This is one of the main draws in the 45 minute Glam Tram tour of the Backlots of Universal Studios, it is the area beside the Psycho house (known as Psycho Flats) used to be the site of Falls Lake - a large water-tank and waterfall used in numerous productions. the area is currently occupied by the huge outdoor airplane crash set built for War of the Worlds. A commercial 747 aircraft was leased by the production and then chopped into pieces and transported to Universal, where the full set has been left fully dressed as it was during filming. The only change made to the set following filming was to move the houses on the right of the tram off the road (so the tram can pass safely).
