    Huh, never even thought of UO courting to particular people - ironic, seeing as that's how we got a lot of the original rides (Spielburg). In Netflix's wheelhouse though, I don't see much that would line up with FW. A couple of animated movies off of DreamWorks maybe, but I can't imagine a Stranger Things ride (which is debatably the best original content Netflix has brought to the world).

    Although I would happily take a Bill Nye Saves the World ride.

    You would be correct. :)

    Debatably you did have to point it out...but I also don't watch Simpsons...

    I am the generation that will excitedly shout Bill's name over and over again. I would like to petition for Bill to take over Fallon. That theater setup would have been cool as a glorified science fair.

    Well apparently so, because it's actually a South Park quote.


    (the episode goes on to explain that just about anything they do can be compered to Simpsons, kind of similar to Universal with Disney)

    Bill is great in his element, which was definitely not the case for Ellen's Energy Adventure. Two amazing people in one awful ride. Arguably that's Disney's fault. But it'd be hard to make a ride with Bill being Bill fit in the parks, what I mean is it's basically taking him out of his element.

    I remember there being some Bill Nye in Innovations back in the day. I have this strong image in my head of Bill being surround by angry, talking, clouds.

    Its not just the 3D. By showing at 60fps, your brain interprets it as real. (Showscan, a system in the 70s, used 70mm film at 70fps in 2D. And the brain still reacted as if it was real. If there was motion on the screen you felt motion. Hard to describe but the effect was astonishing. But it was too expensive using film).

    Universal owns that property so they wouldn't need Netflix to use it.

    Probably so. Wasn't his show a Disney production, or at least on the Disney Channel?

    From a scale to 1 to 10 the likelyhood we will hear anything official for a fourth gate at universal Orlando? The offficial title? How many worlds their will be officially? Fantastic Worlds may not be the front runner anymore if you’ve read screamscape’s article. WB may object Universal Orlando to not use Fantastic Worlds name in their new park and even not include Fantastic Beasts! Pretty big news. Doesn’t Potter already have enough anyway with theme park presence at USF & IOA? This makes Epic Universe the front runner if WB decides not to let Universal use Fantastic Worlds. The article goes on to say at screamscape Universal May have to fight over WB to use the FW name which could lead to a huge argument.

    But in all seriousness ThrillRideLover3214 stop obsessing over Kong and Godzilla being in the 4th gate it will not happen. Also don't judge skull island reign of Kong if you have never been on it. Its a fantastic ride!

    Out of curiosity, has anyone here been to a new theme park on opening day? What's it like?
