Universal Orlando Announces Summer Light Show

Starting this summer, Universal Orlando says it will take its nighttime lagoon show to the next level.

The themed resort is launching what it calls the "Universal Orlando's Cinematic Celebration." 

It's a new lagoon evening show, from top to bottom, designed to give guests a brand-new way to cap off their day at the park.

The event, which will take place on selected nights, is being billed as something of a "cinema under the stars," according to a Universal Orlando news release.

The cinematic event will blend fountain-based media, a variety of state-of-the-art technologies and special effects. 

Universal Orlando officials say the show combines an all-new storyline with full panoramic water screens accented by additional multi-layer water screens, pyrotechnics and ... for the first time ... more than 120 dancing fountains and projection mapping.

The goal here is to transform the entire waterfront and surrounding buildings into a vivid celebration of epic movie moments and characters.

Officials say the show requires a new, dedicated viewing area designed specifically for the cinematic theatrics, so the park has built one.

Guests can expect to see moments from the Harry Potter series, as well as larger-than-life moments featuring dinosaurs in Jurassic World, elements of the Fast & the Furious movie franchise, and Minions from the movie series that began with Despicable Me.

That, Universal executives say, is just to name a few of the scenes guests can expect.

The new cinematic experience joins another nighttime show, "The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle" at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal's Islands of Adventure
