What has Karen done so far? I don’t enough about her. I’m ignorant to this subject.
That sounds like it would be a positive move.
The week before opening I rode SSE and it turned slightly to facer each scene . Opening day one of the cars didn't lock at the top, and the car spun around the wrong way nearly throwing guests out of the car going downhill (forward instead of backwards). <EPCOT opening day was a disaster slightly above Univeral's opening>. The quick fix was to lock the cars at the bottom at load, and at the top, an employee manually unlocked, turned the car, and relocked it (what a fun job that must have been). It took a few months to automate that - and the cars never turned again.
I think the big takeaway will be with the merchandise. People spend big on their pets, and I can just picture all the new opportunities this franchise will create. If there is no store associated with this ride, Universal could be leaving money on the table.
They already sell merch for this ride within the park
Well, plush and t-shirts, those exist already. But I’m talking about real pet items: collars, leashes, squeaky toys, food/water bowls, etc. Pet supply stores already exist, but what if they patterned an exit giftshop around that idea?
Funny enough, Universal just released the official trailer for SLOP 2.
I have a feeling that wasn’t a coincidence.
How about 'real'animals for adoption from the local humane society or animal shelters in an exit area. A kind of petting zoo with character and meaning.
Id bet they are going to have some form of connectivity with Animal Actors, to where the show gives light to the ride and more specifically, the adoption aspect.
..in thinking out loud, I have to wonder when the remaining Baker Street facades will be tackled. Considering they are going to be needed to change, I'd have to think sooner than later.
I do like the Classic Monsters though
Scaffolding is now on the side facing TWDA.
That’d be the most heartwarming thing they’d ever do!
From Theme Park Obsession,
I know most people here are more focused on Orlando in general but the fact that USH has three active construction sites for Jurassic World, Pets, and Nintendo boggles my mind. Not too long ago, USH barely qualified as a full theme park. By 2022 this place will be home to Transformers, Mummy, Jurassic World, Mario Kart, Pets, Forbidden Journey, AND the studio tram tour. That's seven E-ticket rides, not counting the two simulator D-tickets flanking the upper lot (Simpsons and Minion Mayhem). Talk about a transformation! In terms of ride variety and balance USH will be better off than USF when all is said and done.
If this attraction doesn't have a "build a pet" shop attatched for the kiddies to provide a forever home for, Universal is missing the boat.
I fully expect plushies to come in for this attraction, in droves. Especially with Snowball's new get-up for Pets 2.
Oh, that’s gonna be an instant success for sure!
