Omg yes please tell me you're right in some capacity lol.

Honestly though, Universal is destroying it with the interactivity. They're clearly going to corner the gaming crowd here (if this is even remotely true, of course), between offering interactive gaming experiences outside the parks, inside, at multiple parks, they're going all in. Good strategy.

Tampa <---> Orlando
I mean that’s very clearly a patent for a ride system. They’re not gonna put a ride in CityWalk
While the probability of the space being used as a ride is extremely low. Remember that Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit was supposed to be tied into City-Walk, allowing for after-hours rides(separate admission). That obviously did not pan out...

While I think the consensus is that this will be some type of flagship store. Does anyone think that there is a possibility for some kind of smaller, separate admission, interactive attraction?

I have heard wishful thinking for a Pokemon gym. Maybe the location could be used for a "The Void" -like experience or an escape room? Would that do well in CityWalk?

Lemme get that Nintendo Room plssss

So if we're getting themed rooms we have to assume Potter, Minions, Jurassic Park.. maybe a retro room for ET, Jaws, etc? Dreamworks room!
