    Potter Cost a lot more...and the fact that most of the land rumored to become Potterland is still in use for other things

    universal's hand got forced by the leaks to the LA Times, Wall Street Journal and other trade mags. sadly the management team out there at UHS cannot keep a secret. which is the exact opposite of the team out here that is tight lipped and secretive. here we have a ride that is going to open up in 14 months and still no announcement.

    I believe we will get an annuncement when it will do the most harm to Disney soooo expect it around the time Fanatsyland opens.

    Like you said Transformers is to hurt Fantasyland

    While over here...Potterland needs some years to get people hyped for it and spread the word it's coming

    No, if Potter was still 5 years away they would have ignored the rumors and not made any announcement at all, why bother so early? They will be starting end of this year, beginning of next (Next Summer at the latest) There is no solid truth to the Gibson's contract being extended rumor....and even if there was, the extension is only rumored to be til 2015. Also, a change of venue is always possible.

    Believe me, universal is gearing up for Potter in a BIG way...its a big big deal, they are going to want to get it started ASAP.

    I hope Potter does not go all the way out to Hollywood. It should stay in IOA where it belongs and fits in with the park. A land of that quality and design aesthetic should not be cloned and definitely not be placed in a park with the haphazardness of USH. With that quality of a land, it would look out of place in the banal park known as USH. Make all those Californians come over to the East Coast and experience Potter in its full glory.

    At least USH can actually call itself a studio without laughing. I'm sure HP will do fine at USH. Someone sounds jealous the West coast cool gang doesn't have to travel cross country to see Harry Potter.

    Its already on it's way. I know some people don't want to see it come over to the West Coast, but I think from now on its going to be part of the park's structure....Like a Fantasyland...Each new park will have a WWoHP. There's already one going into Japan as well...and i think there's a rumor its going into Singapore soon too.

    Well at my final day at uni this summer when me and my dad and i asked if waterworld is leaving this year and she actauly said yes. so if anyone likes waterworld go see it before grinchmas probauly ends ( the date is just opinion but a possibilty.)

    oooooo, Who did you ask?? i've thought, for a while, that that area (along with the Gibson) is the perfect location for Potter! it really uses and expands an unused portion of the park! Everyone has been denyng that Waterworld will be replaced....its nice to hear some possible confirmation!

    Against the revenue Potter will generate, replacing Waterworld is a no-brainer. Waterworld generates no revenue at all.

    I'm also curious to know who you asked, because when I spoke to Greg and co. a few weeks ago they said the contract was renewed just a few months back, and that they were signed on for another 3 years. I know it's old and kind of cheesy but I really don't want to see this show go, I love it so much. It may not generate any revenue but it's still the #1 stunt show in America, and for good reason. But financially, yeah, removing it for Potter space makes way more sense...
