sound stage, in 2011 there will be a Transformers ride...

Jurassic Park had a water ride (presented by GE Money)

Daniel got to be one of two audience stars in the special effects feature show

Waiting for the Backdraft show (woah...that's an OOOOLD movie now)


IMG_9267
But fire is still fun even if the intro/attraction are a bit outdated


IMG_9270
How nice, the contents are sorted for recycling...I'd hate to have that job - one melted ice cream cone on a bunch of paper I think I'd sort that into the "trash" pile

City of LA


IMG_9273
The water misting devices were a nice idea, but many were WAY too high to reach the ground esp if any wind was present, thus wasting the water


IMG_9275
The Simpsons ride was nice, but virtual rollercoasters just don't do it for me...


IMG_9276
Daniel and Spongebob


IMG_9277
Poor Jay Leno, not long for the Tonight Show when we were there


IMG_9278
How ironic, wearing a Disneyland Resort hat to Universal Studios Hollywood...


IMG_9284
This was the Waterworld show, a very popular attraction and VERY wet...if you ever go sit up pretty far unless you like getting wet


IMG_9285


IMG_9286
A giant plane crash landed into the main water area and thus the big splash on our side...my camera was left a bit damp but survived...


IMG_9288
Curious George also had his own area of the park with a giant rocket that blasted off by dumping large amounts of water below


IMG_9289
#1 rated show in the WORLD? Hmm....


IMG_9290


IMG_9292
Deflated and hanging on the wall...


IMG_9293
I think this is a candy Homer Simpson head being bought


IMG_9294
People getting their picture taken in front of a statue of a director/filming crew


IMG_9298
Parking lot of the Hilton Universal City with a big NBC Universal building in the back (that NBCU doesn't occupy much of)
