Curious George Goes to Town History
Curious George Goes to Town opened in Universal Studios Florida in Orlando in 1998. The play area took over the space once occupied by The Bates Mansion Set, which was used in the 1990 made-for-TV movie Psycho IV: The Beginning. This movie was a prequel to the 1960 Hitchcock movie Psycho.
UO Fan Guide Attraction Tip
Curious George Goes to Town is a very wet play area. There are lots of hoses, spigots, and cannons that make quite a splash.
Plan on getting at least a little wet in this area, and be aware - if you are in the wrong place at the wrong time, you could get drenched. It's common to see adults running from the water as children run toward it.
