Spring Break Fun!

Spring break is a national American holiday. Typically, a week long, this holiday occurs in either March or April. It is the last long vacation before summer, and everyone is excited when it comes around. Due to the time of year, when people think of spring break they picture warm sunny days outside. During this holiday, families often take short trips to places they have never been before.

A popular spring destination is Los Angeles, California. There are many tourist activities spread across the city, but a particularly famous one is Universal Studios. People travel from all over the world to the city just to see the famous amusement park.  There are many rides that are designed around world renowned movies. Although the rides are known to attract people, the studio tours are also responsible for drawing people to the park. On the studio tour, everyone sits on a tram that takes you around frequently used movie sets. As you ride there is a guide at the front of the tram sharing interesting facts about the sets. The most common type of sets used are practical sets. Practical sets are physical sets that you can use for many different things. Some of the sets that are regularly used are streets of New York, London, and Paris.

When directors film a movie that contains complex concepts or figures, such as the gorilla King Kong, they use a computer-generated images or green screens. Towards the end of the studio tour, the tram goes into a dark trailer. Inside the trailer are computer generated images of the characters from Fast and Furious 7. The guide tells us that a dangerous killer is on the loose, and then, suddenly, they jump into their cars and speed down a highway. The film scenario was projected on the walls, and the tram jostled about so that it felt as if you were actually inside the movie.

Universal Studios is known worldwide for its amazing shows, tours, and rides. The park holds something for everyone, for the excitement of the place never dies down. I think that everyone should go at some point in their life and experience the positive energy of Hollywood's best movies.
