Ride the Movies: Universal Studios Florida opened its gates to the public Monday for three weeks of “sneak previews” of a Hollywood-style attraction expected to draw up to 6 million visitors in its first year. The $600-million attraction, which will officially open June 7, is expected to give stiff competition to the Disney-MGM Studios theme park, which opened a year ago just a few miles down the highway. Top Universal shows are based on King Kong, E.T. the Extraterrestrial, Jaws the killer shark and the 1906 San Francisco earthquake.
