Subtitled, "Battle Across Time," T2:3D is a production of director James Cameron's studio, Lightstorm Entertainment. Cameron, the director of "Avatar" and "Titantic," as well as the Terminator films, co-wrote and co-directed this attraction, which the New York Times called the most expensive film ever made on a cost per-minute basis when it debuted at Universal Studios Florida in 1996.

Terminator stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Edward Furlong and Robert Patrick reprise their roles in the film, which arrived at Universal Studios Hollywood in 1999.

You're on a tour of Cyberdyne Systems, where the company's PR director introduces a promotional video in the pre-show's "reception area." But Sarah and John Connor interrupt, to let you know that they're, well, about to blow up the building so maybe you'd better high-tail it out of there.

The Cyberdyne flack pooh-poohs the disruption and ushers you into the theater for the main show, presented in 3D. Needless to say, a series of increasingly complex Terminators show up, the Connors attack and lots of stuff gets blown up.

T2:3D closed on December 31, 2012, to make way for a rumored Despicable Me attraction.
