Originally filming under the name “Vortex 3,” it came to light this week that Sharknado 3 was actually the movie filming at Universal Orlando.

The third installment of the film series, which stars Ian Ziering, Tara Reid and Cassie Scerbo, will follow the storm-surge of flying sharks causing mass destruction in the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C., before roaring down the Eastern Seaboard and into Florida. Once in the Sunshine State, they attack a guests at a theme park in Orlando.

Sharknado 3 is the follow-up sequel to 2014’s Sharknado 2: The Second One, which is currently Syfy’s most watched original movie of all time and includes numerous cameos from celebrities. I’m sure this second sequel will also have many cameos.

Universal Orlando Starts Offering Hot Butterbeer

hot Butterbeer at Universal OrlandoButterbeer is served several ways at Universal Orlando – cold, frozen, and even as an ice cream flavor. Now, just in time for the colder Florida weather, the theme park is offering the flavor as a hot beverage.

That’s right, you can now order hot Butterbeer at both sections of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

In Diagon Alley at Universal Studios, it will be served at Leaky Cauldron, The Hopping Pot, and The Fountain of Fair Fortune. In Hogsmeade at Islands of Adventure, it will be available at Three Broomsticks and Hog’s Head Pub. It will be served year-round.

Since the opening of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade in June 2010, millions of Butterbeers have been sold each year at Universal Orlando. I’m sure this new hot version will help increase those numbers.
