    This guy is wrong in his books. Many of the attractions at the original Universal Orlando resort came from the Universal Hollywood Theme Park in CA. It was open for years before Orlando. So to say Orlando was the first time they built rides is just inaccurate. Make me wonder about the rest of the book.

    If you’re going to accuse me of being wrong in my books, get your facts straight. The only attractions at Universal Studios Hollywood prior to the debut of Universal Studios Florida were elements of the Studio Tour (which is a tram tour, not a ride) and various shows. There were NO rides.

    To quote Peter Alexander, who was Universal’s only Show Producer at the start of the project: “They had never before built any kind of ride, let alone a Disney-quality experience.” And he worked on the Universal Studios Hollywood attractions.

    I spent many, many hours researching this book. Frankly, you don’t know what you’re talking about (your suggestion on Facebook that Jurassic Park: The Ride opened before Universal Studios Florida demonstrates this). I suggest you read it yourself.
