New ride rumours for USF and IOA
Latest rumours from Universal Orlando:
Back to the Future, as we all know, will close March 30th. It seems that it won't be on the high Priority to replace just yet.
Why? Seems they are still trying to confuse everyone over the whole "Simpsons" thing.
Battlestar Galatica is now a definate no-no so all it leaves is the Simpsons Rumour or the new "Back to the Future." Time will tell.
BUT, it seems high on the Priority list is a new ride next door at Islands of Adventure. As mentioned many months ago it has been mentioned to bee by a park employee (Who works within the maintenance dept. in Jurassic Park) that track is already being laid for a new coaster where the Robotic Dinosaur interaction area used to be.
It could be that this ride, if confirmed, may be open later this year, or next spring at the latest.
This would be a much needed addition to IOA as no new ride (With the exception of the Seuss Trolley) nhas been instaled in many years.
Universal, of course, had Revenge of the Mummy installed just 3 years ago.
Watch this space for updates!
Well its about time IOA gets a big ride! The trolly thing, while fitting for the area, doesn't appear to do much!
Let 'em make a coaster, I say. That just means I'll get on the Hulk faster! Also, I'd love to see them renovate Back to the Future. I'm not too huge on the whole Fast and Furious thing.. so why not make a new movie for Back to the Future, recreate the technology to be 'up-to-date', and show you've put some effort into it?
I have a feeling that if the new ghostbusters movie gets made and it does well....its going to be all CGI, that you will see a BTTF movie being made. For the BTTF tribute we talked to the editor of Bttf.com and he says the main reason for no new movie is because of Michael J. Fox. They dont want to do one without him, and they cant do one with him because of his disease. So a CGI BTTF would be perfect.If ghostbusters does well. After all, Bob Zemekis...the director of bttf is into all that motion capture stuff with Polar Express, Monster House and now Beowulf.
CGI is a horrible idea. It will ruin the Ghostbusters franchise (thank Bill Murray for that). I won't even be able to associate it with the original two films. I haven't seen the TMNT movie, but seeing as how the turtle characters were already somewhat animated (even in the live-action films), I think it will be more accepted than the Ghostbusters would be. I would strongly oppose a BTTF CGI film.
Having just seen TMNT...the new CGI movie, the possibilities would be endless for a bttf CGI movie. It could invigorate the franchise. Same for GB3.
I highly doubt it.
Stranger things have happened.
I just want to know why are they always so secretive when announcing new rides? Its like they dont want any public rejections until the ride is being constructed and then its too late to change it. You'd think that they would welcome public opinion about new ride possibilities...after all, we are the ones that pay high prices just to get into the park in the first place.
renventing bttf would be a perfect idea it'll give it a better look.
