So yesterday I took what will be my last ride on JAWS ever. It was a bitter sweet day. I know that with every sunsetting of an attraction, a new experience is on the horizon, but that being said, I am really sad that JAWS is closing. I love this ride. I feel that it has been Universal's Jungle Cruise equivalent. Just like the Jungle Cruise your experience depended on your skipper/captain.
Over the years I have seen JAWS in various states, and this past year it has been in the best condition, with missing effects fixed (Ring of Fire) and enthusiastic skippers delighting guests.
But all good things must come to an end, and while JAWS may no longer be at USF, I will always hold a special place in my heart for this amazing attraction.
So Rest In Peace old friend, and may I visit you in the Yeseterland in the sky someday.
