    Sounds like perfect music for a flat ride/spinner.

    Alien Saucers/Mater's are certainly not must-rides, but they are significantly more fun than teacups/dumbo/Stormforce/Twirl/etc

    Flat rides have always been a weak spot for UOR. My hope is that HTTYD finally changes that.

    Let's hope they don't follow Disney or we might be paying $200 for a 'Gold Coin experience' ;)

    That’s why you’d put side entrances and/or a second level for the extra stuff ;)
    Idk the beginning makes me think of getting to the top of a lift and then going down a drop.

    Okay, to play Disney's advocate, at least your getting a high-quality, cool lightsaber alongside the experience. Better then just buying it in a gift shop to save what? 20, 30 bucks? They should have made it free to watch like Ollivanders, however.

    Is the entrance from Mario to DK gonna be a warp pipe?

    Also, should we expect the Mario bands to be used in DK country?

    Alicia, not trying to be too forward so if you can't answer I fully understand. From what you know about all the SNW attractions, which one are you most anticipated for?

    Okay word thats what I was hoping haha. They all look really cool especially DK and Mario Kart. Gah I'm so excited. Little worried I'm over hyping myself but also anything we have seen from Universal on this looks A+ so idk this looks to be exactly what I hoped for a Nintendo land.

    Mario Kart for sure.

    That being said, I think Donkey Kong is going to be a ride we've never really seen from Universal, and will fill a huge gap.

    How do y’all think we’ll get points in DK Country? Will we be able to effect the ride experience?

    I'll be at USJ for a couple of days in early June this summer. I was really hoping to be there a few weeks after this opens, but from the recent construction photos I've seen, they really have a lot of work left to do.

    Does anyone know if they are on schedule or have they hit some snags?

    The park themselves have said this will open sometime between Feb and April so even if they run late you will be fine.

    You'll likely be fine. Scaffolding makes everything look worse than it is. Also, the rides are the more important thing here. Id presume all focus is put into building Mario Kart, Yoshi, so they can then work out those kinks and get the ride up and running, then build the exterior. But frankly I have no insight on theme park construction so I truly do not know but this is my guess. Id like to think testing on Mario Kart is being done as we speak :)

    Oh I haven't seen that posted anywhere. All I've seen is "Spring 2020" and I know that runs until the end of June, but knowing that Feb-April could be the time frame does make me feel more optimistic. Thanks!

    Alicia a question. Will guests be forced to get the wristbands as you enter the land or are they like add-one kinda like the wands.

    By the sounds of the podcast with TPShark, their purchasable. I wonder if they’ll branch out to other themed bands like Luigi/Peach/Toad/Daisy/Bowser
