Universal Studios Parade & Nighttime Show

3 Apr

Universal’s Superstar Parade and Universal’s Cinematic Spectacular: 100 Years of Movie Memories will debut on 8th May.

The daily parade will feature characters from Despicable Me, Hop, SpongeBob SquarePants and Dora the Explorer. There will be new state of the art floats, along with dancers that will interact with spectators. The floats will be also be transformed into meet-and-greet areas for the characters at other points during the day.

The end-of-night Cinematic Spectacular will spotlight scenes from almost 200 films, projected onto screens on the Universal Studios lagoon. This production will be flanked by pyrotechnics and synchronized-fountain action. Universal says it will run year-round except “during annual and special events.”

Cinematic Spectacular will be narrated by Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman. Its story “will take guests on an emotional journey through epic cinematic moments filled with heroes, horror, laughter, good vs. evil and triumph,” Universal said.

In addition to the launch of these the Superstar Parade and Cinematic Spectacular, Despicable Me Minion Mayhem will be opening this Summer, a ride under construction in the building that housed the Jimmy Neutron Nicktoon Blast.

The theme park also has construction walls up around the area that was the site of the Jaws ride, which closed earlier this year, but it has not made official announcements about what will go there. So watch this space!
