Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Terminator 2: 3-D, a 4d movie in Hollywood at Universal Studios Florida.
Written by Robert Niles
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.
The attraction has been open almost 20 years now, and just like Terminator 2 the movie, it still not only holds up to today's standards, but exceeds them. The propaganda filled preshow is highly entertaining and the effects during the actual show draw one in. If Universal would upgrade the 3D to the level of Despicable Me's, this attraction would be a 10/10 instead of a 9/10. - Quentin Scruggs
This attraction is an oldie but a goodie. This attraction does show its age and the 3-D visuals are a little blurry when compared to newer, similar attractions. Like the movie itself though, T2:3-D is well done and the combination movie/live show presentation is still very entertaining and well worth the time to watch it. - Manny Barron
This attraction would have likely gotten a a perfection rating had my husband and I been familiar with the storyline. - Michelle Morgan
Amazing blend of live action and 3D. The special effects all worked amazingly well, and had me on the edge of my seat. The 3D was also very convincing, and had me leaning away from whatever was assaulting me. Probably my favorite theme park show. - Bryce McGibeny
It's great they expand the story and they do it in an amazing way. - O T
The pre-show is very outdated but this show is still very good. As of 2013 the ride is still getting a standing ovation at the end of each show. This rides rating is 9.5/10 - Jaiden Cohen
This attraction is starting to feel a bid dated. but you can't miss it if you visit USO. The combination of live actors and special effects is still great and the pre-show is pretty cool. - N B
I never miss Terminator 2: 3-D. Got to love Skynet - Kara Leblanc
A must see for any Terminator fan. A really good way to spend some time in the AC for anyone else. A fun attraction with a good mix of live action, special effects and animatronics. - Eric Orlando
It's clear the show is past it's prime, but even so the combination 3D and practical effects makes it worthwhile. - Jeff Moon
