On Hulk, everyone knows what is said during the launch. But most don't know about the last line after the train is gone. If you are waiting in row 1 or two, listen for it.

Banner: I think, I think this time it's going to work.

Computer: Warning, coolant levels dropping

Banner: No....No.....Nooooooooo

Train Launch

Computer: Warning, Accelerator Tube Contaminated
-------------------------
On JRPA, after the boat goes down the big hill, the T-rex at the top burps.
I've tried to listen to it from the back row, but can't really hear it.

Take the express entrance to Spider-Man and in one of the offices there are a bunch of fake file cabinets. Look at the stickers on each drawer and there is a name of a superhero/villian.

In If I ran the Zoo near the exit there is a creature that is "quarantinned" under the ground.

There is a plaque/cover of sorts that explains the creature and that he can't come out to play, walk on this plaque and circle it... you will get a surprise from the quartinned creature.

Also, in If I ran the zoo, you can play tic tac toe with one of the other creatures named Joe.

Something I like is when you walk through Port of Entry and you are about half way through and you can hear cats meowing. If you look to your right you can see two fake cats sitting on a balcony.

This might be silly for some of you hardcore US (Universal S.) veterans, but you would be surprised at how many people don't know this one. For some of you that have never sat in the front row of the E.T. ride, there is an E.T. head inside the basket in front of the bikes that goes up and down. The head is up when you see E.T. on the T.V. screen, then it goes down. It was'nt until about the 10th time that I rode it that I noticed the head.

These are great secrets! Does anyone have any more? How about a few more for Universal Studios?

I don't think this is considered a secret, but it's still pretty cool to watch. Sit in the front row of Back To The Future Ride and and look up and around all over while the ride is in progress. You can see a whole bunch of other DELOREANS (the ride vehicles) moving in synchronization. Don't remember if you can see them sitting in the back row.

Actually the head should stay up longer - it's supposed to go down when you arrive at the green planet (since he'd have to leave the basket to go make everyone feel better).

A lot of people seem to miss Botanicus appearing in the indoor portion of the queue. It wasn't until our third or fourth visit that we finally saw him up there (we usually hit E.T. first thing, so we fly through the queue).

How about all the wacky stuff in the Mummy queue (like the air gun)? Someone must know more about those (I've never figured out the thing that has the spots to put your hand on).

Someone on each side has to put their hands on in order to get the MedJai symbol to light up above you. The air gun only works when the blue light is on.

The airblast in the ROTM queue can only go off every 30 seconds. There is a scarab and a "magic mirror." The "mirror" shows people on a bridge ahead of you in line. When the scarab turns bright blue, you can put your hand on the scarab. This will cause an air blast to the people on the bridge. Reactions vary.

No secrets. Just wanted to keep this thread alive. I will be going to HHN's in 10 days. Any secrets or little details worth noticing during HHN's?

Anyone have more for HHN or Universal Studios? We'll take more IOA if you have 'em, too. I know there's got to be lots more!
