I can't see Universal replacing it. It's still front stage for most of the promos & advertisments for Universal Studios. That tells me Universal marketing believes it is still popular.

Shrek is kinda over. Like Spongebob. People know who they are, and some still like them, but Universal needs to make room for newer children franchises that aren't dying. However, I don't want another 3D film. However, what else, other than a show can fit there.

If they are replacing Terminator with Dispicable Me next year, I'd say that they should remove Shrek 4-D and use that space as part of the Harry Potter expansion. I would much rather see that show close than Waterworld.

Skipper, Spongebob is still popular considering they just opened a whole store.

Why is there so often a movement to get rid of Universal attractions once they're 7-12 yrs. old? Most of Disney attractions are much much older and it's relative blasphemy to suggest that they be replaced, with the exception of a few of the bottom dweller attractions.

Shrek is not going anywhere. The most recent film ("Shrek Forever After") came out in 2010. The attraction has at least another 5 years before it would be considered for replacement.

Terminator and Twister are far more in need of replacements.

I wouldn't be surprised if it was eventually replaced with a Madagascar attraction. I think Shrek has just about run its course. But i do agree Twister and Terminator needs to go first.

I think Madagascar could eventually replace it as well. I assume IF it does get replaced it will be with another franchise / licensed character property.

I do think its time for a replacemeant. Yeah keep twister and put something new that hasn't been in a universal park yet.

Why replace it ? Just cuz it has been nine years doesn't mean it needs to be removed. Besides, isn't terminator being replaced with something else?

Note, this is for USH, not USF. Terminator at USH will be replaced by Minion Mayhem next year.
