If Harry Potter deserves a theme park and Lord of the Rings, Dune, and the works of H.G. Wells do not, then fuck me side-saddle.

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!

I do not understand your alien country boondocks lingo, please elaborate







And if I had to pick a book to be turned into a theme park, it would be Starship Troopers. Someone would just have to figure out how to breed the giant bugs...

I think when the last Potter book and the last movie are all done with, people will move on from it. For every one person that likes it there are 3 more who hate it. I'm just pissed taxes in orlando are going for this park.

Islands of Adventure has a wizard and magic section. Alot of the rides there aren't popular and sectioned off. Why not just add a Harry Potter ride. Makes more sense then building a whole park to it.

And the spiderman "theme park" has the incredible hulk roller coaster, storm's wind tunnel, and Dr. Doom's Fear fall drop. It's the superhero section. I don't mind if they made a Harrp Potter section. Just don't waste all that time and money and land on one book.

I'm sure there are time tested things you can theme this new park around. Hell even a Star Wars theme park makes more sense.
