    I'll tell you how it is when I beat the whole thing 100%. If I don't do that I never feel like I've really beaten a game. It also helps me get the absolute most out of the games I have.

    I'm over 40 hours in and still haven't gotten to the first dungeon.

    This is going to take a while...

    Capacity would be terrible compared to demand.

    They opened that at USJ which already gets way more people than UOR, their most popular park. I'm sure they can fix that if done well.

    After seeing that video I'd also want something, better. It looks like TSMM with no ride vehicle.

    Beat the games story mode loved it an iconic classic to stand the test of time while also being a master class on open world gaming. I'm just doing shrines and exploring every inch of hyrule now.

    I've always wondered why TSMM has a ride vehicle actually. ;) Doesn't really add much to the gameplay experience if we're being honest. Probably why I rarely ride it at any of the parks that have it (though maus au chocolat is an excellent demonstration that this ride system can actually function as a ride).

    If they can get an immersive interactive walkthrough Zelda attraction using stuff like MagicQuest uses, I think they'd have a massive hit. Of course, as you mentioned capacity would need to be addressed. But I've seen Haunt mazes at parks that have 3 or 4 separate preshow rooms (the same preshow) and several pathways (same scenes) to get more people through. I'm sure Universal could do the same on a huge scale without much effort.

    So, I'm sure it's somewhere in this thread, but I was at US last night with a friend and she was claiming Nintendo-Land will be taking place of the Marvel attractions. Is this accurate? Do we have a theoretical date that this is all supposed to be opened by, or when ground is breaking?

    I doubt marvel is leaving as universal wants to probably keep it as long as they can. But more then likely the following will close for Nintendo
    • Animal actors
    • Curious George
    • Woody woodpecker nuthouse coaster
    • A day in the park with Barney
    • Some backstage stuff
    I doubt ET is on the chopping block. But I could be wrong about that.

    Interesting, I can't say I would mind any of that leaving. Besides ET. Is there some sort of contract that is letting Universal continue the Marvel themed rides even though Disney has purchased them? Do we know when the construction is supposedly taking place?

    There is a marvel contract that says they keep theme parks rights forever as long as they keep up the area. It's going into Kid Zone and should be starting the day of this year according to insiders.

    as I said I could be wrong but I do think it's possible. but steven has said if they get rid of E.T. they have to get rid of Jurassic Park.
