"It just feels so good”: Universal Studios theme park reopens

Fans rejoiced as Universal Studios Hollywood reopened its doors

for the first time in over a year

(SOUNDBITE) (English) PARK VISITOR, LOGAN MAURO, SAYING: "It just feels so good to be back here and exploring this place that means so much and getting to do these things and see the new things that they've done since closing a year ago. It kind of touches and kind of heals you in a way that you haven't felt in a year."

(SOUNDBITE) (English) PARK VISITOR, CHRIS KIDDER, SAYING: "It's amazing to be back in a theme park and to be able to walk around and to be able to go on rides and have great food again, have a butter beer again. Totally awesome to be back here, so."


There were new experiences for visitors including an updated ‘Jurassic World’ ride

though some rides and indoor restaurants remained closed
