As a west coast resident, I’m looking forward to the next few years at our local parks. What would you like to see, to help make Southern California an even more attractive location for theme park fans? Readers’ Opinions From James Trexen on April 11, 2014 at 5:40 PM As it stands, Disney doesn’t need to do anything to keep people coming to their CA parks. The burden rests on Universal, and they need to come up with more exclusive attractions for their Hollywood park, otherwise people who regularly visit Universal Orlando will see no reason to go to a park with only half of the rides they like.

Right? (sound of crickets) Continuing our focus on Universal Studios Hollywood this week, we should note that the park has opened a new “grab-and-go” restaurant, the Palace Theatre Cafe , located in the former retail location next to Mel’s Diner. By the way, I wouldn’t recommend actually trying to just “grab-and-go” with food at any such restaurant serving pre-packaged meals. I’m pretty sure that a more accurate description for these types of places should be “grab-and-pay-and-go.” USH has brought back its Waterworld show after a refurbishment that included the transfer of the show to a new production company, the same outfit that oversees the show in Osaka and Singapore.
