My picture threads consist of images I have taken that focus on the architecture, landscape architecture, planning, design, and theming of the facilities highlighted. They may also contain short descriptions and commentary, but will not focus on construction progress or special events or memorabilia or food selections or my traveling companions. Hopefully these threads are a good introduction for those who have not seen these places yet. All killer, no filler!
Hollywood at Universal Studios Florida photographed in November 2008:
Universal Orlando features two theme parks, one of which is the movie-themed Universal Studios Florida that is divided into 6 areas with very different environments, several of which can be further subdivided due to their incoherent combinations. Hollywood is the most coherent, with a single angled street that branches from the park entrance and is lined with recreations of famous buildings from the early years of the movie town's history, filled with shops and dining and a few attractions.
Terminator 2: 3-D:
This large theater plays a 3-D movie that features live action and special effects, set in a replica of a modern corporate showcase. The content of this attraction is completely incongruous with the exterior.
