They are also going to implode this tent.

By implode, do you mean fold up and move across the park?

No, I mean like dynamite, explosions, and bunny rabbits! It will be a spectacle of insane proportions! Tickets go on sale Tuesday.

Well in that case, maybe it will be replaced with fluffy fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo.

Hollywood Drive-In Golf's Facebook page says that they'll be open by this Wednesday, possibly sooner.

Are there mini golf enthusiasts camped out to be first yet?

...and they will also be dynamited in a fluffy gooey explosion of awesomeness! Sad to see Jaws like that, but the mini golf looks great.

Yeah, I'm not much for mini-golf these days, but this one looks like a lot of fun.

Ah, Jaws... Jaws is gone, but not Hulk freaking Hogan? EPIC SWEATY FAIL.

The mini-golf looks amazing. And why did they need to do that with Jaws? It was such a nice area... But Harry Potter expansion will be just as good, if not better!

It would be nice to get another coaster where Jaws was, even though it's highly unlikely.

^It's not highly unlikely - there's a great deal of talk about a Gringott's coaster/dark ride combination in that spot.

I was fortunate enough to check out the updated BMG show (thanks to the awesome Student Discount, $35 tickets) and it was fantastic. I had seen the old show several times...and I loved all the updates. I was just not as overwhelmed with the show in its entirety. I feel they pushed the inside jokes and didn't really explain...although I could be a little biased for the fully covered TP ending and the original animation section were super impressive and way deeper. I was fortunate to see the original show around 5 or 6 times, and I have seen a few of the touring shows. The updates were absolutely necessary and the ending was very impressive...I just am partial to the original...but again it's because of first time experiences. I still love the show...I just wish they had kept more of the old aspects in more then just a reference. Just one mans opinion ;) Don't worry, I don't think I'm right and I know everybody enjoys different. things.
