Spiderman upgradesUniversal Orlando: Anyone hear about new 3D glasses?
From N BI just read that Spiderman closed on Feb 8th for it's 4K projection upgrade. Universal also hinted at the use of all new 3D glasses.

I am hoping they will start using the polarized Dolby 3D glasses that have dichroic coatings on the leses. The nice thing about them is they enhance contrast and have slightly curved lenses that help enhance the 3D effect, similar to the curved screen on the Simpsons Ride.
These also come with anti-theft chips installed, which will keep them at the ride where they belong.

From Skipper AdamI can't speak for Dom's Universal facts, but he's right about the cost of the Star Tours glasses. They ain't cheap.

From Rob PastorThe 3D glasses look really COOL. Can't wait to see the new visuals on my May trip. Thanks for the video tie in Dom.

From Potter Team MemberPlease return the 3-d glasses when finishing Spiderman. They cost $10 each and Universal is going to great lengths to keep them from leaving property.

From Dominick DWhen I rode Spiderman Sunday, they had a sign that said something like this:

WARNING: All glasses are tracked and cannot leave the building. Please put them in the bins provided while exiting.
From N BI agree Potter Team Member. By the way, there was a girl named Lawshawna working FJ last time we were there. I wrote an email to Universal customer service about her.

And yes, the email was very positive. She made our final ride a memorable one and I let them know she took care of us like rock stars.
