In addition to The Simpsons Ride taking over the BTTF building, screamscape.com reports:
New Shows - Rumor - (8/6/07) We’ve heard a new rumor claiming that a few proposals for new shows are on the table for 2008. One is said to be a possible stunt show for the old castle theater, currently home of the Fear Factor show. There may also be some kind of upgrade or change to the Blues Brothers show. Meanwhile the really weird bit was word of a possible shake up for the Waterworld show being talked about. We’ve heard something about using new non-Universal characters in the show and having to get the rights to use certain characters. Of course if it remains a Waterworld style show, this almost sounds like a certain wacky version of the Waterworld show performed for limited runs in Japan where they throw in all kinds of odd characters from other films into the mix. I could see Universal trying to spice up the summer runs of Waterworld with this perhaps given the long run the show has already had. Anyone know more?
Wild West Stadium - Rumor - (3/21/07) For the past several years the old Wild West Stadium has sat empty, but sources tell us that something new is finally in the works to bring it back to life in the next couple of years. Anyone know more?

I've been to USH a few times, but the repeat value isn't that great on many of the attractions, so I've gotten bored with the theme park, but if this is the case, I might renew my annual pass next year.
