7/24/10- UNIVERSAL STUDIOS
So last Wednesday, my cousins (Jennifer, Julia, Vincent) invited me to go to Universal Studios with them on Saturday, which was yesterday, because their dad’s company had this annual picnic thing and tickets and food were free, yada yada yada. So I woke up around 6:50 yesterday, and I THOUGHT the original plan was just us 4, because i thought there were just 4 tickets. But when I got to my cousin’s house, Julia told me there were SIX tickets, and Jennifer wasn’t going to go anymore because she went to work that morning. So we were like, “WHATTT, SIX TICKETS? WE NEED 3 MORE PEOPLE.” Then my mom was like,” OHOHOH I WANT TO GO, I’LL INVITE YOUR DAD TOO.” And I was like, “NOOOOOO!” and my aunt started laughing. So my mom went home to tell my dad, and they were like, “Alright, we’re going!” Then we had ONE more ticket, and neither my aunt nor uncle wanted to go because they were going to be home taking care of my little brother, so Julia was like, “OH LET’S INVITE VU!” (my other cousin) so we called him like a gazillion times until he picked up and he told us he had work. Then Julia went all WHAAAAAAAA and my mom told him to call in sick lolol. He did, so we were like, YEEH WE HAVE 6 PEOPLE NOW. We left at like 10ish and drove towards Universal nonstop. When we got in, we were like omgogmgomgomgom what to go on first. And I texted biggy on which rides I went on because he wanted me to tell him my reactions, LOL.
Shrek 4d- We got in line for the show for like 30 minutes, and when the doors opened for everyone to take theirs seats, we had none -_-. So one of the workers took all the families who didn’t have a seat into another room and gave every family a fast pass :D. We waited until the show ended, so we can see the next one, and before we went back into the auditorium, my mom and cousin went up to one of the guy workers and were like, “Wanna hook me up with another fastpass?” So after that, we had like 5 fastpasses, (one fast pass can hold up to 4 people.) The show was alright, and after that we went on the studio tour.
Studio Tour- We saw the wait time = 65 minutes, and we were like, omgat. So we used one of the fast passes and passed like 100+ people =D. The workers only took one, because we told them we only had one, even though we had six people LOL. I LOVED THAT THING. It’s not really a ride, just a tour around Universal and the sets of all the TV shows, but it’s so interesting. I recorded everything during the 45 minute ride. And the King Kong 3d 360 thing was so cool, i screamed like a little fucker. I recorded that too, and we took an extra pair of 3D glasses, so I put the glasses in front of the camera and it WORKED! But you couldn’t really see anything because i shook the camera too much and I screamed a lot.But it was trippppyyy.
Simpson’s Ride- MY FAVORITE RIDE. We used our fastpasses on ALL the rides because throughout the day, we had like 8 fast passes, and each ride had a wait time of about an hour or more. So groups of 8 went into this room, and before you went on a ride, you had to watch a safety video, blahblah. Then after the safety video, you go into this car like thing, four people in front, four in the back. Since we had 6, there was this couple who was also with us and it was kind of awkward lol. I ran towards the first row because first rows are always the best. After everyone seated, the car is lifted up into this huge room, and you look to your right and left you see the cars of the other rooms too, which is pretty cool. Even though it wasn’t a real real coaster, it was pretty trippy and pretty real. We went on that ride twice, once in the afternoon and another time at night.
Jurassic Park- omgat, that ride was soaking wet -_-. They changed it so much since last time I went there. So in general, you go into this lifeboat thing and venture through dinosaur’s land and get wet from the water drips and crap. But at the end, you go into a dark building, and your lifeboat goes up and there’s this 84 feet vertical drop, which you use to escape a gigantor t-rex. And after you drop, 5000000 gallons of water splashes on you, and everyone’s like JFA;OIJVLKAAAJ D:<. But the ride was alright.
The Mummy- My second favorite ride! It would’ve been my first, but the ride is too short ): So it’s kind of like space mountain, except this is mummy themed. And it’s way shorter. And there’s this one part where “bugs” crawl across your feet and everyone’s stomping their feet, LOL. But first you enter this one room, and this dead mummy guy gives you a curse, and then a gust of wind blows towards you when the doors open, and then it’s like total darkness and everyone starts screaming. Then you hear evil laughter and bugs crawling but you can’t really see much except the light up holograms because the whole ride is super dark. I sat next to my cousin Vu, and throughout the ride, he’s like, “AHHHAHAHAH.” I couldn’t tell if he was screaming or laughing ROFLMAO. Basically, the ride is go forwards, then backwards. Still fun, still fun.
After that we watched four more shows, Animal Actors, Terminator 2:3D, Water world, and Special Effects. Special Effects was alright, but my favorite was either Water World, or Animal Actors.
House of Horrors- I HATE HATE HATE HATE THAT HOUSE. I almost shit my pants. LOL. It was pretty scary, because while you walk through it, monsters pop out of nowhere and start screaming at you. So before you walk inside, a worker tells you, “The live actors are not allowed to touch you.” and I’m like -phew-. But then during the walk, this werewolf with huge ass claws pops out and I start screaming my ass off and yelling to him. “YOU’RE NOT ALLOWED TO TOUCH ME, YOU’RE NOT ALLOWED TO TOUCH ME!” And he starts reaching his arm to the other side of the rail and trying to block my way when I’m trying to walk past him. Then into this room, there was another werewolf and frankenstein on both sides of the rails, and when my mom was walking past, both of the monsters put their arms out and she was like AAAHHHHHH and fell to the ground. Vincent and I walked past them and were like HIGH FIVE, and they gave it to us LOLOL. In the beginning Vu was all walking alone into the house in front of us, but during the middle-ish he pushed Julia to the front and walked behind, lmfao. In the beginning, I made Vincent give me a piggy back ride because I knew things were going to pop out of nowhere, but he kept going into the random scary rooms because he knew I was scared -_-.
After the House of Horrors, we went on the Simpson’s and the Mummy ride again, and then we headed home because at that time it was getting dark. During the ride, everyone fell asleep except for my dad, because he was driving, and my mom because she was talking on the phone. We stopped by for pho around 11:15 and didn’t get home until around midnight. Overall I had a lot of fun ;D
We took more than 200 pictures, I’ll upload some later.
AND THAT WHOLE DAY, I DIDN’T EVEN SEE TANYA ONCE, LOLOL.
