(ORLANDO, FL – February 22, 2018) - Hard Rock Hotel at Universal Orlando’s newly-redesigned Future Rock Star Suites let guests perform under the lights on their very own stage. Designed to capture the excitement of being on tour, these two-room suites feature applause-worthy floor to ceiling details, including a stage with liquid flooring and lights, a twinkling starlight canopy over the beds and brand new Hard Rock memorabilia from today’s superstars.
 
Each suite features an item once donned by a music celebrity and this marks the first time memorabilia has been installed inside a guest room at Hard Rock Hotel at Universal Orlando.  Every Future Rock Star Suite consists of a king room that connects through a “stage door” to a room with two twin beds and roadie case-inspired furniture.  
 
"We designed these suites for tweens, teens and any kid who ever dreamed of performing on stage for thousands of adoring fans," says Carlton Hudson, managing director at Hard Rock Hotel at Universal Orlando. "The suites bring that dream to life for the entire family with everything a true rock star needs to put on an unforgettable show. Plus, we brought in pieces of Hard Rock’s priceless memorabilia collection to amplify the experience of staying in these one-of-a-kind suites.”    
 
Hard Rock is recognized globally for world-class entertainment, stylish and contemporary design and unparalleled service.  Guests of all Hard Rock Hotels enjoy an experience that infuses music as the key differentiator.  Hard Rock’s The Sound of Your Stay is a complimentary all-encompassing in-room music amenity program that provides access to experiences for guests to jam out on a selection of Fender guitars or tune into the resurgence of vinyl records while listening to them on a Crosley turntable.  
 
At Universal Orlando Resort, guests of Hard Rock Hotel are just a short walk, complimentary water taxi or shuttle bus ride away from all three Universal Orlando Resort theme parks. Guests receive an exclusive package of theme park benefits, including free Universal Express Unlimited ride access (theme park admission required) to Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure as well as Early Park Admission to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and Universal’s Volcano Bay one hour before the theme parks open.

Voodoo Doughnut to Bring its Sinfully Delicious Flavors to Universal Orlando Resort this Spring http://media.universalorlando.com/PressRelease/detail.aspx?id=64499&ct=27752
The doughnut shop with a cult following is arriving east of the Mississippi at Universal CityWalk.
 
 
Who: Kenneth “Cat Daddy” Pogson and Tres Shannon created Voodoo Doughnut in Portland, Oregon in 2003. The pair had enjoyed experimenting with unique flavors to create eccentric pastries and they turned their passion into the phenomenon that is Voodoo Doughnut. As they say, the rest is history.
 
What: Voodoo Doughnut will open at Universal CityWalk, Universal Orlando Resort’s entertainment and dining complex. Loved for its sinfully delicious creations, Voodoo Doughnut will feature signature originals and one-of-a-kind delectables such as the Dirt Doughnut, the Bacon Maple Bar, Grape Ape and, of course, Voodoo Doll doughnuts.
 
When: The new Voodoo Doughnut location is set to open at Universal CityWalk in Orlando this spring. Stay tuned at UniversalOrlando.com, the Universal Orlando blog and social channels for more information.
 
Where: Since their Portland, Oregon origins, Shannon and Pogson have continued to spread their unique flavors with several new locations including a few more in Oregon and shops in Denver, Colorado; Austin, Texas and CityWalk at Universal Studios Hollywood. The new location at Universal Orlando will be the first location east of the Mississippi. The shop will feature the same eclectic pink theming and irreverent names that can be found in current Voodoo Doughnut locations. It will be located next to NBC Sports Grill & Brew, just steps away from the iconic Universal Globe and Universal Studios Florida entrance. 
 
Why: Delicious doughnuts… Need we say more! Your mouth should be watering at this point.
 
And remember, Good Things Come in Pink Boxes.

ORLANDO, Fla. (September 15, 2017) – The nation’s premier Halloween event, Halloween Horror Nights, is now open at Universal Orlando Resort – with more event nights and terrifying frights than ever before.


This year, Halloween Horror Nights presents the most unearthly and macabre collection of terrors called The Festival of the Deadliest. This ancient tradition has taken root inside Universal Studios Florida and is filled with hellish wonders that are hard to resist and impossible to escape. This ghastly collection of madmen and monsters from beyond the veil have joined together to revel in firelight and create the ultimate afterlife of fright. And this is just the beginning.   

 

Unimaginable horrors come to life in nine disturbingly-real haunted houses based on some of the most horrifying legends in pop culture. Guests will:


    • Feel the wrath of the disturbing “Raspers” and infamous serial killer Bloody Face from Asylum, fearsome Salem witches and their bloody rivalry within Coven, and the ghosts of the blood moon in Roanoke from FX’s groundbreaking anthology “American Horror Story”
    • Succumb to the overwhelming “shine” and the murderous ghosts inhabiting the eerie Overlook Hotel from “Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining”
    • Fight to survive “Jigsaw’s” scariest game yet, featuring infamous traps from the legendary film series and the upcoming eighth installment JIGSAW, inside “SAW: The Games of Jigsaw”
    • Fend off demonic Deadites alongside Ash Williams and his trusty chainsaw from the STARZ Original Series “Ash vs Evil Dead”
    • Attempt to escape the clutches of the menacing demon Bughuul from the Sinister franchise; a gang of bloodthirsty home invaders from the inaugural installment of The Purge; and Insidious’ paralyzing Lipstick-Face Demon along with the hauntings from Dr. Rainier’s nightmarish childhood in “The Horrors of Blumhouse”
    • Step inside the twisted minds behind the nation’s premier Halloween event in four haunted houses based on spine-chilling original stories

And there’s even more horror lurking in the streets of Universal Studios Florida with five unique “scare zones,” two of which are based on two celebrated horror films –Trick ‘r Treat and The Purge – as well as three haunting original concepts.


Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights will also feature two incredible live shows. This year, Academy of Villains returns for a second consecutive year with an all-new show, ACADEMY OF VILLAINS: AFTERLIFE – incorporating fearsome elements from this year’s Festival of the Deadliest “scare zone.” Plus, after 26 years of Excellent Halloween Adventures, Bill and Ted are bringing their Farewell Tour to Halloween Horror Nights to review this year’s most outrageous moments.

For a record-breaking 34 select nights through November 4, guests can experience theme park thrills by day and terrifying horror film chills by night at Halloween Horror Nights. For more information, visit www.HalloweenHorrorNights.com/Orlando.


Universal Studios’ “Halloween Horror Nights” is the ultimate Halloween event. For more than 20 years, guests from around the world have visited Halloween Horror Nights in Orlando and Hollywood to become victims of their own horror film. The streets of each coast’s event are transformed into highly-themed scare zones where menacing “scare-actors” lunge from every darkened corner. Multiple movie-quality haunted houses are erected throughout the event, based on everything from iconic slasher films to hit horror television series to haunting original stories.

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., ORLANDO, Fla. (August 29, 2017) – Jason Blum, one of today’s most prolific producers of contemporary horror films, brings his signature movies to life in the uniquely distinctive “The Horrors of Blumhouse” maze at this year’s “Halloween Horror Nights” event at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort, beginning Friday, September 15.


Based on The Purge, Sinister and Insidious franchises, as well as the upcoming thriller Happy Death Day, Blumhouse Productions (Split, Get Out, Whiplash), is teaming with the creative minds behind the nation’s most intense and immersive Halloween event to unleash three twisted Blumhouse films in one bone-chilling experience at each Halloween destination. 

 

At Universal Studios Hollywood, legions of terrified guests will come face-to-face with the most iconic and unnerving moments from the blockbuster The Purge franchise, Sinister movies and soon-to-be released Happy Death Day. In The Purge, guests will attempt to survive the night as they are immersed in the film’s depraved world, where all crime is declared legal as part of the government’s annually sanctioned 12-hour Purge. In what can be described as a living trailer for Happy Death Day, guests will experience a deja-vu scenario as they are forced to relive the last day of their lives over and over again in an attempt to escape a masked killer. The final nightmare will unmask itself in Sinister, where guests will encounter an ancient pagan deity who is determined to trap them in the sordid shadow world of the dead…for all eternity.

 

“It’s a privilege to collaborate with Jason Blum and his team at Blumhouse Productions to create ‘The Horrors of Blumhouse,’” said John Murdy, Creative Director at Universal Studios Hollywood and Executive Producer of “Halloween Horror Nights.”  “The decisive, inventive way in which he interprets underlying issues plaguing today’s society into his films provides us with a plethora of content to create truly captivating, one-of-a-kind modern horror experiences for our guests.”

 

Upon entering “The Horrors of Blumhouse” maze at Universal Orlando Resort, guests will attempt to survive three of the most menacing anthologies in the Blumhouse assemblage. First, guests will face the horror of becoming stars in the next home murder movie of the menacing demon Bughuul, from the infamous Sinister franchise. Then, they’ll run for their lives to escape the gang of bloodthirsty home invaders from the first installment of The Purge saga.  Finally, guests will be thrust into the Further from the Insidious legend, where they’ll come face-to-face with the paralyzing Lipstick-Face Demon from Chapter 1 and witness Dr. Elise Rainier’s own personal hauntings from her nightmarish childhood in a first-look at Insidious: Chapter 4 – in theaters January 5, 2018.

 

“We’re thrilled to bring the terrifying vision of Jason Blum and the Blumhouse Productions team to life on an even grander scale at Halloween Horror Nights 2017,” said Charles Gray, Show Director for Creative Development, Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando Resort. “He is the modern voice of horror, whose films run the gamut of intense, in-your-face terror – and this year, we’re taking our guests deeper into the horrific world of Blumhouse than ever before.” 

 

“We are so excited to expand our collaboration with the terrific creative team at ‘Halloween Horror Nights’ this year,” commented Blum. “With ‘The Horrors of Blumhouse’ maze, people will be able to fully immerse themselves into the cinematic worlds of our most terrifying films – with bone-chilling results.”

 

Universal Studios’ “Halloween Horror Nights” is the ultimate Halloween event. For more than 20 years, guests from around the world have visited Halloween Horror Nights in Hollywood and Orlando to become victims inside their own horror film. The streets of each coast’s event are transformed into highly-themed scare zones where menacing “scare-actors” lunge from every darkened corner.

Universal Orlando Reveals New Details on the Terrifying Scare Zones Coming to Halloween Horror Nights 2017 http://media.universalorlando.com/PressRelease/detail.aspx?id=62530&ct=27752

The Nation’s Premier Halloween Event Will Feature Frighteningly

Authentic “Scare Zones” Based on Iconic Horror Films Trick ‘r Treat and The Purge

Along with Two Mind-Blowing Live Shows



ORLANDO, Fla. (August 17, 2017) – Beginning September 15, Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights will bring unimaginable horrors to life in five spine-chilling “scare zones” filled with menacing scareactors that stalk guests’ as their prey.

 

This year, these horrifying street experiences will live within a collection of the most unearthly and macabre terrors called The Festival of the Deadliest. From the depths where nightmares are born, this horrifying “scare zone” is an ancient tradition filled with hellish wonders that are hard to resist and impossible to escape. This ghastly collection of madmen and monsters from beyond the veil have joined together to revel in firelight and create the ultimate afterlife of fright. And this is just the beginning.    

 

Once guests enter this hallowed celebration of blood and bone, their nightmares will never end as they’ll attempt to survive two unique “scare zones” based on two celebrated horror films – iconic Halloween film Trick ‘r Treat and popular film franchise The Purge – as well as two additional original “scare zones” reaped from the twisted minds of Universal Orlando’s Entertainment Team. Joining these horrific street experiences are nine disturbingly real haunted houses and two outrageous live shows – creating the ultimate Halloween event that no soul can survive.  


    • Trick ‘r Treat: Inspired by the iconic horror film from Legendary Pictures and directed by Michael Dougherty, guests will be thrust into the traditions of Halloween with an authentic showcase to celebrate the haunted holiday. Surrounded by jack-o’-lanterns and door steps awaiting trick-or-treaters, the infamous Sam will be lurking in the shadows to strictly enforce the rules of Halloween – and those who disobey will pay the price…
    • The Purge: An American tradition returns to the streets of Halloween Horror Nights with the annual Purge set to commence. This gory “scare zone” will feature the return of fan-favorite characters from the film saga and the notorious victim auction whose bidders want nothing more than to exercise their right to Purge.
    • INVASION!: Guests will become the grotesque human experiments of fearless alien scientists who continue to plan the preeminent destruction of planet Earth.
    • Altars of Horror: Guests will come face-to-face with some of the most horrifying characters found in this year’s assemblage of haunted mazes – based on iconic horror films and terrifying hit TV shows.

Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights will also feature two incredible live shows. This year, Academy of the Villains returns for a second consecutive year with an all-new show, ACADEMY OF VILLAINS: AFTERLIFE – incorporating fearsome elements from this year’s Festival of the Deadliest “scare zone.” Plus, after 26 years of Excellent Halloween Adventures, Bill and Ted are bringing their Farewell Tour to Halloween Horror Nights.

 

Additional details on this year’s event will be announced soon. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit www.HalloweenHorrorNights.com/Orlando.

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., ORLANDO, Fla. (14 de agosto de 2017) – A série Jogos Mortais (SAW, em inglês) – uma das franquias de filme de horror mais repugnantes de todos os tempos – faz seu retorno no “Halloween Horror Nights”, dando vida às mais horríveis armadilhas do filme em um labirinto inteiramente novo e original que será inaugurado no Universal Studios Hollywood e no Universal Orlando Resort a partir de 15 de setembro de 2017.

Neste novo labirinto, os visitantes ficarão cara a cara com o trabalho de mestre do artesão “Jigsaw” e sua coleção das armadilhas das mais infames da série de filmes Jogos Mortais, incluindo a oitava parte que está chegando, JIGSAW.

 

“Estamos entusiasmados por ter o Universal Studios como parceiro novamente nesta experiência imersiva que celebra tudo o que os fãs de Jogos Mortais amam”, disse Jenefer Brown, Vice-Presidente Sênior de Entretenimento Global Ao Vivo e por Localização da Lionsgate. “O labirinto traz as armadilhas mais horripilantes que fizeram de Jogos Mortais uma tradição de Halloween, incluindo uma das melhores que estão no próximo filme Jogos Mortais 8 – JIGSAW. Não há melhor maneira de complementar o lançamento do filme do que levar o público para a ação sem limites do “Halloween Horror Nights”.

 

“Jogos Mortais é uma das franquias de horror mais horripilantes, e nós estamos em êxtase que o favorito dos fãs está retornando ao 'Halloween Horror Nights'”, disse John Murdy, Diretor Criativo do Universal Studios Hollywood e Produtor Executivo do “Halloween Horror Nights”. “'SAW: The Games of Jigsaw’ incluirá a melhor coleção das armadilhas que aparecem nos 8 filmes Jogos Mortais para dar vida ao labirinto mais perturbador jamais produzido, e nós mal podemos esperar para nossos fãs reviverem estes momentos dos filmes.”

 

“Estamos animados por trazer Jogos Mortais de volta ao Halloween Horror Nights e levar os fãs ainda mais fundo na mente de Jigsaw”, disse Charles Gray, Diretor de Show e Desenvolvimento Criativo do  “Halloween Horror Nights” no Universal Orlando Resort. “Cheio de horrores inimagináveis tanto da saga quanto do filme que está para estrear, esse labirinto é uma armadilha por si só”.

 

Criado por James Wan e Leigh Whannell, a saga Jogos Mortais aumentou a tensão e a invenção com cada filme bem-sucedido, enquanto agitava os nervos de milhares de pessoas pelo mundo.

Coming 2018: Fast & Furious – Supercharged and Universal’s Aventura Hotel
Get a Sneak Peek at Universal’s Aventura Hotel with this 360-degree Virtual Tour


ORLANDO, Fla. (June 5, 2017) - A revolutionary water theme park has risen at Universal Orlando Resort. The recent opening of Universal’s Volcano Bay marks the next chapter in the award-winning vacation destination’s evolution. An all-encompassing, three-park destination, Universal Orlando continues to create authentic, next-level guest experiences in a way that no one else can.

Universal Orlando is part of the NBCUniversal Comcast family, which has invested significantly in the destination’s unprecedented growth. In just seven years, 25 new experiences – entire themed areas, attractions, restaurants, and hotels – have been added across the destination.

And there’s even more on the way. This growth will continue through 2017 and beyond, with the now open expansion of the retro-themed Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort, a new action-packed ride experience based on The Fast & Furious, one of the most popular film franchises of all time, and the destination’s sixth on-site hotel, Universal’s Aventura Hotel.

Universal’s Volcano Bay – Now Open
Spanning 25 fully immersive acres, Volcano Bay is a next-level water theme park. It combines spectacular storytelling and incredible guest experiences with innovative technology exclusively designed for the park, giving visitors a fun-filled, hassle-free experience.

With more than 30 experiences including 18 unique attractions, Volcano Bay has something for everyone – from perfected relaxation to incredible thrills. With the 200-feet Krakatau volcano as the iconic centerpiece, guests can enjoy a multi-directional wave pool with sandy beaches, a peaceful winding river, twisting multi-rider raft rides, speeding body slides that drop from the top of the volcano into the waters below, and more.

And with the waterproof TapuTapu wearable – included with park admission – guests now have more time to enjoy everything the water theme park has to offer. TapuTapu allows guests to virtually wait in line for rides while they explore other areas of the park. Guests can also enjoy interactive TapTu Play experiences, triggering special effects like streams of water spurting from whales in Tot Tiki Reef and illuminating the hidden caves inside the volcano. Additional features of the TapuTapu wearable include the ability to make purchases and access lockers with just a simple tap.

Fast & Furious – Supercharged – Coming in Spring 2018
Announced today, Fast & Furious – Supercharged will debut in the spring of 2018 in Universal Studios Florida. The action-packed ride will take guests on a high-octane journey that fuses an original storyline, incredible ride technology, popular characters, exhilarating environments, nonstop action and, of course, high-speed cars. Guests will feel like part of the Fast & Furious family as they join Dom Toretto, Hobbs, Letty and Roman on a thrilling new Fast & Furious journey.


NEW!: The attraction will also feature the Virtual Line experience, allowing guests to select a time to ride in advance so they can spend less time waiting in line and more time discovering other incredible thrills throughout Universal Studios Florida. The Virtual Line system will be accessible via the Official Universal Orlando Resort App or at kiosks located outside the attraction entrance.

Universal’s Aventura Hotel & Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort
Debuting in August 2018, Universal’s Aventura Hotel will offer tech-savvy accommodations, including in-room tablets that control many of the rooms’ features like the TV, room temperature controls, and more. Additional tech features throughout the hotel will include a virtual reality game room and dive-in movie experience with an underwater speaker system in the hotel’s resort-style pool. More high-tech amenities available at Universal’s Aventura Hotel will be revealed soon.

Universal’s Aventura Hotel will let guests enjoy a fresh and fun way to stay that’s both modern and vibrant. Reservations are now being accepted for stays beginning August 1, 2018, with rates starting as low as $97 per night for a seven-night stay and $116 per night for a four-night stay.

“COME OUT, COME OUT WHEREVER YOU ARE!”


For the First Time Ever, One of the Greatest Horror Films of All Time Will Come to Life in All-New Haunted Mazes at the Nation’s Premier Halloween Events in Orlando and Hollywood

ORLANDO, Fla., UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. (May 19, 2017) – For the first time ever, the psychological horror film, The Shining, will bring unspeakable terror to “Halloween Horror Nights” in terrifying new mazes opening at Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood, beginning this September.


The twisted minds behind the nation’s best, most intense Halloween events will bring every gruesome moment and paranormal haunting that fans have seen in the film to life in original, disturbingly authentic mazes.


“The Shining” maze at Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights will provide guests with a unique opportunity to relive some of the film’s most iconic, and sinister, moments.

Haz clic AQUÍ y dale un vistazo al terror inminente


ORLANDO, Florida; UNIVERSAL CITY, California (19 de mayo del 2017). Por primera vez, la película de terror psicológico The Shining traerá terror indescriptible a "Halloween Horror Nights" en los nuevos laberintos aterradores de Universal Orlando Resort y Universal Studios Hollywood a partir de septiembre de este año.


Las mentes retorcidas detrás de los mejores y más intensos eventos de Halloween del país darán vida, en laberintos originales y verdaderamente perturbadores, a todos los momentos horripilantes y de agobio sobrenatural que los fanáticos han visto en la película.


El laberinto de "The Shining" en Halloween Horror Nights de Universal Studios dará a los visitantes una oportunidad única para revivir algunos de los momentos más icónicos y siniestros de la película. Mientras se aventuran en el espeluznante Overlook Hotel, los visitantes se verán envueltos en la trágica historia de locura y asesinato del hotel, y serán testigos de cómo el guardia Jack Torrance pierde la cordura vertiginosamente. Visiones horripilantes cobrarán vida en este laberinto macabro y agobiarán a los visitantes con el "resplandor" de seres fantasmagóricos y asesinos que están al acecho en cada esquina. Todo esto, mientras los visitantes tratan de escapar de la ira de Jack Torrance, quien sucumbirá bruscamente a las fuerzas sobrenaturales del hotel.


Tanto críticos como fanáticos han descrito la película The Shining como "una obra maestra de terror moderno". La inmensa influencia de la película en la cultura popular, dirigida por Stanley Kubrick, se ha plasmado en una gran cantidad de películas, series de televisión, música y mucho más desde su inquietante debut en 1980.


"Halloween Horror Nights" de Universal Studios es el evento más importante de Halloween. Durante más de 20 años, visitantes de todas partes del mundo han asistido a Halloween Horror Nights en Orlando y Hollywood para convertirse en las víctimas de su propia película de terror. Las calles de los eventos en cada costa se transforman en zonas de terror sumamente decoradas para la ocasión, en las que "actores de terror" atacan desde cada esquina oscura. Durante el evento, se construyen muchas casas embrujadas que parecen salidas de un plató cinematográfico, los temas van desde clásicos del cine de horror hasta las famosas series de horror televisivas y las historias originales espeluznantes.


Pronto revelaremos más detalles sobre "Halloween Horror Nights" de Universal Studios. Para obtener más información sobre Halloween Horror Nights en Universal Orlando Resort o Universal Studios Hollywood, visita www.HalloweenHorrorNights.com.

Taputapu At Universal’s Volcano Bay: The Theme Park Experience Redefined http://media.universalorlando.com/PressRelease/detail.aspx?id=61303&ct=27752

Universal Announces More New Features for its Revolutionary Wearable – Taking the Water Park Experience to the Next Level


And – Beyond Volcano Bay – Virtual Lines and

App-Based Ticketing Begin to Enhance the Guest Experience


New Images of Universal’s Volcano Bay Available for Download at https://universalorlandoresort.sharefile.com/d-s48bf27069e242de8


Orlando, Fla. (May 17, 2017) – Guests at Universal’s Volcano Bay – the innovative water theme park set to open on May 25th – will experience an entirely new level of freedom and fun as they enjoy the park with friends and family.


There will be no more standing in long lines to experience an attraction. No more carrying wallets, cash or credit cards throughout the park. No more fumbling for a locker key.


With Volcano Bay, Universal set out to create a water theme park entertainment experience unlike any other. It talked with guests about what they like and don’t like when it comes to water parks. And it designed the waterproof TapuTapu wearable to enhance fun and remove hassles.


Volcano Bay guests will use their TapuTapu wearable, which is included with admission, to virtually wait in line for rides while enjoying other areas of the park – converting their “queue” experience into a float down a peaceful, winding river or a quick bite to eat. Their wearable will simply alert them when it’s time for their ride. Or, they can enjoy many TapTu Play experiences throughout the park - triggering special effects like controlling streams of water spurting from whales in Tot Tiki Reef, shooting water cannons at guests snaking down Kopiko Wai Winding River, illuminating images in the volcano’s hidden caves and more.


And today, Universal announced even more brand new TapuTapu features – all designed to give guests more freedom as they enjoy Volcano Bay.


    • TapTu Pay: Guests can make purchases throughout the entire park with their TapuTapu wearable, eliminating the need for cash, credit cards or a wallet. 
    • TapTu Snap/My Universal Photo Access: Guests can take advantage of special interactive photo opportunities and selfie-spots throughout the park as well as photo opportunities on Volcano Bay’s attractions. Their wearable will automatically sync those photos to their account so that guests can view, share and purchase them at their convenience.
    • Locker Access: After renting their lockers, guests will be able to access them with a touch of their TapuTapu wearable. 

The best way for guests to take advantage of TapuTapu’s benefits is to create an account. Account setup is quick and easy and can be done at any time through the Official Universal Orlando Resort app or at Universal Orlando’s website. For more information about Volcano Bay or to set up an account, visit www.universalorlando.com/volcanobay.


TapuTapu is specifically designed for use within Universal’s Volcano Bay. But the theme park destination is also working to give its guests more freedom and fun across all its theme parks. Examples include:

    • Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon, the first attraction at Universal Studios Florida to feature a Virtual Line experience. Guests spend less time in line and more time enjoying themselves across the theme park. The virtual line system is accessible via the Official Universal Orlando Resort app or at kiosks outside the attraction entrance.
    • Mobile-based purchases and redemption of all tickets via the Official Universal Orlando Resort app, eliminating the need for physical tickets to enter Universal Orlando’s theme parks. This allows guests to store, organize and access their tickets from the Guest’s Wallet in the app so they can bypass the ticket booth and go directly to the front entrance.  This benefit, implemented earlier this year, has now been extended to include Universal Orlando Resort Annual Passholders.
        • Using the Official Universal Orlando Resort app, all guests can now plan their visit, browse ticket options and purchase their tickets from their mobile device. Admission, dining, photo package options and premium experiences can now be directly accessed from the app.

About Universal Orlando Resort
For more than 25 years, Universal Orlando Resort has been creating epic vacations for the entire family – incredible experiences that place guests in the heart of powerful stories and adventures.


Universal Orlando’s theme parks, Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure, are home to some of the world’s most exciting and innovative theme park experiences – including The Wizarding World of Harry Potter-Hogsmeade and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter-Diagon Alley. And on May 25, 2017, Universal Orlando will open its third park, Universal’s Volcano Bay – an entirely new water theme park experience. Universal’s on-site resort hotels, Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, the Hard Rock Hotel, Loews Royal Pacific Resort, Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort and the all-new Loews Sapphire Falls Resort, are destinations unto themselves. Its entertainment complex, Universal CityWalk, offers dining and entertainment for every member of the family.


Universal Orlando Resort has unveiled more than 20 new guest experiences since 2010 – powerful attractions, incredible dining opportunities and dramatically themed hotels. Now open is Skull Island: Reign of Kong, a groundbreaking attraction in Islands of Adventure, and CityWalk’s newest, unique dining experience, The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen.

TapuTapu en Universal’s Volcano Bay: la experiencia de parque temático redefinida http://media.universalorlando.com/PressRelease/EspanolDetail.aspx?id=61568&ct=27752

Universal anuncia más funciones nuevas para su revolucionario accesorio portátil, llevando la experiencia de parque acuático al próximo nivel


Y —más allá de Volcano Bay— “Virtual Line” y la venta de boletos por aplicación móvil comienzan a mejorar la experiencia de los visitantes


Nuevas imágenes de Universal’s Volcano Bay están disponibles para descargar aquí: https://universalorlandoresort.sharefile.com/d-s48bf27069e242de8


Orlando, Fla. (17 de mayo del 2017) – Los visitantes de Universal’s Volcano Bay, el innovador parque acuático temático que se inaugurará el 25 de mayo, tendrán un nivel completamente nuevo de libertad y diversión mientras disfrutan del parque con amigos y familiares.


Ya no tendrán que esperar de pie en largas líneas para acceder a una atracción. Ya no es necesario llevar billeteras, dinero en efectivo ni tarjetas de crédito en el parque. Ya no tendrán que buscar la llave del casillero.


Con Volcano Bay, Universal creará una experiencia de diversión en un parque acuático temático como ninguna otra. Universal conversó con los visitantes sobre qué les gustaba y qué no les gustaba cuando venían a parques acuáticos. Y diseñó el TapuTapu portátil impermeable para brindar aun más diversión y eliminar las molestias.


Los visitantes de Volcano Bay usarán su TapuTapu portátil, que está incluido con el boleto, para hacer la fila para las atracciones de manera virtual mientras disfrutan de otras áreas del parque, y así convertir su experiencia "de espera" en un paseo en flotador por un río tranquilo y serpenteante o en un bocadillo rápido. Su accesorio portátil les avisará cuando les toque subirse a la atracción. O, pueden disfrutar varias experiencias de TapTu Play en todo el parque, que les permitirán lanzar efectos especiales, como controlar corrientes de agua que salen a chorros de ballenas en Tot Tiki Reef, disparar cañones de agua a los visitantes que van por el recorrido serpenteante en Kopiko Wai Winding River e iluminar imágenes en las cuevas ocultas del volcán y más.


Y hoy, Universal anunció incluso más funciones nuevas del TapuTapu, todas diseñadas para darles a los visitantes más libertad mientras disfrutan Volcano Bay.


    • TapTu Pay: Los visitantes pueden hacer compras en todo el parque con su TapuTapu portátil, lo que elimina la necesidad de dinero en efectivo, tarjetas de crédito y billeteras.
    • TapTu Snap/Acceso a My Universal Photo: Los visitantes pueden aprovechar las oportunidades especiales de fotos interactivas y los lugares para tomarse “selfies” en el parque, como también las oportunidades de fotos en las atracciones de Volcano Bay. Su accesorio portátil sincronizará automáticamente esas fotos a su cuenta para que los visitantes puedan ver, compartir y comprarlas cuando lo deseen.
    • Acceso a casillero: Después de alquilar sus casilleros, los visitantes podrán acceder a estos con un simple toque de su TapuTapu portátil.

La mejor manera para aprovechar los beneficios de TapuTapu es creando una cuenta.  La configuración de la cuenta es rápida y sencilla, y se puede realizar en cualquier momento a través de la aplicación móvil oficial de Universal Orlando Resort o en el sitio web de Universal Orlando.  Para obtener más información sobre Volcano Bay o cómo configurar una cuenta, visita www.universalorlando.com/volcanobay.


TapuTapu está específicamente diseñado para usarlo dentro de Universal's Volcano Bay. Pero Universal Orlando Resort también está trabajando para darles a sus visitantes más libertad y diversión en todos sus parques temáticos. Los ejemplos incluyen:

    • Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon, la primera atracción de Universal Studios Florida que cuenta con la experiencia de “Virtual Line” (línea virtual). Los visitantes pasan menos tiempo en la línea y más tiempo disfrutando alrededor del parque temático. El sistema Virtual Line está disponible a través de la aplicación móvil oficial de Universal Orlando Resort o en los puntos de información ubicados afuera de la entrada de la atracción.
    • Las compras y el retiro de todos los boletos pueden realizarse a través de la aplicación móvil oficial de Universal Orlando Resort, lo que elimina la necesidad de los boletos físicos para ingresar a los parques temáticos de Universal Orlando. Esto permite que los visitantes almacenen, organicen y accedan a sus boletos desde la “Guest Wallet” (billetera del visitante) en la aplicación para que no tengan que pasar por la taquilla y accedan directamente a la entrada principal. Este beneficio, implementado a comienzos de este año, se mejoró para incluir a los titulares de pase anual de Universal Orlando Resort.
        • Con la aplicación oficial de Universal Orlando Resort, todos los visitantes pueden planificar su visita, explorar las opciones de boletos y comprarlos desde sus dispositivos móviles. Ahora las opciones de boletos, comidas, opciones de paquetes y las experiencias Premium pueden ser accedidas directamente desde la aplicación.

TapuTapu No Universal’s Volcano Bay Redefine A Experiência Em Parques Temáticos http://media.universalorlando.com/PressRelease/PortuguesDetail.aspx?id=61569&ct=27752

A Universal anuncia mais recursos da sua pulseira revolucionária, que leva a experiência em parques aquáticos a um patamar ainda mais incrível


E, além do Volcano Bay, as Filas Virtuais e o sistema de ingressos via aplicativo começam a aprimorar a experiência dos visitantes


Novas imagens do Universal's Volcano Bay disponíveis para download em https://universalorlandoresort.sharefile.com/d-s48bf27069e242de8


Orlando, Fla. (17 de maio de 2017) – Os visitantes do Universal’s Volcano Bay, o inovador parque aquático temático que será inaugurado em 25 de maio, sentirão um novo nível de liberdade e diversão ao curtirem o parque com seus amigos e familiares.


Chega de esperar em filas enormes para aproveitar uma atração. Chega de carregar carteira, dinheiro ou cartão de crédito pelo parque. Chega de ficar procurando a chave do armário.


No Volcano Bay, a Universal acaba de criar uma experiência de entretenimento em parques aquáticos temáticos diferente de qualquer outra. A Universal conversou com os visitantes sobre o que eles gostam e o que não gostam nos parques aquáticos, e desenvolveu a TapuTapu vestível à prova d'água para aumentar a diversão e acabar com os aborrecimentos.


Os visitantes do Volcano Bay usarão a TapuTapu vestível, que está inclusa no ingresso, para aguardarem virtualmente na fila enquanto aproveitam outras áreas do parque, transformando suas experiências em “filas” em um passeio por um rio tranquilo e sinuoso ou então fazendo um lanchinho rápido. A pulseira irá avisá-los quando for a hora de ir para atração. Eles ainda poderão curtir várias experiências com o TapTu Play pelo parque ativando efeitos especiais, como controlar correntes de água saindo das baleias no Tot Tiki Reef, disparar canhões de água em visitantes que passam pelo Kopiko Wai Winding River, iluminar imagens nas cavernas ocultas do vulcão e muito mais.


E hoje, a Universal anunciou mais alguns novos recursos da TapuTapu totalmente desenvolvidos para oferecer aos visitantes mais liberdade para aproveitar o Volcano Bay:


    • TapTu Pay: os visitantes poderão fazer compras pelo parque com sua TapuTapu vestível, eliminando a necessidade de dinheiro, cartão de crédito ou carteira.
    • TapTu Snap/Acesso ao My Universal Photo: os visitantes poderão aproveitar as oportunidades especiais para fotos interativas e pontos para selfies pelo parque, bem como oportunidades para fotos nas atrações do Volcano Bay. A pulseira sincronizará automaticamente essas fotos com suas contas para que os visitantes possam visualizar, compartilhar e comprar quando quiserem.
    • Acesso ao armário: após alugarem seus armários, os visitantes poderão acessá-los com um simples toque na sua TapuTapu vestível.

A melhor forma para que os visitantes aproveitem os benefícios da TapuTapu é criando uma conta. A configuração da conta é rápida e fácil e pode ser feita a qualquer momento através do aplicativo oficial do Universal Orlando Resort ou no site do Universal Orlando. Para mais informações sobre o Volcano Bay ou sobre como configurar uma conta, visite www.universalorlando.com/volcanobay.


TapuTapu no Universal’s Volcano Bay.

A TapuTapu foi desenvolvida especificamente para ser usada dentro do Universal’s Volcano Bay. Mas o complexo também está trabalhando para dar aos seus visitantes mais liberdade e diversão em todos os seus parques temáticos. Por exemplo:

    • A Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon é a primeira atração do parque Universal Studios Florida a apresentar a experiência da Fila Virtual. Os visitantes gastarão menos tempo em filas e mais tempo se divertindo pelo parque temático. O sistema de fila virtual é acessível através do aplicativo oficial do Universal Orlando Resort ou nos quiosques do lado de fora na entrada da atração.
    • • As compras e resgates de todos os ingressos feitos pelo celular através do aplicativo oficial do Universal Orlando Resort eliminam a necessidade de ingressos impressos para entrar nos parques temáticos do Universal Orlando. Isso permite que os visitantes guardem, organizem e acessem seus ingressos a partir do Guest’s Wallet no aplicativo, para que possam passar direto pela bilheteria e ir direto para a entrada principal. Este benefício, implantado neste ano, foi estendido para incluir os Passholders Anuais do Universal Orlando Resort.
        • Utilizando o aplicativo oficial do Universal Orlando Resort, todos os visitantes poderão planejar suas visitas, visualizar opções de ingressos e comprar seus ingressos a partir dos seus dispositivos móveis. Entradas, gastronomia, opções de pacotes de fotos e experiências especiais agora podem ser acessadas diretamente pelo aplicativo.

The Twisted Tale Continues… FX’s Critically Acclaimed "American Horror Story" Franchise Returns To Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights http://media.universalorlando.com/PressRelease/detail.aspx?id=61076&ct=27752
CLICK HERE For a Disturbing First-Look


ORLANDO, Fla. (March 29, 2017) – This year, one of the most terrifying and unspeakably gruesome shows in television history will return to your nightmares with even more twisted tales of terror.

Beginning Friday, September 15, FX’s critically-acclaimed, Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning television series “American Horror Story” will again come to life at Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando Resort. For a second consecutive year, guests will venture through Ryan Murphy’s groundbreaking horror anthology where they’ll encounter iconic scenes and come face-to-face with the memorable – and horrifying – characters from the series.

“American Horror Story” will also return to Universal Studios Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights in an all-new horrifying maze. Stay tuned for more details about Hollywood’s experience.

Universal Orlando’s all-new, incredibly-detailed maze will bring three new installments of the “American Horror Story” anthology to life. In Asylum, guests will travel through the decades of the notorious Briarcliff – evading Dr. Arden’s grotesque human “Rasper" experiments and coming face to “face” with the serial killer, Bloody Face. In Coven, New Orleans aesthetics will surround guests as they’re drawn into the bloody rivalry between the descendants of the Salem witches, the voodoo Queen of New Orleans Marie Laveau, and the sadistic Madame Delphine LaLaurie. And finally, guests will relive the horrific story of the Millers in Roanoke – where they’ll be at the mercy of Piggy Man, the grisly Polk family and the ghosts of the blood moon.

“We are thrilled to bring the incredible storytelling and iconic characters of ‘American Horror Story’ back to Halloween Horror Nights for a second year,” said Michael Aiello, Sr. Director of Entertainment Creative for Universal Orlando Resort. “Last year, ‘American Horror Story’ was the highest guest-rated haunted house in Halloween Horror Nights history – and we can’t wait to immerse our guests in all-new horrors from the show.”

“The thought of guests once again experiencing up-close multiple installments of Ryan Murphy’s incredible ‘American Horror Story’ series is deeply disturbing, bone chilling, and immensely satisfying. We are thrilled to partner with Universal Studios to present an all-new version of last year’s “Halloween Horror Nights” all-time fan-favorite maze,” said Greg Lombardo, SVP of Global Live and Location Based Entertainment, FoxNext Location Based Entertainment.

Captivating – and shocking – viewers since its debut in 2011, “American Horror Story” has won 15 Emmys, two Golden Globes, four Critics’ Choice Awards and one People’s Choice Award. The latest installment of “American Horror Story” returns to FX fall 2017.

Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando will run for a record-breaking 34 select nights from September 15 to November 4. Guests will face all-new haunted houses based on iconic horror films, terrifying hit TV shows and haunting original stories; multiple scarezones where hordes of menacing “scareactors” stalk their every move; and outrageous live shows. And when they need a break from the screams, guests can enjoy some of Universal Studios’ popular rides & attractions throughout the evening.

Additional details about the event will be revealed soon. For more information, visit www.HalloweenHorrorNights.com/Orlando.

ORLANDO, Fla. (March 8, 2017) – Today, Universal Orlando Resort revealed the story behind its new immersive water theme park, Universal’s Volcano Bay – grand opening May 25, 2017.

 

Volcano Bay is a tropical paradise formed by myth and discovered by legend. It was discovered by the Waturi islanders with the help of a mystical fish who was destined to guide them to a new home.  Visit the Universal Orlando Blog for more information on this remarkable story.

 

Volcano Bay could only be brought to life by Universal Creative – the same team responsible for bringing the ground-breaking experiences within Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure to life. The team traveled around the South Pacific to find inspiration that would redefine the water park experience and shape their vision for Volcano Bay. The water theme park is just another example of their commitment to spectacular storytelling and creating amazing, immersive guest experiences.

 

When it grand opens on May 25, Universal’s Volcano Bay will become Universal Orlando’s third amazing theme park and feature a variety of experiences ranging from daring to serene – including a multi-directional wave pool with sandy beaches, a peaceful winding river, twisting multi-rider raft rides, speeding body slides that drop from the top of the volcano into the waters below and more.

Universal Pictures And Illumination Entertainment's Blockbuster, “The Secret Life Of Pets,” Becomes Interactive Float In Superstar Parade At Universal Orlando Resort http://media.universalorlando.com/PressRelease/detail.aspx?id=59465&ct=27752
CLICK HERE for a First Look at “The Secret Life of Pets” Parade Floats


Orlando, Fla. (November 21, 2016) – Starting this December, guests will experience some of the most hilarious and memorable moments from Illumination Entertainment's smash hit, “The Secret Life of Pets” as they come to life in Universal’s Superstar Parade. The all-new parade floats will give guests the chance to interact with their favorite characters from the film and get a glimpse into what happens when the pet owners are away.

The world of “The Secret Life of Pets” will be brought to life in two incredibly detailed floats. The first is themed after Central Park and will feature the film’s two main characters, Max and his unlikely friend Duke. The second float will showcase the apartments and skyline of The Big Apple from the film. It will house even more memorable characters including the head-banging Leonard, Buddy (and his unique massage mixer), fearless leader Snowball, Gidget, Chloe and more. And – for the first time ever – some of the characters will talk with guests.

The all-new floats will be surrounded by high-energy performers dressed as ordinary pet owners, who will dance, bounce – and even do parkour gymnastics – to a remake of the dance classic “Bust a Move” as the floats make their way down the streets of Universal Studios Florida.

ORLANDO, Fla. (November 3, 2016) - In early summer 2017, a first-of-its-kind water theme park will erupt at Universal Orlando Resort – Universal’s Volcano Bay. It will be an innovative experience filled with incredible thrills and perfected relaxation. And on November 15, guests will have the chance to purchase tickets to experience it firsthand. Guests can receive a notification when tickets go on sale and updates about Volcano Bay by signing up for real-time email alerts.

Volcano Bay will span 30 fully immersive acres and feature a variety of experiences that range from daring to serene. Dozens of unique attractions will offer something for everyone, including a multi-directional wave pool with sandy beaches, a peaceful winding river, twisting multi-rider raft rides, speeding body slides that drop from the top of the volcano into the waters below – and more. And the best part – guests won’t have to wait in long lines to enjoy any of it.

Today, Universal Orlando Resort reveals first-ever details about the park’s state-of-the-art Krakatau Aqua Coaster that will take guests on an exciting voyage unlike any other, and the all-new TapuTapu wearable technology that will redefine the way guests experience water parks.

Krakatau Aqua Coaster – Volcano Bay’s State-of-the-Art Marquee Attraction
Krakatau Aqua Coaster will be the star experience at Universal’s Volcano Bay – combining innovative ride technology with water theme park thrills to take families on an unforgettable adventure through the park’s massive icon – the 200-foot Krakatau volcano.

Guests will board specially-designed canoes and propel downwards – and upwards – through the volcano’s interior peaks and valleys. They’ll twist, turn and plummet along dark passageways, be launched through sparkling waterfalls and so much more.

Universal is using some of the incredible technology that makes its theme park attractions so compelling to create a first-of-its-kind aqua coaster in Florida. The attraction will use linear induction motor technology, which launches the canoe uphill before it immediately sends riders into a downhill plunge. This technology – combined with the immersive theming Universal is known for – will make Krakatau Aqua Coaster a unique water theme park attraction that’s fun for the entire family.

TapuTapu Wearable Will Redefine the Queue Experience – Less Time Waiting in Lines, More Time Having Fun
Universal’s Volcano Bay will debut a new technology, the TapuTapu wearable, designed to make the guest experience throughout the entire park as hassle-free and fun-filled as possible. As part of their admission, guests will receive a TapuTapu wearable upon arrival to the park that allows them to do the following with a simple tap:
  • Virtual Lines.
    Guests will be able to virtually wait in line while they play in other areas of the park. The wearable will alert guests when it’s time for them to ride so they can head to the attraction.
  • Tap to Play.
    Guests will discover various “tap-to-play” experiences throughout the park – all designed exclusively for Volcano Bay by Universal’s award-winning creative team. With just a tap of TapuTapu, guests can trigger special effects like controlling streams of water spurting from whales in Tot Tiki Reef, shooting water cannons at guests snaking down Kopiko Wai Winding River and illuminating images in the volcano’s hidden caves.

Even more details about TapuTapu and its unique guest features will be released soon. More details about Universal’s Volcano Bay will be revealed over time. For more information and to sign-up for updates, visit www.universalorlando.com/volcanobay.

ORLANDO, Fla. (July 13, 2016) – Today, excited guests gathered in Universal’s Islands of Adventure to help mark the official opening of Universal Orlando Resort’s newest mega attraction, Skull Island: Reign of Kong.

Skull Island: Reign of Kong brings the next generation of the King Kong legend to life on an unprecedented scale. The adventure begins as guests are transported deep into a mysterious world, where their mission is to discover creatures of unknown origin with the 8th Wonder Expedition Company, the research team leading the excursion. After braving ancient temple ruins and encountering hostile natives, they board a massive 40-foot-long, 17-ton expedition vehicle to navigate the increasingly foreboding terrain.

The specially designed expedition vehicle, which operates on a completely trackless ride system, takes guests deeper into the ominous island, where they soon find themselves in the midst of a brutal struggle between beasts of unimaginable size and ferocity.

Then, as those creatures turn on the expedition, there is an even more enormous, earth-pounding presence. It is Kong – in the flesh. Towering nearly three stories tall, he is so close that you can feel his breath and sense his emotion. But is he friend or foe?

For more information about Reign of Kong, visit our blog at blog.universalorlando.com.

And tomorrow, Universal Orlando’s fifth on-site hotel, Loews Sapphire Falls Resort, will welcome its first guests. The 1,000-room Caribbean-themed hideaway will feature the destination’s largest resort-style pool with a water slide, cabanas and a fire pit. The pool is surrounded by two sand beaches, a picturesque waterfall and a breathtaking lush lagoon, which will take guests to Universal Orlando’s two incredible theme park and CityWalk via water taxi. The hotel will also feature several unique and immersive dining experiences.

"SKULL ISLAND: REIGN OF KONG" É INAUGURADA NO UNIVERSAL ORLANDO RESORT http://media.universalorlando.com/PressRelease/PortuguesDetail.aspx?id=57329&ct=27752

Baixe as fotos do momento da inauguração oficial e da inovadora atração aqui: https://universalorlandoresort.sharefile.com/d-s16a1f5a18a94d778

ORLANDO, Fla. (13 de julho de 2016) – Hoje, visitantes empolgados se encontraram no Universal's Islands of Adventure para ajudar a marcar a inauguração oficial da mais nova superatração do Universal Orlando Resort, Skull Island: Reign of Kong.

Skull Island: Reign of Kong dá vida à última geração do lendário King Kong em escala inigualável. A aventura começa com o transporte dos visitantes a um mundo misterioso, onde eles têm a missão de descobrir criaturas de origem desconhecida com a 8th Wonder Expedition Company, a equipe de pesquisa que lidera a excursão. Após desbravar as ruínas de um templo e encontrar nativos hostis, eles embarcam em um veículo de expedição de 12 metros de comprimento e 17 toneladas para explorar um terreno cheio de perigos.

O veículo de expedição foi especialmente desenvolvido para essa função e opera em um sistema completamente sem trilhos, embrenhando os visitantes cada vez mais nas entranhas dessa ilha ameaçadora, onde eles se encontrarão em meio a um duelo brutal entre criaturas de porte e ferocidade inimagináveis.

Depois, quando as criaturas se afastam da expedição, há ainda uma presença ainda maior e mais reverberante: o próprio King Kong, em carne e osso. Do tamanho de um prédio de três andares, o gorila está tão próximo que é possível sentir sua respiração e perceber sua emoção. Mas, ele é amigo ou inimigo?

Para mais informações sobre Reign of Kong, acesse nosso blog em blog.universalorlando.com.

E, amanhã, o Loews Sapphire Falls Resort, quinto espetacular hotel no complexo Universal Orlando, dará as boas-vindas aos seus primeiros visitantes. O refúgio de temática caribenha, com 1000 suítes, terá a maior piscina em estilo resort do destino com tobogã, cabanas e uma fogueira. A piscina é rodeada por duas praias de areia, uma cachoeira encantadora e uma lagoa luxuriante de tirar o fôlego, que irá levar os hóspedes aos dois incríveis parques temáticos do Universal Orlando e ao CityWalk via táxi aquático. O hotel também contará com diversas experiências gastronômicas únicas e imersivas.

A place like this could only be brought to life by Universal Creative – the same team behind ground-breaking theme park experiences like The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man and Despicable Me Minion Mayhem.

Superaguardado Parque Aquático Do Universal Orlando Resort Abrirá Em 2017 http://media.universalorlando.com/PressRelease/PortuguesDetail.aspx?id=56987&ct=27752

Volcano Bay será o terceiro parque temático do Universal Orlando Resort,
um paraíso único cheio de diversões e aventuras encharcadas, deleites relaxantes e rejuvenescimento.

Ingressos internacionais estarão à venda em breve para viagens a partir de 1º de junho de 2017


ORLANDO, Fla. (21 de junho de 2016) – Um oásis exuberante e tropical se abre à sua frente, transportando você instantaneamente para uma ilha pouco conhecida do Pacífico. Ao longe, um vulcão enorme se ergue em uma praia cintilante, exibindo cachoeiras majestosas durante o dia e lavas flamejantes à noite.

 

Bem-vindo ao Universal's Volcano Bay – o parque aquático radicalmente inovador que abrirá no próximo ano no Universal Orlando Resort. Com mais de 113.000 m² totalmente imersivos, o terceiro parque temático do Universal Orlando será um novo tipo de experiência em parque aquático, que dará aos visitantes ainda mais diversão nas suas férias.

 

No Volcano Bay, os visitantes descobrirão um lugar sem igual, recheado de aventuras incríveis e deleites relaxantes. Este parque único vai combinar experiências revigorantes com conveniências de descanso sem interrupções para que famílias possam curtir ao máximo suas férias juntos. Elas não precisarão enfrentar longas filas ou lutar contra tubos antes de mergulhar fundo nas atrações ímpares que serão encontradas pelo parque. Elas poderão aproveitar uma série de experiências que vão desde rios sinuosos, cabanas particulares de dois andares até passeios de bote com a família e toboáguas sinuosos que lançarão os visitantes sobre a água.

 

Aqui está o que você não pode deixar de saber sobre o Volcano Bay:

●  Uma experiência de parque aquático totalmente inovadora
O Volcano Bay vai redefinir a experiência de fila para que os visitantes foquem apenas em se divertir e passar tempo juntos. Os visitantes não precisarão nem carregar seus próprios botes quando subirem nos toboáguas.

●  18 atrações incomparáveis em 4 criativas áreas temáticas
O Volcano Bay oferecerá 18 atrações únicas que irão variar de calmas a ousadas. Elas estarão       divididas em quatro áreas principais no parque onde haverá algo para cada visitante, incluindo uma            piscina de ondas multidirecional com areia de praia, um tranquilo rio sinuoso, atrações cheias de giros            com botes que permitirão mais de 1 visitante, escorregadores de alta velocidade que caem do topo do      vulcão até a água lá embaixo – e uma atração protagonista de última geração que será anunciada     posteriormente. Mais detalhes sobre as atrações do parque podem ser encontrados na última página.

●  Um time criativo premiado
Um lugar com este só poderia ter sido criado pelo Universal Creative – o mesmo time por trás das revolucionárias experiências em parques temáticos como The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Revenge of the Mummy e Despicable Me Minion Mayhem. O time pesquisou parques aquáticos e resorts tropicais ao redor do mundo para ajudar a redefinir a experiência em parque aquático e moldar o que vislumbravam para o Volcano Bay.

●  Instalações de resort e de fácil acesso em todo o parque:
Cada área do parque vai oferecer suas próprias instalações de fácil acesso e típicas de um resort, como locais de serviço de concierge e armários, para que os visitantes não precisem desviar do seu caminho para conseguir o que precisam. Também haverá restaurantes altamente temáticos e bares localizados pelo parque oferecendo opções assinadas de refeições e bebidas, além de uma vista impressionante do vulcão. Mais novidades únicas do parque serão anunciadas posteriormente.

●  Localização conveniente dentro do Universal Orlando:
O Volcano Bay estará localizado dentro do Universal Orlando, adjacente ao Universal's Cabana Bay Beach Resort. O parque aquático temático estará a poucos passos dos dois demais parques temáticos do Universal Orlando – o Universal Studios Florida e o Universal's Islands of Adventure, dos hotéis in loco e do Universal CityWalk.

●  Ingressos internacionais à venda em breve:
O Universal Orlando irá em breve apresentar um novo ingresso “3-Park Explorer” para que os visitantes possam se planejar para experimentar o superaguardado Volcano Bay em viagens a partir de 1º de junho de 2017. Ingressos estarão disponíveis através dos sites internacionais e dos profissionais de viagem, e opções adicionais de ingressos serão anunciadas futuramente.

 

Este é apenas o começo e mais detalhes incríveis sobre o Volcano Bay serão anunciados ao longo do tempo. Fique ligado para mais informações visitando o www.UniversalOrlando.com/ e siga o blog Universal Orlando.

Loews Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando Unveils All-New Guest Room Design Inspired by a Luxury Island Paradise http://media.universalorlando.com/pressrelease/detail.aspx?id=56407&ct=27752
Take a Video Journey Through Vibrant New Rooms Here
Download still photos here


ORLANDO, Fla. (May 2, 2016) – Inspired by the adventurous spirit and exotic destinations of the Golden Age of Travel, designers have completed the renovation of guest rooms at Loews Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando. The new look captures the tranquil serenity and bold heritage that embodies the spirit of the islands. With its on-site location at Universal Orlando Resort, the hotel offers guests a modern sense of adventure, filled with the magic and excitement of two world-class theme parks – Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure.

“Our new rooms are vibrant and luxurious, evoking the romance of traveling to the South Pacific” says Complex Managing Director Barb Bowden. “Combined with an extensive upgrade and renovation to the bathrooms, it is an entirely new room product for our guests to experience.”

Take a video journey through the new rooms here.

The guest rooms reflect the magic that exotic destinations in the South Pacific cast over traveler’s hearts at the turn of the 20th century, as well as today. The color palette was inspired by the islands, with sandy neutrals punctuated with hints of turquoise and tangerine reminiscent of sand, water and flowers. Gray and charcoal accents tie back to the lava and harder elements of the islands. Custom furniture pieces make use of leather strapping details, metal corner guards, buckles and rivets, all elements found in vintage luggage, steamer trunks and majestic steamships. A focal point in the new rooms is the accent wall, where a custom graphic creates an art moment showcasing the flora, fauna and native motifs of the South Seas.

Guests staying at Loews Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando receive an exclusive package of theme park benefits at Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure, including free Universal Express Unlimited ride access to skip the regular lines in both theme parks (theme park admission required) and Early Park Admission. The 1,000-room hotel is located a short walk, complimentary water taxi or shuttle bus ride away from both Universal Orlando Resort theme parks. Guests also enjoy exceptional cuisine in a variety of restaurants and lounges, complimentary Wi-Fi, a weekly luau dinner and show and a lagoon-style swimming pool with private cabanas.

Universal Orlando’s Skull Island: Reign Of Kong Experience Reaches Even Higher Level Of Hyper-Realism With Revolutionary Ride Vehicle http://media.universalorlando.com/PressRelease/detail.aspx?id=55842&ct=27752
ORLANDO, Fla. (March 15, 2016) – Your mission is to explore a treacherous island teeming with creatures of unknown origin. You will face ominous terrain, impenetrable jungles – and surprises beyond your imagination. A traditional off-road vehicle will not do. Your expedition will require something more…colossal.

This summer, Universal Orlando Resort will bring the thrilling next generation of the King Kong legend to life in Skull Island: Reign of Kong. Everything about the new attraction will be massive. And Universal Orlando needed an entirely new – and revolutionary – way to transport guests into the middle of the adventure.

Guests will board a specially designed expedition vehicle that will do what no other Universal ride vehicle can do and take them where no other vehicle can go.

The 40-foot-long, 17-ton expedition vehicle will use a sophisticated positioning system to independently navigate a rough, jungle road through unpredictable terrain. The front and back axles that support the vehicle’s 45-inch wheels can be steered individually, allowing the vehicle to take sharp turns and pull off complicated maneuvers. It will be one of the most immersive and realistic ride experiences on Earth – all within one of the most immersive and realistic theme park experiences ever created.

As guests board their expedition vehicle, they will meet one of the five guides who will be their driver – each with a distinct personality.
  • Becky Callahan: The loose-cannon cowgirl who isn’t fazed by the dangers awaiting her on Skull Island.
  • Will Denham: The fresh-faced, adventure-seeking younger cousin of famed movie director Carl Denham.
  • Jinks Costanza: A hardened New York City ex-con who is wary of the island’s mysteries.
  • Kalana: A mystical descendent of the natives who first settled on the island.
  • Charles “Doc” Jordan: A PhD student in paleontology who took time off from his studies to explore the world.


Additional details about “Skull Island: Reign of Kong” are yet to be revealed. To stay up-to-date on all the latest news, visit www.universalorlando.com/ReignofKong.

Skull Island: Reign of Kong En Universal Orlando Alcanza Un Alto Nivel De Hiper-Realismo Con Un Revolucionario Vehículo http://media.universalorlando.com/PressRelease/EspanolDetail.aspx?id=55857&ct=27752 Vea aquí el video del impresionante vehículo:
https://universalorlandoresort.sharefile.com/d-s0f5eb29489e46638

 

ORLANDO, Fla. (15 de marzo, 2016) – Tu misión es explorar una isla peligrosa junto a criaturas de origen desconocido. Enfrentarás terreno ominoso, junglas impenetrables –y sorpresas más allá de tu imaginación. Un vehículo todo terreno tradicional no es suficiente para esto. Tu expedición requiere algo más… colosal.

 

Este verano, Universal Orlando Resort trae a la vida en Skull Island: Reign of Kong la emocionante próxima generación de la leyenda de King Kong. Todo lo que respecta a esta atracción será gigantesco, por lo que Universal Orlando tuvo que crear una manera completamente nueva –y revolucionaria – de transportar visitantes al corazón de la aventura.

 

Lo visitantes abordarán un vehículo de expedición especialmente diseñado, que podrá hacer lo que ningún otro vehículo de atracciones de Universal ha hecho, e ir a lugares donde otros vehículos no pueden.

 

El vehículo de más de 12 metros de largo y 17 toneladas de peso utilizará un sofisticado sistema de posicionamiento que le permite navegar independientemente a través de la jungla sobre un sendero sinuoso e impredecible. Los ejes delanteros y traseros que sirven de soporte a las ruedas de 114.3 centímetros del vehículo pueden ser manipulados individualmente, lo que le permite al vehículo hacer bruscos virajes y realizar complicadas maniobras. Esta será una de las experiencias de inmersión más realistas del mundo –todo dentro de una de las experiencias de mayor inmersión y realismo jamás creadas en un parque temático.

 

Cuando los visitantes aborden su vehículo de expedición, conocerán uno de cinco guías, quien será su conductor. Cada uno de ellos tiene una personalidad distintiva.

 

  • Becky Callahan: Una vaquera temeraria e impulsiva, a la que los peligros que puedan aguardarle en Skull Island la tienen sin cuidado.
  • Will Denham: Un joven aventurero, primo menor del afamado director de cine Carl Denham.
  • Jinks Costanza: Un ex presidiario de Nueva York que trata los misterios de la isla con cautela.
  • Kalana: Una mística descendiente de los primeros nativos que se establecieron en la isla.
  • Charles “Doc” Jordan: Un estudiante haciendo su doctorado en paleontología quien se ha tomado un sabático para explorar el mundo.

New Restaurant Brings Incredible Chocolate, Deliciously Expansive Menu And Stunning Atmosphere To Universal Citywalk http://media.universalorlando.com/PressRelease/detail.aspx?id=55793&ct=27752
Unique Experience is the Latest in Popular Dining Concepts Only Found at Universal Orlando Resort


ORLANDO, Fla. (March 14, 2016) – The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen at Universal CityWalk may be the most spectacularly delicious example yet of what happens when the Universal Creative team that designs theme park attractions comes together with the culinary team that creates blockbuster food and beverage experiences.

 

Set to open later this year, The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium will be a full-service restaurant that brings together a specially created and expansive menu plus an incredible array of gourmet-level chocolates and desserts – all in a highly themed, unique environment that can only be found at Universal CityWalk.


The restaurant will be located near the entrance to Universal’s Islands of Adventure theme park, and visible around the entire CityWalk lagoon. Welcome to the 19th century inspired, Steampunk-era chocolate factory, complete with towering smokestacks and tanks, piping and other equipment for chocolate production. Inside, a mix of brass, dark wood and gadgetry – along with staff who will look and act the part – will complete the Steampunk feel.

This unique experience will be punctuated by the food that will completely enrapture you. The menu features a wide variety of unexpected, yet familiar dishes – from all-day-brunch crepes and quiches to unique takes on classic steak, seafood and pasta entrees, gourmet burgers, sandwiches, scrumptious salads and so much more. The number of options will leave you speechless. And the desserts and specialty items will be beyond the imagination.

The artisan milkshake collection will include shakes with names such as Chocolate x5 – mixed with chocolate spirals, chocolate chunks, chocolate ice cream and more – along with Bacon Brittle, Espresso Buzzzz, Red Velvet and Key Lime Pie.

The sundaes include S’mores – with chocolate ice cream, chocolate sauce, marshmallow cream, graham crackers and more – Salted Caramel Flan, Chocolate Brownie Bark – and more.

Guests will also be able to watch chocolate creations being prepared – and take home samples purchased in the restaurant’s retail shop.

The new restaurant will be the latest in a progression of incredibly popular dining concepts that have opened at Universal CityWalk over the past couple years – nine new concepts in two years, to be exact.

Este nuevo restaurante es el último en una progresión de conceptos culinarios increíblemente populares que han abierto en Universal CityWalk en los últimos dos años. En total se han abierto nueve conceptos nuevos.

Universal Orlando Reveals Incredibly Immersive Journey of Next Blockbuster Attraction, Skull Island: Reign of Kong http://media.universalorlando.com/PressRelease/Detail.aspx?id=55575&ct=27752

First-ever attraction photo available for download here:
https://universalorlandoresort.sharefile.com/d-sb403e3106ac49c2a




ORLANDO, Fla. (February 25, 2016) – Soon, you will be transported to an island shrouded in mystery and legend.  It is a lost world where adventure – and the unimaginable – will challenge you in unforgettable ways.

 

When it opens this summer at Universal Orlando Resort’s Islands of Adventure, Skull Island: Reign of Kong will bring the next generation of the King Kong legend to life.  You will be thrust into an exotic world filled with the menacing, the intense – and the wildly entertaining.  A powerful storyline, a stunning 3D experience, innovative technology – and the unexpected – will pull you into one of Universal Orlando’s most massive adventures yet.  This is a multi-dimensional experience filled with surprise – all wrapped into what will be one of the longest Universal ride experiences ever created. 

 

More first-ever details will be released soon.  But today, Universal Orlando unveils details about the incredible journey guests will experience.

 

The adventure begins as you set out to explore an island rife with prehistoric creatures of unknown origin –and the legend of a beast still undiscovered.  You find yourself at a campsite of the 8th Wonder Expedition Company, the research team leading your adventure.

 

Once beyond camp, the menacing terrain shows signs of a native presence; beating drums draw you toward an ancient temple. Moving deeper into the ruins reveals a lost shrine – and proof you are not alone. You ignore warnings to turn back.    

 

You board a specially designed expedition vehicle that will take you deeper into the island.  Mysterious sounds pierce the air and you hear chanting.  And then – you confront an enormous temple wall, complete with carvings and images that seem to pay homage to something you cannot quite comprehend.  The temple’s massive wooden doors slowly open, revealing a labyrinth of caves.

 

Inside the caves, you meet your expedition leader – and suddenly find yourself in the midst of a raging struggle between creatures of incomprehensible size and ferocity.  Then, as those creatures turn on you, there is an even more enormous, earth-pounding presence – bigger, closer and more overwhelming than you can possibly imagine.  It is Kong.  But is he friend or foe? 

 

More details about “Skull Island: Reign of Kong” will be revealed soon. To stay up-to-date on all the latest news, visit www.universalorlando.com/ReignofKong.

Hard Rock Hotel At Universal Orlando Unveils All-New, Priceless Collection Of Music Memorabilia As Finale To Multi-Million Dollar Renovation And 15th Anniversary http://media.universalorlando.com/pressrelease/detail.aspx?id=55696&ct=27752
Watch the Change-Out of Iconic Memorabilia Case in Special Time-lapse Video


ORLANDO, Fla. (February 2, 2016) – Memorabilia experts and rock historians have assembled an entirely new collection of some of the greatest music memorabilia this side of the 20th century at the Hard Rock Hotel at Universal Orlando. From The Rolling Stones, Elvis and The Beatles to Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Santana, the dazzling collection is the finale to the hotel’s multi-million dollar renovation, coinciding with the hotel’s 15th anniversary this year.

Recognized for infusing world-class hospitality with music for more than four decades, the global collection of Hard Rock venues applaud music history through the brand’s signature music memorabilia displays adorning wall to wall. With more than 80,000 legendary pieces, Hard Rock is the curator of the world’s most expansive and priceless music memorabilia collection and Hard Rock Hotel at Universal Orlando welcomes guests to enjoy this first-hand music experience.

“As music is a universal language and Hard Rock celebrates music that spans all genres and eras, we wanted the new memorabilia collection to celebrate iconic names in music’s past and present,” says Jerry Fraize, Director of Memorabilia for Hard Rock International.

“The premier display located in the hotel lobby now celebrates the legends of The Beatles and Rolling Stones in an awe-inspiring showcase. Additionally, to enhance the guest experience, we have added QR codes that allow instant access to the history of each piece in this extraordinary collection.”

From the suit John Lennon wore in the Beatles’ classic 1964 film debut, A Hard Day’s Night to a latex gown worn by Lady Gaga, the new collection of memorabilia is Hard Rock’s way of paying homage to the power of music and its impact on culture. Highlights of the new collection also include Keith Richards’ five-string guitar used during the Stones’ Some Girls tour; a jumpsuit worn on stage by Michael Jackson during the Jacksons’ 1984 Victory tour; a dress worn by Carrie Underwood in the video for her 2014 hit “Something in the Water” and a mixer, outfit, cake prop and headphones used on stage by Steve Aoki, among other items.

Check out the transformation of one of the iconic lobby display cases in a special time-lapse video here and take a look at all of the pieces in the hotel’s new collection here.

Hard Rock’s renowned collection got its start innocently enough when a regular patron of the Hard Rock Cafe London handed over his beat-up Fender Lead II guitar as an irreverent gift to the burger joint he loved and suggested it would look nice on the wall. Then, another London guitarist and Hard Rock regular sent the cafe his Gibson Les Paul with a note that read, “Mine’s as good as his any day.” The story would have ended there, if the two guitarists were not named Eric Clapton and Pete Townshend.

Today, Hard Rock has evolved into a brand internationally recognized for world-class entertainment, stylish and contemporary design and unparalleled service. The thread that still unites them all is music. At Universal Orlando Resort, guests of Hard Rock Hotel get to live the rock star lifestyle with an exclusive package of theme park benefits at Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure, including free Universal Express Unlimited ride access (theme park admission required) and Early Park Admission. The 650-room hotel, operated by Loews Hotels & Resorts, is located just a short walk, complimentary water taxi or shuttle bus ride from both Universal Orlando Resort theme parks.

  • Leadership Skills and Personal Development – Students study workplace integrity and practice communication tactics for positively influencing their environment.
  • Business Development: People, Process, Product – Lemonis’ famous “three Ps” have assisted countless entrepreneurs around the country. This course explores the importance of a quality product, dedicated people and an efficient process, while preparing students to manage the internal and external factors that often affect business.

And now until February 23, students, parents and teachers can win an all-expense paid trip for their middle or high school classroom to experience the Business Learning Series when they enter online. The incredible grand prize includes:

Atracción Llena De Acción De Fast & Furious Corre Hacia La Escena En Universal Orlando Resort En El 2018 http://media.universalorlando.com/PressRelease/EspanolDetail.aspx?id=54025&ct=27752 La nueva atracción traerá a la vida el mundo “sobrealimentado” de la taquillera franquicia de cine mundial de Universal Pictures



ORLANDO, Florida (25 de agosto de 2015) – Una de las más exitosas franquicias cinematográficas del mundo pronto se convertirá en una de las atracciones más llenas de acción en Universal Studios Florida. Universal Orlando Resort anunció hoy que Fast & Furious: Supercharged se unirá a su increíble reparto de atracciones en el 2018– continuando así el crecimiento sin precedentes del destino.

Los visitantes podrán vivir un explosivo viaje de alto octanaje que fusionará una historia original e increíble tecnología con todo lo que los fanáticos aman del filme – personajes populares, ambientes emocionantes, acción constante y, por supuesto, autos de alta velocidad.

Guiados por las estrellas de las películas Vin Diesel (Dom Toretto), Dwayne Johnson (Hobbs), Michelle Rodriguez (Letty) y Tyrese Gibson (Roman), los visitantes se sentirán parte de la familia “Fast”  cuando embarquen en una electrizante y nueva aventura de Fast & Furious (Rápido y Furioso por su título en español). Los visitantes serán sumergidos en el mundo clandestino de las carreras de autos  que se hicieron famosas en las películas, explorarán la sede de Toretto y su equipo, y hasta podrán ver algunos de los autos sobrealimentados que vieron en la pantalla grande.  Luego, los visitantes abordarán vehículos especialmente diseñados y despegarán en un viaje lleno de adrenalina con sus estrellas favoritas de las películas.

Fast & Furious es la franquicia cinematográfica de Universal Pictures que más ha recaudado en la taquilla en la historia. Desde el estreno de la primera película en el 2001, la serie de Fast & Furious se convirtió en un fenómeno cultural. Las siete películas han logrado recaudar cerca de $3.9 mil millones mundialmente en la taquilla. La más reciente película Furious 7 (Rápido y Furioso 7) fue estrenada el pasado abril y se convirtió en el quinto filme que más ha recaudado en la taquilla en la historia, con más de $1.5 mil millones mundialmente. Además, Universal Studios Hollywood introdujo Fast & Furious – Supercharged este verano, que sirve como la gran final de su mundialmente famoso Studio Tour.

Fast & Furious: Supercharged reemplazará a Beetlejuice Graveyard Revue y Disaster: A Major Motion Picture Starting You! en Universal Studios Florida. Disaster cerrará el 8 de septiembre, y Beetlejuice cerrará más adelante este año  para dar paso a la nueva atracción.

Más detalles acerca de la atracción de “Fast & Furious” de Universal Orlando serán revelados más adelante. Manténgase al tanto a www.universaorlando.com para más información.

The Walking Dead” de AMC regresa a las “Halloween Horror Nights http://media.universalorlando.com/PressRelease/EspanolDetail.aspx?id=54013&ct=27752 “The Walking Dead” de AMC regresa a las “Halloween Horror Nights”
de Universal Studios Hollywood y Universal Orlando Resort para dar rienda suelta al terror
de la quinta temporada en los eventos de Halloween más esperados
y extremos de Estados Unidos


Universal City, Ca., Orlando, Fla., 30 de julio de 2015 — El insaciable apetito del país por disfrutar de “The Walking Dead” de AMC continuará aterrorizando Universal Studios Hollywood y Universal Orlando Resort cuando los momentos más intensos de la quinta temporada de la serie de televisión ganadora de premios Emmy Award® “contagie” las “Halloween Horror Nights” a partir del 18 de septiembre de 2015.

El tema subyacente de estos laberintos será intentar escaparse del terror de los muertos vivientes y de la brutalidad inhumana de la raza humana. Para escapar, los visitantes recorrerán auténticas recreaciones tridimensionales de una de las series de televisión más comentadas: “The Walking Dead”.

Siguiendo los pasos del elenco de “The Walking Dead”, los visitantes comenzarán el recorrido en el recinto seguro Terminus, donde el hambre atroz ha consumido las almas dementes que viven allí. A medida que el caos se extiende, los visitantes se encontrarán con atrocidades aún peores mientras se tropiezan con caminantes “W” descuartizados, presencian el horror de las víctimas perseguidas por los muertos vivos y se paran sobre el muelle de carga del depósito Del Arno Food para hacer frente a las hordas de caminantes “W”.

“Estoy muy contento de continuar expandiendo el universo de ‘The Walking Dead’ con Universal Studios Hollywood y Universal Orlando, y darle a los fanáticos la oportunidad de vivir algunos de los momentos más angustiosos y llenos de suspensos de nuestra serie,” dijo Greg Nicotero, productor ejecutivo y supervisor de maquillaje con efectos especiales de la serie. “‘Halloween Horror Nights’ es el estándar que todos los demás eventos de Halloween tratan de emular, así que traer a caminantes auténticos a este evento, además de otros grandes del horror, es lo máximo”.

“Nos encanta darle a los fanáticos de ‘The Walking Dead’ muchas maneras distintas de vivir la serie, así que estamos emocionados de colaborar otra vez con los equipos de Universal Studios Hollywood y Universal Orlando en estos laberintos, que realmente traerán la intensidad del show a la vida,” dijo Theresa Beyer, vicepresidente sénior de promociones, activaciones y asociaciones para AMC. “Estamos emocionados que pondremos a los fanáticos cara a cara con algunas de las escenas más memorables y aterradoras de la quinta temporada.”

Este año, cuando Universal Studios Hollywood presente el laberinto original “The Walking Dead: Wolves Not Far”, cobrará vida uno de los laberintos más grandes, extensos y horripilantes jamás creados en el destino de la costa oeste de “Halloween Horror Nights”. Esta experiencia, completamente nueva, contará con el doble de caminantes, caminantes nunca antes vistos, y estará situada en una nueva ubicación dentro del parque temático.

“Al igual que los fanáticos que esperan ansiosamente el próximo episodio o el regreso de la temporada de 'The Walking Dead’, este fenomenal show se ha convertido en una tradición de ‘Halloween Horror Nights’ y nuestros visitantes esperan con gran entusiasmo disfrutar de un nuevo laberinto de ‘The Walking Dead’ todos los años”, comentó John Murdy, director creativo de Universal Studios Hollywood y productor ejecutivo de “Halloween Horror Nights”. “Somos afortunados por contar con la experiencia del equipo creativo del show, quienes trabajan en colaboración con nosotros para crear una auténtica representación viviente de la serie; y, para nuestros fanáticos, nuestros laberintos son lo que más y mejor se parece a vivir en lo que quedaría tras un apocalipsis de zombis”.

En la casa embrujada de “The Walking Dead” en Universal Orlando Resort se presentará una multitud de caminantes y se recrearán tenebrosamente las escenas, los lugares y el terror que los visitantes ya vieron en sus pantallas de televisión. Las retorcidas mentes del equipo de “Halloween Horror Nights” de Universal Orlando están utilizando tácticas novedosas para incorporar el horror de la quinta temporada en el laberinto de este año e, incluso, ubican a sus visitantes en la icónica escena del banco de alimentos inundado, donde estarán rodeados de miles de galones de agua llenos de caminantes hambrientos de carne.

“Hemos sido afortunados de poder recrear muchos momentos terroríficos en los últimos años y, del mismo modo que llevan la serie a otro nivel todos los años, nosotros lo hicimos con nuestros entornos”, dice Michael Aiello, director de desarrollo creativo del equipo de Entretenimiento de Universal Orlando.  “Representar fielmente la quinta temporada ha permitido incorporar elementos nuevos y, literalmente, ubicamos a nuestros invitados en el rol de líderes mientras intentan evitar a una multitud de caminantes”.

“Halloween Horror Nights” de Universal es el evento extremo de Halloween más importante. Durante más de 20 años, viajeros de todo el mundo han visitado “Halloween Horror Nights” en Orlando y Hollywood para convertirse en víctimas de su propia película de terror. Se construyen muchas casas embrujadas de calidad cinematográfica para todo el evento, inspiradas en emblemáticas y exitosas películas de horror, series de televisión o en acechadoras historias reales originales. Diversas “zonas del terror” también se infiltran en “Halloween Horror Nights”, diseñadas para generar una incesante sensación de miedo y para aterrorizar a los visitantes mientras se trasladan en la oscuridad, de un tenebroso laberinto a otro.

Pronto se dará a conocer más información sobre las “Halloween Horror Nights” de Universal. Para obtener más información sobre las Halloween Horror Nights en Universal Studios Hollywood o Universal Orlando Resort, visita www.HalloweenHorrorNights.com.

“The Purge” de Universal Pictures atrae a los visitantes a “Halloween Horror Nights” http://media.universalorlando.com/PressRelease/EspanolDetail.aspx?id=54015&ct=27752 “The Purge” de Universal Pictures atrae a los visitantes a “Halloween Horror Nights” en Universal Studios Hollywood y Universal Orlando Resort, a partir del viernes 18 de septiembre

La experiencia totalmente nueva “Terror Tram: Survive the Purge” provocará miedo desenfrenado en el famoso estudio de filmación de Hollywood

La cautivante y completamente nueva casa embrujada desatará el terror de “The Purge” en Orlando

Universal City, Ca, 17 de agosto de 2015 - A partir del viernes 18 de septiembre, la purga anual comenzará en “Halloween Horror Nights”, en Universal Studios Hollywood y Universal Orlando Resort, cuando ambos parques estrenen las experiencias inquietantemente reales y totalmente nuevas inspiradas en la popular saga de películas de la franquicia de Universal Pictures creada por el escritor y director James DeMonaco y producida por Blumhouse Productions y Platinum Doom.

Los visitantes intentarán sobrevivir durante la noche, a medida que se sumergen en el depravado mundo de la película, en el que todos los delitos son declarados legales como parte de la purga de 12 horas sancionada todos los años por el gobierno.

Durante la experiencia “Terror Tram: Survive the Purge” en Universal Studios Hollywood, los visitantes se enfrentarán a ciudadanos moralmente depravados que toman las calles para eliminar del país a aquellas personas consideradas no deseables, sin temor a represalias. Tras reconocer que no todos los ciudadanos eligen cazar durante la purga, una nueva “fiesta de la purga” les dará la bienvenida a los visitantes en honor a esta digna tradición nacional, mediante la reproducción de los dramáticos acontecimientos de la noche en grandes pantallas de video, ubicadas alrededor del famoso estudio de filmación de Universal, hasta que la experiencia se convierte rápidamente en una pesadilla viviente inolvidable.

Una vez a bordo del “Terror Tram,” los visitantes se encontrarán a merced de los vigilantes afectados que buscan aniquilar a miles de personas. Al dar un paseo por el famoso estudio de filmación (el mismo lugar en el que se originó el género de películas de terror), los visitantes tendrán que depender de la astucia, la suerte y la velocidad para burlar y sobrevivir a la anarquía desatada por ciudadanos que alguna vez fueron normales y que ahora se transformaron en criminales sádicos.

“El ‘Terror Tram’ de este año se aprovecha de la vulnerabilidad de nuestros visitantes a medida que recorren la oscuridad de nuestro estudio de filmación, famoso en todo el mundo y rodeado de icónicos escenarios de terror, y consideran la posibilidad teórica de una verdadera ‘purga’”, afirmó John Murdy, director creativo de Universal Studios Hollywood y productor ejecutivo de “Halloween Horror Nights”. “Nos esforzamos constantemente por elevar los estándares al ofrecer experiencias terroríficas ideales, y el estudio de filmación por la noche plagado de personajes reprensibles es una forma de asustar de verdad a nuestros visitantes”.

Para obtener más información sobre la nueva experiencia “Terror Tram: Survive the Purge” en “Halloween Horror Nights”, haz clic aquí.
El terrorífico laberinto “Purge” de Universal Orlando estará basado en las películas increíblemente populares y aterradoras, y colocará a los visitantes en medio de una caótica noche de purga, en la que la tradición ha comenzado. A medida que recorren el laberinto, rápido se darán cuenta de que son el blanco de la purga de este año. Los visitantes tendrán que escapar de las garras de decenas de vigilantes enmascarados que no se detendrán ante nada para purgar.

“Gracias al éxito de la zona de terror del año pasado, esta vez nuestros visitantes vivirán su propia ‘noche de purga’ en los confines de una nueva experiencia en una casa embrujada”, explicó Michael Aiello, director de desarrollo creativo del equipo de entretenimiento. “Al igual que en la película, los visitantes se encontrarán al alcance de los asesinos más sádicos que puedan imaginar. Su único deseo y su única necesidad es expresar su derecho a purgar, y eso es lo que harán”.

“Halloween Horror Nights” de Universal es el evento de Halloween más importante de la industria. Desde hace más de 20 años, visitantes de todo el mundo llegan a Orlando y a Hollywood buscando convertirse en víctimas de su propia película de terror en “Halloween Horror Nights”. A lo largo de todo el evento, encontrarán varias casas embrujadas que parecen salidas de un plató cinematográfico y están basadas en una gran variedad de relatos terroríficos, desde clásicos del cine “slasher” a exitosas series de terror de la televisión, e incluso espeluznantes historias originales. Diversas “zonas del terror” también se infiltran en “Halloween Horror Nights”, diseñadas para generar una incesante sensación de miedo y para aterrorizar a los visitantes mientras se trasladan en la oscuridad, de un tenebroso laberinto a otro.

Atração Emocionante Fast & Furious Entra Em Cena No Universal Orlando Resort Em 2018 http://media.universalorlando.com/PressRelease/PortuguesDetail.aspx?id=54743&ct=27752

A nova atração terá o mundo tunado de uma das franquias cinematográficas de maior sucesso global da Universal Pictures


ORLANDO, Fla. (25 de agosto de 2015) – Uma das franquias cinematográficas mais bem sucedidas do mundo se tornará, em breve, uma das atrações mais cheias de ação do Universal Studios Florida. O Universal Orlando Resort anunciou hoje que Fast & Furious: Supercharged se juntará ao seu incrível lineup de atrações em 2018 – continuando o crescimento sem precedentes do destino turístico.

Os visitantes vivenciarão uma jornada altamente energética que funde um enredo original e tecnologia excepcional com tudo o que os fãs amam nos filmes – os personagens famosos, ambientes estimulantes, ação ininterrupta e, claro, carros de corrida.

Guiados pelos astros Vin Diesel (Dom Toretto), Dwayne Johnson (Hobbs), Michelle Rodriguez (Letty) e Tyrese Gibson (Roman), os visitantes se sentirão parte da “família Velozes” ao embarcarem em uma nova e emocionante aventura de Fast & Furious (Velozes e Furiosos, título em português). Eles mergulharão no mundo da corrida underground, que ficou famosa nos filmes, explorarão a sede da equipe Toretto e ainda poderão conferir alguns dos carros tunados que viram nas telonas. Depois, os visitantes embarcarão em veículos especialmente desenhados e será dada a largada para uma aventura cheia de adrenalina pulsante com as estrelas favoritas dos filmes.

Fast & Furious (Velozes e Furiosos) é uma das franquias cinematográficas de maior sucesso de todos os tempos da Universal Pictures. Desde o lançamento do primeiro filme, em 2001, os filmes Fast & Furious se tornaram um fenômeno cultural. Juntos, os sete filmes arrecadaram aproximadamente US$ 3,9 bilhões de bilheteria em todo o mundo. O mais recente, Furious 7 (Velozes e Furiosos 7), estreou em abril e se tornou a quinta maior arrecadação de todos os tempos, com mais de $1,5 bilhões de dólares nas bilheterias de todo o mundo. E em junho, Universal Studios Hollywood inaugurou seu próprio Fast & Furious – Supercharged, que serve de “grand finale” para o seu mundialmente famoso Studio Tour.

Fast & Furious: Supercharged vai substituir as atrações Beetlejuice Graveyard Revue e Disaster: A Major Motion Picture Starring You! no parque Universal Studios Florida. Disaster será fechada em 8 de setembro e Beetlejuice se encerrará no fim deste ano para dar lugar à nova atração.

Mais detalhes sobre a atração Fast & Furious no Universal Orlando ainda serão divulgados. Acesse Universalorlando.com para mais informações.

ORLANDO, Fla. (May 28, 2015) – Universal Orlando Resort today announced a project of remarkable vision: to bring to life an entirely new water theme park experience. Called Volcano Bay at Universal Orlando Resort, it will join Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure and become the resort’s third incredibly immersive park.

Universal’s Volcano Bay will be a place for the entire family. It will be a whole new generation of experience that reimagines what it means to be a water park.

Imagine a place that offers radically innovative, thrilling attractions, peaceful moments of relaxation and an inspired guest experience that will forever change the perception of water theme parks. It will be set in a highly themed, completely immersive environment inspired by postcard-perfect tropical islands. And it will be the kind of special place that only the Universal team – the same team that has changed the face of Universal Orlando Resort in recent years - can envision and create.

Universal’s Volcano Bay will be located within Universal Orlando Resort, just south of the Cabana Bay Beach Resort. Work is already underway and more details will be released in the future.

Universal’s Volcano Bay is the next in a series of boldly creative experiences that have opened and will continue to open at Universal Orlando. It began with The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade in 2010 and quickly moved to Despicable Me Minion Mayhem, Springfield, hometown to America’s favorite animated family, The Simpsons, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley, eight new venues at Universal CityWalk, the breathtaking Cabana Bay Beach Resort and more.

King Kong Ganha Vida No Universal Orlando Resort Em Uma Espetacular Nova Atração http://media.universalorlando.com/PressRelease/PortuguesDetail.aspx?id=52866&ct=27752 "Skull Island: Reign of Kong" é a nova geração da lenda Kong


ORLANDO, Flórida. (7 de maio de 2015) – O King Kong vai dominar no Universal Orlando Resort no próximo ano em uma espetacular atração: "Skull Island: Reign of Kong."


A nova atração será inaugurada no verão americano de 2016 no parque Universal’s Islands of Adventure – e será uma nova e intensa aventura, concebida em um ambiente totalmente temático. Skull Island: Reign of Kong imergirá os visitantes em uma história narrada de forma poderosa, onde eles se tornam parte da nova era da lenda Kong.

A aventura começa com os visitantes sendo transportados para um mundo misterioso e primitivo, com a missão de descobrir criaturas de origem desconhecida – mas logo precisarão lutar pela própria sobrevivência. A jornada os levará por um antigo templo habitado por nativos hostis, uma perigosa selva dominada por criaturas pré-históricas, um submundo de cavernas agourentas que escondem terrores inomináveis – e os deixará cara a cara com o próprio Kong, uma criatura colossal.

A equipe do Universal Creative está trabalhando próximo a Peter Jackson, famoso diretor do filme blockbuster de 2005, "King Kong", para imergir os visitantes nessa aventura inacreditável.

"O King Kong é uma lenda cinematográfica de Hollywood com enorme participação na nossa história e no nosso futuro", disse Mike West, Produtor Executivo do Universal Creative. "Ele nos dá a oportunidade de visitar tudo o que torna nossa história cinematográfica tão especial e tudo o que faz as atrações do nosso parque temático tão espetaculares. Mal podemos esperar para trazê-lo de volta à vida de uma maneira tão épica."

Conhecido como "a oitava maravilha do mundo", o Kong tem sido chamado de "a experiência para a qual os filmes foram inventados." Desde a primeira vez que apareceu nas telonas, em 1933, "King Kong" foi refilmado duas vezes – a cada vez em uma escala tremenda – , e ganhou sete estatuetas do Oscar e 3 indicações ao Golden Globe.

E agora – de uma maneira ainda mais grandiosa e realista – a história do Kong continua a crescer. "Skull Island: Reign of Kong" será inaugurada no verão americano de 2016. Mais detalhes sobre a mega atração serão revelados posteriormente. Visite www.universalorlando.com/ReignofKong para mais informações.

KING KONG ‘RUGE’ A LA VIDA EN UNIVERSAL ORLANDO RESORT EN UNA INNOVADORA NUEVA ATRACCIÓN http://media.universalorlando.com/PressRelease/EspanolDetail.aspx?id=52872&ct=27752

ORLANDO, Florida. (6 de mayo de 2015) – El próximo año, King Kong dominará en Universal Orlando Resort en la innovadora atracción “Skull Island: Reign of Kong”.

La nueva atracción se inaugurará en el verano estadounidense de 2016 en Universal’s Islands of Adventure, y esta intensa aventura, completamente nueva, cobrará vida en un ambiente altamente temático. Skull Island: Reign of Kong sumergirá a los visitantes en una historia poderosa, donde serán parte de la próxima generación de la leyenda de Kong.

La aventura comienza cuando los visitantes son transportados a lo más profundo de un mundo salvaje y misterioso, donde su misión es descubrir criaturas de origen desconocido, pero pronto se encontrarán luchando por su propia supervivencia. Su viaje los conducirá a través de un antiguo templo habitado por nativos hostiles, una peligrosa jungla gobernada por criaturas prehistóricas, un tenebroso mundo subterráneo de cuevas que ocultan terrores inimaginables, y un encuentro cara a cara con el colosal Kong.

“King Kong es una leyenda cinematográfica de Hollywood y una parte importante de nuestro pasado y nuestro futuro”, dijo Mike West, productor ejecutivo de Universal Creative. “Nos da la oportunidad de acceder a todo aquello que hace que nuestra historia del cine sea tan especial, y a todo aquello que hace que nuestras atracciones de los parques temáticos sean tan espectaculares. Estamos ansiosos que cobre vida de esta forma tan épica”.

Conocido como “la octava maravilla del mundo”, Kong ha sido reconocido como “la experiencia por la que se inventaron las películas”. Desde su primera aparición en la pantalla en 1933, “King Kong” ha sido recreada dos veces, cada vez de forma más asombrosa, por lo que obtuvo siete Oscar y tres nominaciones a los Globos de Oro.

Y ahora, de una forma aún más grandiosa y más realista, la leyenda de Kong sigue creciendo. “Skull Island: Reign of Kong” se inaugurará en el verano de 2016. Próximamente se publicarán más detalles sobre esta mega atracción. Para obtener más información, visite www.universalorlando.com/ReignofKong.

Hard Rock Hotel at Universal Orlando Debuts Stylish New Guest Rooms Inspired by the Essence of Rock http://media.universalorlando.com/PressRelease/detail.aspx?id=51302&ct=27752
Guest Room Mirrors Become An Interactive Experience for Guests of All Ages

ORLANDO, Fla. (February 11, 2015) – Inspired by music and the hotel’s on-site location at Universal Orlando Resort, the newly renovated guest rooms at Hard Rock Hotel capture the vibe of rock against a backdrop of clean and contemporary surfaces. The new look features a mix of retro-inspired shapes, patterns and colors paired with sleek-lined details in the place where Hotel California became a reality.

“We are excited to reveal a totally new and distinctive look for our guest rooms and corridors,” says Managing Director Carlton Hudson. “Guests are already telling us the transformation is off the charts.” Check out the total transformation of one room from start to finish here in a time-lapse video.

Rock fashion inspired the patterned headboard in the bedroom and the tufted wall covering at the vanity. The etched mirror at the headboard features an oversized peace symbol, while the wall mirror features the heights of famous musicians, offering guests of all ages the chance to see which celebrity is their same height.

Artwork in the new rooms takes literal components of music such as drumsticks and speakers and turns them into multi-colored graphic expressions in the space. The contrast of subtle retro nods and modern execution creates a space that is relevant, inspired and fun. Accents of hot raspberry are used in the corridors while the guest rooms feature a palette of cool gray and light cream with pops of color.

Guests staying at Hard Rock Hotel at Universal Orlando receive an exclusive package of theme park benefits at Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure including free Universal Express Unlimited ride access (theme park admission required) and Early Park Admission. The 650-room hotel, operated by Loews Hotels & Resorts, is located just a short walk, complimentary water taxi or shuttle bus ride from both Universal Orlando Resort theme parks. In addition, The Sound of Your Stay is Hard Rock’s free all-encompassing music amenity program that gives every guest access to experiences ranging from a selection of electric guitars to choose from and jam out on to a 15-song curated playlist. The property also features an award-winning swimming pool with underwater sound system, a world-class music memorabilia collection and special events including Velvet Sessions, a series of rock ‘n’ roll cocktail parties and lobby concerts, and Wine Riffs, a cutting-edge event exploring the relationship among wine, food and music.

Internationally recognized as a world-class entertainment and lifestyle brand, Hard Rock Hotels offer stylish and contemporary design, unparalleled service and the thread that unites them all – music. Hard Rock's current Hotel portfolio is located in the world's most desirable resort destinations, as well as urban gateway cities. The dynamic properties cater to the evolving and distinctive needs of today's cosmopolitan, modern travelers, who seek a reprieve from traditional, predictable accommodations, whether for business or leisure travel.

ORLANDO, Flórida, 11 de dezembro de 2014 – O mais novo restaurante do Universal CityWalk, The Cowfish, foi oficialmente inaugurado, trazendo o original "Sushi Burger Bar" ao coração do complexo de entretenimento do Universal Orlando. The Cowfish consagrou-se primeiro na Carolina do Norte, nos Estados Unidos, e apresenta um excelente menu que tem algo para cada pessoa, incluindo os inovadores sushi rolls, hambúrgueres artesanais exclusivos e o "Burgushi" – uma fusão moderna de hambúrguer e sushi que oferece o melhor dos dois mundos. "Burgushi" inclui os sushi rolls criados com componentes de hambúrgueres e sanduíches montados no estilo e com ingredientes de um sushi.

Os fundadores, Marcus Hall e Alan Springate e o Universal Orlando Resort trabalharam juntos para trazer esse conceito exclusivo de refeições no Universal CityWalk. Os visitantes que conhecerem este restaurante eclético de três andares poderão desfrutar de um menu inovador, elaborado a partir de ingredientes frescos, ao ar livre, com vistas incríveis do CityWalk, decoração colorida e obras de arte personalizadas, música vibrante e muito mais.

Os clientes no The Cowfish podem saborear criações inconfundíveis do cardápio, como The Cowfish Bento Box (uma refeição combo, que inclui um mini hambúrguer gourmet, batata doce frita, pepino tailandês, edamame e uma seleção de quatro peças de sushi roll), “The Prime Time” Filet & Lobster Burgushi Roll (lagosta e pepinos cobertos com filé mignon temperado, grelhado e mal passado, fatias de cogumelos portabella fritas no óleo de trufa, com cebolinha e maionese picante) e The Texas Longhorn (um hambúrguer de carne com queijo cheddar, rodelas de cebola, bacon jalapeño, molho barbecue picante, alface e tomate em um pão de brioche). Os visitantes também podem desfrutar de aperitivos para a família, milkshakes artesanais, saladas do tamanho de um prato principal e divertidas sobremesas caseiras.

The Cowfish está localizado no primeiro andar do CityWalk, ao lado do Red Oven Pizza Bakery. No segundo andar, há uma entrada pelos fundos localizada em frente ao Bob Marley: A Tribute to Freedom. Sua inauguração vem para completar a expansão histórica do Universal CityWalk e um ano épico para o Universal Orlando Resort. Outros novos pontos de encontro recentemente abertos como parte da expansão, incluem o VIVO Italian Kitchen, o Red Oven Pizza Bakery, o Antojitos Authentic Mexican Food e o Hot Dog Hall of Fame.
