Universal's Twister spin



Universal Studios may have pulled the plug " temporarily " on its Twister attraction following this month's killer storms. But there it was: a full-page color ad splashed across the back of AAA's Going Places magazine, whose 2.1 million copies began reaching mailboxes across Florida and the southeast last week.

Be among the first to survive the fury of an actual tornado with a mind of its own: Twister, touching down at Universal Studios Florida this April!

Placed more than two months ago, the ad could not be stopped -- and indeed, neither can Twister, which Universal spokesman Linda Buckley said still will open sometime this spring.
