  1. Do you think removing 3D from Forbidden Journey is a sign of Universal moving away from using 3D glasses in future attractions?
  2. The outlined area gives us about four and a half acres to work with. Also consider that Nintendo will likely have a lot of verticality. The concept art of the Japan version makes me think that some structures will be built on top of the Mario Kart show building. I think putting Nintendo here is possible. Will Nintendo go here? I don't know. I'm not sure if the tram driver is guessing or actually knows something.
  3. What do you think is the likelihood of the Studio Tour loading station moving to the site of the newly demolished sound stages?
  4. There is some Potter merchandise sold at the Universal Studios Store in CityWalk.
  5. Since the glasses are gone, maybe they could up the intensity of the KUKA arms.
  6. I find this to be a small upgrade to the physical portions of the ride and a big downgrade to the screen portions of the ride. Overall I think the bad out weighs the good.
  7. screens

    Screen based attractions may be cheap for Universal to implement. But they are also cheap for the competition to implement. A motion seat with a vr headset might come to your local arcade, but a physical dark ride most likely won't. Universal needs to provide high end physical dark rides that no one other than Disney could replicate.
  8. screens

    They could, but it would put themselves in competition Six Flags, regional parks, and small entertainment centers.
  9. screens

    I got myself a new PSVR. It is really cool and immersive. The problem is that it is so immersive that when I went to Universal later a lot of its screen based attractions seemed underwhelming. Transformers and Forbidden Journey are still fun as they have a lot of physical elements to them. Most of the other screen based stuff now seem outdated compared to the VR. The VR seemed to steal a lot of the Universal 'magic' away from me. I think Universal needs to shift their focus to attractions with physical environments or else they will find themselves in competition with consumer electronics.
  10. A Three Broomsticks employee told me that warm butterbeer is coming sometime next month.
  11. Knotts Berry Farm

    How do the crowds at Knott's Scary Farm compare to HHN?
  12. During the daytime they often close the line to the Walking Dead attraction early and turn people away while it is still advertised on the printed schedule as being open. Do you think this practice needs to stop?
  13. To clarify, they did not close the line early because there were not enough guests. Rather, they closed the line early because there were too many guests in line. They want to everyone to get through before the scare actors are supposed to take their break.
  14. When I went went to the park today, they were closing the line for the Waling dead before the posted end times. For example, on the schedule one of the scare times was listed as 4:00 to 4:45. I got to the attraction at 4:25 and they just closed the line for the attraction right before I got there. This is unacceptable. When they post a range of times on a schedule, they should allow anyone who comes within that range to experience the attraction.
  15. I think the most fair comparison would be comparing the the $330 Costco DCA only pass to Universal's Costco passes at $110 and $159. These are the passes someone going into Costco will see.
