Stupid Universal Studios

As someone who lives in Orlando, this pisses me off. And I'm not the only one.

"Universal Studios is opening up a....Harry Potter theme park in Florida complete with the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the Forbidden Forest and Hogsmeade village.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, will open in late 2009 in Orlando, officials said Thursday..."

Couldn't they open a theme park not orientated to fat kids, losers and virgins? What next...a Dungeons and Dragons theme park. No adult likes Hary Potter. Well no mature adult with half a brain likes Harry Potter. Seriously. It's a fad theme park. What will do in 10 years when nobodys gives a fuck about harry potter?

Half the kids that read the book have never even seen sunlight so they can't go or they have no friends to go with them, because fictional characters don't count.

Will were at why don't we build a 24 theme park!
or a Spider-Man theme park?

Because those are what's "in" right now. And it would be stupid to do so. So why waste OUR tax money and all this shit to build a new theme park dedicated to the nerds of America?

Build a Harry Potter ride at IOA where all that stupid wizard shit is. Not dedicate all that land towards it. And seriously, nobody would go to this park. The religous right hate Harry Potter because of his "magic" and the left don't like Harry Potter for the fact that's it's nonsensical immature writing for kids. People will go to this park once and then go "eh fuck let's go home" never to return cause who would pay $50 for this bullshit.

Then Universal wonders why it can't keep up with Disney. Becuase there making stupid decisons like this bullshit.

I hope it's a trap to find anyone who likes that stupid book and keep them locked up in the theme park and never let them out. Cause that is the only good that'll come out of this theme park....

Screw you, your mother, your father, your father's mother, and your mother's father's father who commits incest with your mother's father's mother to create hermaphrodite kids children called sylpriest.

Just kidding.

Harry Potter is the best creation ever.

I'm a mature adult with more brains than you have, and I love Harry Potter.

Some random ponts...

Disney bid on the Potter franchise but lost. Personally, I'm glad they lost it. Disney put out Narnia in response to Lord Of The Rings and it was a little cheap looking in comparison.

Potter is beyond fad at this point. Besides, theme parks are always borrowing stories to make them real for their customers.

Islands Of Adventures is a good park with good design and good story. Given the caliber of other attractions and incredible theming, I have some faith Universal will get Potterland right.

Universal did build a Spiderman theme park of sorts in its superhero district... I forget what they called it but you get my drift. Spiderman (The Ride) was a lot of fun and unlike anything I'd ridden at other parks. Good show!
