I am not saying they should or should not build transformers, but I think the reasoning tied to the possibility that someday spidey might need to be rethemed is poppycock.


I agree. Had they replaced Spiderman with Transformers, sure. But I don't think that's the reason here. I would really chock it up to seeing its success elsewhere, and rushing the decision to give the Orlando resort an intermediate attraction before Potterland v2 (which maybe has been delayed a year, we don't have an actual date - maybe to tie in with some IMAX movie rereleases or something). Plus, this way Universal can either steal some of Disney's thunder with New Fantasyland, or maybe be able to get some of the people down in Orlando for that expansion to take an extra day and check out the new ride at Universal.
Last Ride: Space Mountain: Mission 2 (DLP)
Next Ride: Intimidator 305 (KD)

Would be funny if this ended up being a really big Panda Express or something.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

^Actually, they are so concerned about the line at Moe's that they are building the biggest one in the world! Of course, there will still be a line...
