Sit back for a fascinating presentation by Cyberdyne Systems, creators of Skynet artificial intelligence. But don't get too comfy. The cyborgs on display have planned a surprise attack and they're coming after YOU. 

As you join forces with the Terminator to battle rogue cyborgs, you'll be thrown into a mix of live action stunts, special effects, and amazing 3-D filmmaking. Dodge plasma blasts. Feel objects whooshing past you. And become completely immersed in the 360-degree action of this thrilling apocalyptic adventure. Mark our words, you'll be back.

Universal Studios Hollywood closed their version of Terminator 2: 3-D in 2012 to make room for the Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem motion simulator attraction.
