That is a damn shame.  That was a fun ride.  We get rid of this but keep in Twister?  Bah!

I thought the ride was outdated and that was about 5 years ago.  I'd like to see a revamp of it though.

I haven't been on this ride in years, but I remember that I loved it! Too bad.

And now I feel like there's not enough of a reason for me to go to. Jaws was one of the rides I'd wanted to go on since I was a little girl, and with it gone the park just isn't as appealing to me.

Maybe if I found a nice discount and got a group of friends to go with me...

The park has been slowly getting rid of rides that I have had an interest in going to over these past years and replacing them with crap I have no interest in.  No more King Kong, no more Ghostbusters, and no more Jaws.

I've been to Universal Studios Florida twice and never rode that.  In fact, I don't even remember it being there.  It's probably my fault it's closing.

Universal Studios closed two months later. I'm glad I got to experience the ride in all its cheesey glory, Back to the Future, too. That really p**sed me off, ditching Back to the Future for a crap Simpsons ride. Everyone and everything acted like the Simpsons had just came out and was the best thing ever when that movie came out. And you know, it was pretty awful, too. Hatred

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
