This show seems 20 years old. Time to replace it with something new and exciting like the rest of the 3d attractions. If you are short on time don't bother

I loved it! I've read reviews about it before we arrived here, and I believe that people could expect a little more due to high advertising. Yet, I highly recommend this ride only with 'first in line' pass!

The visual and special effects are terrific, even for a "mature" grandma like me. Loved feeling like on a rollercoaster without breaking my neck. Enjoyed it so much I rode it twice.

I saw (presumably) the same attraction in Universal Orlando. The setup is amusing - Cyberdyne Systems presents itself as the future of humankind and then it turns into a battle between Sarah / John Connor, Arnie vs various terminators. Five years ago this would have been a cool ride but these days... 3D is everywhere thanks no less to James... More

You would stand for 20 minutes then a lady would appear and start acting. You would listen to her for few more minutes then you would get inside a theater and watch some 3D movie etc. It wasn't too bad but not very impressive either and I wouldn't have gone there if i knew what I was about to see.

Universal: this is your worst attraction it's time to revamp it or replace it.

When I attended the Terminator 2: 3D show at Universal Studios, I was hoping for a new take on the old film in a new 3D format. This might justify the presence of a show about a 20 year old film. Alas, not the case. The show consisted of some old footage shot during the production of T2, with some... More
