Sorry, I probably missed it but what happened? Did somebody give clues about a LOTR expansion recently?
There is a project "ring" and it does have a project number. Unfortunately, I was handed two newer project numbers and I am not sure which one goes with what. The Ring number is either 720 or 228. I have no idea what the other number is all about.
^ That was my speculation. ^Oh, snap!
[...] it could be what HTF / Parkscope have been hinting at...
If you're referring to this:We got the codename "ring" but it doesn't have anything to do with LOTR
(and if I'm not mistaken) testtrack321 / Parkscope Joe ^ was saying that the project Parkscope (and hatetofly) caught wind of, and hyped on Twitter, was not Lord of the Rings, it was something else. Project Ring could be a different project, which could be LotR in development for a proposal... Just like it could be something elseThe rumored project is not Lord of the Rings.
While I agree the rides at TL are better than the only attraction left at LC (Poseidon); LC truly does make for a perfect transition from Seuss to HP. It’s going to have to be an IP that doesn’t make too jarring of a transition. The reason TL can work on the way to Kong is there is a ton of dead space to ease the transition. If LC got reworked, it would be back to back to back lands, so it’s going to have to be a particular IP.Mythology may not be as dated but the attractions aren’t as good as Toon Lagoon. It would be wiser for those to stick around longer. The Lost Continent as it is now will not be missed as anything other than a really well themed pathway to get to Hogsmeade from Seuss.
Perfect description for Dudleys. Potential and poorly maintained. It’s janky and, while fun, something that on par with something Six Flags would do if they tried their hardest and did their best. Also known as- universal trying their least and doing their worst.I don't think TL has ever got the love it deserved from Universal. Popeye's has always been great but Dudley's had the potential to be something truly great with a little attention.
Because Universal allows the IP holder to work more independently and doesn’t seize full control.
Thats an old, old article. This was all settled ages ago.New article on Theme Park Insider suggests that LOTR theme park rights won't be granted anytime soon. What do you folks make of his assessment?
One does not simply walk into Mordor... without going through court first
There is a newer article that was linked to in the Future of Toon Lagoon thread but the conversation has switched here.Thats an old, old article. This was all settled ages ago.
He said he got in trouble about saying that.It is not!
This is getting interesting...at least, in terms of theme park nerds speculating over this. We got many more reasons to discuss this now I feel.
