Besides DreamWorks Land, visitors to Universal Studios Florida can look forward to new shows. The first is “CineSational: A Symphonic Spectacular”, which uses various technologies to bring movie moments from blockbusters such as “Harry Potter”, “Jurassic World” and “Jaws” to life. Over 200 fountains up to 131 feet (nearly 40 meters) high, projections, an original composition with newly arranged scores carefully matched to each scene and more than 600 drones are used in the heart of the Studios’ lagoon.

Harry Potter fans who visit “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade” at the directly adjacent Universal Islands of Adventure theme park on selected evenings can marvel at the new projection show “Hogwarts Always”. Set against the backdrop of Hogwarts Castle, the show presents special moments from the Harry Potter films, including the ride on the Hogwarts Express and the Sorting Ceremony.

Furthermore, the “Universal Mega Movie Parade” will kick off on July 3 at Universal Studios Florida, which will be the largest daytime parade Universal has ever hosted. Guests will be able to spot some of their favourite movie characters from iconic films such as “E.T.”, “Jaws”, “Ghostbusters”, “Jurassic World”, Illumination’s “Sing” and DreamWorks Animation’s “Trolls”. ■
