Exploring Universal Studios Hollywood! [★ ~ CA TRAVEL #7]Friday, December 25, 2015
Day two of our tour consisted of a whole-day stay at Universal Studios Hollywood! I've never been to any theme park overseas so I was very excited for this day!
|Here we are!|
|We have transformed into Minions!!|

|Just look at these cute Minion slippers! （人´∀`*）|
|(Left) They explained how the illusion of a hand being cut (especially in horror stories) is made.|
(Right) They also demonstrated animation of dinosaurs walking.
|There was fire and explosions too!|
We boarded a train with a screen with video playing. It was Jimmy Fallon talking about the tour. Basically we went around the studios around the park where some famous movies were shot. Also, they showed us how effects like rain, water rushing, earthquakes, and plane crashes were done for a movie. More photos below!
|In this neighborhood, they shot some series like Sex and the City.|
|This is part of Baker Street, which imitates the streets in London.|

There was also the Jaws part (apparently I didn't have any photo or video of it... maybe I was too amazed to actually film the scenes) wherein there's a huge shark around a pond(?) and it just went to attack a boat that was there. It was epic!
There was also supposed to be a King Kong part in the Studio Tour, but our batch was not able to go to that because there were technical problems. To make up for it, Universal Studios gave us a One-Time Priority Pass ticket!
