    That would lend to my confusion.

    I feel like it's just such a small building. Unless they get creative with multiple floors like Transformers did, I'm not sure how they would get anything else squeezed in there.

    They could gut it and turn it into a show of some sort, but what with T2/Bourne being so close, not sure that's the best option.

    You can tell its just the one too because the wait times have always been historically high for it. I always enjoy this as my first ride in USF though, but I understand enjoying the minions is a bit in the minority. Not the minions movie, but more the despicable me franchise.

    Probably doesn't help that it's one of the few rides where you're guaranteed to wait outside for most of that queue time. If it can be hit first thing in the morning, then it's definitely good, but waiting an hour in the heat (even if shaded)? Pass.

    Yep, this is the biggest reason to rope drop USF. Everything else has slow times, but once lines get long here, it is over. Being at the front of the park does this ride no favors.

    The conversion has now been implemented in Orlando.

    Didn't follow this in Hollywood. But, why?

    “At USH” is that a typo?

    Just a baffling decision. There was a fire in the building and they poured water on the grill outside.

    They say that like it's an upgrade.

    I think they've confused the 'sick of 3D' comments.

    Im truly so confused, is this a cost cutting measure? Isn't part of the pre show with Gru about wearing your minions goggles? I usually ride this one everytime I there so I'm pretty sure I'm correct haha. Does this mean new pre show?

    Maybe they know the only way to get the Minion dark ride we deserve is to try and diminish the popularity of this attraction...

    There’s literally no reason to believe this.

    So you say, but this was clearly done as a cost cutting measure. Spiderman has a BOATLOAD of glasses that need to be cleaned. Spider webbing is on the wall...

    3D is essential for Spider-Man to work as you’re moving and not viewing from a fixed location.
