Trivia / Twister...Ride it Out

Go To

  • Hostility on the Set: Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt grew to dislike each other so much during the course of the filming of Twister that they refused to make the pre-show video together. Instead, each filmed their part separately, and the video has continuous cuts to each actor.
  • No Export for You: The attraction only existed at Universal Studios Florida.
  • Recycled Set:
    • The firehouse facade from Ghostbusters Spooktacular was retained. As a Shout-Out, one of the windows on it had an advertisement for a "Paranormal Travel Agency". Some of its interior was removed during construction of Hollywood Rip, Ride, Rockit, but the facade itself still remains to this day.
    • Advertisement:
    • As you walked into the main theatre, a set of lockers from the previous attraction could be seen.
  • Release Date Change: The release date was changed from March 1998 to May of that same year instead.
  • Role Reprisal: Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt returned for the attraction.
  • Too Soon:
    • The attraction was originally slated to open in March 1998, but ended up being pushed back several months out of respect, because in the February of that same year there had been an outbreak of tornadoes in Central Florida that claimed 42 lives and injured 260 others, the deadliest outbreak in Florida history.
    • The number on the attraction's firehouse facade was originally "911", but after the events of 9/11, it was changed to "291".
  • What Could Have Been: An early concept for the replacing Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon attraction had it basically being "Twister: Under New Management", where Jimmy would interrupt Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt in the middle of their pre-show speeches, and then proceed to take over the attraction and do his own spin on it. It was later decided to make the new attraction its own thing, likely to fix the area's Network Decay problem.
