Universal Orlando Resort Guests were treated to a rare sight this past weekend.

As part of its ‘Rings Across America Tour,’ NBC Universal is taking an interactive exhibit of the five life-size Olympic rings 4,000 miles around the country and its latest stop was in Universal Orlando Resort at the entrance of Universal Studios Florida.

Over the weekend, Guests had the opportunity to take photos and enjoy the sights of something that many people never have an opportunity to see in person.

The Winter Olympics will be covered live on NBC and streaming on Peacock beginning February 3.
