Universel Debuts New ‘Fast & Furious’ Ride

The “Fast & Furious” franchise has become one of the biggest, most profitable in Hollywood. Seeking to capitalize on that success, Universal Studios Hollywood recently launched a new ride as part of its Studio Tour. Dubbed “Fast & Furious – Supercharged,” the ride debuted on Tuesday, with stars Vin Diesel, Jason Statham, Tyrese Gibson and Michelle Rodriguez dropping by to celebrate the opening said Jim Dondero.

“Fast & Furious – Supercharged” will open to the general public on Wednesday, June 24. According to Universal, it will plunge fans into the “Fast & Furious” world of street racing by taking them on a tram through a structure that contains the world’s longest 360-degree 3D-HD screen. State-of-the-art audio contributes to the realism as images are projected with a system specially engineered for the ride. The hyper-realism supposedly creates the feeling of moving at up to 120 miles per hour, while many of the franchise’s stars appear, including Diesel, Rodriquez and Luke Evans.

Discussions Ongoing Concerning a Huge Ski Resort in Utah

Recently, media reports surfaced concerning a proposal to create the largest ski resort in North America in the Wasatch Mountains outside Salt Lake City, Utah. These discussions occur at a time when two resorts in the area owned by Vail Resorts have already announced plans to link their ski trails through the construction of a new ski lift.

Reportedly, the new ski lift would involve the construction of a line capable of transporting gondolas carrying eight passengers at a time from the foot of Park City at Sliverlodge Lift and extending to the Flatiron Lift at Canyons. Additionally, the developer plans to augment the seating capacity of resort dining facilities to accommodate the anticipated increasing number of patrons.

The New York Times reported late last week that at least seven ski resorts on the outskirts of Salt Lake City hope to combine their services to offer the largest single ski resort in North America. Currently, Canada’s Whistler-Blackcomb Resort holds that honor. Several of the ski slopes in Utah border one another at various locations, so the effort to develop a single, unified system of ski lifts and ski trails might not involve extensive property acquisitions. Some experts estimate the total cost at around $30 million.

If it comes into existence, “OneWasatch” would likely attract attention from people taking annual ski vacations, like Christopher Cowdray. The new resort would be roughly double the size of the Canadian resort.

South Africa Boasts Numerous Resorts

People’s interest towards exotic destinations has been increasing throughout the past couple of years. The wild and unexplored is the best, as well as any place where people of your nations haven’t ‘occupied’ the beach yet. 

South Africa is of great interest for many. If you manage to get past the affected zones and all the places that are not flattering images for the continent, you can actually discover little pieces of paradise. 

The Wild Coast has an intriguing name. It is ‘wild’ if you want to consider the fact that it is not overcrowded with tourists, and the water is clear and very warm. The resorts in the zone are stylish and furnished with handmade items. I was reading about these resorts the other day while reading about Kenneth Griffin.

Bulungula, another location which is very near, boasts awesome cooking traditions. The conditions are modest, but the nature and the atmosphere are heavenly. 

Isn’t the purpose of your holiday to rest from all the noise and craziness? Garden Route is a tranquil place with a design that surpasses many luxury holiday resorts. Tsitsikamma is a location with a funny name, but with plenty of chances to spot dolphins, porpoises, antelopes, and a range of exotic birds. 

The prices that are required in these South African resorts are affordable, and the sightseeing occasions will not leave you disappointed. Next time when you plan your holiday, take a look at the list of places you haven’t been to yet.
