I'm willing to bet that some of the features from Diagon Alley in FL will find a home in Springfield so CA fans won't feel left out. The ice cream shop is probably a given and maybe some unique merchandising stores.
We just got a spinner here in Hollywood with the Super Swirly in Super Silly Fun Land. I doubt Universal will add another.
The Springfield in Hollywood is going on the site where Doc Brown's Fried Chicken and the Cantina used to be.
And I'll talk to my editor about paying me more for today. ...Oh, wait. :^(
With Hogwarts being nearby, does anybody know if there are going to be expanding the walkway down to the tram to fit all this?
With that said, I couldn't be happier to see that Comcast still obviously cares a great deal about USH and isn't letting it fall into disrepair or become a third-tier park without the same attention to detail and new attractions as Orlando.
It's a matter of working with what you have, and USH will never have as much as UOR, but they're maximizing what's available. I'd be really disappointed if Universal Studios Hollywood was neglected, and I'm glad to see that's not the case.
Although the behind-the-scenes Tram Tour is the anchor attraction of this park, behind-the-scenes style attractions are becoming obsolete. With so much information on how movies are made now and the ability to easily make your own movies at home with a basic level computer and smartphone, attractions like the special effects stage get replaced with a much more entertaining attraction like Transformers.
USH is finally catching up with the modern films with Transformers, Despicable Me, & Harry Potter.
I wish the Fast & Furious addition to the tram tour wasn't another 3D screened attraction, but a practical stunt driving on the backlot. But alas, since USH backlot is practical shooting lot, this isn't entirely possible.
However, I am interested to see what the nighttime Tram Tour will entail when it's not part of HHN.
