2010 Best Theme Park Attraction nominee: Universal Studios Florida's Universal Horror Make-up Show
Written by Robert Niles
We continue our daily "off season" tributes to the best of the best in the theme park industry with a shout-out to the Universal Horror Make-up Show at Universal Studios Florida, the 12th seed in the Best Live Show bracket of the 2010 Best Theme Park Attraction Tournament.Tweet
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:
