    Saw the noon show Saturday, and it was honestly more enjoyable than I remembered it. Felt like watching a live taping of an 80s action movie.

    Farewell, Sindbad, thanks for the years of entertainment you’ve given to us. :wave:

    Damn, I was thinking that the Skyplex got moved to IOA. Is that a false rumor?

    Great Hall should always be on the “to do” list until they build it. Only because it makes sense, would be well received, and make bank.
    Outside of that, nothing else needs done.

    That’s... pretty empty.

    My test grade isn’t that important, but I’m flattered anyways! ;)

    Totally, because there’s no big event that Universal wants to currently promote.

    The big “S” medallion sign was already down on Saturday.

    I can't wait for this to fall flat on a big ol' bucket of nothing.

    It was the sign under the arch that has gone. Could have been missing as well yesterday, I don’t know.

    ..allow me to..somewhat carefully tread on something, and this was with permission. (Also, keep in mind with what I say, with salt)

    Last month, there was..something in the moving wings. I've been..somewhat wanting to not mention this, but I was given some wording that indicated that things were in motion for press. That said, after the Denizen shoot, there was a rather..long period of silence on the potential of news coming.

    My gut, tells me there may be something by the end of the year. But my logic doesn't want to get people's hopes up, considering we still don't know anything concrete on what the IOA potter coaster, or the T2 replacement entails (even though the writing is on the wall for those two in what they'll do).

    Patience, is needed. And hopefully, things can pay off in the near future.

    Interested to see pic's of Sindbad soon, to see how things change (or how little things change). Either way, glad that a show of that quality is gone.

    Keep in mind, Universal did say that there would be Nintendo news this year. While it doesn’t seem likely anymore, there was definitely something planned. And it wasn’t related to SNW in KZ. That had already moved before the blog was written.

    I’m having fun with this but I’m also keeping an open mind.

    Remember, Nintendo themselves are the reason Mario was announced so early. Who’s to say they wouldn’t push for that type of announcement again especially if Zelda could be what opens first in Orlando.

    Not holding my breath but Zelda could be an awesome fit into Lost Continent. It would fill in what has always felt like a empty spot.

    Do you really..have to say that? Seems oddly foul in taste.

    Honestly, Zelda at LC & Sindbad's location, may be a great option, depending on how they handle the translation of that franchise into a themed format such as theme parks..
