There has been a lot of speculation that Universal Orlando’s Dragon Challenge is headed for closure, Universal’s new patent request refreshes that speculation.
“A pair of patents from Universal Orlando Resort’s sister entity, Universal City Studios, may hint at what’s next for the theme park’s Harry Potter attractions.
The two patents, dubbed “vehicle transportation room system and method” and “system and method for a moving puzzle theater,” both show technologies that could be used to bring more elements of the Harry Potter world to life.”
One of the patents looks an awful lot to me like traveling by floo network, and another with the turntable of screens, or in this case rooms, looks like Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey.
If this is the kind of stuff they want to do with that land, bye bye Dragon Challenge! *waves*
