What was Universal thinking?

DreamWorks Land is a captivating new section of Universal Orlando Resort that is set to bring guests into the enchanting world of DreamWorks Animation later this year.

“Scary” New Ride Shocks Fans

So far, the reception of the DreamWorks Land has been extremely positive. Between attractions like Shreks Swamp, Gabbys Dollhouse, the How to Train Your Dragon attraction, and Kung Fu Panda village, this new DreamWorks destination should have something for everyone. Guests will get to meet their favorite characters and explore this DreamWorks imagination celebration in just a few short months. Younger fans were thrilled to see the inclusion of the Trolls franchise in the land with Poppy’s Playground and the Trolls Trollercoaster. These adorable musical comedies have gained a fanbase amongst Universal’s younger audience.

However, new photos of the main Trolls attraction, the Trolls Trollercoaster, have left many fans feeling confused as to what exactly Universal was thinking. With the ride vehicles’ unsettling design, it is not hard to imagine some fans feeling frightened by it. After a photo of the ride went viral online, fans have had their fair share of criticism.

New Rides Arrive Summer 2024

It is too early to know if this is how the rides will look upon completion. With all the negative feedback, Universal may make some changes before the official opening later this year. The DreamWorks Land is slated for an opening this summer, and even with this minor hiccup, fans are feeling incredibly excited about this new development.
