    I think @Chris brought it up, but I would highly doubt that they would be able to connect the new structure and TWDA, due to Frankenstein's structure.

    Do they need to fully connect them tho? Can't they just hollow out the inside of TWDA and then build the SLoP queue inside it and connect it to the new Globe building with a hallway or something?

    That would more or less be the more cost effective way of connecting the two buildings.

    First time posting but long time lurker on the forums. How did you guys see the ride concept with the scenes and everything? Sorry to ask but do you guys work for Universal? I've searched everywhere online and can't find any sort of blueprint or concept art on a potential SLOP dark ride.

    The long and short of it was a Universal Creative flub and it leaked out to a handful of people. Additionally some concept art has leaked on twitter.

    Oh I see. In that case, it makes sense why some know so many details about the ride.

    Thank you!

    I forgot to say, welcome to IU! I can' wait to hear what you have to say.

    And yeah, it's odd, but some of us (including myself) have had knowledge of the original concept for quite some time. Whether or not it comes to fruition as intended, we'll see what happens. But I am hoping that they'll stick to what was planned.

    No worries and thank you!

    I'm really excited about this project so I'll patiently wait and see how it turns out.

    Construction walls are being themed now, as demolition continues.

    Actually to be fair, the walls nearest Minion Mayhem were the only ones themed the other day when i was there, I just didn't feel it was worthy of noting...

    I was too busy thinking about what they planned on doing with the Phantom of the Opera poster hahaha

    Hello. This is also my first time posting. I was wondering if there was anywhere where the concept art for the SLoP ride could be found or if it has been taken down for legal reasons. Anyways, I'm glad to see that more physical based, kid-centric rides are coming to the park.

    The SLOP ride is only rumored. There has been no official announcement of the ride coming or concept art released by Universal.

    Welcome to the forums. ....Putting that stuff on the site is a definite no no at this point in time.

    You mentioning Quarterly Earnings, or something else? Because the first one was sccidental and didn't say exactly where and what, only that "UC was developing a Pet's attraction".

    yea that... but it counts. Even though "Sing" would be more entertaining. And could've recycled the Globe facade (unless they went with the revamped theatre look from the end)...

    I still wish Universal would use Laika for a new ride (ParaNorman!!!!, Kubo, etc)

    At this point, with Laika out of Focus Picture's hands, and with how they aren't as popular as an Illumination or DWA, we will not see them back for an attraction.

    That said, I love Laika and would love every second of a Kubo slow moving water dark ride ala' Sinbad, as it's just asking for that.

    I get the feeling, whatever Pets is will cause the entirety of Baker Street to change, either that, or something else happens.
