    USH Spinning Tunnel Remodel

    I don't think USH needs another Mummy reference in the park. So what about redoing the Mummy spinning tunnel for either Star Trek (tractor beam or borg assimulation), Stargate, or a worm hole. For a Star Trek borg assimulation, I thought it'd be neat to see it similar to Dante's Peak, but basically green everywhere. Then the water spray would be your final stage of assimulation. It'd be cool to have a borg appear in the TV monitor. Like showing the tour guide as a borg for example

    Re: USH Spinning Tunnel Remodel

    While on the Tram Tour and entering the Tunnel, I was thinking along the same lines.

    It is getting dated.

    It was Dante's Inferno for too long, and the snow "blizzard" even longer.

    It's due for a change...

    well, if they close back to the future, they can keep some theme from the movie by making the tunnel seem like a time vortex similar to the wormhole you mentioned, only it would be the space time continum. lol

    FantasyWatersDude, I was thinking about that too. But with BTTF, their time travel is instantanous(sp).

    Star Trek is a Paramount Property and not likely to show up at a Universal park.

    As for what they can do with the tunnel ... who knows.

    ????

    It already has...

    USH did have a Star Trek show during the 80's, which included the illusion of someone appearing/disappearing in a tube (whatever it was called) like on the TV show.

    It was housed in the current Shrek 4 building/theatre.

    Saw it numerous times.

    Just because something isn't Universal, doesn't mean that it won't appear in the Park...

    Re: USH Spinning Tunnel Remodel

    Yeah, I remember that. There was a tank looking thing with a few guys standing around it and then you went into a tunnel/spaceship? and then out again. It was near the forever-burning house.
