In a recent thread on Reddit, fans discussed the future of E.T. Adventure at Universal Studios Florida.
FYI: The discussion took place on the fan-run Universal Orlando Resort community page of the social media platform.
User u/MovieFanZ5026 started the discussion/thread titled ‘How much longer will ET stay at Universal?’ with the following:
“Now I know because of the whole Steven Spielberg contract thing, we can’t get rid of ET or else we lose him as a creative consultant. I don’t know if removing ET will also have him removing all of Jurassic Park from Islands of Adventure as well but I feel like eventually it might be time to move on from ET. It does get people it’s not as busy as it used to be. It is also the only remaining opening day attraction. So, how much longer do you think ET will be at Universal?”
Some of the replies to this subject are really quite interesting. You can read several replies from other Universal Orlando fans below:
u/icericericire: “Hopefully forever. You don’t see Disney hunting down all of their opening day attractions. Universal can keep 1 can’t they???”
u/darthjoey91: “I really hope they don’t touch ET beyond refurbishment. Despite the wizard stuff. ET is really the only ride that actually feels magically, especially when you finally take off over the city.”
u/dirtypoololdman: “It’s one of the only dark rides at universal that doesn’t include screens, they better not ever get rid of it. It’s a classic.”
u/tylersixxfive: “Don’t touch it! Best ride on the universal side. I would walk through the [queue] and just smell the smell and be satisfied!”
u/wikiwombat: “Hopefully a very long time. I wish they would do a deep refurbishment and update some stuff, but I’ll take it as it is over getting rid of it.”
