Universal Studios has allowed guests to see the magic of
making movies since 1915, but the official “GlamorTram” Tours began on this day
in 1964. Guests are taken throughout the studios sound stages and backlot
“neighborhoods,” but what has always made the trip special were the extra
special effects that guests would experience while on the tram. The different
effects has changed over the years but has included the collapsing bridge, a
flash flood, an earthquake, an attack by Jaws, a rockslide, a runaway train,
the avalanche tunnel, an encounter with King Kong and others.
