PixarFest coverage from Disneyland last week, allow me to catch up on other theme park news with a quick round-up of what Disney, Universal, and Cedar Fair have been filing for with local and federal agencies.After all our
Disneyland has filed a permit application with the City of Anaheim to "renovate 5000 sq. ft. existing interior space to a conditioned queue area." This is for Space Mountain and will include a reconfiguration of the queue area on the roof of the Tomorrowland Theater. That "existing interior space" appears to be the currently unused upstairs portion of the old Starcade. So it appears that Space Mountain standby queue visitors might soon be getting more interior queue space in which to await their ride, outside of the Southern California sun.
This provides us another excuse to remind readers that Disneyland's Space Mountain now has a single ride line for people who don't want to wait in that outdoor queue. It's not marked at the entrance, though, which is why we keep reminding people about it. Just head for the exit, which is inside to the right of the Tomorrowland Theater, across from the restrooms. You should see a small sign there, directing you to the single rider queue.
Universal has filed a trademark application for "Jurassic Your World." It's a catch-all application, so it could be for anything that Universal Studios does, not just a theme park attraction. Universal Studios Hollywood is throwing an after-hours, hard-ticket party for Jurassic Park's 25th anniversary and there's a new Jurassic World flick on the way, so let's just use this as an excuse to speculate on Universal's next move after those with this franchise.
The amusement park chain has filed a trademark application for "Copperhead Strike." This one also could be for a wide variety of uses, but man that sounds like a great roller coaster name, doesn't it? Speculate away!Tweet
