Hope they do a better job of this than the queue at Transformers in Orlando. Maybe something with Nest props etc?
Also... I guess once this is finished there is nothing to stop them knocking down the old extended queue/Panda Express / Bathrooms for potential expansion outwards for the SNW construction site
They've already torn down the old Extended Queue.
If anything, they're waiting for other reasons..
Ahhh ok, didn't realise they had already. Doing your hint dropping again I see!
In any case, this definitely is going to be a smaller extended queue (unless there's more to what that photo is showing in width and length) compared to the previous. And honestly, that makes a lot of sense with how the queue's set up once inside the showbuilding.
What I'm hoping, is them going Shrek 4D on that facade.
I know its just extended/overflow queue (which they will definitely need), but I really hope they theme it a lot more than the original extended queue. It should feel like an extension of the existing military base rather than an after thought (especially if you will have to wait in it for over an hour or 3)...
Extended queue construction:
You know what I'm curious about... Is whether or not they'll do anything to address the emergency exit evac stairs and stuff.. Like I've said before, just because its an extended overflow queue, doesn't mean it shouldn't feel like an after thought. Universals wants to build worlds. So I expect to feel like I'm at the N.E.S.T. military base headquarters even when outside waiting 2+ hours in the 90+ degree heat.
100% agree... but I'd lower your expectations a bit, that way we can all be pleasantly surprised when it's ok!
To point out, seems like the extended queue is going to go all the way to the now park owned Stage 29.
From the latest JP land video, looks like the extended queue is getting a roof.
Still really hoping this is well themed and not just a switchback with sun shade!
You can see there gonna place TVs on the roof
In case this wasn't obvious, expect future Horror Nights mazes in the adjacent soundstage to utilize this queue space.
I imagine this will be open-sided without much theming other than perhaps some movie posters. Can't think of any extended queue with elaborate theming. Be grateful for shade, TVs and hopefully some misting fans as from what I last remember, DreamWorks Theatre's extended queue didn't have any TVs or fans.
Don't be too excited...the same old extended queue video is returning.
Also, it looks like from JPLand's latest video more, that they're using curved canopy coverings..which, is a meh thing IMO.
