Universal Building a "Lord of the Rings" Theme Park?

Universal Building a "Lord of the Rings" Theme Park?Submit Comment
Universal Studios recently opened the Wizard World of Harry Potter and is now considering a theme park inspired by the "Lord of the Rings" franchise. According to a user on MiceChat, the company sent out the following email:

"Imagine if you will a world unlike any you've ever visited before: it's Middle Earth, the ancient and beautiful land forged by J.R.R. Tolkien as the backdrop for his two most well known creations, 'Lord of the Rings' and 'The Hobbit.' Walk as a human among dwarves, elves, orcs and hobbits -- all faithfully recreated and portrayed in the spirit of the original characters as they appeared in both the books and the movies. In this land you'll experience one-of-a-kind rides and attractions that bring to life some of the most memorable experiences of Tolkien's world including Bilbo's hobbit hole, the fortress at Isengard (before it was destroyed) and even the dark world of Mordor -- including the terrifying volcanic Mount Doom."

The idea is to take advantage of the upcoming "Hobbit" films, which Peter Jackson has already agreed to direct. And the fact that Jackson is also responsible for the new King Kong ride, it seems like a no-brainer to get him to also work on the "Lord of the Rings" park.

How about a Waterpark Universal? Imagine an Ent Waterslide based on the Last Walk of the Ents or um not.

Sounds like they are looking at what to do once they loose all the rights to the Marvel rides in a few years...

It'll be called Gibsonville. The 1st hundred people will be given free t-shirts saying "Why don't you smile and blow me!!" and free ballons with drunken mug shots of Mel for the kiddies.

@trailertrash

that very much makes sense about the marvel section obiously having to change because of disney buying marvel. do they keep the framing of the marvel section? or do you think they blow it up and start from scratch?
encoreyourface writes:

m5dmb28 -

They have to keep the Hulk ride if they can that is awesome and i love the 3D Spider-man ride (can't keep that though)but maybe do something along the same lines.

But seeing how they have built that new Harry Potter ride in the image of Hogwarts which looks pretty good, i would hope they start it from scratch.

Come on, couldn't they have just put the theme park on the VHS, or at least the DVD versions of LOTR? I mean, really, how long are they gonna keep milking us? Don't they have enough money? f*cking Tolkien estate, greedy bastards...I bet they're going to come out with an extended theme park the next year that's digitally remastered with never-before-seen deleted rides...
