pumpkinbot343 Posted December 20, 2022 Share Posted December 20, 2022 (edited) This is the Universal park where all the events take place. Overall This ditches the outdated and kinda irrelevant studio theme that only really works on Hollywood. Rather it’s akin to Islands of Adventure. Look at the very Universal logo itself. Why not have it themed as a trip through the world itself? Alternatively, the theme could that be of time itself, with Doc Brown serving as the park’s mascot. Universal’s Harbor of Adventure The entry plaza. It kind of ties all the lands together aesthetically. Characters representing each land (but NOT from those lands itself) are present. • One idea for presentation; is that it starts off mundane and low key; but the design grows more grand and fantastic as you go on; eventually leading to… • The world tree. Inspired by Yggdrasil; it’s not really a real tree, but a big ol mess representing the lands you are about to go to. • The Enchanted Oak Tavern would be present but with a different interior as it’s not in an medieval setting. Jurassic Park Overall the land is pretty identical to Orlando’s; however the scenery (or specifically the greenery) would be emphasized and the land may be longer if Pteranodon Flyers is a ride here (so that the ride isn’t so short). • Jurassic Park River Adventure is a hybrid of Orlando (overall ride design; second floor of building) and Hollywood (Falling Jeep, Canopy and entrance, T-Rex at roof). • Camp Jurassic and Discovery Center would remain identical to Orlando. • Japan’s version of Jurassic Outfitters has an animatronic raptor; this park steals that. • Dino Encounter features a variety of Dinos like Raptors and Triceratops, each week or day focusing on a different set. • The restaurant for this is themed to the center of the earth itself. Egypt Timey Wimey Storyline for the area is that a strange time paradox caused by a meteor caused the various ages of Egypt from various points in time to clash. So you’ll see explorers from the 1930s speaking with royals from the Old Kingdoms while decrepit tombs and grand palaces co-exist. In actuality this is just an excuse to not be specific with what the land should look like. • For all the attractions in this land, the various storylines and settings depend on which point of time the attractions are set in. • The water ride first takes a trip on the Nile River then descends into a drop. Either it transports guests into a world of mysticism or it takes them back into the Kingdom; a historical tour. • Either a haunted house or a Poseidon’s Fury style walk though; the storyline follows: hh1 is set in a museum ransacked with the army of the dead, hh2 is set in the Oasis of Ahm Shere where the Scorpion King and Anubis’s army waits, and hh3 takes guests into the Egyptian Underworld itself. • Revenge of the Mummy opened after 2004 in this; and is an original take that doesn’t repeat scenes from the Florida and Hollywood versions. Maybe it’s in a museum, maybe a tomb. • The restaurant for this is based in the Egyptian Palace itself. Grand architecture with high ceilings, giant statues lining the walls, exquisite food. • An actual museum of sorts would be present here. Either it showcases exotic animals associated with Egypt, actual Egyptian artifacts or props from the Mummy and Scorpion King movies. • Stage show either follows an historical storyline like Rome’s conquering of Egypt or a fantastical one like the stories of Sekhmet and Set. Universal Horror or the Old World Overall land takes you back into the worlds of DRACULA, FRANKENSTEIN, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA & THE WOLFMAN. 19th century, villages and dark streets. • Castle Dracula is an land in of itself; with either a haunted house or Poseidon’s Fury walkthrough exploring the corridors of the Count’s home and a water ride underneath taking guests down the murky depths as a homage to the defunct Wildwood attraction. • Wolfman Woods is a roller coaster down an forest where it simulates you either being chased by a werewolf or as a werewolf yourself prowling the countryside. • The Musical Show is set in an opera house and houses either a musical adaptaing THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA or FRANKENSTEIN. Instead of a traditional theme park stage show which is normally a 30 minute show done repeatedly, this one has 30 minutes acts throughout the day; eventually leading to an ending, then it repeats itself until the show really ends. • The restaurant is themed on a Classic Monster not showcased in the other attractions (except the Mummy). Or it’s an original place that still is appropriate for the gothic mood for the rest of the event. Amity Village Overall land and JAWS is identical to the Orlando and Osaka versions. • Amity Village Restaurant is the same as Osaka’s • Instead of carnival games though, we get carnival rides here homaging either lesser known or hard to translate IPs like the Blues Brothers. • A classic dark ride haunt is themed to Chucky of the Child’s Play series. Brad Dourif reprises his role. New York Overall land is not a replication of New York like the other parks. Here New York is a war zone with super villains rioting and super heroes fighting and protecting. The vibe wouldn’t be depressing but the architecture would still be gnarled, smashed, and broken. • The Amazing Adventures of Apider-Man is identical to the IOA version. • Xavier Institute is either a 3-D Movie like Terminator or an actual ride (probably a Top Spinner). Storyline is either the Danger Room has gone berserk, a Sentinel is on a rampage, or Magneto crashes the party. • Fantastic Four would be set in the Baxter Building and features a Reed experiment gone wrong. • Either King Kong Encounter or Kongfrontation is recreated exactly as they were from the original parks they came from. • Same thing with Safari Outfitters with Kong prop. And Finnegan’s. • Of course this would be the place of a Marvel comic shop. • The Big Apple eatery is either a homage to New York or is set in a LITERAL big apple caused by super powered hijinks. May involve giant insects. Hill Valley Timey Wimey Once again, the storyline is that weird time shenanigans happened. In actuality, this is to avert the problem with time; so that it stays relevant. Characters like Medieval Knights, Samurai, 80s teenagers coexist and interact. Overall land however is faithful to the version of Hill Valley from 2015. • Back to the Future the Rollercoaster uses actual sets for the coaster sequences. • E.T. Adventure is set as a spaceship mission and is more technically impressive than the other ones. • 3-D Movie may feature JAWS or another film relevant to the lore of BTTF. • Cafe 80s recreates the movie’s restaurant but with a bigger arcade and actual waiters (using the movie’s digital ones would be both creepy and impractical).
