2. How are they going to make sure said glasses don't break between the time The tram tour stars and and time they go into Kong
Most theme park 3D glasses are pretty indestructible. Parks don't like paying for replacements, so they buy ones that you can beat the heck out of and will still (for the most part) work.
I'm not sure what that commercial was for. No mention of Kong. Barely a mention of USH. I guess it's supposed to make me go to their website and get more info?
Kong has long been a favourite at Universal Studios. I was against it being withdrawn from Orlando ,despite it's replacement being so good, so I'm pleased to see plans for an updated short version at it's Hollywood venue.
3D seems to be the popular way to go with attractions of this type and, if done well, it should provide excellent entertainment. I always thought that the short format as part of the Studio Tour was never enough to do the subject justice. But then I also felt that about the Jaws section of the tour. They will need to maximise all the effects in a limited time frame which may not be that easy.
Anyway I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out and whether, if it proves successful, we might see a return of Kong , in some format, to Orlando.
The teaser trailer achieves exactly what it was designed to do. Stimulate interest without giving anything away. Be sure to look out for more revealing adverts soon.
I don't know, but Avatar in 3D worked fine for my eyes, but it's not like things were supposed to come out of the screen in the extreme levels of the attractions. Can anyone confirm if it's a different type of 3D?
I'm hoping the Return of King Kong does well despite my eyeballs not working the same.
I saw the Universal sign + massive destruction and immediately guessed "King Kong coming back to the Studio Tour."
At the end of the commercial, the "King Kong" screen appeared. Brian yelped and high-fived me, then asked "how did you know?"
I said, "Dude, you know what website I run for a living, right?"
