Interesting - I like the idea of the SeaWorld one, as long as it's not too much like Air. ohmy.gif
B&M hyper for Busch? Yep, I'll go with that, although it would be kinda cool if they bought something that wasn't already at the other Busch Gardens. Hopefully it will have, if it goes ahead, some sort of unique-ish twist to it.
Of course, a proper hyper B&M at Busch would render a 'junior' B&M hyper at Universal somewhat pointless, don't ya think? And besides, isn't 'junior hypercoaster' a contradiction in terms anyway? huh.gif

I dunno, as much as I admire B&M coasters, some of them are already starting to become a bit ... y'know? ...samey? And I've only been on 13. It'd be nice to see some original new designs and layouts from 'em.
Whatever, '09 looks fairly exciting! Sod Harry bleedin' Potter...

The Hogwarts / Forbidden Forest area doesn't look that big. They've cleared the land for it, which involved taking down the electric fences and jungles of Jurassic Park and making the parks best area look naff. So hopefully that'll be sorted but knowing Universal probably not.

A flick of the wand then and things should be moving forwards by now. Has anyone got any further info on the wizardry process going on out there?

Some movement apparent according to latest updates - Brick work visible, the Enchanted Oak is in the midst of being demolished and HP signs are showing around the fences of the construction area! OK, still a mystery then now we've got that monumental info?!

This promises to be THE major attraction in Orlando in 2009.

Disney have nothing planned unless I'm missing something really obvious *checks WDI conceptual artwork posters on wall*...nope nothing at all.

I dissagree I think Mantis is a much better investment (Although I would- Liking Flying Rollercoasters)

I'll do a 'Rachel' from BB on this one and fence sit. Gotta say my interest is divided equally between the 2 camps. Whilst rollercoasters top my list where excitement is concerned, exquisite theming and imagination follow closely behind!

what do u mean checks WDI conceptual artwork posters on wall jeez, youd have to have a very large room for all the conceptual drawings that have been created for any future attraction, not to mention the old art that gets dug up every now and then from the archives.

As of now, Beastly Kingdom may come back onto the drawing plans for Animal Kingdom, but not as how it was planned out before. this one will be more character based. im a little happy and sad. glad that it finally may get put back into the park, sad that i guess wont be as dark/none character based, as to what was originally planned.

I have booked Orlando for next year so I have been keeping a close eye on things, mainly Manta's progression, the latest pictures show some real progression now. I also seen some news on Screamscape that Seaworld were doing a fast-track wristband for 30 dollars for unlimited rides and premium choice for seats at the shows, if thats true I would definately take them up on that especially if Manta is up and running and attracking a very large que.

It depends on when you visit really - I usually go in May and the parks are dead.
