Trivia / Terminator 2 3-D: Battle Across Time

Go To

  • Deleted Scene: Workprint footage shows an extra Paddleball Shot of the T-1000 after the Terminator shoots its head in half, where it attempts to get back up, but to no avail.
  • Doing It for the Art: In the behind-the-scenes documentary, Cameron goes to great lengths about how he is essentially treating the attraction as a third Terminator movie.
  • God-Created Canon Foreigner: In this spin-off attraction, James Cameron gives us the flying "Mini Hunters", and more memorably the T-1000000.

  • The Other Darrin: Kimberley Duncan is played by different actors from show to show, and each one has a different take. For example, one acts a lot like an Excited Kids' Show Host, another tends to say "Super!" a lot.
  • Too Soon: For the versions of the show that were at Florida and Hollywood, Sarah Connor showed the audience various clips from the Terminator 2 movie in the pre-show, one of those clips being Sarah's nightmare of the nuclear destruction of Los Angeles. When the show was brought over to Universal Studios Japan, the Los Angeles clips were omitted, so as to not remind Japanese guests of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
  • Unintentional Period Piece: The performance, specifically the original pre-show, which talks about all of the fascinating new technologies that Cyberdyne is working on. Problem is, it first opened in 1996, and it was not updated for a very long time. Most people watching this pre-show probably have smartphones in their pockets and purses, and various gadgets in their homes, that can put to shame the "advanced" computers and robotics on display. To say nothing of the cameo by Shaquille O'Neal. Universal eventually closed the attraction at the Hollywood park in 2012 partly for this reasonnote , and in 2015, they finally updated the pre-show for the Orlando attraction to do away with the more dated elements and give it a more modern aesthetic. The original version is still open at the Japan park for anyone who wants to make like Kyle Reese and go back in time twenty years.

  • What Could Have Been: During its development, the attraction was at one point envisioned as an indoor rollercoaster and later as an interactive shooter ride. Both concepts would've put guests right in the middle of a battle in the post-apocalyptic Los Angeles landscape between Skynet and the surviving humans.
