Question:

Is Ripped from the Silver Screen exclusively for Universal Orlando, and Universal Hollywood has its own Halloween theme for HHN, or do both parks have Ripped from the Silver Screen?

I think Dueling Dragons close in the first weeks of January, I do not believe that universal can afford not to exploit the pull of the multitudes of Disney in December.The closure of Dueling Dragons with the not opening of Hogsmeade would people to stop going to the Park. :mickey:

I agree. I really can't see Dueling Dragons closing before the end of the year. January and/or February would make the most sense, then they can have it reopen for the start of spring break or with Harry Potter in the spring.

Hehe. Thanks Robb! (:

The backstory is amazing! I really can not wait. We're going Oct 2! (:

I'm really excited for the passholders VIP thingy though! Chucky and Silver Screens done before 6? Sounds good to me!

Yep, me too on digging The Usher backstory. This idea has a similar cool factor to the undertaker type lead character from a few years ago. I liked that one as well.

Looking forward to all the pictures from the events, especially the stilt walkers. Universal has always done an awesome job on those.

^ Big thanks! =) Where can I find that? Would love to see it.

Just saw the website and Julian Browning is a GREAT and creepy character. LOVE IT!

Also wanted to mention Bloody Mary as another favorite lead character.

EDIT: Aha! Further looking in the Attractions section found it. And that is a smart twist on the traditional Frankenstory. Nice!

Maybe I'm just beating a dead topic here, but really, whats up with this ride. They've had it open for plenty long now to have operations figured out. The ride still breaks down 7 times daily, only 3 of 6 trains on the track, and the moving loading platform seems to have been forgotten about. In addition all of the other media gimmicks seemed to have fallen through the cracks, I have only heard of the single on-ride camera and audio being implemented.

EDIT UPDATE: -updated number of times broken down today from 5-7 times.
-single rider line is ignored.
-only 1 train on course at a time, 2 trains always in station.

We can now officially tag this ride as FAIL!

^There were 5 trains operating when I went a couple of weeks ago, but I agree on the other points.
