^That would be by far the best B&M Coaster ever!

I would imagine just based on that video we'll see some caves or something that you'll fly through. I would assume the queue will have some sort of themeing as well (all the video shows is a quick shot of the archway that says flying dinosaur).

Judging by Uni's history with coasters and queues (Dragons, Mummy, Hulk, etc), um, yeah, there's going to be a buttload of themeing for this ride.

I mean, just forget Rip Ride Rockit... :lmao:

So, apparently the partnership that will result in Nintendo-themed attractions in the Universal theme parks will extend to Universal Studios Japan as well, in case anyone was still questioning that.

^ I'd always kind of thought that being Japan, home of Nintendo, and with Potter in Osaka still being insanely popular, that any land for expansion would eventually go to Diagon Alley and Hogwarts Express and Universal would set up a 2nd park somewhere with Nintendo as the headliner to draw crowds, instead of it being somewhere in the already busy current park so I'm quite surprised by this.

Can't say I'm surprised about the Nintendo thing at all.

You spared no expense with your Jurassic Park reference. Clever girl. Thanks for all the pictures. It seems like only yesterday that vertical construction started.
