New shows, new themes and new tech at Universal Studios Hollywood
Written by Robert Niles
Got an e-mail yesterday from a Universal Studios Hollywood insider, reporting some nifty tech upgrades at the park:Tweet
Just wanted to give you a heads-up -- next time you're at USH, stop by the Shrek 4D attraction -- We've just upgraded the projection system and the new projectors are a vast improvement ofer the originals. The old projectors were a quartet of Barco ELM R12 behemoths. Each eye consisted of two projectors and each projector covered half of the screen. The two images were blended down the center. The original projectors were only 12,000 lumens. The new projectors are state of the art Christie HD+30K units.
USH also released some detail about this year's Halloween Horror Nights:
Universal Studios Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights will present an all-new "live" attraction based on the most profitable horror franchise to date, SAW, per an agreement among Universal Studios Theme Parks, Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures.
Finally, wrapping up the USH news, I will be attending the debut of the park's new live show, The Creature From The Black Lagoon: The Musical, next Tuesday, reporting with a review later that day here on Theme Park Insider.
