As it is now, WWoHP here at IOA is a tad boring as it is a lot of facades and shops with 2 rides re-purposed and a nice new dark ride. Gutting the other attractions that were already there from IOA's WWoHP would be a bit underwhelming, no?



It might be boring but it sure is successful in bringing in the customers.

The Simpsons didn't have as much success or cultural impact as Harry Potter? Are you kidding?


I didn't mean it that way. They already have a ride in a different area of the park (and there really inst any room to make a full Simpsons "land" in that area). Thats why I ruled it out, not that it didn't have an impact.

the article stated that Waterworld show is based on a 1990s movie and thus should be replaced, but at Universal Studios Singapore, which just opened this year, there is still the Waterworld show. A bit ironic.

^Waterworld's been a crowd pleaser year in and year out. I've honestly never seen that show have anything resembling an empty theater come showtime.
Ignore the screaming in the woods...

Everything is fine.

What I don't understand is why can't they leave USH as a studio and then find another suitable location for a major Uni Park like Island of Adventure in another location without as many restrictions, I don't see where it's required the park be a second gate.

Just like legoland put a park in Carlsbad who would of thought of a park going in Carlsbad, but it worked.
Heck they could build the largest Island of Adventure on the planet right here in Riverside county all the open dead space this place has around it, it's in between LA and San Diego the population is here and it would give people another option of having to drive down to Diego or dealing with LA/ orange county traffic. With all the open space here they could build a Happy Potter city not just a land lol

I don't know there the pros I'm not

^^It's one of the worst movies ever to most. I find it "meh" at best. The show, however, takes all of the remotely decent aspects of the movie and amps them up to the point where they really work.

An entire theme park dedicated to cheerful pottery makers sounds absolutely dreadful!

Universal Studios Hollywood Grinchmas 2010 Media Event

Postby wrs28330 » Thu Dec 09, 2010 6:11 pm

Theme Park Review was once again invited to the Media day for the ever-growing Grinchmas event at Universal Studios Hollywood.

The event runs December 11th, 12th, and daily from December 18th thru January 2nd. Grinchmas will feature nightly tree-lighting ceremonies, celebrity readings of "Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas!" and encounters with Whoville characters and fresh snow.

In addition to visiting the Whoville set on the Studio Tram tour, Guests will also pay a special visit to the Grinch's Lair, where they will find themselves on a quest to help the Grinch and Max the Dog return the stolen gifts to Whoville.

Many people will be surprised to learn that the expanded Grinchmas area now resides in the entire blue print of the old western stunt show arena.
