I thought we went to Universal to see how and where movies were made. Not to watch another movie. You can't even pass it off as a fake set like they do for The Mummy. All the set pieces of the tour fits in the how category.
Earthquake - To show how to create a set, completely thrash it and put it back together again within a matter of minutes.
Mexico Flood - How film rain works.
Jaws - How animatronics worked for the Jaws series, along with how fire, water, blood, and on water sets work.
The Falling Bridge - Pretty much the same as Earthquake.
The original King Kong - Once again Animatronics for the 80s version of King Kong and how they fit on practical sound stages.
The Red Sea - How a parting Red Sea effect could work (although I've never seen this in a movie nor the Ten Commandments).
Fast and Furious - How action works with bullet holes, fire and cars (even though I've never seen a car on those "dancing systems", I'm sure it has been or will be used some day)
And then we get down to this new King Kong and it goes in the "ride" category. The building isn't even made up to look like a jungle so we're tricked into believing we somehow stumbled into the jungle of the backlot and that's where King Kong lives (like stumbling into the cursed Mummy soundstage). And then we put on 3D glasses, which aren't apart of any other part of the Studio Tour and watch a movie where the track moves. We can argue it's to show how 3D works in films but whenever are there movies where you're in a 360 environment with the entire theater moving around? I'm hoping after leaving the show building, there will be an explanation of how 3D elements work into film or else I'm going to be disappointed more than I am now. They should've moved this idea onto the lower lot somewhere near Revenge of the Mummy so we can just have a King Kong ride apart of the theme park instead of a ride apart of the Studio Tour, which is supposed to be educational and fun, not JUST fun (although I don't think that's the worst thing in the world, I just want the Studio Tour to stay consistent).
