The Studio Tour tram takes visitors to backstage lots where they get a look behind the scenes of the movie and television industry. The tour offers a glimpse of original movie sets, including Steven Spielberg’s “War of the Worlds,” a small town devastated by the crash of a 747 jetliner surrounded by smoking wreckage and shattered debris, and the sets from “Jurassic Park: The Lost World,” the snow-covered town of Whoville from “Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch Who Stole Christmas” and the Psycho house and Bates motel from the classic thriller, “Psycho.”


Revenge of the Mummy — The Ride: Beginning this summer, the psychological thrill coaster attraction will feature “an all-new, more shocking experience,” with special effects and more unexpected twists and turns.

Jurassic Park — The Ride: Billed as the studio’s “most thrilling water ride,” this attraction features hungry dinosaurs and an 84-foot watery plunge. Terminator 2:3D: Take a trip into the future where Terminator robots battle man in an “all-out cyber war.”


Waterworld: Be a part of the hit movie’s action through a live water stunt and pyrotechnic show.
