  • Jurassic Park expansion at IOA?

    This is just a rumor I've been hearing but Screamscare is reporting there maybe something in the works for new rides ain the JP area of IOA. The rumors are ripe with the possibility of a indoor B&M flying/winged coaster which I don't think there's much room ufor that. I also think the nearby neighborhoods wouldn't like that as well. I'm hoping if the rumors are true, that we finally get a Jeep safari tour type ride. Here's the link to the Screamscape article. Islands of Adventure

      Well there is a lot in flux... the difference between Universal and Disney, especially when it comes to building new attractions, is that there is A LOT more fluctuation between concepts, and when it comes time to build.

      I remember when WWOHP was announced... there were so many things that were still no locked down.

      I still remember hearing various concepts like a roller coaster where you are on a broom that would take you through the various buildings of hogsmemde and through the 3 broom sticks. While a cool concept, it wouldn't have worked for a lot of reasons.

      While I know there are about 3 - 4 concepts with 1 concept being the favorite (last I heard) they still haven't presented them to Steven Spielberg for final approval. And once Steven gets involved there will be more tweaks, and changes

        Well......seems like the jeep ride is out and Amber Mine coaster and Discovery Center dark ride are in.........

        .com/2013/01/16/words-of-hatetofly-you-bet-jurassic/

        What I find amazing is that this coaster is opening in 2014........the same year that the Seven Dwarfs coaster is opening.........despite construction not even starting yet! How does Universal continually beat Disney at streamlining its decision/planning/constructing/opening process???

              USF:
              Transformers
              Potter
              Springfield
              Kidzone (Bluesky)
              New Stage Show (Bluesky)

              IOA:
              Hogwarts Express
              Seuss Expansion(Bluesky)
              LOTR (Bluesky)
              JP Expansion (Bluesky)
              New Stage Show (Bluesky)
              New Night Show (Bluesky)

              Resort Wide:
              New Hotel
              Water Park (Bluesky)
              New Stage Show (Bluesky)

              All the things with the Bluesky tag are things that are in various forms of concept, design, approval, funding etc

              There are A LOT of projects right now with who moves to the front and back burners changing monthly, weekly, and sometimes daily.

                    And, since Jurassic Park 4 was officially announced, an expansion in the parks makes sense. I hope they do go through with it. There really is a lot going on at the Universal parks, it's like a spark was lit.

                      I think that spark was Comcast buying up almost all of NBC/Universal and then the addition of Harry Potter.
