Who wants to get the first ride through the new Courthouse Square at Universal Studios Hollywood?
Written by Robert Niles
You might remember that a fire destroyed part of the Universal Studios Hollywood backlot last summer, including King Kong and the famous Courthouse Square set, where the Back to the Future movies, among others, were filmed.Tweet
Well, Universal's been rebuilding the backlot, and while the new Kong isn't ready yet, Courthouse Square is, and the first Studio Tour of the newly refurbished sections of the backlot goes out on Thursday morning.
I've been invited to be on the first tram, and Universal's letting me bring three guests along. Interested? E-mail me, or respond in the comments below.
This isn't a free admit to the park. It's basically a front of the line pass to get onto the VIP tram. But it'd be a fun way to spend a Thursday morning, if you are in the LA area and either have a USH pass or were looking for an excuse to visit the park.
First come, first served. I'll e-mail privately with details on where we'll meet up to get on the tram. Then I'll be posting pictures and a write-up here on the Flume Thursday afternoon.
