It has been awhile since I have been to Universal. A lot of the older rides are still there, Earthquake has been renamed to Disaster. Twister is still there, sadly the Back to the Future ride is gone and replaced with The Simpsons. Even Jaws is gone, with replacement of the Harry Potter expansion. As sad as it is, these changed have to be made to keep up to date with current things.
The new Simpsons area, with Moe's tavern, Krusty Burger, Kwik e Mart etc is really sweet. They are still working on it, you can see the Duff Brewery and another ride in the works behind the wall.
I am hoping they build a replica of the Simpson Home on Evergreen Terrace, where you can take a picture on the infamous brown couch in their living room and get a tour of all the rooms we have come to know over the last 25+ years.
The Transformers ride, sits almost in the center of the park, very large, grey building with a giant Prime on top. Really looks pretty cool, tho the 2 hour wait time detoured me from riding it.
Universal has a Speed Pass option that you pay for on top of your ticket price, was like 100$PP more and I was surprised to see how many people forked over the money for it.
We got the hopper option and after doing almost everything we wanted in Universal, we headed to Adventure Island. AI has a lot to offer and it seems you cannot do both parks in 1 day, unless perhaps you have the speed pass?
I will go back in a few years, and most probably take a day for each park.
