Episode 61 - Twister: Ride it Out!

Hey there, folks! SurferClock here, along with TAP-G, to bring you the latest episode of "What's the Attraction?"

This week's podcast takes us back over to Universal Studios Florida to review another of those long-standing attractions that Universal seems to have in ever-dwindling abundance. As rides and shows are razed or fixed up, some seem to stand the test of time. Twister: Ride it Out! opened in Universal Studios Florida in May of 1997, and actually experienced a delayed opening due to tornadoes that ravaged Central Florida in February of that same year. The attraction continues to be something of a draw for guests visiting the park, and those very same guests complained hard and loud enough to bring it out of a state of seasonal operation in 2009, only a month after that seasonal operation began.

Was it really worth all that? Will you have to, as Universal claims you must on their website, "grab onto the railing or be sucked into the swirling vortex of a tornado?" Find out with our review!
