The only reason I'm excited for this is that I live like 5 minutes away from USH and I grew up with HP, so it'll be nice. Considering I have never been to florida and have no plans on going anytime soon, it'll at least make things a little more convenient.

I think this will help, hell yeah. But it won't do anything even remotely like the 30-50% increase Orlando has seen at IOA. Maybe for the first Summer, but it won't be sustained. I foresee IOA having bigger numbers for quite a few years. And the Uni addition keeping it going for qiute sometime. LA's Potter will be the lesser Potter the day it opens, most likely.

If it was totally new adventure, and different shops, it very well could be a 50% increase from vacationers. As it stands, a vacationer like myself, will make their Orlando vs LA decision based on everything EXCEPT the new Potter land in LA.

Youre throwing a lot of big accusations with no actual info or proof to any of it. You don't know Universals attendance numbers, their vacationer to local ratio, what they plan to build here, the draw of the park in the first place, nor do you understand how marketing works with things like Kong.

The point your trying to prove cant be proven for a few years, and even then I think your expectations for this are all off. We will have to wait and see.


Well, yeah, nobody on this thread can prove ANY of their opinions. The only for real facts are those accompanying the pictures from the media event. Which are basically: A Harry Potter expansion is going into Universal Hollywood, and it most likely will sell Butterbeer.

^You're right about that! No one in this thread can make an educated guess about USH's attendance patterns.

All I know is I'm excited for this expansion!

That is exactly my point! People LOVE Harry Potter, I grew up on it too!

Wow! I can't believe they used interlaced video and a 60Htz refresh rate on that hi res wall. C'mon Universal. Couldn't you splurge and pay the extra $125.00 for a scan converter. If that is any indication of the WWoHP USH is gonna get then it's doomed from the get go. :(

From WESH 2 News
Fire Burns At Universal Studios
No Reports Of Injuries From Fire In Building On Back Lot
By Stella Chan

LOS ANGELES (CNN) -- A fire at Universal Studios sent heavy smoke into the air on Thursday afternoon, according to officials in Los Angeles County.

About 55 firefighters responded and the fire in a three-story building on the back lot was nearly knocked down by about 1 p.m. PT, said Inspector Quvondo Johnson of the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

There were no reports of injuries from the fire, which was reported about noon.

The cause of the fire was unknown, but the building was under demolition, Johnson said.
