^People care, but until it's more official there isn't much to talk about.  I mean, if they put the Denmark Tornado cars on VelociCoaster then we'll talk more, I promise. 

Lol I agree Alyssa, my question is what happened to the message boards? Seems dead?

Yeah, that's one of the things I love most about this forum.  We're not full of the people who want to talk about rumors and possibilities like most other sites have.  I mean, yeah, I'll donate to the rumor mill but I'm fairly certain my contributions (like an octuple tire launch for TTD) are so wildly dumb that nobody would take them seriously.  We live in the age of social media, though, where anyone can believe anything, no matter how bugnuts wackadooo it may be, so silly me, I guess.  Also, it's the off season, not much to discuss.

Basically if you want nonstop discussion about nothing of merit then go to Reddit or other forums full of that stuff.

Post more. Be part of the solution. :)

Personally I'm interested to see what happens with this. I'd love for this park to add more unique things that they don't have in Orlando. That's 100% not necessary for the park to be successful, I just selfishly want a reason to go there. lol

I feel no one is talking about anything is because there really isn't much to talk about.  It's too many "vloggers" who think they know everything there is to know about the park till it's best to have a wait and see for real info and concrete evidence to rear it's head.  See what happen to that knotts giga. . .

No loss with these two (craptacular) shows closing, and hopefully this means they'll finally kill the really really terrible Jabbawockeez HHN show.  That being said, if they relocate to the Waterworld arena and give us a show with explosions and water breakdancing I'm all for it.

Truthfully, I do think it is a loss. The shows obviously didn’t appeal to us as theme park fans, but they filled up during peak times and added more “movie” things to the park. 
 

The park is definitely going to feel having the new rumored ride, studio tour, lower lot, and Springfield/Simpsons all on one narrow path and no longer having two shows to suck some people off the midways for a bit.

Also, personal note... from talking to folks I know, SO many stunt performers in LA have come and gone through SES and been able to pay their bills with it between other gigs.  So a bunch of good dudes are going to be losing another job opportunity in a field that's already very tough.

 

Universal Hollywood is weirdly very light on entertainment, considering it's whole concept is showbiz.

Agreed. But I'd bet my hat that the Bourn Stuntacular is on it's way to Hollywood.

I’m not sure where they would put it unless WaterWorld is finally done.

My assumption is that the Mel’s/Parisian themed area is eventually swallowed up by something illuminations to complete the transformation of the back of park.

On the lower lot, I assume any future expansion space would go towards Nintendo (the current soundstage 29 used for events butts up right next to it…)

Mummy would be the wildcard, but going from a roller coaster to Bourne seems like a big downgrade. Simpsons if you believe the license will end would make another possibility.

I suppose they could completely rework the front entrance to use the space that was formerly saddle ranch and the VIP/handicapped parking lot to stretch the park out too if they wanted to.

 I would be THRILLED if that happened.  It's incredible.  My favorite non-coaster attraction at the whole UOR.

I wasn’t impressed. Neat technology but really not a good show. T2 was much better.

I went last weekend and was really pleasantly surprised! The area is larger, better themed, and more immersive than I expected. It does admittedly feel like something is "missing" with the lack of the Yoshi omnimover ride, but everything it does have (the ride, mini games, animatronics, restaurant) is a lot of fun. I was worried the ride system chosen for the Mario Kart ride would make it seem slow and boring, but I didn't feel that way at all while riding.

Overall, a great addition to Universal Studios Hollywood, and if the rumors are true with a Donkey Kong coaster expansion, that will really make it feel complete.
