Published: May 20, 2009 at 9:45 AMWell it would be good for Universal to flex its innovative muscles finally. What do I mean? It seems that Disney is very good at coming up with theme park innnovations, and then running with them in various ways. This includes the jeep from Dinosaur or Indy, or Turle Talk/Monsters Inc/Stitch talking you you thing. Why not repeat Spiderman technology in a new way?
Published: May 20, 2009 at 9:46 AMI think it's a great addition to Universal Hollywood. With this and the transformers ride that I heard being built at USH this park should get a lot more business.

Published: May 20, 2009 at 10:45 AM4-D? I dont know, but to be honest it seems to me that Universal has done too much with so-called 4-D. Now they gonna hand out 3-D glasses? This idea seems to be too old and honestly I was always more impressed by a physical King Kong. The ability to take pictures and video help promote the real King Kong but now with this, well, chances are there's gonna be a slew of distorted King Kong projection shots all over the net. Just imagine with the technology today of lighter materials and good ingineering, we could get a more animated physical Kong. Sadly that idea seems to have been tossed to the side for an elaborate movie projected experience. I know, I'm sounding like one of those theme park enthusiest that complain until I see the product then do an about face. I'm not predicting it a bust, on the contrary I imagine the casual visitor will not mind and so be it, that's how the industry works, it's not set to cater to one person or group. But I do wish they would up the creative will and brig a living breating Kong... But hey, that's just my two cents.
Published: May 20, 2009 at 3:25 PMI agree with ED.
These 3-D and 4-D attractions are really overused. The designers think that they can jazz them up with moving seats, water elements, air bursts, and other "innovations", but the fact still remains that it's a movie. The 3-D technology tires quickly, unlike that of a real animatronic character.
I'm sure it will be impressive regardless of my criticisms, but I wish they would build another Kong animatronic.

Published: May 20, 2009 at 9:55 PM3D 4D cheap way to bring Kong Back If your going to have him fight a dino which by the way was cheesey in the movie.
Make a Robtic Dino and King Kong make this thing as real as you can without anyone getting hurt of course But not 3D
that makes the total of 3D shows at USH 3 Way to many is the well running dry with Ideas USH? just like it did at USF
