Universal closes Earthquake; 'Disaster' replacement to open in December
Written by Robert Niles
It looks like the Earthquake attraction at Universal Studios Florida, which already has lost much of its theming to the 1970s disaster flick, will lose that theming entirely.Tweet
Universal announced that today was the last day for the attraction, which opened with the park in 1990. The attraction had already had a middle show section cut and will now get a more complete make-over, as well as a new name.
The rehabbed ride will reopen in December with the new name "Disaster! A Major Motion Picture Ride . . . Starring You." In its press releasem Universal said the ride "will offer guests an all-new experience that combines the best, most dramatic elements of Earthquake with new blockbuster celebrity talent, new ride elements, new digital technologies, interactive components and a new storyline."
No specific opening date or ride specs yet.
