    With everyone thinking it is Transformers or possibly Kong with the TF ride system, how disappointed will the majority be if SS44 is really going to be that perma-haunt after all?

    I hate the TF movies but I am DEFINITELY excited for this. The ride in Hollywood looks awesome, and it's not like the ride is replacing anything.

    I just hope Monster's Cafe doesn't get scrapped for a giftshop. I expect it to happen, but here's hoping.

    1). Stay the same as is
    2). Get turned into a Transformers restaurant like the one in Singapore

    WOW what a day! Transformers all but confirmed and a new hotel announced. WAIT! what thread was that a couple weeks ago where some people were arguing that Potter 2.0 was the only thing on the horizon after the "year to be here"?!? I remember a few pages of heated discussion somewhere? Anyone remember?

    It's definitely not a haunt. The permit clarification request asks for what will be draining out of the "ride lift pits", so whatever it is will be a ride. And it's most likely TF.

    I'd imagine Monsters will be rethemed, but I don't think it will become a shop.

    The haunt is completely ruled out at this point,a permit was released today saying "More information required on the type of waste (oily waste?) discharging into maintenance pit drains and Ride Lift Pit drains."

    Edit:Skip beat me to it.

    Hmm... Drains in a lift pit - I just noticed on twitter that Behind the Thrills tweeted earlier that they'd heard Madagascar rather than TF. :shrug:

    Madagascar wouldn't fit in the area (theme wise) if that was to ever be built in USF it would be in Kidzone

    Just joined mostly because of this thread.

    Madagascar seems like a huge risk considering that the second level of Madagascar: A Crate Adventure ws highly problematic and ultimately abandoned.

    Madagascar doesn't have a lift.

    And there's not enough room for Madagascar there anyway.

    Well it was just a thought - being a rather watery affair it would make sense for it to have drains :lol: And I don't know about it not fitting, you can make just about anything fit with the right facade really. I don't consider Madagascar to be that far in the 'kiddy' direction, at least no more so that Shrek or Jimmy Neutron.

    Edit - Ninja'd, so many people posting at the same time! Well if it wouldn't physically fit I guess that's that ;)

    Ok I have news.... I had lunch with someone today... and I got permission to say this much.

    What is going at SS44 is already at Singapore.

    And it has already been discussed in this thread.

    that is all I can say... again, I was told I could say that much... but let me just say it was the world's best lunch... I am psyched for this, HP 2.0 and this years HHN along with the new Hotel, and soooo much more!

    Word is that people keep getting blown away by Comcast and how willing they are to say yes. I guess the financials on guest spending are coming back so positive from Despicable Me, Superstar Parade, Sponge Bob Store Pants, and Universal Cimenatic Spectacular, that Comcast feels like they have struck gold, and all they want to do is "mine for more" by building more stuff for people to spend their money on.

    Vindication is amazing.

    I think that'd be a guarantee.
