March 25, 2015 – For those who are not aware, the NBCUniversal Experience recently underwent a minor refurbishment for its routine prop rotation, showcasing some of the studio and theme park’s most memorable items and memorabilia. While the bulk of the collection remains the same, Universal recently refreshed some of the exhibit’s window displays in an continuing effort to promote the theme park’s semicentennial. In addition to the park, Universal also added a slew of props from their large film catalog, including items from the Jurassic Park franchise, The Theory of Everything, Bring It On and more.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at the new displays at the NBCUniversal Experience.
While new film props have been added, the NBCUniversal Experience’s primary feature remains the theme park’s fiftieth anniversary.
First off, let’s take a look at some Studio Tour uniforms from the past – starting with 1964.
Next, wardrobe and props from NBC’s Parks and Recreation and the Fast and Furious franchise.
Moving on to the next display, we have Hook’s wardrobe from NBC’s Peter Pan Live followed by some props from Warehouse, sketches from JAWS and props from Jurassic Park.
