    Did you really turn a reddit post with 9 upvotes into a whole article? Good lord times are tough.

      They certainly did. Sadly u see a lot of articles doing that. You just ate copying and pasting!! How do you get paid?!

    And don’t you love how they quote a comment then post the comment right under it ? do we really need to read it twice ?
    Having said that I will give you my thoughts on Universal/Islands.
    Islands of adventure made a great ride “Spider Man” and then went over board with screens because spider man did so well.
    The Universal side is the worse, Transformers is a copy of spider man and in my opinion is not as good “Screen ride”. Simpsons “Screen ride” Shrek ” “Screen ride” if you want to call it a ride. Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon ” Screen ride”, Despicable Me Minion Mayhem “Screen ride”, Bourne Stuntacular “Screen show” and the worse ride ever Fast & Furious: Supercharged ” Screen ride”.
    Escape from Gringotts is a great ride but still a screen ride and the mummy borders a screen ride but also good.
    Now lets look at retired screen rides…
    Back to the Future, Jimmy Neutron’s Nicktoon Blast, Terminator and I am sure I am missing others.
    Point is Universal way over did it with screen rides and they seem to have turned a corner because Islands Of adventure may have a few screen rides but they have started to make some of the best rides in Orlando. Skull Island: Reign of Kong, Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, Spider Man are all good rides and they mixed it with some of the best coasters you can ride with Hulk, Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, VelociCoaster and some pretty good water rides.
    I know Minions is replacing Shrek but let’s hope we don’t see any more screen rides from Universal in the future.
