How Much Longer For Boo Blasters On Boo Hill?

I highly doubt Universal will EVER give up their Marvel properties, no matter how big the check is. WDW cannot use any of the properties that Universal uses. Those properties are Spider-man, Avengers, X-Men and Fantastic Four, and the Marvel name (which can't be used in any attraction name, WDW or Disneyland). Disney is free to use any other Marvel properties, such as Guardians of the Galaxy, which I believe they are installing at one of the WDW parks. 

Losing Marvel Super Hero Island at Islands of Adventure would be a huge blow for Universal Orlando, especially since Spider-man is probably one of Universal greatest rides and would make the transition to Toon Lagoon awkward. Unless they have an IP as strong as Marvel to fill it with (Lord of the Rings??), I think Universal will hold that contract very close to them for a long time.

The former Universe of Energy/Ellen's Energy Adventure building at Epcot is in the middle of a multi year refurb to the Guardians of the Galaxy indoor coaster. The Tower of Terror in DL was changed over to the Guardians a couple years ago and the orig FL one was almost given the same treatment until wider minds prevailed.  There has been talk of turning the former Wonders of Life building into Wakanda and inserting a Black Panther attraction where Body Wars used to be.

Just for posterity. Enchanted Voyage - 1972 until 1983.  Operated 12 seasons. Smurfs Enchanted Voyage - 1984 until 1991.  Operated 8 seasons. Phantom Theater - 1992 until 2002.  Operate

I always thought if they ever brought back Phantom Theater that they could hire Mark Hamil to do the voices.  

They aren’t going to let you theme a ride to something so popular for free. It isn’t going to happen. The more popular it is, the more it costs.

Yeah, I am looking forward to the new Marvel stuff they use at WDW -- they just can't use the properties Universal uses or the Marvel name. DL can use those properties, just not the Marvel name. I don't think Universal will ever give those properties up for the reasons in my original post.

It was a huge shame when they put the TVs in. It ruins the atmosphere now.

You know, if they turn it back to the Phantom Theater, the TVs could showcase acts different that you'll see during the ride. Or they could do something similar to some of the changing portraits from the Haunted Mansion. Just a thought. :)

That is a great idea, hopefully this will happen some time in the 2020's. But I honestly think we are going to be stuck with Boo Blasters for at least a couple more years.

If only Kings Island was good or experienced at making last minute surprises/additions.

International Street, the beir stein, Feshaus, glockenspeil, Royal Fountain and Chef's Plate have entered the chat and are not happy.
