Imagine your footsteps in freshly fallen snow on the streets of Hogsmeade, Diagon Alley, and London. Listening to the Frog Choir croaking to the beat of Christmas carols while you gulp down warm butterbeer. Enjoy this holiday magic only at Christmas in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando. Experience this dreamy magic anytime from November 13 to January 2, 2022.
Jurassic World VelociCoaster at Universal Orlando Resort’s Islands of Adventure theme park unleashes Florida’s fastest, tallest, and most intense launch coaster ever created, catapulting riders 155 feet into the air at extreme speeds up to 70 mph while racing alongside a ferocious Velociraptor pack, inspired by the blockbuster “Jurassic World” films.
A new live-action stunt show, the Bourne Stuntacular, is waiting to thrill you at Universal Studios Florida. This attraction hopes to herald a new ago of stunt shows as it replaces the Terminator 2 3-D show. As you enter Jason Bourne’s world, your senses will go into overload as you desperately try to separate real live action from cinema magic.
Bringing Down Cyberdyne
Earlier this year, Universal Studios said goodbye to Terminator 2 3-D. This theatrical attraction blended a heavy dose of 3-D movie technology with live action. As the building housing this attraction removed Cyberdyne from the façade (ironically the whole point of the Terminator movies—bring down Cyberdyne), Universal sought to strategically capitalize on wild popularity of the Jason Bourne movie franchise.
An Unexpected Delay
Final development and release of the ride has been prolonged due to the unprecedented global pandemic. At the time of this writing, the park remains closed for the safety of guests and its staff. We hope the park will open soon—when it’s safe. Until then, the Bourne Stuntacular awaits to rise from the ashes of the Terminator 2 3-D attraction.
As Secretive as the CIA
Production has been under tight wraps and as we await the delayed release date. We still don’t know much about this new attraction. The gift shop has been open for a while, but that hasn’t revealed any secrets of the attraction. What we know at this time is that the Bourne Stuntacular blends live action with theatrical magic supported by pyrotechnics and other special effects. NBC Today Show gave us a tiny sneak peek as one of their anchors joined the cast of stunt actors in a massive fight scene. More clues came from a vlogger who recorded the sounds of a test run while he stood next to the exit doors in the gift shop. This tiny hint of what the show could be like included muffled dialogue, sounds of gunfire and explosions, and the motion of the exit doors “exploding” outward at the end of the show.
Rosen Inn International, a Hotel Full of Great Features
As we wait to return to normalcy, we also wait to get back to the things we enjoy. Spring was essentially shut down in Florida and for a good reason. We hope summer will see the return of the fun Florida is best known for, of course, only when it’s deemed safe to get back to life as usual. In the meantime, Rosen Inn International stands by waiting to offer you a safe, affordable place to stay.
Our location can’t be beat: a half a block away from I-4 and minutes away from Universal Orlando Resort. Comfortable accommodations ensure you a relaxing stay. Whenever you’re ready to venture out, we’re ready to book your guestroom. All you have to do is click the button in the upper right of the screen to start your next Orlando vacation.
Holiday of a lifetime
This hotel is perfect for going anywhere in Florida, it is central to all the parks, malls, and being on International Drive it has all the restaurant and bars close at hand. The rooms are of a lovely size with fridge, microwave, coffee machine and safe. The beds were very comfortable and always clean and tidy. The room was spotless.
Once again staying at the Rosen
We have stayed at this hotel literally 15-20 different times from away back when it was the Rodeway and our last trip being in November 2019. It is a great hotel for couples, families, whatever. The staff are great, it is clean and any rooms we have stayed in lead onto an indoor corridor providing extra security. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and have booked my flights for returning to International Drive in November 2020 and will probably stay in the Rosen International.
