  • RUMOR: Wizarding World AA Dragons. IDEA: Potter Creatures Could Replace Jurasic Park

    Source: Behind The Thrills

    There is talk of animatronic dragons being created for Wizarding World. As to where they will go, it has been suggested they might be placed in the Dueling Challenge coaster area - formerly Dueling Dragons. It would be much grander to place the dragons in the Jurasic Park area, and retheme it to the Potterverse's mythological creatures. .
    • Jurassic Park River Adventure would turn into a mythalogical creatures magic river adventure. It would contain a plentitude of dragons and other fascinating potter creatures,i.e., a monsterous basilisk serpentine, a giant talking acromantula spider, a unicorn, centaurs, a winged thestrais horse, hippogriffs, werewolves, a giant three-headed dog, etc. Animatronic owls (and Fang and Fawkes) of course would also be featured. Duing the indoor portion of the ride, guests would experience Dobby, Kreacher, shape shifting boggarts, and souless dementors,
    • Pteranodon Flyers would be replaced with a a flying dragon ride - perhaps a good name might be Soaring Young Dragons (as the Potter adult dragons are much larger than the pteranodons featuered.
    • Jurasic Park Discovery Center would become a goblin-centric attraction that houses both the GrinGotts bank and the Goblin Liason Office in the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures.
    • Camp Jurrasic would become Camp Harry, including a story hour, and meet and greet area for look alike HP characters and their non-mythological pets.

        Really... My question why dont they create a harry potter land featuring everything..
        They are destroying the park if they do this because harry potter is taking over.

          Rumors mixed with arm chair imagineering is a bad combo for consistency on the board.

            @Phantom boy the WWoHP is NOT invading Jurassic Park. There might be a bit of land cooped after this next expansion, but JP is staying.

                  @Phantom Boy - I really don't see it as an US vs WDW I don't think you can just experience one and not experience the other. They both offer worthwhile experiences, and if they are going to compete for $$$ and try to out do each other, then BRING IT ON! lol

                    NOTHING could be better for Disney World than a HUGELY successful Universal Studios just down the road. Why? Competition! One need only look at WDW and its totally stale and often broken parks and attractions to see that they are coasting by on their reputation rather than actually delivering on it.

                    But Harry Potter has changed all that. We could very well see Disney completely change that attitude, but only if they sense that the competition might take a slice out of their business.

                    There are so many wonderful proposals for WDW. But, the chances are slim that you'll see many of the good ones unless Universal's success continues and the crowds keep demanding more butter beer.

                    There is no doubt that Universal wants to rapidly expand upon the success of Wizarding World, and that will likely drive Universal Orlando's profits even higher and cut even deeper into WDW.

                    The notion that Universal's success would help all the other parks in Orlando just isn't happening. Universal is way up and Disney World is slightly down. Folks ARE pealing a day or two off of their Disney trips to visit Universal and Universal hotels (and hotels near by) are PACKED compared to their WDW counterparts. That will continue and get worse as Universal ratchets things up . . . . unless Disney starts to take the Universal threat seriously and launches a massive counter attack.

                    Things in Orlando are about to get very interesting.

                        I would HATE IT if they got rid of Jurassic Park. JP is one of my favorite parts of IOA. I personally think that it needs a new attraction, but it should not be removed at all.

                          If you look at this map you will see the current Wizarding World of Harry Potter, the Lost Continent, Phase 2, the Expansion pad at the bottom of Jurassic Park that can either be used for the Jurassic Park Jeep ride (the original plan but not likely anymore) or an expansion to Toon Lagoon.

                            No offense, but this just isn't a sound idea. Several of the mythological creatures you mentioned can already be found in WW, and there's no sense in destroying JP so they can duplicate what's already there. In fact, there's already TWO attractions in WW that involve dragons in some fashion.

                              The vast majority of visiting vacationaers have significantly limited time and money, Few are going to opt to increase the amount of time and money they spend in order to attend both WDW and Universal Orlando.

                              I'll keep my fingers crosseed for you. But if the water ride is converted, I'll help see to it that a few nods are left to the former attraction.

                              JP was a totally exciting idea. Wish they wouldn't have abandoned it. I don't think a Harry Pottter safari would work. LOL!

                              The same animatronic characters are repeated in the same rides sometimes. As we're only talking about a few creatures that are already in an attraction, it's no big deal. Plus, it would be fun to see a few of the same creatures in different settings. Even if the repeats were omitted, the majority would be left and make for great new attractions.

                              Thanks for this awesome find. You are very resourseful, KE. I'll bet that Universal is already eyeing that expansion proprty and trying to decide what to do with it.
