Rehearsals underway for Universal Studios’ new lagoon show


We’ve been following the development of upcoming nighttime lagoon show at Universal Studios since October, when work began on reconstructing the former Cinesphere 360 show barges. Rehearsals of the new “Universal’s Cinematic Spectacular: 100 Years of Movie Memories” show are being performed after the park closes to guests. We have some video to share, showing a few moments of the fireworks as seen from outside the park.

Testing of Universal's Cinematic Spectacular at Universal Studios Florida

One of the interesting details caught by the camera are reflections of the fireworks on the glass surface of the Doubletree hotel towers. This hotel is approximately 3/4 mile away from the camera.

The view here is directly east. Team member parking is in the foreground. You might spot some construction barrels, team member parking is being reconfigured to boost the number of parking spots. You might also see the profile of The Simpsons Ride show building in the video.  

Keep in mind that there is more to this show than fireworks:

Narrated by award-winning actor and recent Golden Globe – Cecil B. DeMille honoree, Morgan Freeman, Universal Orlando’s brand-new nighttime show, Universal’s Cinematic Spectacular, will celebrate the most powerful and emotional moments from Universal Pictures’ most iconic films – all on cutting-edge waterfall screens within the Universal Studios lagoon and surrounded by colorful fountains and pyrotechnics. The experience will take guests on a journey through epic cinematic moments filled with heroes, horror, laughter, good vs. evil and triumph. The new show opens this spring, runs all summer and then on select nights through the end of the year.

It looks like it will be a fantastic show! See our previous articles for a look at some of the fountains and other effects that have been installed in the lagoon. Stay tuned for coverage of the new show when it premieres.
