Today we've got a great update for you from Universal Studios Hollywood, and some Fast and Furious Construction pics and video! We spent about 13 hours at Universal Studios Hollywood and CityWalk last week as it was my son and daughter in-law's first time to Super Nintendo World (and riding Secret Life of Pets). We even capped off the day with an incredible dinner at Toothsome.
Let's head into the park for some fun!
After spending about 4 hours inside Super Nintendo World we headed up to the rest of the park, which allowed me to get some awesome Fast and Furious pics and video.
There's also a whole bunch of new universal monsters merchandise in the park, as well as a lot of Felix The Cat Merchandise for some reason. Even more than Fast and Furious which only has one little stand in the main store.
Will be interesting to see if Fast and Furious merchandise increases as the ride opening gets closer.
And lastly in this update, a few pics of our Toothsome dinner. So good.
Today we've got some great pics of Fast and Furious at Universal Studios Hollywood. Friend of the site Brian sent these over this morning before SoCal get's pounded with 3 days of rain.
The coaster is looking amazing and the amount of work they've done lately is incredible.
