Sharknado Recap Featured

The storm of the century hit Universal Orlando last night, but it wasn’t a thunderstorm or a hurricane, it was a Sharknado.

To put it plainly, last night’s premiere of Sharknado 3 was freaking EPIC! The makers of the Syfy cult classic series unleashed two hour monsoon of elaborate deaths-by-flying-sharks and cameos from the likes of Jerry Springer, Mark Cuban and Game of Thrones scribe George R.R. Martin. My favorite cameo, however, came in the form of the films setting at both Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure. Several of the most memorable scenes from Sharknado 3 were filmed in the parks back in February including these jaw-esome #UniversalMoments
