In the second installment of my Christmas Eve Universal Experience, I will be focusing on the rides Kung Fu Panda, Pets Off the Leash, & Minion Mayhem.
Kung Fu Panda:
This was probably my least favorite part of the day. I am not really a fan of Kung Fu Panda, and I didn’t really find the show to be very immersive. Shrek was definitely better.
Pets off the Leash:
I rode the Pets Off the Leash ride–unfortunately, I lost all my footage from it. I will be going back to Universal soon, so I will try to get it then. Basically, the premise of the ride is that you are a stray dog going through the process of getting adopted by a family. The characters from The Secret Life of Pets make a few appearances to help you out.
While the ride is very cute, it is also very, very slow. This is not a thrill ride at all. It is designed for kids and to put you inside the movie. Once I get footage of the entire ride, I’ll add it to this post, but for now, that’s all I really have to say about it.
While I am also not really a fan of the minion movies, I do like the minion ride. This is one I’ve ridden numerous times, mostly in Hollywood, as I ride it each time I go to the park. I also rode it in Orlando (it’s pretty much the same). I’ve always liked the ride. It’s a simulated rollercoaster where Gru turns everyone into minions, and the girls are put in charge of our training.
