Well its about time IOA gets a big ride! The trolly thing, while fitting for the area, doesn't appear to do much!

A rollercoaster, huh? Personally, I do not think IOA needs another roller coaster at the moment, but it sounds promising. I am assuming this will be indoors. I hope it won't be like Everest, but it would be exciting to see a new dino. Universal can now push the envelope and make the dino better than the Yeti! That would be awesome!

But it sounds like a good idea for IOA. I also want Back to the Future Back (renovated of course). I just don't think Universal should get iid of a classic.

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?

Last time I went there, the place wasn't looking all that hot and the ride was showing its age. I'm glad they're going to finally shut it down, but I hope they replace Back to the Future, if they don't reimagine the ride, with something worth putting in its place.

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 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.
As far as the new ride, who can tell. That is still one thing that Universal does wrong...they keep you guessing instead of telling you what its going to be and hiding the details.

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.

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.

IOA is in desperate need for a new ride though. A rollercoaster...i dont know about they even have the space for something of that magnitude? I dont think they need another water ride, Dudley's and Popeye's both hand out a good soaking. Not to mention they have jurassic park river ride too. I dont what they could put in, but i hope its good.

USF, obviously replacing bttf, most likely with the simpsons. I have seen the yellow painted test strips they are using inside the bttf building, which fortifies the simpsons rumor. They could replace twister, dummest attraction i've been to recently(other than jaws). They can replace jaws too, which breaks down ALL the time. I just hope kicking bttf to the curb doesnt turn around and bite them in the butt, cause i will be laughing my booty off.

renventing bttf would be a perfect idea it'll give it a better look.
