A little confession. For the longest time, I have been dreaming of going on Jaws the ride at Universal Studios (Florida) but going to the States requires a lotta money. I was also disappointed when Singapore’s USS did not include this ride.
The ultimate heartbreak though, came when I learned last month that Jaws :The Ride, will be taken down and replaced by… *sigh* yet another Harry Potter thingy.
I just came across this posting from /film which, I guess is the next best thing to actually be on the actual ride itself.
To the younger crowd, the ride may look pretty lame. But personally I thought it looked pretty awesome. The performance by the staff, the ‘story’ of the cruise, all these seems really enjoyable. (another confession, I really enjoyed the Jurassic Park ride which is quite similar to this)
Alas, gone are the days where performance and gimmicks are replaced by 3D simulators ala Transformers Rides, which I feel just feels less personal.
Rest in Peace, Jaws. Though we never met. I already miss you.
