After a 21 year run, the Terminator 2: 3-D show at Universal Studios Florida saw its last shows on Sunday, October 8, 2017. The show featured a mix of live actors, special effects, and 3D film.
Universal has not announced any specifics, but says the show will be replaced by “an all-new live action experience based on a high-energy Universal franchise.” The new attraction is set to open in 2019.
So far Universal has only said the following about the long-running show’s replacement:
Terminator 2: 3-D at Universal Studios Florida will run its last shows on Sunday, October 8 to make way for an all-new live action experience based on a high-energy Universal franchise. It will open in 2019. This is one of many exciting new experiences coming to Universal Orlando Resort as we continue our epic growth. Stay tuned – more details will be released soon.
Rumors for the show’s replacement have varied from Star Trek to Jason Bourne. It’s possible the new attraction will be a spy-thriller action show based on either James Bond if the studio can secure the character’s rights, or Jason Bourne if they cannot. The show will likely still utilize live actors, special effects, and once again, screens, similar to the show it is replacing. However, new indications are that it will not be in 3D like its predecessor.
The T2: 3-D show closed several years ago at Universal Studios Hollywood to make way for Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem in that park. It remains open at Universal Studios Japan.
