When someone says Universal Studios Hollywood™, people automatically think of movies and television shows, and the humans who star in them. But what about the animals who add so much to our entertainment? With discount tickets for Universal Studios Hollywood™ you can now see those loveable animals up close.
Universal Studios Hollywood™ has one animal show, Universal’s Animal Actors, and they put all of their focus into making it a top-quality attraction. It is the perfect way to spend a little “down” time in the midst of the whirlwind of the rest of the park.
People generally think of only certain animals, like dogs, as being easily trained, but the Animal Actors show proof that many animals are smarter than we humans give them credit for. The show features cats, rats, raccoons, guinea pigs, parrots, pigs…the list goes on. Seriously, who knew a cat could be trained?
The trainers have taught the animals a variety of entertaining tricks, but working with animals can be unpredictable. If you have discount tickets for Universal Studios Hollywood™ that afford you to be in the park for multiple days, you could view the show repeatedly and probably see a different show every time!
If you have ever seen the movie “Evan Almighty,” you know that there were a lot of animals on set. (Yes, some were CGI, but many were live). Did you ever wonder how they managed to keep them all under control and get them to do things on cue?
Well, the show includes an introduction video that gives some background on how the animals are chosen and trained, as well as how they are treated and what is expected of them on set. There are funny anecdotes about working with animals scattered throughout the show as well.
The video is probably one of the coolest things, because it explains how many of the animals are rescues who have been trained to entertain. And really, what’s not to love about that?
So what animals will you see that you might recognize? Past animal actors have included the pigs from the movie “Babe” and the monkey from the “Night at the Museum” movie series. Current animals include a few of the owls from the “Harry Potter” movies.
The highlight of the show is when the live animals re-enact scenes from “The Secret Life of Pets.” Kids will love seeing familiar scenes literally brought to life. If they’re lucky, they may get picked to participate in the show and help out with the tricks.
Even though it’s only one show, Universal Studios Hollywood™ maintains its quality and dedication to entertaining people. So make sure you get your discount tickets for Universal Studios Hollywood™ so you can go see Universal’s Animal Actors!
