    Shrek in Hollywood is closing and becoming The DreamWorks Theater featuring Kung Fu Panda.

    Nothing official in regards to Orlando's. But I'm hearing something coming down the track...fast.

    Didn't shrek already close in Hollywood on the 13th? You know the same day that GMR and UOE closed? Good timing on your part, Universal.:rolleyes:

    Might as well call that front section of the park "Illumination Blvd" or something like that.

    Just bad planning on universal's part if they wanted shrek 4D's closure to be a special event. It got easily overshadowed by both GMR and UOE's closure.

    How does 2 attractions at Disney in Florida overshadow an attraction at Universal in California?

    Does anyone actually care that Shrek is closing? I'm just happy something else is going in there, not a fan.

    If only this was taking F&F place on the Disaster plot. But, this is a ride that park desperately needs. This is good news! I was getting worried it wouldn't happen :)

    Yes! Please close it, it's easily a top contender for worst attraction in Orlando.

    If you're hinting at what it looks like you're hinting at, would this still be a dark ride? Because I'm not sure if that building is big enough.

    Didn't you hear? There's a new premium AP option for both resorts. One of the benefits is your own private jet. Makes flying cross-country a piece of cake!

    It may be a perfect spot for the Walking Dead attraction.

    Hah that's something! Too bad. It's a cute show. Oh well. Any idea as to when it'll close and what will replace it?

    Eh, both of these statements are very true. I just find it really odd it was the same day. August 13 should for now on be official close outdated rides day at theme parks world wide lol.

    If Shrek closes soon, do you think this could open in 2019?
