I think that the lands should be
A marvel super hero island and the rides would be a spiderman ride the incredible Hulk coaster an Iron man ride and like a fear fall but in a Captain America theme.
The 2 land would be horror land and have the revenge of the mummy,a wolfman coaster,a terminator ride and the horror make up show .
The 3 land would be Jurassic park just like the one on Ioa.
The 4 land would be WWOHP just like the one on Ioa
The 5 land would be a animation studios and the rides would be the simpsons ride,a sponge bop ride,rip saw falls just like the one at Ioa and a popeye ride like the one at Ioa and for last the cat in the hat.
The other land is extreme land the rides would be a transformers ride,Hollywood rip ride rockit super Jaws coaster an a men in black extreme ride
The last land would be Dream works studios and the rides would be a Despicable me ride,Shrek 4D,Madagascar ride and Monsters vs aliens ride.
I think that should be the park.

Marvel is banned from other Universal parks?

WWOHP is exclusive to IOA?

Really?

Universal can add Harry Potter to its other theme parks anytime it would like to submit plans for JK Rowling's approval and pay the resulting additional licensing royalties for those new lands.

I think if the check was big enough they could have Harry Potter battling the Incredible Hulk ... or one of the Kardashians.

I thought Universal had the rights to do whatever they pleased with WWOHP (with guidance from JK).

Personally I don't like the idea of having Forbidden Journey as a standalone attraction at the park. It would easily work, but I would like to see something new.

I think the deal was Universal could do whatever they please (with guidance from J. Rao).

As for the Marvel thing, I wonder if Disney would object to Universal using their characters on the Korean pennisula. Disney has a theme park presence in Asia (Hong Kong) with plans for a dramatic expansion (China). Why not allow their content to appear in Korea on someone else's dime?

Somewhere in this new park they should have some of the old Universal attractions. Back to the Future, Kongfrontation, and E.T.(the Hollywood version). Back to the Future alone would be just marvelous.

BACK TO THE FUTURE! I HOPE!

I'll be surprised if it actually gets built. Besides putting walls around the location, I don't think they've stuck a spade in the ground yet.

^Not to go off topic, but I know the person who designed Kongfrontation, he works as the head engineer of my small park Lagoon in Farmington, Utah today!

Again, Despicable Me wasn't made by Dreamworks. Just sayin'.

Cool Nick! Have you got him to design something similar? It was the smell of bananas mixed with the swaying cable car mixed with impending doom that got me... Plus the silouetted giant gorilla shapes on the side of buildings... classic! Tell him he has a fan!
