Thanks, that's what I thought but as there was some talk of using Express Pass earlier in the thread I was hoping someone could confirm .

It's entirely possible that express pass customers get preferential slots to regular guests, but that's just conjecture on my part. Perhaps only 90% of the ride's potential capacity gets allocated such that where a booking placed by a regular guest may be 5 hours from then, a guest with an express pass may get a slot 30-40 minutes away.

My suspicions regarding this are that there physically isn't room in the (to my recollection quite restrictive) plot that Twister occupied to have a queue area suitable for containing multiple hours' worth of queuing guests, so making the ride reservation-only makes sense.

As an Express pass guest, I like that idea . And I hadn't considered that, it is a small area, isn't it?

I posted it in another thread, but the current rumour is that they are basing it on this ride system:

Also, Jimmy Fallon hosts the Studio Tour at US Hollywood (which is also why he appears in a cameo version in a similar role for the safety video in Jurassic World) so he does has a Universal link already. I think he is much bigger in the states than over here but I love watching the clips from his show on youtube

Rode this on Monday, it was an alright ride, nothing special, but was loitering around the pre-show bit far too long. Hopefully when this is open properly it will be sorted out. The clips and performance was funny however, they will get old quickly if they dont speed up the turn around time
