You're welcomed on to a tour of Cyberdyne Systems (from James Cameron's Terminator movies), but since this is a theme park attraction, you shouldn't be surprised when something goes “terribly wrong.” Soon, you're traveling through time with John Connor and the Terminator as you try to save the world from Skynet. The show blends live actors, a 3D movie, and in-theater special effects, including explosions.
Reprising his role as a time-traveling, good-guy cyborg from the "Terminator" film series, Schwarzenegger's larger-than-life persona grows to even bigger proportions in the unique theme park presentations. Combining a well-known storyline, eye-popping 3-D film footage, in-theater 4-D effects, and live performers who interact with the action on the screen, T2 is an all-out assault on the senses. With amazing blends of live action, 3D, and never seen before special effects. This show will have you on the edge of your seat and will excite you and make you wonder. It's credentials like these that helped push the 12-minute film's budget into the stratosphere. With wild, non-stop action, digital computer innovations, pyrotechnics, and special camera rigs thrown into the mix, this was the most expensive live action movie, per minute of film, ever produced when it first debuted. T2 is a compelling, edge-of-your-seat, giddy experience. It is so engaging, audiences regularly rise and cheer Arnold and the gang with a standing ovation at the film's conclusion. It's also one of the oldest attractions that is still open to this very day, which is pretty awesome! 8/10
It's getting dated but we still go whenever we go. Whatever you do Universal PLEASE don't "update" it to the new Terminator movies. I would rather they replace the whole thing with something else!
I never EVER do not do Terminator in a trip.
Always a great way to get out of the heat with a good show and only slightly dated effects. 7/10
Still packs a punch even though it's slightly dated. Could use some TLC.
