Something new for 2002

There's a signed contract for a new attraction at USF that will debut around the middle of next year. Something goes out, something comes in.

Well, you know that I hate doing this, but that's the end of the discussion on this subject from me for a while.

No, it's not anything to do with BTTF, and that's all there is to say for now. This one is not on any rumor board.
 
Earl, I about had a heart attack when I saw this post and realized that it was you who was the postee.

Will we be able to guess what attraction it will be by a "coming in 2002" sign next to the leaving attraction? If so how soon can we expect the sign? Can you tell us the amount or a round about figure of the cost for this new attraction? Sorry I know you said you can't say anymore I just couldn't help it. I personally think it will be Earthquake or Kongfrontation to go and something along the lines fo The Mummy will replace it. Please, just say it is not Jaws and I will be a happy camper. :D

Let see, If I count the no's correctly:

New Attraction in 2002.
It will replace a current attraction.
*It will not be BTTF
*It will not be Earthquake
*It will not be Kong
*It will not be Jaws
It will not be advertised.

Well I guess that narrows it down.

As for my thoughts (Guesses):
-Won't be Twister (Big Attendance like top 4)
-Won't be Hannah Barbara (One of few kiddy things)
-Wouldn't guess it to be T23D
-I guess it would be the Alfred H. show.
-If not maybe the makeup show? (very small theatre)


Hey here's a more stupid question. Several times walking around USF I noticed an area between T23D and the enterance that is a big white gate. on the wall on either side are the big fan things pointed to the parkside. Anyone know what that is or was??? Sorry its so vague.

What about where the old hercules and xena show was. There was a rumor on screamscape that said Universal was trying to come up with a new attraction. Also I read the Hanna Barbara ride was about to have its contract expired.
 


So Earl, are you saying No? ;)

I thought about this after responding the first time and think I might be on the right track...now. I don't want to say anything yet, I wanna wait til more details arise.

They are probably going to get rid of Beetlejuice like they did in California. :( We like Beetlejuice, it is a good break and even our small ones liked it.
 
My guess is that something will finally occupy the old Herc and Xena building.

Ok, I couldn't hold out. I think Hanna-Barbara's Funtastic...(can't remember rest of name) will be leaving. I think I remember somewhere that their contract with Universal will be up soon and they could either be renewing their contract with a new ride featuring a new character like Scooby Doo or a new company could be filling in with a new ride. Either way I think it will be something light hearted for the youngins and still have entertainment value for the older crowd, maybe a Goonies ride? LOL (I wish!) Am I any closer Earl?
One last guess, it's not Apollo 13 themed is it?

I got it! Earl's office will be a ride! His chair will spin faster than Storm Force Acceleratron. Bungee cord jumps out his office window will be more thrilling than Dr. Doom's Fearfall. The near misses of his boss trying to give him work and Earl hiding will be more thrilling than the near-misses of Dueling Dragons. And who can forget the amazing gift shop -- stocked full of pencils and paper clips!

OK, maybe not. :D

If I had to guess, I'd say its Hanna-Barbera.
I was just discussing it with a friend the other day, and we both agreed that if it was replaced and they wanted a new ride in the same vein, they should make a deal with the Cartoon Network to secure their characters.
 
You know, Earl...

I doubt if you "hate" doing this to us...

Wait a minute . . . could Earl be talking about Animal Planet Live. It is going in the old Animal Actors stage. BTW, what is this supposed to be? I assumed it was still going to be an Animal Actors show, just with a new stage and a new script.
 
I don't think its Animal Planet, because Earl said Screamscape didn't know anything about it, but I think Screamscape has already posted the Animal Planet thing.
 
How about a B&M Dive machine like oblivion at Alton Towers in england?...no one has been building these and it seems like a waste of technical design on B&M's part..but eh....could be the rumored "Apollo 13" ride...cuz ya know...the straight down thing. :eek:

Wishfull thinking...it's great aint it?
