    Thanks, I still hear some stuff, but I have been really out of the loop the past 2 years or so.

    Nope-- at least not directly. Universal is keeping things on the DL.

    A giant billboard with the concept art saying coming soon facing the OCCC would be nice but completely unnecessary.

    Saw Alicia/TPShark’s podcast and found the multi level land thing interesting. Looking at the art, looks like Frankenstein Land is multilevel too :)

    If all that is said in that Podcast about SNW is true, its going to be very easy to spend an entire day in there depending on how big the actual play areas are. 4 potential attractions, dining, interactivity EVERYWHERE. Im already planning for my first day on my Epic Universe trip to be spent solely in Nintendo :)

    So the levels are staying? Already very noticeable, but I wasn't sure if it was a trick to store dirt while they built retention ponds or something. There are some fairly tall areas.

    Looks like you walk uphill(stairs?) to the windmill and then can turn right onto the second level of the land, and looks to me like the ride exits onto the lower level (where we thought that the ride entrance was originally)

    Also worried about kinetic energy in the land. Maybe the windmill is gonna spin?

    No I was talking about rumored Super Smash Bros show, not the play areas but they sound like play areas for kids/adults.

    Seeing that, and I decided to actually put up a topic dedicated towards this; as this should be something..to think about for the future of Universal's parks just in general. Regardless if Orlando and Beijing are going to be well, for a manner of speaking, the guinea-pigs of facial recognition..
