Word on the street is Terminator 2:3-D and maybe the Coke Soak.

Shrek or Terminator, most likely Terminator. Maybe T2 could close for the Bourne franchise at USF? ;)

It could go hand in hand with the new Bourne movie coming out in August!

Terminator; defiantly. I say it's gone in September.

Yes I believe T2:3-D may be in its last couple of months. The thing about USH is it can't have two major attractions closed at the same time. Rumor has it as well that Water World will be making way for Harry Potter. So.....

Terminator closes in September(after Labor Day) and Despicable Me opens next Spring(April/May)

Immediately after Despicable Me opens Water World shuts down to make way for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

After maintaining quite an eye on this thread, the whole Terminator closing leaves me skeptical. After comparing T2 @ USH and Despicable Me @ USF via Google Earth(for the record, I tried embedding images but just couldn't figure out how), it's clear that Terminator has a building twice the size of DM. So my idea is to get rid of the House of Horrors and use that or feature two screens in Terminator in a way similar to that of the Simpsons.

No I didn't read the information anywhere. It's just an assumption from my part. If they want Despicable Me to open next year than they better start working on it. September seems like a logical choice to close T2:3-D because it is after the busy summer season and Labor Day was when Back to the Future closed back in 07.
