    Default Nintendo teaming up with Universal for Nintendo Theme Park Attractions

    So this became a thing
    Another source

    Since this is official. What kind of attractions do you want to see? A rainbow ride coaster would be cool!

    What about a rainbow road imitation that makes you feel like you're going to fall off. Alternatively, make it as 4D theater ride.

    "Nintendo teaming up with Universal for Nintendo theme parks"

    Wouldn't "theme park attractions" be more accurate, or did it run into the character limit for thread titles?

    It could have been just an oversight. :<

    Since Splatoon has been a hot topic, what if they made a pseudo-competition to spray "paint like substance" everywhere.

    You assume it's gonna be in California. You know there's a Universal Studios in Florida too, right?

    This...is...WONDERFUL!!!!!

    First we get the announcement of Disney Land doing a Star Wars park and now this. I'm just speechless. Hopefully the Nintendo stuff will be at the original Universal Studios in California, instead of that stupid Universal Orlando. If this ends up on the other side of the country, I would be upset to no end.

Along their way towards the Tenno League and becoming a Pokémon Master they'll encounter new Pokémon, new enemies, such as the evil Team Planetary, and, of course, a certain trio of Team Rocket members, with friends new and old.

    I was anticipating this team-up. Of course, I was expecting a whole new theme park somewhere in the Miami area. Universal is my ideal studio to distribute live-action Pokemon movies if Nintendo can form a unit to produce movie versions of their games, adding Pokemon attractions to Universal's theme parks would also be a nice bonus.

    I've been waiting for this ever since Disney acquired Marvel. Nintendo has finally heard my prayers.

    Okay, no, stop, no one said anything about this. Not the topic.

    between this, amiibo, and those rumors of TV/movie adaptations, it seems like Nintendo, like Marvel, has figured out that their value is in their I.P.s as opposed to merely the medium that those I.P.s inhabit

    is there a notable difference

    I mean, for me, Orlando is closer than Hollywood (and in a few months, it'll be way, way closer)

    or would they not do it at both?

    They would not necessarily do it at both to start. They could but it wouldn't be a given.

    Yeah, it's likely that it's gonna be both later on. However, seeing as the announcement came from Universal Studios Orlando, signs point to Florida getting it first.

    Considering how close I am to the California border, it is a bit strange how I've never been to Universal Studios, especially considering how many times I've been to Disney Land and Knottsberries in my life. Heck, my family even has plans to drive out to Disney Land in just under two months.

    I guess I'd like to visit some time, and this may just very well be the final nudge to make me go.

    Was it really? That sucks. I would assume it would be like their Harry Potter park, which is exclusively at Orlando, and as far as I know, has no plans of coming to California. I've always been so annoyed that California has the original Disney Land and Universal Studios, and yet Florida gets the bigger, better versions. It's not right.

    I am 90% sure there is a Harry Potter thing at Universal California. It just came after the one at Universal Florida did, though it may have overwritten the Jaws thing.

    Besides, Florida has to have SOMETHING good right? How are old people supposed to get their grandchildren to visit? I'm pretty sure people don't visit for the alligators.

    Makes sense, really. More of the country's population lives east of the Mississippi. Florida is closer to them, relatively speaking.

    Though iirc, I believe Flordia is mostly composed of senior citizens. Florida is retirement central. Must be the warm weather.

    Well no, I didn't say they were doing neat things at Florida theme parks for the good of the state's population.

    I just looked it up, and they are currently constructing the Harry Potter Park at the California one, it's planned to open in 2016. That's news to me. I had never heard of it there.

    Oh I know it makes sense, Florida is arguably a bigger vacation destination as well. It still annoys me though.

    Something to remember is that this is Universal, who is known for doing simulations and other more show-like attractions as opposed to roller coasters and other typical theme park attractions. Personally, I think that's better. It's always seemed kind of silly to me to have a themed roller coaster, when the theme doesn't affect the way the roller coaster itself feels.
