|"Mother! Oh, God Mother! Blood! Blood!"|
The particular day we were visiting Universal, there were also lots (and I mean lots) of Japanese tourists; consisting mainly of teenage girls. I swear I have never heard so many freakishly high-pitched screams in my life. Things got even more interesting when Norman chased the tram....
|Oh, Norman. You are so full of kill...|
Some of cooler gift shop items were Psycho-related. They had one of those little ceramic, light-up versions of the Bates mansion. My wife collects those types of things, so I kind of thought about buying it. But they, as it the norm (see what I did there?) with theme park swag, were all ridiculously overpriced;. I did find a few online that were much cheaper.
There were many other neat things to see on the Tram Tour. The War of the Worlds "jumbo jet crash" set was really cool. I immeadiately noticed there no bodies in the wreckage. Not very realistic, but that probably would have been too intense for the timid (it is a family theme park afterall). And the Earthquake simulator thing was very convincing. Looking forward to going again someday. I hear Universal is building a Transformers ride, so maybe we can see that in a few years.
