I vote for a "My Name Is Earl" simulator where you gotta try to help Earl cross something off his list while keeping Randy and Joy from screwing everything up. Then you could add a restaurant next door called the Crabshack and have Darnell working there (hows it going, Crabman!)

About a year ago, I participated in a supervisor training program in which we were each given two hours to come up with a new ride for either USF or IOA and then pitch it to a panel of upper management types. Of course, it was just "for fun." Nothing that would ever get built. But it was still the coolest training exersize ever.
Anyway, of the dozen or so people in the program, three pitched almost identical "dueling rocket coasters themed to The Fast And The Furious," and all placed them behind BTTF.
Me, I pitched an indoor swinging ship with a Viking theme between Mythos and the Enchanted Oak, and emphasized how affordable it would be to build.
I won, too. (At least, that part of the program.)
I have no real point. Except maybe that the whole "dueling rocket coasters themed to The Fast and the Furious" thing is a bit pedestrian.
I came up with a different idea...F&F Drifting ride....take something like "the whip" where your car is on a track and at different points it whips around, or drifts for a few seconds on every turn...could make for an interesting ride.
After months of not commenting on rumors of the attraction's demise, Universal Orlando on Wednesday confirmed that the 16-year-old simulator ride will be closing to make room for an as-yet-undisclosed new attraction.
Universal spokesman Tom Schroder would not give a date for the ride's last run, though employees at Universal said they have been told it would close Oct. 1.

It looks like it is official! Does anyone have POV? I'm trying to remember if they allow video taping of the attraction. I for one am sad - even though it was rough it felt like a part of my childhood. I remember the countdown clock to opening that was near where the store was now..
