In 1989, C.V. Wood was hired to take a 415 acre piece of land and turn it into a bustling theme park right next door to the Warner Roadshow Movie Studio. The area that he was to use was full of swampland and very difficult to deal with. Wood completed the park in 16 months and used the model of Universal Studios Hollywood as his base for the park. The park opened in 1991 and included attractions such as a tour of the movie studio, a special effects show, a police stunt show, and a Looney Tunes Land for children. It wasn’t until 1992 that the park opened up its first major thrill ride called Batman Adventure-The Ride. In 1995, the first roller coaster to be built in the park opened as Lethal Weapon. The end of the 90s brought prosperity to the park as attendance was at an all time high. The park began to install thrill rides from Zamperla and other coasters like the RoadRunner.
The 2000s was a time of advancement for the park as many new and improved rides and theater shows were added to the park. Rides and experiences like the Harry Potter Experience and The Matrix Exhibit were instant hits and set the stage for the future of the park. Today, the park boasts 4 roller coasters. One of the major coasters is an Intamin launched coaster called Superman Escape that opened in 2005. Another big hit for guests is the Green Lantern coaster that was built by S&S Wordwide in 2011. The coaster is of the El Loco style coasters that have been so successful throughout the world.
