    Same here. I thought it was pretty clever. Lots of production and they used almost the entire backlot!

    I think the aquarium use of screens will be very realistic and fun! :)

    I think the conceit of that ad is a lot of fun.

    Can I start?

    I think replacing the first lagoon scene - an expansive "natural" environment - with a narrow, enclosed tunnel with (presumably) nothing physical to look at certainly diminishes my interest in seeing this revamp come to Orlando.

    The grand "Welcome to Jurassic Park/World" moment with the gates swinging open is likely gone, too, or else it's taking place in/leading to a dark corridor, which probably won't have the same impact.

    I guess we'll have to see. The ride has already lost a good handful of AAs in favor of CGI stuff, though.

    The idea - in concept - could be fun, but:

    1. The CGI looks pretty cartoonish (as the Mosasaur does in the movies, frankly).
    2. It's coming at the expense of "real," physically-in-the-same-space-with-you stuff.

    Im not taking the shot from the ad as the finished product. If anything they shot in front of a green screen and added that moment in. I am confident it will look great in person.

    I wonder if we'll see the gate at the end of the Mosasaur scene leading into the open-air with the theme playing. An updated version of it, just after the Mosasaur(?) I don't know why there'd be a cold-open on the ride, but... just a thought.

    As long as screens are used "correctly", I don't think anyone will have a problem. It's when screens are the sole medium where fans are starting to get temperamental over.

    Fair points. I think the screen usage as an Aquarium is a fun use, but I understand the loss of openness can be a downer to some. Like always, we're gonna have to "wait 'n see" for the rest.

    If that entire new building is mosasaur...that’s be disappointing

    This. While I hope we do see the return of a stegosaurus or two in there, I think the aquarium will be a cool scene. It’s obvious that this Attraction won’t be a simple “update” but changing up a lot of scenes. Some people will dig it, done won’t.

    From the ad, and I do realize it’s just an ad, it kind of looks like some movement or interaction of sorts could be involved in the mosasaur scene. Love to see the flipper patent utilized to knock our boat timed with the mosasaur knocking on the glass.

    The first few bumps could use the same mechanism that the hadrosaur off course effect uses, timed with the banging on the glass. But then the last bump, as seen in the commercial, actually pushes you along. Could scare the crap out of people, and add something more to bring a screen effect into real life.

    Even though he died, just once it would be funny to have a scene where, after stuff goes wrong, you would have Samuel L Jackson saying, "Hold onto your butts". Maybe right before the pre-drop scene. I would laugh myself silly at least the first time.

    Yeah, structurally and pacing-wise, it would be kind of weird to have that "Welcome" moment anywhere other than the first scene, but I guess anything's possible.

    I think a standalone aquarium-style show/viewing area could be a nifty B-ticket type experience. Hollywood probably doesn't have space for that anywhere but on the ride, but in IOA, I'd be totally cool with such a thing being added independent of River Adventure.

    Totally! I'm exactly the same. I don't want a JW ride like Transformers or Spiderman. The whole premise of the movies is that dinosaurs are real and are a real threat, so why would we only see a screen that isn't "living and breathing". But in the same way CG was used in the first movie to complement the animatronics, the ride should be the same.

    That’s the best ride advert I’ve seen in a long time. That iconic roar gave me goosebumps.

    There really wasnt any realistic way they could make the Mosasaur without screens. The underwater tunnel is in line with concept art for the JW movie. If the reverse section could be added to this scene like Alicia said, I think it would make it much more interesting

    It would be interesting if they added a few more prehistoric marine reptiles into the mix.

    Not sure how much they can vary the tunnel experience, though.

    This was the storyboard/concept art I shared many many pages ago. Wonder if this inspired the ride sequence

    Going with this angle, perhaps the ride (in the story) is strictly supposed to be taking you through the aquarium but the bump knocks you off of that path, similar to how Hadrosaur cove was blocked and that’s when things start to go awry.

    Imagine that last bump is so hard, the mosasaur appears to crack the glass, and a spritz of water sprays the boat while your boat is physically bumped. People will get scared out of their mind. (You know how Universal loves to spray you!)
