Today Universal Orlando Resort announced plenty of upcoming experiences for 2012, including enhancements to its venerable Spiderman ride, which will be fully updated to take advantage of new technology (and will have a special guest appearance by legend Stan Lee); a new interactive parade with plenty of characters, a night time show with projections on waterfalls to honor the 100 year anniversary of Universal Studios, a brand-new Blue Man Group show, and much more.
If you’d like to see the video for yourself, click it at left to launch the full 8-minute announcement (you’ll also see a take-over by Minions, who are very excited about the new Despicable Me ride that takes over the old Jimmy Neutron space this summer).
The experiences start in February, when Blue Man Group and a new mini golf course both open at Universal, and continue on through the summer. The plans for the closed Jaws and Amity areas are still to be announced, although rumors lean heavily in favor of more Harry Potter.
