One of the highlights of this latest trip was re-visiting Universal Studios (and experiencing lighter than normal traffic on the infamous freeways). One new attraction to me was the Ifly experience located in the “citywalk” which leads to the main entrance. This is a “vertical wind tunnel” which for $40 and 2 mins of your time (after waiting in line and undergoing a short instruction session) you can “fly”! Put on a flight suit, goggles and helmet and your ready to go. With a flight instructor at your side you will literally be “floating” based on the power of the wind tunnel. Neat stuff.
The highlight of this latest trip to Universal Studios was the new King Kong 3D attraction. For about a minute you will experience a complete visual assault within the world’s largest 3d studio. TRex comes lunging at you from all directions – and for those who sit in the last cars of the tram, be aware – you might just be at risk to those huge jaws!
One of the not to miss shows is “Waterworld”. This is a show that involves the entire crowd and when the actors are energized their energy transfers directly to the crowd. If you want to get wet, you wish is easily made possible by where you sit. Green seats indicate seats that will get wet before and during the show. The actual show is nonstop action. After it is over you can take pictures with the actors, many of whom have made appearances on big name TV shows.
good review on U.S.!
Loved Water World when I was there! I was holding my breath for most of it…(guess I don’t get much excitement in my everyday life!
Wish I would have seen the Flying stunt…would have loved to try that one. Maybe next round:)
That seems such an exciting trip, I’d love to visit that place too some day!

Awesome! It looks and sounds like so much fun.
Love the “mini” trips I get to take at your blog, and I just gave you a blog award at my page.
Hi Nicki – thanks very much for the blog award – I’ll check out the other 14 sites you spotlighted 🙂
Dawn – I had seen Water World before but it was just as good to see it the 2nd time. The actors really get the crowd roaring, not to mention wet from all those buckets of water they throw on people!
Hi Dave, a pleasure that you are in our home blog, and more so because you have a special blog: Travel … my law of life. No strings attached, control, or haste. I will tell you that, because in November, begin a new place in my life. I will tie all economic, social and personal, to get to South America, a place that provides warmth and life.And with way ticket only ajajaajaj, many of I know think it’s crazy … but I can tell you, I am hardened crazy.
Well since I got here, to share ideas and I will impress your flying experience. A big hug
You’ve got a really nice website!
