It seems that when you work for Aces Casino, one of the greatest orange county casino party companies in SoCal, you tend to be tough to impress. You see, when you WORK in the field of entertainment, and you're VERY good at what you do, your threshold of what entertains you tends to be very difficult to find.
Enter Universal Studios Hollywood. OK, OK, we admit it. We're big saps. We love "touristy" Hollywood stuff. We don't know why this is, but this place always does the trick for the Aces Casino team. So, when the Fourth of July holiday rolled around and our crazy casino party crew wanted to go out and see some sort of "show" together, we picked "The House that Jaws Built," none other than Universal Studios.
We left the facilities VERY early in the morning to try to get out there by the time the park opened, so we could do it up right and not have to wait in line for too long to be able to take in all of the parts of the park we wanted to see. (Traffic was light, that was nice.)
So... We suppose that It's time to give our awards for our field trip to Universal Studios Hollywood, and list our top 5 favorite things that we saw on our July 4th visit.....
#5 -- Jurassic Park Ride
If for nothing more than that 90-foot drop into the water below, this ride may have fallen off the Aces Casino charts. It's fun, if not a little dated. Some of the attraction wasn't even operating correctly (Dinosaur head our of water with mechanism showing, plastic bag over where a T-Rex is supposed to be right before you drop into the drink), but it was hot, and we needed that cool-off at the end of the ride.
