Don't forget SCREENZ. If they had that tradition back in the early 90s, each wall would have stretched back 20ft to accommodate a CRT.Universal has their own traditions.
-Only cover 75% of the show building.
-Open everything before it's close to running properly.
-Master Planning like a 5 year old with ADHD on Red Bull. (If a project hasn't broken ground within 30 mins. of it's first mention in a meeting, replace with a more current project)
-"Why use a stupid toy robot when you can use a MASSIVE IMAX screen instead?"
-and my favorite tradition, "Hot Nurse W/Jello Shots".
I don't mind this cash grab at all. The fans would have been a bit pissed off if they couldn't buy some last minute merchandise.I'm not talking about that kind of crap that they call nostalgia. To be clear, i'm fine with selling people on memories/nostalgia, but the way Disney does it is slimy. They didn't produce any merch for UoE before just last week pretty much and not much else for GMR either.
What Universal needs is to make people feel more attached to certain things... I would love to see some original/timeless attractions in the fourth park that people instantly fall in love with. It doesn't always have to be the hottest thing.
I'm not the biggest fans of the rides at all but I would have been tempted to pick something up.
