Hey Thrill Seekers,
Happy New Year!!!
2018 is expected to be another amazing year for theme parks in Orlando with Disney opening Toy Story Land, SeaWorld opening Infinity Falls and Aquatica introducing us to Ray Rush.
Today though Universal have dropped a little hint at what we can expect from them in 2018. On top of Fast & Furious Supercharged set to open in Spring 2018, they’ve stated we can expect information about;
The previously-announced ride replacing Dragon Challenge in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade
Yep with Dragon Challenge now totally gone from Islands we’ll be waited with baited breath about what Universal will be replacing it will.
An additional projection mapping experience at Hogsmeade castle
The Christmas spectacular was so popular it makes sense that Universal might be looking to add a permanent show.
Universal’s Cinematic Spectacular being replaced
We knew this was happening but we’re yet to find out what will be replacing Universal’s Cinematic Spectacular. Rumours state it could be a movie themed show.
Something new going in where Terminator 2: 3D was
Yep we knew this was being replaced, what it is we’re not sure. Rumours seem to suggest a high octane IP. Some are guessing Jason Bourne…
A new venue coming to Universal CityWalk where Element was
Nope, I know nothing about this one.
Our expanding hotel collection
2 hotels are expected to be built on the old Wet n’ Wild land. We’ll get confirmation soonish I’d imagine.
The continued global expansion of our partnership with Nintendo. Our sister park in Japan has already broken ground on Super Mario World; I’m sure you can’t wait to hear what’s next.
Pretty self explanatory… we just have to wait to see if we can get involved in a massive Mario Kart simulator (we think its a yes).
We’ll keep you posted when we learn more.
