Universal Orlando's 2012 Plans

The Universal Orlando Resort has made two large announcements regarding the resort's 2012 plans.  One park will see a totally new attraction added, and the other will feature an exciting upgrade to one of its best.

Universal Studios Florida will be replacing Jimmy Neutron with a new simulator featuring the characters from Despicable Me.  Guests will "laugh as they embark on an entirely-new, high-tech 3-D digital adventure with their favorite characters from the film, marvel as they explore Gru's lair and descent into his secret lab, and celebrate as they are swept into a first-ever, minion inspired, interactive dance party."

The Amazing Adventures of Spider Man at Islands of Adventure is already one of the best theme park attractions on the planet, and will be even better next year.  The ride will soon be featuring all new animation done in the highest resolution HD available.  Above is an new example still from the start of the ride, and I have to say the detail is amazing.  The park will take advantage of the new details to bring in new items for fans to find along the way.
