Disaster! A Major Motion Picture Ride…Starring You! was a dark ride partial tram tour and show at Universal Studios Florida. Set on a soundstage of a fictitious movie company, Disaster! was a based on the park’s former Earthquake: The Big One ride, which comically illustrates how special effects are filmed for use in movies. The attraction’s climax casted the riders as movie extras for a movie finale scene involving an earthquake in a subway station. Using high-speed editing techniques, the riders got to see themselves in the form of a movie trailer that included film sequences shot throughout the attraction’s pre-show and main ride.
In August 2015, Universal announced that the attraction would close on September 8, 2015 to make way for a new attraction based on The Fast and the Furious franchise named The Fast and the Furious: Supercharged.
Last day of Disaster at Universal. 10 minute wait. A mean person would say the people have spoken
