Hi a lot of people agree with this, especially on all the other forums I am on. I kind of felt that way too the last year or so. Universal is still one of my favorite theme parks to visit. However, with all the new information coming out with the new HP coaster in IOA I think they are on a different track now. I hope this is the start of new ride types coming in the future.

I hope your right. Though I'd imagine that if/when they ever replace Earthquake on the Studio Tour in Hollywood that they likely would try and port something similar to Orlando (similar to what they did with Kong and FatF). Hopefully that won't be for a while because it's nice having the practical effect heavy Earthquake on the Hollywood tour...

I'm excited to reveal the second haunted house coming to Halloween Horror Nights 2018. This fall, fear will infect you in a brand new house that lives within a world of a fan-favorite from our past: Dead Exposure: Patient Zero.
The original Dead Exposure house shook guests to their core. Easily one of the most terrifying houses we’ve ever had—you entered complete darkness with only bright flashes revealing the zombie horde surrounding you.
We’re bringing back that same terror. But this time, we’re dropping you in the middle of Paris in 1982. The city of lights has gone dark as chaos spreads, unchecked. Hordes of vicious, flesh-eating undead are swarming the streets.
The military is forcing those not affected into quarantine and a vaccination is being given. It’s the only chance to ward off the sickness but there are major side effects… blindness.
You’ll be lost in the darkness as the undead hunt you. An attack can come from anywhere. You don’t have to remember the original house, to understand this single truth: They will find you.
This is our first original house announced for this year’s event. We’ve got even more haunted houses and scare zones to announce for Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights. This year’s event will take place on select nights Sept. 14 through Nov. 3.
Bookmark the blog for updates and click here to grab the special Flex Ticket offer that gives you an extra free night of scares. You may want to hurry though, as this offer is only available until June 6.
Im hearing some scuttlebutt about a new gravity group coaster going into Jurassic Park close to the old Triceratops Encounter site, any merit to this? Any activity in the area? I know many years ago there was a smaller wooden coaster in the plans for IoA. With white lightning and mine blower being big hits I do hope this is true.
Also seems like Orlando May be updating JPRA but NOT go for a Jurassic World overlay as seen in Hollywood which I’m also hoping is the case. I believe if they ever get the third park going perhaps we will see some Jurassic world additions there. I kind of like the thought of two varying river rides between Orlando and Hollywood. Fingers crossed.
