There is no need to build a clone, USH isn't starting with an already installed coaster.

USH will never build an outdoor rollercoaster. They are first and foremost a movie studio with insane sound restrictions. Imagine filming a movie when you have a trainload of screaming people flying by every minute. It's not going to happen.

That sounds like the only possible way to do it. Unless they hired a real wizard ;)


It's a team job: one employee will yell " Hey did you just take his wallet? He just took that guy's wallet!" Then as the guest are looking they'll quickly place the food on the table.


That would be awesome. Of course the employee would have to be dressed in appropriate 1950's clothes. ;)

It also begs to question that, depending on the size of the restaurant complex, could the same restaurant be added to Islands of Adventure's Wizarding World of Harry Potter in the next phase of expansion...


How popular is Harry Potter in Japan?

A range of apparel, toys and posters will mark the milestone in 2014

Independent entertainment licensing agency Creative Licensing Corporation has detailed the merchandise programme for Bill and Ted's 25th birthday celebrations in 2014.

The stars of 1989 movie Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure and its 1991 sequel Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey celebrate 25 years in 2014, and there will be a range of apparel, toys, posters and live show marking the milestone.

The duo have enjoyed a life beyond the films thanks to Bill and Ted's Excellent Halloween Adventure at Universal Studios Orlando Florida and Universal Studios Hollywood. The show has been running since 1991 and will now continue to run for the next five years thanks to new deal with Universal.

Elsewhere, a new Bill and Ted comic book series is on the way from BOOM along with collectible figures from Funko and art posters from Mondo.

Fans will also be able to wear Bill and Ted clothing thanks to new deals with apparel makers Global in the UK and Junkfood and ODM in the US.

Bill and Ted will also return to the big screen in the near future, with Alex Winter recently confirming that work is under way for a third film.

As if my Thanksgiving couldn't have been better enough already. This is GREAT news! Hopefully it returns to HHN next year, but I'm mostly excited for the B&T comic books. :)

25 years? Dang! Crazy that a whole new generation will probably know them from HHN and not even realize they had two movies as well.

Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves have been talking about a third film for the past few years now. Nothing has ever been confirmed or cancelled and both of them always mention how much they love the characters and would do a third film at a moment's notice, regardless of paycheck. I really hope they get someone to fund it!

Also, I had NO idea that next year was the 25th anniversary. I can't wait to see what the parks do for the Halloween show!

I can't imagine them not getting the funding if both stars are committed.
