Universal Studios Hollywood to Update Long-Running Earthquake Attraction for Studio Tour’s 60th Anniversary

The Studio Tour at Universal Studios Hollywood will celebrate its 60th anniversary this year, and one of its long-running attractions will be receiving an update to celebrate.

What’s Happening:

  • In 1964, Universal Studios Hollywood first rolled out its fleet of Glamor Trams, inviting tourists to “see film rushes of current productions, both feature and television, being made at Universal City.”
  • This year, the beloved attraction celebrates its 60th anniversary, and plans are in the works to celebrate in a big way.
  • One of the Studio Tour’s longest running elements – Earthquake – is set to receive an update featuring updated and contemporary technology and aesthetics.
  • First opening in 1989, the Earthquake portion of the Studio Tour has had guests clinging for their lives with its fabricated but eerily realistic 8.3 magnitude quake ever since – even as more modern attractions have come and gone surrounding it.
  • It even inspired its own dedicated attraction at Universal Studios Florida, which was remodeled into Disaster! A Major Motion Picture Ride…Starring You! before being removed in 2015 to make way for Fast & Furious: Supercharged.
  • Universal Studios Hollywood has promised that more details regarding their plans for the 60th anniversary in spring and summer will be shared soon.
