Morning Thrill Seekers,
Universal Studio’s are on a bit of a roll at the moment, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter has been a huge success and rumours about its expansion have Muggles everywhere scouring the internet for information, (we get our info from here – wizarding) they have already announced that their popular Transformers 3D ride will be opening in Orlando this year and speculation has them in talks to purchase the rights for a Middle Earth Land but could an existing section of Islands of Adventure be their secret jewel.
On my last visit to the Islands of Adventure I commented to a colleague that I thought Jurassic Park was on its last legs and would inevitably be replaced with an extension to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, in my opinion the Land had begun to look a little old when compared to its neighbour (WWHOP) and with the movie franchise all but a distant memory perhaps time had caught up on it…
However…. I came across a BBC article confirming that Jurassic Park 4 was in the works and is set to be released on the 13th June 2014! I remember watching the original and being amazed at the effects and that was over 10 years ago, imagine what they could do now! Obviously it will be in 3D.
As Universal own the rights to Jurassic Park (unlike Marvel and Harry Potter) it would make sense to relaunch this part of the park with new rides and new technology; remember the 3 Jurassic Park films grossed well over a Billion Dollars Worldwide making it one of the most successful trilogy’s of all time… there is definitely money to be made…
What do you think?
