    World Expo at Universal Studios Florida - Pictures

    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!

    World Expo 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. World Expo is an area of two large attractions, each housed in very different large buildings, grouped together because both have a common thread of being themed to amusement park/world's fair pavilions.

    The Simpsons Ride:
    A wonderfully tongue-in-cheek ode to a fictitious amusement park inspired by characters from this animated TV series, this motion-simulator movie is housed in a structure decorated with a purposely tacky riot of details that creates the entrance to Krustyland!















    Men In Black Alien Attack:
    The park's most successfully themed attraction, indoors and out, is this simulated retro-futuristic world's fair pavilion that turns out to be a front for the movie series characters of Men In Black. Visitors tour through the slick modern headquarters of the agency before boarding a dark ride that takes them through the streets of the city to shoot alien targets.





























    MIB Gear Shop and nearby kiosks:
    The attraction's exit empties into a gift shop, and several kiosks nearby extend the theme.





















    Enjoy!

    I love the Men in Black ride. It has one of the best queues anywhere and the ride is a huge improvement over Buzz Lightyear at the Magic Kingdom.
