2010 Best Theme Park Attraction nominee: Universal Studios Florida's Universal Horror Make-up Show
Published: January 13, 2010 at 12:47 PM
The Make-up Show was one of the original attractions at Universal Studios Florida when the park opened in 1990. In fact, the show was one of the few of the park's attractions that you could count on opening every day during that difficult first summer. Over the years, Universal's tweaked the show, but it retains its aggressive, irreverent humor, making it a favorite with many visitors.
Sure, you'll learn a few insiders' tips about how prop masters and make-up artists create effects for the screen, but mostly you'll laugh at the hosts placing audience "volunteers" in a variety of, uh, uncomfortable positions.
Here's a YouTube clip that gives you a taste of the flavor of the show's humor:
