What @*Q* said.
Wasn't that the plan last year too?
Okay...I'm the worst. What is SNW
Super Nintendo World.
AH....I still call it Dueling Dragons
DC is being replaced? I thought expanded???
Nope, get your last rides in soon
What's the plan for that area? I've been off the internets for a while, you'll have to catch me up
Still too early to tell. I would like a multi launch highly themed coaster but they didn't ask what I wanted
Is the timeline for SNW still 2020? Last I saw was DC replacement 2019 (which seems like a really quick but possible turnaround) and SNW 2020.
As far as I know, that is still the plan. D.C. closing after the Summer '17 season and KidZone closing after HHNs ends.
If things were up to me I'd say screw putting Nintendo into USF...while it'll be awesome, it's really going to continue the mess that is Universal Studios...Build it in the new park...and forget trashing Dragon Challenge too. There's still the Toon Lagoon amphitheater and Lost Continent that could and should be priorities before more Potter.
Nah, LC is a beautiful land - perhaps the prettiest at IoA - with a good restaurant. I'd be happy if it stays as is (I'd be happier if PF were replaced with a dark ride, but we can't get everything we want).
As for DC, the coasters are old and will need to be rebuilt in any case and Uni is (thankfully) moving away from bare coasters. Besides, they know exactly what they want to put in that area... more Potter. Toon Lagoon seems to be caught up in the confusion regarding which family property (Dreamworks, Illumination, Nintendo) goes where as well as the question of how much they want to expand Marvel.
No area at Uni needs renovation more than Kidzone, and Nintendo seems to be the most developed land concept. There are plenty of IPs for the new park.
After kid zone I'd say MSHI needs the most help. I went to Uni for the first time back in March and loved IOA except for this part. It just fault kind of tacky to me which I guess is what they were going for but I just didn't find it that appealing. Isn't there an avengers ride rumored somewhere down the line?
maybe a in park boutique harry potter themed hotel?
Possibly, but a bunch of new shops and (finally) a Potter sit-down restaurant seems like a safer bet. Oh, and a ride too, I guess.
will the dragon challenge replacement be a potter ride or a fantastic beasts ride? I hope its not just another bare coaster. uni needs to do a pirates level boatride imo
They could also bring a full blown Dreamworks hotel too.
You misunderstood me. I love the theme of Lost Continent...it's just that the attractions are weak. Poseidon could be so much more, and Sindbad is a joke. Build a few dark rides/boat rides in this area and it could become top notch!
I could not agree with this more. I just don't want it absorbed into Potter (though I do want more Potter)
