    Re: Wall Street Journal: Wizarding World Coming to Universal Hollywood

    Either one side or the other side of the upper lot is going to be COMPLETLY gone

    I rather them put the castle where T2 is (and use the parking lot below it as room for the E ticket ride)

    Then use the the rest of the area as shops and what not.......then maybe add a coaster a one point too.....then they could keep use the other side of the park for other new rides...like th rumored Woody Wood Pecker ride and Despicable Me and I'll also put my money on a How to Train my Dragon ride/show too

    What they should do is devote Gibson and WaterWorld to Potter (Which I think they're going to do) and have the coaster built where WW is; that way, the noise from the ride can be obstucted somewhat by the CityWalk walls and it will be away from the studio enough o where it wouldn't ruin the filming.

    Save Shrek for the Woody Woodpecker 4D show.

    Use the hill along the upper lot to put a new attraction there.

    That will never happen. T2 is on it's way out since the parking structure it's on top of can barley hold the theater itself. There is no way it could support any E-ticket ride.

    Re: Wall Street Journal: Wizarding World Coming to Universal Hollywood

    Very excited to hear this news! I agree that one side or the other of the upper lot is going to get a makeover.......my guess is the Gibson side.......good-bye Water World, Gibson, Shrek and Curious George. I think that the only ride that makes its way from Florida is the Forbidden Journey. I also see one other ride that will be a Hollywood exclusive (coaster?) and possibly a show of some type. It will be interesting how the whole thing lays out, but one thing is for certain.......Hogwarts on the side of that hill will be very dramatic!

    Oh yeah......glad to hear that Universal got the rights to this instead of Disney. Where in the heck would they have put something like this at Disneyland???

    I would love the castle to be where T2 is. The view from the freeway would be amazing!

    T2 needs to be replaced before they do all this.
    But I'd love to not have to travel to Florida to experience Potter.

    Re: Wall Street Journal: Wizarding World Coming to Universal Hollywood

    I agree that using Gibson/Waterworld is the most likely scenario with the entrance to the land being where Shrek currently is. I can't see that staying if I'm being honest. If they are going to transform that entire area of the park, no point in keeping Shrek.

    From the picture below:
    - Green = Current Shrek - Future = Entrance to Hogsmeade, Hogsmeade shops, etc.
    - Red = Current Gibson - Future = Hogwarts, Forbidden Journey, more shops? Another attraction?
    - Blue = Current Waterworld - Future = HP Themed Coaster?

    Everyone referring to Universal rides as E ticket rides in one of the most ridiculous things I have ever heard on this board.

    ^ Why is that ridiculous? It is a widely accepted term that is used for a quality attraction.

    Disneyland hasn't used "tickets" in 30 years, so it's no different than calling Indy an E-Ticket. It never used them either.

    Re: Wall Street Journal: Wizarding World Coming to Universal Hollywood

    I've always heard that noise has been an issue with USH and that's why there haven't been any outdoor rollercoasters built. So I'm wondering if Dueling Dragons or Flight of the Hippogriff would be cloned over.

    I think that it is 50/50 that we see a coaster. I think that there will be family oriented ride.......possibly using Ron's car as the vehicle.......think Peter Pans Flight on roids. Another space saving option is an indoor coaster themed to the bank.

    Same here. It's not just a lack of room but devoting a land that big to one franchise when the other lands aren't themed in a similar fashion kinda throws the theming off balance. I'm just saying it would be rather awkward to have this giant WWoHP in the middle of all of these lots unless the entire park got a massive makeover.

    I'd rather see the current one in Florida get expanded but of course that is just me. I'm sure a Forbidden Journey attraction can be fit into USH with a store attached but to go beyond that would just get too complicated if a lack of land is the problem.

    Hippogriff would be realistic. Nothing like Dragon Challenge. That would take up the entire area you guys are drawing up for a USH Wizarding World. I'm also not sure if you're allotting enough space for Forbidden Journey either.

    I also think it would be in Universal's best interest to keep Wizarding World exclusive to Orlando, but whatever.
