    ...well not all the secrets. This from a recent B. Gault interview sheds some light on that third attraction that was mentioned as awaiting approval.
    OK, let the movie guessing game begin!!!!!

    He made Jimmy Neutron sound more cosmetic (new film and décor, same ride system) and Shrek a major event

    If Universal could get their hands on the rights for the Matrix and build an attraction for it... OMG, that would kick a**.

    Not sure if there are any upcoming sequals to those movies coming out. I could not find any on upcoming movies.

    here is a short list....some are Universal some are not there are some other sequals but they just don't make sense.

    X-Men II
    Jurassic Park IV (may not be made)
    Matrix
    Lord of the Rings
    Harry Potter

    My guess is a Mummy/Scorpion King coaster in the Kong building.

    I find the fact that there are reports of an Egyptian-themed resort hotel interesting in this regard.

    Also there's fare more likely to be a Mummy/Scorpion King sequel than an Apollo XIII sequel. (Apollo XIII was the other rumored theme for a new coaster.)

    No inside info, just dumb guesses.

    Wait, who said what themepark this would be in? Harry Potter in the Lost Continent? There is a huge demand for him and it would be easy to market. I could really see a Potter ride there. Any family with a kid less then 10 would make their parents take them just for that ride. I don't know, but this has a big potential.

    Yeah US is already getting two new attractions...this one will be at IOA or at least that makes sense. Lord of the Rings would also fit into the Lost Continent.

    Since it's already been reported that Universal has licensed Harry Potter for the theme parks I'd say that's the most likely attraction.

    I can't find a link, it was in the NY newspaper around the time the movie came out, based on Earl's comment it may have been printed before the deal was finalized, but the point of the article was that Disney had lost to Universal for the rights.

    I'm a little surprised no one has mentioned The Fast and The Furious. Even though the movie was really bad it was one of Universal's biggest movies last summer. The sequel starts filming in September and will be in Miami, and will be released next June in theaters.

    i could really see an outta control drag race between two cars. just imagine what type of ride universal creative could produce. i picture something similar to dueling dragons but on land and inside a building.
