    Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance (DHS)

    I agree, but the drop is just 5% of the ride, and not all that intense (IMO). I like Spider-Man’s ride vehicle because it’s always engaged in intense motion, twisting and tilting in exciting and unexpected ways while zipping through show scenes at high speed. ROTR felt tame by comparison, but I...

    Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance (DHS)

    Slightly, but not as much as the fact that I was forced to wait until 2pm to actually enter the attraction (I was in Group 46). For further context, I arrived at the park at 5:15am... I guess I was hoping for a more visceral on-ride experience after nine hours of buildup — at least something...

    Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance (DHS)

    I rode it yesterday. The actual ride portion was pretty underwhelming; the trackless ride system, while the most logical choice for this attraction, is not very thrilling. However, I won’t contend with the idea that this is the most immersive theme park experience ever made... 8/10

    Universal's Epic Universe News & General Discussion

    I think making Fantastic Beasts the subject of an entire land is a mistake. That IP is already dwindling in relevance (which was arguably minuscule to begin with). I think it would be smarter to create a new land that carries the ‘Wizarding World of Harry Potter’ name ala Hogsmeade and Diagon...

    Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge (Disney's Hollywood Studios)

    He can call it whatever he wants. Not everyone has to agree with you.

    Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure Construction Discussion

    It's been so long since Orlando has gotten a highly themed coaster of this magnitude. So excited.

    Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure Construction Discussion

    I get the frustration. However, Universal just opened a brand new water park, multiple resorts and they're beginning work on an entirely new theme park that is slated to open in the not-too-distant future. Reading some of the posts around here might lead one to believe that adding a new...

    Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure Construction Discussion

    I am sensing some serious entitlement in this thread, lol.

    Nah. I think it's Hagrid's Care of Magical Creatures.

    Attraction With a Female Lead - When Will It Happen?

    This. OP, do you really think something like Charlie's Angels has a place in modern theme parks? Not attacking, I just sincerely want to know what you'd envision a company like Universal doing with an IP like that.

    Attraction With a Female Lead - When Will It Happen?

    This is honestly the last thing I'm thinking of when I go to a theme park. Personal opinions aside, Disney differs from Universal because the princesses are some of the most iconic assets in their portfolio of films... and as someone before me said, Kong has its own female lead, which seems to...

    Super Nintendo World (Hollywood)

    Here's how I think it'll go down: - USJ gets Mario Kart and the Yoshi Ride at opening (as we know), with the possibility of a Donkey Kong expansion featuring the mine cart coaster down the road. - USH gets a slimmed down version of the land that mostly resembles what we see at USJ, except no...

    The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Hogsmeade (Orlando): Part 2

    The Hogwarts Express runs on Windows 7. I guess you do learn something new every day.

    Jurassic Park Expansion/New Coaster

    That is... compact. I had hoped that the track would only make a single pass in front of the DC, but it looks like that is not the case. I'm not sure how to feel about all of this. I think it's strange that they're building what might be their most highly themed coaster ever just next door...

    Jurassic Park Expansion/New Coaster

    I'm pretty sure they renovate the ride once a year. The skins for the dinosaurs have to be swapped out due to wear and tear.

    Jurassic Park Expansion/New Coaster

    I love that in coasters. Hopefully the final product instills some of those same feelings.

    Jurassic Park Expansion/New Coaster

    Yeah, there's way too much going on there for my tastes. I wanted my render of the coaster to be as minimalist as possible. I don't think it would look good at all if the track made two passes in front of the Discovery Center as opposed to just one over the lagoon.

    Jurassic Park Expansion/New Coaster

    It's an idealized version. Not really meant to be an exact recreation, haha.

    Jurassic Park Expansion/New Coaster

    I didn't build the whole track since the exact track layout remains unknown. For now, it's just a glimpse at what could be; a visualization of what it could look like from around the IOA lagoon.
