... we even coped a spray from the T-Rex in the struggle. Thankfully King Kong was the stronger out of the two and we were able to continue on our way. The finale of the tour was a high speed, super charged chase with special effects in a scene from Fast and Furious. It was so real and gave us a great insight into the making of movies.
The Simpsons ride was next followed by Transformers in 3D, both full of trills and ducking and diving. Alex and the kids went ...
