    Not to mention when you go into different play area areas, the respective music for that zone will be playing... like a variation of the old school underground theme when you go into an underground zone, etc.

    Yes, nice. I remember Teebin telling us about this testing site for DK about two or three years ago.

    So, thats pretty much confirmed testing for DK right? Wonder if we should expect that track layout as well.

    Nintendo is next to Transformers in Hollywood right? I’d post a picture I took but this site is weird and won’t let me upload from my phone.

    SUPER NINTENDO WORLD WILL USE WRISTBANDS (GIVEN TO ALL GUESTS) TO INTERACT WITH THE LAND: This is from the CEO of Universal Parks, Tom Williams so not rumors.

    When asked when Nintendo will be coming to US parks this was the answer:
    I only know we are bringing it. But I don't want to defer attendance.

    This sounds fascinating, but also keep in mind this is about USJ. All of these elements may not necessarily make it to the states, at least in the current form. Very interested to see how this works.

    Lol at least he's answering honestly now.

    Not really. I highly doubt someone like him “only knows we’re bringing it.”

    I'd say the delays with SWGE and the problems with Hagrid will only make Universal more cautious about announcing opening dates (if that's possible)

    The fact is that SNW in California is only about a year behind construction of SNW in Japan which gives us an opening date in 2021.

    Yes. This is basically what we always talk about when people question why Universal doesn't release opening dates and more info until something is just about open. From the horses mouth here. ....and Universal has been gun shy since the attendance nosedived before the Hogsmeade opening. And now GESWL reinforced that view. This is Universal's M.O. and it's going to remain their M.O.....and I don't blame them.

    Of course, you know, we've been discussing interactive play elements, and even speculating about some type of score keeping since 2017... It's nice to finally have some confirmation!

    So, some Donkey Kong Coaster concept art got leaked. Check @Alicia twitter if you want to see it, because I don't think we can link it here.

    Are we allowed to discuss it, too? Seems exactly like the model we saw. Love. It. Just perfect.

    Its in the Epic Universe thread, since it’s publicly released concept art it’s fair game.

    Doesn't publicly releasing art like this before something is set to open usually mean it’s safe to do so because it’s not happening anymore? I know Donkey Kong is happening I’m just going off past experience. Either that or the artist goofed and will be getting a call soon.

    Nope, they probably signed a contract saying “can use in a portfolio after x years” or something.

    They've also been developing this for years, so "x years" is likely up at this point considering minus DK they're starting to rollout their Nintendo stuff.
