    Whoopi takes over USH, actually becomes a Tour Guide

    That's right, heck, instead of just seeing her like 9 times on video, if you got on the right (or is that the WRONG) tram....

    Whoopi Goldberg Acts as Tour Guide for Universal Studios

    Whoopi Goldberg thrilled visitors to Universal Studios in Hollywood last week when she took over the theme park's famous Backlot Tour and acted as a guide. The comedienne/actress has recorded a new video guide for the backstage trek at the park, which attracts 125 million visitors every year, and she launched the initiative by getting up close and personal to fans.

    Goldberg hopped on board a tram full of surprised tourists and knowledgeably navigated them through the Backlot Tour, offering anecdotes, jokes and film information, pointing out sets where she'd filmed some of her movies.

    The new video is part of a revamp planned for this summer, which also includes new attractions like the CSI: Crime Scene Investigation set and a chase sequence inspired by new film The Fast And The Furious: Tokyo Drift.

    Meanwhile, movie moguls like Robert Zemeckis and Sydney Pollack have been brought on board to help train up new tour guides and actors employed by the theme park.

    When will Whoopi show up at Golden Dreams with a commandeered Universal tram, and offer guests a tour of the Disneyland Resort?

    So not only did see act as tour guide, did she still show the tourists the video of her as well??!!

    I'll say it: "Too much Whoopi"

    I still can't believe how bad the fast and the furious portion of that tour seems to be. What a waste of money.

    My exact words from a previous thread about the Tram Tour.

    I can't imagine having her on the monitor AND in person behind the microphone...

    I also expressed my displeasure with the F&F in a previous thread. After watching the "stage area" being built, and hearing all of the hoopla over it, the wind was let out of our sails after we first saw it.

    We have seen it a half dozen times since then, and our feelings have changed a little, but I think that we were just expecting a lot more, hence the disappointment.

    You won't find bigger fans of USH than us, but we're still disappointed, just not as much...

    Like many on this board, I was underwhelmed by the "Fast and the Furious" portion of the tram ride. However, my wife thought it was really interesting how they "could make those cars do that". So I guess, once again, to each his (or her) own.
