    Despicable me without 3D sucks (compared to the original).

    Agree, dump it.

    I visited over the summer and maybe it’s cuz I haven’t rode it in a while but I didn’t notice a difference. It seems to be popular and i honestly think it wouldn’t be too smart to get rid of.

    Universal has a lot of work to do in this park, honestly. Kidzone, Shrek, Fear Factor Live Are (basically a potential Potter expansion plot which we all know would get moved up on the schedule if ever greenlit), Rip Ride Rocket, are all things that will likely be addressed before this. 10 years I’d say if not more honestly, but at that point add Simpsons to the list as I’d assume some Disney conflict would ensue regarding rights? So another potential thing before it.

    For what’s its worth, on a gp basis (growing up in Miami where people go up all the time) most regular visitors of universal i know love RRR and I’m pretty sure it does well on surveys (myself included) Aside from any issues with the ride there may be in terms of operation I don’t see a reason to close it.
    I just want KidsZone, Fear Factor and Shrek replaced

    And in regards to Simpson’s I don’t think they need to resign their Simpsons deal until whats believed to be 2028 (which they probably wouldn’t) but until then I it’s not necessarily an area that really should worry them (even if the ride is awful). I assume it’s a pretty good food (and merch?) seller, but not something they’ll go out of their way to keep.

    Ya with RRR, I'm talking like 5-6 years in the future. I only see it closing due to operational issues and that cost running too high. If they could expand anywhere there ever, they could be something massive as well so I agree no reason to get rid of it but talking long term here. Mainly glad my mummy and Brendon Fraser are here to stay

    I'd start making peace that this isn't long for this world. Not immediate, but definitely in the realm of the near future.

    Out of everything they need to do? They pick this!

    I see no reason for them to change RotM when Shrek and KidZone still exist.

    That would be an extremely frustrating decision.

    Worries me honestly. Lacking a big coaster would hurt the park a ton imo.

    Better be good reasons. That kidzone is just so sad. Ugh. I can see them not touching Shrek but disappointing, especially given my name :(

    There very well may be. Possibly even great reasons! That doesn't mean it wouldn't be very difficult to watch my favorite ride in the park get kicked to the curb. Again.

    Unethical.
    How much attendance does the Barney show get? It feels like Universal has an agenda up their sleeves. It’s like they’re doing it on purpose. Closes rides, makes F&F bad. Proposal to close another ride but it’s everyone’s favorite. I’m sorry but that’s a recipe to lose customers and business, and the more I think of it, the more I think they deserve it. It’s time for a change of attitude; if Universal wants to compete with the timeless Disney, then they need to stick to their guns (in this case, the attractions people love that are already good quality), and make the attractions last longer, like Disney does. Everytime I hear Universal closes this and that, I think of temporary carnival attractions. But theme parks require the suspension of time, yes, time, because ultimately that’s what keeps the parks healthy in long-term. quae est disputationi.

    We should do a protest. It won’t do anything, but it’ll be a good excuse to meet some of the faces behind the names on the forum.

    I hope they have a strong replacement lined up.

    I agree with you. And it’ll be Mr. Toad style. Instagram pages, Snapchat accounts, everything

    Oh it will do plenty of things, especially how fast communication can flow through society these days. The park where Mummy is located even has a restaurant themed to it ;)

    Is it because it has practical effects? I thought they got the memo with F&F.

    Sorry, just so angry right now. :enrage:

    (And before someone says anything, yes, I do have bigger worries in life. This is just an outlet for distraction from those bigger worries.)
