Even as old as Terminator is, this attraction is still relevant. Waiting in the lobby was even entertaining. The special effects were pretty cool. Both my 17 y.o. and 4 y.o. had a good time.

This show seems 20 years old. Time to replace it with something new and exciting like the rest of the 3d attractions. If you are short on time don't bother

I loved it! I've read reviews about it before we arrived here, and I believe that people could expect a little more due to high advertising. Yet, I highly recommend this ride only with 'first in line' pass!

You would stand for 20 minutes then a lady would appear and start acting. You would listen to her for few more minutes then you would get inside a theater and watch some 3D movie etc. It wasn't too bad but not very impressive either...More

Universal: this is your worst attraction it's time to revamp it or replace it.

When I attended the Terminator 2: 3D show at Universal Studios, I was hoping for a new take on the old film in a new 3D format. This might justify the presence of a show about a 20 year old film. Alas, not the case....More
