New at Universal Hollywood

Universal Studios Hollywood is set for a brand new dinosaur-themed thrill ride, with the 2019 opening of the “Jurassic World Ride” which will replace the current “Jurassic Park — The Ride” after a complete makeover. The existing attraction will close on 3 September this year for a total reimagining, with Universal promising enhanced storytelling, state-of-the-art technology and never-before-seen dinosaurs.

Universal’s newest additions include “Kung Fu Panda: The Emperor’s Quest” which opened just last month. The adventure takes guests on a journey combining projection mapping and LED lighting effects to provide a highly immersive and engaging theatre-style experience. Also new is the “Animation Studio,” a retail outlet featuring a collection of merchandise including the popular Hello Kitty character. A range of park-exclusive items are on offer as well as delectable Hello Kitty treats which are prepared daily. Other merchandise features Universal titles such as Jaws, ET, Back to the Future and more.
