Just be grateful you don't have twister. I'd kill for Backdraft.

I've seen both Twister and Backdraft and Twister is better. I'm just asking what you think Universal should put in its place. For Instance, maybe a Fast and The Furious ride would be cool.

Maybe the showbuilding could become the Men in Black or Spidey ride (note: I know it's a small stage space). They could expand the existing building to add on more room for those two rides which I desperately want to go on (Men in black could compete with the new Toy Story Mania?)

I'd prefer to see a new attraction rather than a clone, but if they HAD to clone something, Men in Black would be a good addition, especially if they performed a decent level upgrade while they were at it.

Maybe if the Incredible Hulk movie does well, there could be some sort of non-clone ride for it. Maybe a variation of the Spidey ride? Or just do the Spider-Man Ride.

As much as I love the show Heroes, I can only see them not doing the show justice by having a half-arsed ride.

USH always seems to have the problem of space... well, So Cal in general.
