Published: April 24, 2008 at 8:53 AMI agree about Water World. I don't usually see most shows at theme parks, but when I went to USH I had the Front of the Line passes. Since you get priority seating with those and it had received good reviews I figured why not. The pre-show was really fun, and the show itself was spectacular.
Published: April 24, 2008 at 9:09 AMWhat about Revenge of the Mummy? From what I hear, everyone likes the one in Orlando better, but I probably favor this one because it was the first "coaster" I went on and the whole stopping and going backwards thing freaked me out. At any rate, I was just curious about why this attraction was left off.
And yes, Water World is a blast. When we went last year during our vacation, we got the Front of the Line pass as well, and one of the actors soaked us big time. We were near the front and he filled his bucket of water and literally walked over and just threw it on us, all before the show even started. They really mess with the guests, too, so it's a blast. We were so glad it was a hot day!
Published: April 24, 2008 at 9:42 AMThis park's a tough one, not because of a huge number of attractions, but because of the length of the shows and the hassle and time to go back and forth from the upper and lower lots.
Mummy was the next attraction on this list, the one that just missed the cut. It's okay, but pales in comparison to Orlando, and isn't as worthy as the other ones on this list.
If you wanted to make this a longer day, I would do Mummy after Jurassic Park, then come up and break for lunch before doing WaterWorld and T2.
