Is Despicable Me Minion Mayhem really replacing Terminator for 2013?

No one is 100% sure but Im pretty sure that Terminator will probably close in January or December. That's my guess but we are still waiting for official announcements for Transformers at USO, Despicsble Me at USH, and the new Potter expansion. We have inside sources that say these are happening but the park has yet to announce them.

Terminator will most likely turn into Minion Mayhem. You should be happy though, MM is great.

I thought T2:3-D was going to close down this coming labor day weekend back when the the Despicable Me rumors started appearing. I hope Universal makes their announcements soon enough.

Although I will miss Terminator, it's time for the attraction to go. It's a good show, but it's very outdated and based on a (mostly) dead franchise. My question is whether Despicable Me (or whatever else may be the replacement attraction) will be a 2013 or 2014 attraction. Given how long it took to build in Florida, it seems unlikely the ride will be ready for summer 2013, but you never know.

As for other closures, I've heard the amphitheater contract expires next year, and I'm guessing Waterworld will probably close around that time. It a shame as that's the one show at USH I think should not be removed. No idea about the Special Effects show, but I think it's probably safe for the immediate future (if that, Waterworld, and Terminator all close around the same time, USH will have only ten attractions, which is even more unacceptable than their current line-up given the $80 ticket price).

I think that there is a decent chance that Waterworld gets moved onto the location of the special effects theater.

You realize that most of the Special Effects theater is suspended on the side of a hill. The area available for the lagoon and needed backstage support is less on one eighth of what WaterWorld currently has.
