    I think Mythos is going, while it's a great restaurant, it seems like its never full.

    I've always said that after Hogsmeade and Diagon, Lost Continent is the best well themed land in UO.

    I ate there Friday. Still ok but not what it was. Prices were increased too.

    Yeah, Mythos is great but not the best... basically Lost Continent in general: It's ok, but it's fine to replace.

    I just don't see how it makes sense to keep Mythos but level everything else. I mean let's keep this Greek themed restaurant and the rest of the land will be whatever it will become. Can't they just turn it into something appropriately themed for the new land and still do above average theme park food. I'm not saying I won't miss the place I just don't get the need to keep it.

    They wouldn't "keep" Mythos as-is. If they "keep" it, it means they'll demo everything but the kitchen and rebuild around it, like they did with the Enchanted Oak during the construction of Hogsmeade.

    Now that I'm okay with. I just thought Disneyhead was implying that they were toying with the idea of keeping it as is.

    I would’ve like to have seen a themed land dedicated to the newer clash of the titans remake with Liam Neeson but those 2 movies failed terribly.

    Maybe the show gets a new backstory. Like it's now an all female Ninth Voyage of Sindbabe. But as expected their map reading skills aren't great so they never found the theater. ;)

    Oh look at me I could be a story writer for Disney.;):lmao:
    But the thing I heard after it closed is that Universal wouldn't touch it for a very long time.

    It's a shame they're not using this for a new show of some sort. I recall they spent a significant amount to repair and refurb the stage's infrastructure when they redid the Sindbad show a couple of years ago.

    You can see glimpses of the set from the Hogwarts express queue. It's completely untouched.

    Just after it closed I saw some traffic at the stage doors for a week or so. I think they were pulling the high dollar stuff out.

    I wouldn't expect anything to happen in LC until Jurassic World Land is wrapping up.

    When should we hear any replacement or retheming makeover of lost continent along with sinbad show replacement? After T2:3D replacement is done at USF?

    It could be years, and would likely come with a complete re-do of all of Lost Continent.

    No seriously I already know you guys don’t want any classic attractions to return or does not seem likely because their are more popular IP’s out their to be introduced to the third gate.
