Wasn't sure where to put this but I've heard from a performer friend that the stilt walking mummy guards are being cut. Can anyone else confirm? Love those guys and they definitely added something to the lower lot and were always entertaining to watch. Would be a shame if true

This is correct. Spongebob, Patrick, and the walk-around "monster" Mummy are also being cut after NYE. Not sure on Frankenstein's Monster or Dracula yet.

Hmmm....could this be a hint about Revenge of the Mummy's future?
Doubtful that it means much in the grander scheme.

I feel like we should continue this on the proper thread for character meet and greets..but that's a massive bit, especially on Spongebob and Patrick. Is Dora still around for USH? Because if not..that's going to be interesting to see the Nickelodeon characters finally make their leave.

There are many who are mentioning the $15 minimum wage hitting California. These increases always have an effect to the general public which people seem to forget. Some will lose their job tomorrow, the general public will feel the pinch.
Right... Cause a few entertainers on pay roll is going to force the gates shut.

Budgeting for theme parks is a complicated thing. Things like SNW get funded from Corporate. But smaller additions come from the parks profits. USH has a lot of smaller projects in the works like JW:TR, SLoP, NBC Sports Grill & Brew, and Toothsomes. USH also shot themselves in the foot by overshooting the acceptable price point for APs and have had to backtrack on that.

It sucks, but some cuts had to be made.

Wait.

So SpongeBob and Patrick aren't even going to be on the parade float? Is it just going to be Squidward doing meet and greets in the SpongeBob store?
