    Check out all that is going on at Universal Orlando Resort. From the new Minion Villains Con attraction coming in 2023 and a new Minions cafe to the new Universal Escape rooms coming to Citywalk.
    We also look at the new Tribute Store with Jaws, ET and Back to the Future and the beautiful new paint job on the Caro-Seuss-el at Islands of Adventure. We cover it all in this video.

    Universal just opened what might be their best Tribute Store yet. The new Universal Studios Monsters Tribute Store brings Frankenstein, Mummy, Dracula and the Werewolf all together for an amazing themed store experience.


  4. Pokemon is/was definitely for Orlando and planned for Kidzone, while Zelda I believe is for IOA (either where Simbad was, possibly into where Poseidon is). You can match the building shapes to those around Kidzone and in relation to Woody Woodpecker's Nuthouse Coaster (the Vekoma Roller Skater). Not sure if this is happening now as things keep changing because of Epic Universe and the pandemic so priorities might change.

    Regarding Japan, the announcement was vague and I believe only mentioned a partnership and new experiences in the short term - so I guess things like shows, overlays of existing attractions etc. Knowing how Universal work though it wouldn't surprise me to see these plans adapted for Japan in the medium to long term though.

    Are you sure that these plans are meant for Universal Orlando? The press conference I read from Universal states that these lands are going to Universal Japan.

  7. From @alicastella on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AliciaStella/status/1453090884795486211

    A new project is listed as P235 with permits for "Interior Demolition."

  8. The former Blue Man Group theater is being used for Grinchmas this year (included in paid admission to Islands of Adventure). Fear Factor Live's closure is confirmed by the park: https://www.mynews13.com/fl/orlando/attractions/2021/10/19/universal-to-permanently-close-fear-factor-live

  9. Shrek 4D's closure was confirmed by the park, announced for January 10th, 2022. Replacement is said to be a walkthrough with interactive elements, which may be temporary attraction. The Mummy is closed Jan 7th through mid-Summer to get a refurbishment. No word on any enhancements or changes yet.

    The Fear Factor Live show has not returned to the park, and once HHN is over on October 31st, there is a strong rumor that the building will be torn down for a VR attraction as an expansion to Diagon Alley. This was originally intended to go to Epic Universe, but there have been no confirmations yet.
