I'd love to see a Fantasyland style land, where they have 3 or 4 small dark rides.

I wonder where they could get a library of colorful, kid friendly characters that everybody knows and loves that would lend themselves perfectly to this. HRMMMMMMMMM.

Dr. Seuss land. Think of the possibilities: A Grinch Mount Crumpet coaster, the scrapped Lorax ride, the Cat in the Hat, plus a teacup ride and a merry go round. 

The coolest part would be if they did that, they can get creative with the space given. They could have one ride on top of another to save space. 

If they really want to make more family rides that are highly themed and don't take up much space, a Dr Seuss land would be great:

I don't see it coming to fruition anytime soon, but a revamped version of Seuss Landing would be nice in our park.

Project Trailers have now been placed over at the former spot of the Backlot Cafe.

so... does anyone think this area is still for the secret of pets???  I honestly believe the whole thing got cancelled and we might be getting something we haven't mentioned.

I also don't think SLoP is going to happen. Maybe it is, but I seriously doubt it. If it is indeed dead, hopefully whatever replaces it will be just as good, if not better.

Is this area big enough for a jurassic world attraction?

It does seem like SLoP might be under reconsideration. I'm wondering if they've prioritized Nintendoland at this point.

Ohh yea. In the 22-25 /28 lots alone you could fit 2 large attractions. I wouldn't see them Expanding JP tho unless they were to also demo the Character Shop and Jurassic Cafe.

So if they really want to bring Race Thru New York over here, (Again, IF they REALLY want it over here), I have an idea what they could do to apppease the, "this is a waste of space" and "no more simulators" crowd.

Have the tour relocated to the lower lot and put it behind Transformers (Where that cafeteria used to be). Instead of just an open tour center, have the tour and RTNY in the same building. Have the tour queue/NBC experience in the first floor and the mini shows and ride on the second floor. It would make sense considering Fallon is already on the tour. Plus, the ride would be treated more as a small bonus as an "eh, why not" since it would be built above the tour area; not to mention there is no queue for it.

If they did this, I wouldn't mind. This would be the only way they should do it IMO. What do you guys think?

sounds like a great idea but man on man ..... a jimmy fallon attraction??? i personally don't want that here. the queue looks amazing tho! i could also imagine the crowd of people just packing that area like crazy during peak season. A way it could work is to add  a new building connecting to the Jimmy F. attraction and it can serve as a NBC hub/land??
