Newest Universal Orlando Attractions Open May 8

The much-ballyhooed Superstar Parade and Cinematic Spectacular at Universal Orlando will open together May 8, reports Orlando Theme Park News.

Described as the next chapter in Universal Orlando’s “Year To Be Here,” the attractions follow the re-opening of The Blue Man Group, the relaunch of The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man and the opening of the new Hollywood Drive-In Miniature Golf course at CityWalk.

Universal’s Superstar Parade features larger-than-life floats, state-of-the-art technology and hundreds of street performers. Billed as a new form of interactive entertainment, the parade will encourage guests to sing and dance with their favorite characters and take part in meet-and-greets throughout the day.

Academy Award-winning actor Morgan Freeman will narrate Universal’s Cinematic Spectacular: 100 Years of Movie Memories, which is a celebration of the studio’s most iconic films.

Highlights from nearly 200 films will be shown

in crystal-clear clarity on cutting-edge waterfall screens within the Universal Studios lagoon — surrounded by colorful, dramatically synchronized fountains and pyrotechnics and all against a powerful musical score.  The experience will take guests on an emotional journey through epic cinematic moments filled with heroes, horror, laughter, good vs. evil and triumph.

The final piece in Universal’s expansion puzzle comes with the launch of the new ride Despicable Me Minion Mayhem this summer.
