Sharknado 3 takes a bite out of Universal Orlando


The Sharknado films have destroyed many things, buildings, cars, the Statue of Liberty, but not a theme park.

That looks like it is all going to change when “Sharknado 3” comes to town and takes a bite out of Universal Orlando Resort.

The third installment of the series begins in Washington D.C., and ends at Universal Orlando Resort.  Syfy has been filming at Universal Orlando for about a week and has filmed at several locations throughout the park, including Rip Ride Rockit, New York, the new Cabana Bay Beach Resort and even inside the Universal globe.

“We are having sharks and a sharknado come to Universal Orlando and destroy the park,” said director Anthony C. Ferrante.

The segments shot in Orlando featured Tara Reid, who is now pregnant in the film, Ian Ziering and even WWE Superstar Chris Jericho, who acted as a Rip Ride Rockit attendant.  The film will also have a cameo by the Irish singing duo Jedward.

Be sure to catch “Sharknado 3” when it airs on SyFy in July.
