Is All the New Movie Themed Attractions Being Play Out?
Well, it’s been a while since I've posted, but was thinking about this. With the new Skull Island coming to theaters in 2016 and the possibility that Islands of Adventure building a new Skull Island attraction. Although, not yet confirmed. One has to begin to wonder is the new movie based theme for attractions being played out? For me personally most times I like it, although sometimes I wish they can be a little more creative. Then again it is Universal Studios, and that it is a major movie production company, so it kind of does fit the bill.
No one can deny the fact that it has been successful and most people seem to enjoy it. For instance with the great new! And exciting Harry Potter attraction! Which was so successful we all bare witnessed it’s huge expansion, and probably more to come in the near future. Also, the new coming Star Wars attraction and the rumored possible Fast & Furious franchise making its way to universal someday... again this is just a rumor.
So is it being played out? Or is this just the beginning?
I suspect it is only the beginning. I agree, I like it on the one hand, but sometimes wish they would be more creative, but I can understand why they do it. I wonder if ecpot, when it finally gets some major attention, will go down the same movie theme route - I kind of hope not, though any new major development would be great.
Um, Alec, what exactly is your question in the opening post to this thread?
Aw, I thought they'll be making a The Avengers ride at Disney California Adventure. :'(
I would say no.
Tim, my question is the movie themed rides for instance, harry potter, ratatouile, "rumored" Skull Island, Fast& Furious. Are they being played out like are they getting old to you? or is this something that you like?
and Oscar e-mail me I have to talk to you about something.
Jay R. I happen to agree with you 100% :)
Alec, I don't think that the movie franchises are being overplayed. With the omnipresent media options we have available these days, we've become an ADD society, and ride developers have no choice but to go for the biggest bang for the buck as quickly as possible and hope that the ride reaches "classic" status before it becomes generationally obsolete.
Well one line from Robert Niles' Tony Baxter interview was his response to a question very similar to the one you have brought up.
