Ya this ride sounds really great. Likely going to extend its own IPs life.
This year on the Studio Tour a guide said SLoP is coming later on this year! I even asked about it in this thread. And I even asked him\her at the end of the tour, to make sure they didn't misspeak. They said later this year.
Makes sense honestly. With DL struggling so much may as well try and bring over some of that crowd this holiday season if possible
If it's opening this year, I hope they start on the Baker street transformation soon, getting a bit concerned they are just going to open SLOP in Baker street rather than turning it into NY!
I'd rather see the parisian plaza leveled completely for a full Illumination area. Regardless if they did do any work on that area it would start in jan after the holiday rush.
Honestly speaking, I can easily see them doing it more as "Set dressing"; as they could just reconfigure signage and logos for the area.
Y'know, especially if Parisian Courtyard's going in the next few years, it'd be better to just do minor tweaks until they fully demo.
Agreed, but I would prefer them to get it done in time for the ride opening.
Hope it's more substantial than that, but I'd take that over them doing nothing.
Hahah watch them just turn Parisian into New York's Little Italy
I think late this year might be a little premature. Forbidden Journey had team members on site for nearly 10 months before opening; Hippogriff was five months. Even though it's not a complicated ride, there are all sorts of testing and certifications that new rides have to undergo. As of right now, it's only 51 days until Thanksgiving and 78 until Christmas. That doesn't seem like enough time to get a new ride up and running.
Ehh you'd be surprised. The only thing I see holding this ride back from soft opening is the animatronics/ effects. But other than that I've been told to expect January softs at the latest
I mean, Forbidden Journey and Hippogriff aren't stand alone rides. They sort of had to wait for the rest of the land to be ready to be open.
This month, we take a look at construction progress on The Secret Life of Pets: Off the Leash

From RyanTheme Park:
Pets Place + Minion Way = Illumination Land? I am now very curious about the fate of Parisian Plaza and / French Street.
Add a Sing show and you're pretty much there already.
Give it a few years.
Meanwhile to show just how far along, portions of the facade scrim are coming down!
Something like this would be nice. Plus a clone of USJ's Freeze Rays.
is anyone else bothered by how lazy and cheap this already looks with the blank soundstage walls instead of finishing the facade. Smh. In 2019 (2020).
Perhaps Freeze Ray sliders isn't in the land as of now because it might be going in a different part of the park as a rethemed ride... perhaps though...
I find it...weird, considering this isn't something new for UC in general: see Fallon in a strange sense.
Wish it was painted light blue to be somewhat masked, but I'm winning my battles elsewhere...
