Harry Potter At IoA & Simpsons Confirmed
I'm not supposed to be letting the cat out of the bag just yet but I just got confirmation of a Harry Potter ride. The project is called Strongarm and the ride will be located in the Lost Continent area of IoA. By the time the ride opens in 2010 the Lost Continent will have allegedly turned into a Harry Potter themed land if all goes as planned. The Harry Potter themed land is not 100% confirmed, but the ride is a done deal. The ride will be a Robocoaster on a track dark ride that is supposed to surpass the Spider-Man technology. If everything ends up how it is supposed to the Lost Continent will be entirely Harry Potter themed. Fury will be turned into an attraction relating to the Chamber of Secrets and Sinbad is supposedly going to be demolished to put project Strongarm in it's place. I am not a Harry Potter fan at all. I think it is the most overrated thing in the word, but I've been waiting for a Robocoaster ride for awhile now. Should be a fun ride at least.
Universal is set to make an announcement of the Simpsons replacing Back to the Future in 2008. The Simpson characters were in the parks the other day filming promotional material. I'm not a big fan of the Simpsons either but the ride is supposed to be gutted and replaced with smoother technology. BTTF was simulated by hydrolics, Simpsons will be simulated using the air technology.
Just thought I'd pass it along. I'll try to answer any questions but obviously can not give away sources for obvious reasons.
