1. If Universal closes Spiderman, Disney automatically gets the rights to use Spiderman in Disneyworld.
2. Universal wants more people to go to the studios and not IOA.
First off, USF having upgrades over the USH Transformers is a bit laughable. What, are they going to use even higher definition than 4K? The SS44 footprint is big, but just about as large as the Backdraft/SES one. In order to rush this thing, it's going to be identical except maybe with some differences in regards to the facade. But overall the same weaving NEST corridors/queue will be utilized and it'll most likely be the same elevators.
What catches me off-guard is that in essence, Transformers and Spider-Man are actually pretty similar in that they reuse plenty of ideas. The opening scene of something hopping onto your car, navigating underground tunnels, being dragged over a cityscape (admittedly The Simpsons Ride copied this as well) and of course a perilous fall from a skyscraper. The latter will easily stick in the minds of tourists, but again this must be identical to get the attraction out on time. Nothing wrong with the same ride system being used, but with Transformers it seemed Universal wanted to create a very similar experience to Spider-Man, without Spider-Man of course. So it's a little weird that they've up and decided Florida should have that too.
I mean, if they did. Everybody has for some reason hopped aboard this train and refuses to think it can be anything else, rather suddenly. I won't be too sure until the official announcement. Or when we get evidence of USF building elevator pits.
We already have evidence that they're building elevator pits. We've had it for a while.
