    Um. Actually no it was not. Universal develop it during the creation of the first movie.

    Apparently, this does nothing to stop epic Mummy arguments. We get it, the ride was a disappointment. C'mon, I'm sorry for de-railing, so let's get on with chatting about the Simpsons Ride, huh?...

    Well they were already planning the construction of Jurassic Park The Ride, before the movie even began principal photography. To be specific, the plans for Jurassic Park The Ride, began in November, 1990. Three YEARS before the movie actually was released.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Revenge of the Mummy was being planned that time.

    Exactly. Whenever they think they have a profitable franchise on their hands, the gears start turning ahead of time.

    Not exactly, that is more of an assumption. The movie Jurassic Park, was... get this.... BASED ON A THEME PARK! It was the perfect opportunity to build a huge new attraction that Universal Studios Hollywood desperately needed. Guess what else!?! Jurassic Park wasn't even released when they were building the ride so how would Universal have known if it was going to be a huge franchise? They didn't! Building the attraction was a risk, and a smart move on Universal's behalf.

    On the other hand, if you want to see a Theme Park company grinding their gears to movie franchises. Look at Disney. Do you feel each park in CA needs their own Toy Story ride?


    "Mom, Lets go on Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters!!!!! *Rides Astro Blasters* Aww I am tired of this park, lets got DCA, hey look another Toy Story Ride!!!!"

    I almost can't wait till Epcot and Animal Kingdom get their own inevitable Toy Story rides. Why? Because I love buying those cute little toy story dolls. You know, the ones that have a different outfit each season! The more places to buy them in each park the better!!!!!!

    They assumed this from the very beginning. It's why they bought the rights to the novel before it was even published.

    Okay, so then what is so wrong about it? It was a very good business move. You seem to have a problem with that fact. I don't see Universal shoving Jurassic Park in our faces like Disney is with Pixar.

    This has got to be the most derailed topic I've ever seen. I wonder if that'll help it make the round-up ...

    Re: Simpson Ride Soft Opens at Universal Orlando!

    ^Good question. Pics at Screamscape from I think last Friday suggest that the facade's barely just finished the giant Krusty head. If that's the case, then how are they going to possibly make the (grand opening) date of May 17th?!...
