Terminator 2: 3-D at Universal Studios Florida is set to close permanently after its last shows on Sunday, October 8, 2017. The show opened in 1996 and features a mix of live-action actors, 3-D film, and special effects.
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.
The following message appears on the official Universal Orlando website’s attraction page:
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.
We’re still waiting on an official announcement for the new attraction that will be replacing this long-time show. Universal says it will be based on a “high-energy Universal franchise,” but that isn’t much to go on. Rumors are currently going around that the new attraction will be a spy-thriller action show based on either James Bond or Jason Bourne. The show would utilize live actors, special effects, and once again, screens, similar to the show it is replacing.
We will keep you updated with all the news and rumors for the new attraction as they become available. In the meantime, be sure to visit while you can to enjoy this cinematic masterpiece, one last time before it’s hasta la vista, baby!
