Message to Universal: change Fear Factor for Madagascar

Universal Orlando: That spot next to the lagoon is ideal for the amazing exterior like the one at Singapore.

That is a random location. I have always thought Universal should place Madagascar where that out-dated Barney show is, it would work as a good replacement and be located near more of a family area.

In my big idea for Universal, I think Fear Factor should be changed back to the Wild Wild Wild West Stunt Show and then use the area behind MIB: Alien Attack for a western themed wooden roller coaster of some sort.

Not exactly the best argument. New York isn't typically what one might consider a place for a rollercoaster. ;)

Maybe Madagascar can go to Islands of Adventures if they change Toon Lagoon or Lost Continent for a Madagascar land.

Eric, don't forget The Cyclone at Coney Island, a coaster considered by many to be the best every built. It put the "clone" in Cyclone, because it spawned many attempts to copy it after it's premier. From what I've heard, though, none were as good as the original.

Wait, how did we go from talking about a Madagascar dark ride to a coaster? There is no way Madagascar would have a coaster made out of it.

I think Madagascar and How to Train Your Dragon should take over the kiddieland and evict Barney, Fivel, ET, and Curious George...

Maybe the one in Florda should take down fear factor for minute to win it live

FFL is such a waste of space; nearly anything would be a better use of the area I think.

Whilst FFL doesn't fit in the area either, I can't see Madagascar easily fiting in with the theming. Like others have said, I could see it perhaps working in the Kidzone area.

Then again, UO seem to think a rollercoaster fits in perfectly well in Production Central/New York. So who knows what could happen!

NBC is bringing the Fear Factor reality show back. What could that mean for Fear Factor at USF?
