    I mean, TWDA was built as a small project, to exist within the larger buildings that consisted the first phase of Universal Blvd on a major level.

    Even if TWDA leaves, there will be no deconstruction of that building, for a long while.

    If they did end up clearing out TWD for SLOP. They'd only need to pop a hole in the wall to connect the two structures.

    True, but it wouldn't be a full tear-down like what some would think.

    Any Walking Dead replacement will most likely be post Nintendo.

    Right, the space was literally designed to hold queue-like entertainment so that wouldn't make sense lol.

    I believe TWDA contract is good for another 2 years. After that, it wont have anything to do with SLOP or Nintendo. I can only hope and pray for a Universal Monsters replacement>:)

    I've heard otherwise.

    All very odd since there were talks about adding/replacing things in the attraction a few months back...

    With horror, it can (and will, look at House of Horrors) become stale.

    The Walking Dead Attraction, has had no signs of improving it's quality of life; or upgrading it with new scenes off of the later seasons.

    I'd rather want Murdy to capitalize on a NBCUniversal Experience-esque attraction to replace it (as he did mention that it was one of the ideas for the venue a few day's ago (as I asked him about it..)); but I would suspect that dining would be higher on happening for that space than an actual attraction.

    Why not both? Make it a restaurant AND a museum?

    Here's an even better idea: if they really wanted to maximize the space, why not have the restaurant/museum on the second floor and a small scale House of Horrors-esque attraction on the first floor? Maybe even have the restaurant first-second floors and the walkthru first floor/basement. That would really maximize the space.

    IMO, the only way I can buy that; is if the Restaurant is smaller than some may think (and it's kitchen is connected with Starbucks, or is just a grab and go spot) and the museum is a one way/entrance-exit through that alleyway.

    Honestly, I'd rather just have one or the other.

    Guys, you can't have a haunted house without using the second floor as support space. That's where the breakroom/operations infrastructure lives.

    I have no idea why everyone keeps begging for a full service restaurant. I've heard no indication of that returning to this slot, and the park has made it fairly clear it isn't interested in pursuing that type of dining inside the park proper.

    Here's an even better idea: Demolish everything except for potter and just restart the entire park:bolt::lol:
