    Judging from the blueprints, a spinning tea cups ride. Presumably from Zamperla.

    With this project indefinitely postponed I believe it would be wise for Universal to take a step back and revise the whole project. I know that the idea of getting another theme park is nice, but is it worth it in the long run? The trend in the travel industry is to not get more visitors, but visitors that spend more. Just look at the Disney-parks; theme park attendance has decreased these last years, but revenue has gone up. And if it's something this pandemic has taught us, it's that those businesses relying on a large number of guests are more vulnerable than those having a much more effective organization getting more money per guest. Fewer guests means fewer employees needed.

    IMO I believe Universal should just move some of the concepts into the existing parks. In Universal Studios park the KidZone is way overdue and ready for a change. Also there's a big chunk of backstage land between The Simpsons ride and MiB. Also speaking of the Simpsons; how attractive is it for Universal to keep paying Disney for that brand?

    Over at Islands of Adventure there has been rumors for a long time about the future of Toon Lagoon. How great wouldn't this spot be for the Train your Dragon-area? They could even keep the rafts and re-theme it. And again you have a Disney-brand right next to it, probably also seeing an uncertain future.

    These are all just thoughts, but it will be interesting to see how the Epic Universe will go on in the future. Is there really a need for a whole new theme park, infrastructure and all? Or is it perhaps enough for Universal to just update the existing parks and hike up the price?
