Universal Studios Hollywood Shakes Up Earthquake Attraction, Brings Back Vintage Glamor Trams & More To Celebrate Tour’s 60th Anniversary

Universal is shaking things up to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of its iconic Hollywood Studio Tour.

Chief among the attractions is the return of original red and white candy-striped Glamor Trams. While Universal now runs all-electric vehicles, guests will have the opportunity to get a look at some of the classic cars and take a photo in front of an original, fully restored 1964 vintage Glamor Tram.

Other throwback photo opps being added to the tour include the theme park’s original hanging Jaws shark, a giant King Kong backdrop and the first-ever approved replica of the Hollywood Sign to be situated along the backlot in celebration of the Hollywood Sign’s centennial.

Among the biggest changes is that the Earthquake—The Big One attraction, inaugurated in 1989, has undergone a top-to-bottom renovation leveraging contemporary technology and aesthetics.

Additionally, at Courthouse Square, where scenes from the Back to the Future movies were filmed, guests will see an original time machine picture car on display plus the Doc Brown character roaming the area. There will also be a behemoth dimensional tyrannosaurus rex dinosaur display.

Finally, Tour veterans will get to revisit the vintage 1976 Runaway Train.
