    Evolution Plan + Expansion

    After looking at the Vision Plan, it says that there will be 146,000 new net sq. ft. of attractions. After looking on the map, I don't see anything that shows the park expanding at all. Something tells me that the "new" 146,000 sq. ft. of new attractions is coming from replacing the older attractions with newer ones instead of adding new attractions. Does anybody else know about the park expansion or "expansion"? I would love to see USH expand and have more stuff to do.

    A lot of that space comes from removing the Gibson Amphitheater and replacing it with a smaller venue closer to the AMC theaters.

    Really? Does this mean more theme park attractions or a big park attraction will take it place where the Gibson was? Or does make room for more of those stupid hotels and shops that have been rumored?

    I don't think this plan will ever happen. They want to replace most the back lot with apartments, After the large investment they had just put into rebuilding the back lot, I can't imagine they'd be willing to tear it down again. Also I don't see why Universal would even consider tearing the Gibson Amphitheater down. It's a landmark in some ways.

    Yeah I don't think Uni would be stupid enough to wipe out half of their signature backlot with a bunch of condos. After the housing market collapse AND the money put into rebuilding the backlot after the fire, it just doesn't seem likely at all. It would be nice if they could move the Gibson close to the theaters or at the Rocky and Bullwinkle parking and put a major new ride there.

    I can see where they'd think about replacing the amphitheater, There is a lot right next to/behind the AMC that is about the same size as the Gibson that they might relocate to. I am all of new attractions at UNI-HOLLYWOOD.

    I hope they do so. Even after Transformers opens our park still needs help!

    The Coke area near terminator could be used too for a smaller attraction or the curious george area (I think it could fit a spondgebob water ride pretty easy)

    So this is the new name for this plan that is what? About 20 years old now. They were talking about this when I worked there.

    Re: Evolution Plan + Expansion

    TacAlert - there have been a few different plans since you were there- the most recent is the 'Evolution' plan - it's basically a more realistic view than the previous 'Vision' plan - the latest one doesn't have anywhere near the radical shift of the backlot real estate as the Vision plan might have.

    The Evolution plan doesn't "wipe out" half of the backlot either- it does call for rearranging the studio area.

    They're not gonna put anything were Coke Soak is - The parking lot roof gets enough wear and tear from T-2's seat drop every half hour as it is.

    They won't put a ride there. That area is too close to the back lot and sound travels a little to well.

    Not to mention the fact of too much stress on top of the parking structure.

    This will probably never happen...let's not forget General Electric is doing paperwork to sell/give/trade/etc a large stake in Universal Studios from NBC to Comcast(GE owns NBC. NBC owns Universal).

    I say get rid of that ridiculous size flippin Golf Course. Seriously, it's TOO big. Cutting it in half could make the park HUGE.
