    There was discussion. I don't think it'll ever amount to anything. I think some people just got ahead of themselves when they were refurbishing The Hulk. The idea doesn't necessarily work for IOA anyway, because the only reason the Avengers are so popular right now is the film version, not the comics. I see Disneyland being the ones to open such a ride.

    No D23 and I guess E3. D23 seeing as more info on Star Wars is coming so maybe Uni wanted to say look at this coming right after that.

    I completely forgot about Slop (great acronym). I haven't seen the movie so i'm not sure what the patent would be getting at but it looks like you'd get into some sort of suit. Would be very cool but an ops nightmare when it first opens.

    Ohh wow... this makes sense! The rumored "jumping rollercoaster" patent, the "puzzle theatre" patent, and the "moving hills" patent in Mario Kart diagram. Would have loved to see much of this (albeit, a better themed mine cart coaster, I had expected.) Will be interesting to see what eventuates!

    Is the DK coaster likely to be outdoors? Or will it be indoors? I feel that it would be significantly improved being indoors... but ahh well, what will be will be!

    The Yoshi Island dark ride is news to me - sounds intriguing!

    I don't think the insiders have said the exact plan for it yet.

    The layout posted up above makes it look like it was originally planned to be half-in/half-out, so I wouldn't be surprised to see them follow through on that idea.

    The best news from those leaked plans is they want to keep ET. Also if the new land is half as good as what was originally proposed, it will be a huge step up from Kid-Zone.

    Heck, just a single Mario Kart ride would've been better than Kid-Zone haha! (I was not a fan of Kid-Zone. Poorly themed and outdated area in my opinion). Keen for this! :D

    DK coaster in those plans looks like a re-theme of Woody Woodpecker

    Not saying plans haven't changed or that drawing can't be old/wrong but it is clearly the same layout in the same location.

    I remember hearing about the puzzle theatre patent. What kind of ride would it be, live action? 4-D show?

    Credit to AliciaStella and JungleSkip at OU for pics and info:

    Mario Kart will be fully interactive, the cars look to be equipped with steering wheels, joysticks and boosters. And projectiles connected to a VR rig, like a windshield... This would be a game changer, no doubt. Coolest part looks to be you can take a different route on the track.
