    it's better than any of the 3D at DLR. (Muppets, Captain eo are boring but bugs 3d is too short)
    I love Terminator and Arnold, I just feel it's time to create another Arnold centered attraction elsewhere in the Uni parks. Now that he's getting his movie career started again, I'm sure he will become a part of another awesome film franchise.

    Your point is absolutely correct. That said, I'd much rather see a version featuring actual humans.

    Although It's fine for a CGI film, a human adaptation would be more emotionally captivating.

    Have you seen Despicable Me? It's a computer animated film. Why would they try to make it live action?

    I just feel there is an overabundance of animation based uni park attractions - computer generated or otherwise. While I'm certain that i will be crazy about the upcoming computer animated Dispicable Me at Uni, I would nevertheless prefer a human version, or one that includes both computer animation and humans.

    Whatever the case may be, I hope we get a completely new storyline, and innovative new elements. As aforementioned, a ride (as opposed to a screan-based attraction) would rock my computer world!

    Re: With Dispicable Me Building Larger At USH, Will Ride Be More Elaborate Than USF?

    I will miss T2-3D (it was an innovative attraction for its time), yet I will frown upon the fact that a majority of Universal Studios Hollywood's rides / attractions are almost all "virtual" (until Hogworts arrives, hopefully with another roler coaster & new dining area) ....


    I hope those Stan Winston design Terminators are saved & put on display @ USH's Museum (don't lose those marvels of old school practical special effects). Yes, the show building is larger - but that could easily mean a larger Gift Shop post ride (because you know those plushy unicorns will sell, sell, sell) - or a more elaborate queue line ...


    Either way? The Minions are coming in 2013 -

    Re: With Dispicable Me Building Larger At USH, Will Ride Be More Elaborate Than USF?

    Seems like such a waste of space to creat a simulator ride with another play area. The area where Terminator and the coke thing is seems to be bigger than the building the mummy uses and also seems bigger than the building the transformer uses.

    seems like instead of taking out attractions which will diminish capacity they should just gut out the old western arena and build despicable me there. That whole area seems to be big enough for a good size show building with simulators and if more space is needed then just remove the smal studio way pathway and ugly carnival games that are or used to be themed to the flinstones.

    the upper lot really needs a complete overhaul that would fix the aweful layout and use the valuable land more efficiently

    I still say building yet another movie/simulator ride at USH is horribly short-sighted.

    I love Despicable Me and wasn't a huge fan of T2:3D so I'm fine with the replacement in theory, just not fine with just doing another film based attraction. I'd like Universal to think out of the box and bring a quality family dark ride to the park (finally). But it's not going to happen.

    Re: With Dispicable Me Building Larger At USH, Will Ride Be More Elaborate Than USF?

    Well, it's not like it's another simulator movie. It's basically keeping the count the same by exchanging T2 for Despicable Me. However, with rumors of Shrek 4D being removed for Hogwarts, the count may go down. So, right now there are 3, right? Shrek, T2, and the Simpsons. Well...I guess Transformers, but it's not quite the same, even if it does use screens.

    Also, the area where T2 is has structural limitations. Since it's the roof of the parking structure, they have to allow for weight constraints on that area. The Wild West arena would really be a good place for expansion, but for whatever reason, they decided not to use that.

    I don't think weight is an issue. I'm no structural engineer but I actually think a dark ride with less people going through at the same time than a full theater would be lighter.

    Plus, earthquake codes being what they are in CA probably means that structure could hold quite a bit.

    They're doing just that. Few areas won't be touched on the upper lot (safe to say the recently re-designed Baker Street strips will remain in place) in the next four years.
