Universal Stuidos – Blast from the Past

More from my America trip with my wife Sarah from almost 10 years ago now, When we were in America the first place we visited was LA, while we were there we did what most tourists do and checked out the Theme Parks and this post is dedicated to one of those very theme parks Universal Studios. We spent the whole day there arriving early in the morning and leaving in the early evening and then strolling down Universal Walk.

One of the cool attractions at the time was cars from Fast and the Furious on display naturally we took a few photos and some quick video clips

Fast and The Furious
As we most visitors to the Universal Studios theme park we took the tour around the park, we saw some awesome car specials effects and we also got the street set of one Sarah’s favourite shows at the time Desperate Housewives, Sarah was pretty excited to get a quick peak down Wisteria Lane
Some of the other exhibits around the Universal Studios theme park at the time featured movies such as Jurassic Park and the The Mummy, it was just pretty amazing though to walk around the park and try and pick out little parks of the park that had been used in movies or TV shows and there a quite a few about.

This was also the was also the same day I completed the Ifly experience mentioned in the first Blast from the Past check it out here 

Spoiler Alert Disney Land coming in the next few weeks

Blast From the Past – IFly Los Angeles

To give you all a bit of history on myself and Kieran and any other regular contributors to the site such as Damo we have introduced a new recurring weekly post Blast from the Past. This post will feature either videos or photos from something in the authors past. This could range from significant life events to travel or anything else there imagination was  able to conjure up at some point in there past.

For me personally for the next few months I will focus on travel photo’s and videos taken whilst  travelling both throughout Australia and Overseas.

I thought that I would start with a video from my trip to America (USA) whilst there we spent our first week in Los Angeles which was pretty awesome we did some some great things and ticked off a few items that were previously on the bucket list. One of those items was Universal Studios, the video below is not about Universal Studios but Universal Walk just outside the theme park which is full of shops and small attractions.

One of those attractions was Ifly which is indoor sky diving in a large wind tunnel type thing, this was an awesome experience, now its not the rush of actual skydiving which I have since done but still pretty damm good all the same. Its heaps of fun without the extreme risk such as jumping out of a perfectly good plan

As mentioned above this is the first of a brand new post type to Mates Madness as a result we would love your feedback. Also have you tried indoor skydiving before what did you think?

Cheers

Matt
