Hey Thrill Seekers,
Today Universal confirmed that Bill & Teds Excellent Halloween Adventure would not be returning after this year and that HHN27 would be their farewell tour.
This has lead to a lot of speculation regarding the future of Fear Factor Live, the location where Bill & Teds is performed. Fear Factor Live has been continually rumoured to be on the Universal chopping blog and from what we’re hearing it could well be time for the axe to fall.
What could be replacing it?
The strongest rumour and a rumour that has been doing the rounds for a very long time now is the Ministry of Magic. As some of you may already know, if you head inside the red telephone box outside Diagon Alley and dial MAGIC (62442) you’ll be answered with a message stating ‘the ministry of magic is not open’ which has always led to speculation that Universal maybe considering it.
Ministry of Magic
There has been loads and loads of rumours surrounding “phase 3” and the Ministry of Magic – the largest rumour has always been that Fear Factor Live is going to be demolished to make way for London.. and the centre of the British magical community’s government.
To place it here would mean it would be an expansion of Diagon Alley and not a third Wizarding World attraction. Universal don’t do things by halves though and I would still expect new rides, shops and food places if this were to happen.
I’ve had a little think about what sort of attraction could appear along with the Ministry of Magic and I think it would be something along the lines of battles within the Ministry of Magic, fighting off dementors , watching a duel between Professor Dumbledore and Lord Voldermort or as Jamie mentioned in his previous blog – more interactive wand opportunities and maybe even classes for young Wizard and Witches.
All of the talk and hype about this potentially happening will hopefully give Universal a push to maybe confirming the rumours to be true?
