I’m gonna poke holes in some of your OP, but you have some good points…
Marvel Island is built to be “timeless” in the Adam Kubert style of being “inside” a 90’s comic. That’s why all the shops are named “Arcade” / “Store” and so much more… Spider-Man is still one of the best theme park rides around. (It’s needs a 4K update / new projections)
Until they finally make this JW as they’ve done out in Hollywood. I don’t know when they’ll do it, but it’s in the works. (rumored, but often by reliable vloggers)
This is the biggest “hot take” you have!! I’ve had them all and at best they are “OK”… Mythos is very overrated… (my unpopular opinion!! )
Without Poseidon’s Fury, Lost Continent is just something to walk past on the way to Hogsmeade. It and the Sindbad theatre are just sitting there empty now…
So we agree on that at least!!
They need a kids area in each park. They do constant upkeep on all the Seuss rides. CitH had every scene 100% working this week - I even saw something “new to me”
What do they need to change? It’s a classic. Plus, at Grinchmas it’s sooo beautiful with all the lights & garlands
Until 2020 USF hadn’t had anything new in a decades. It had to get updated… Bourne was added, then VCON / Minion Shops and now DreamWorks Destination is coming. After those I don’t expect you’ll see anything new from USF for a very long time.
This I agree… Toon Lagoon just needs new IP. You don’t even need to change the rides, just make it newer cartoons. OR…make it Bikini Bottom and go 100% SpongeBob… (that’s another thread to be had though!)
My own Unpopular Opinions…
Despicable Me isn’t as good without 3-D
Knock down Jimmy Fallon & the Rockefeller center for anything else
The Simpsons Ride is actually good!
Incredible Hulk is one of the worst coasters I’ve ever been on…
Fast & Furious isn’t as bad as everyone says…as long as you can board via SR or UXP to skip right to boarding the ride
Hogsmeade, as a land, is “meh” with the exception of Hogwarts. Once you’ve seen Diagon Alley it’s hard to see this…
The Tri-Wizard Spirit Rally is boring
I do want all of JP to be updated to JW
Volcano Bay is the best park of the three and the best waterpark in Orlando
