The world's best theme park dark ride just got better

For those who have never been on the world’s best dark ride, Forbidden Journey literally turns the traditional dark ride experience on its head by placing riders on the end of a unique robotic arm as they travel past domed projection screens and animatronic characters.

For those who have visited Universal’s Islands of Adventure, the West Coast version of Forbidden Journey adds 3-D imagery to the domed screen segments that were only 2-D when the ride debuted in 2010 at the Florida theme park.

Tower of Terror to get superhero makeover at Disney California Adventure Park

Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, an elevator-drop ride based on the old “Twilight Zone” television show, will close for good in January to be remade as an attraction based on Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” superheros.

Walt Disney Co. bought Marvel Entertainment Inc. in 2009 for $4 billion but had yet to inject many of the Marvel characters into the Anaheim theme parks. The ride will reopen next summer.

East San Fernando Valley Transit Plans for Transit-Oriented Future

One of those projects, the $1.3-billion East San Fernando Valley Transit Corridor, is expected to open in 2027.

In preparation for a light rail or bus rapid transit line down Van Nuys Boulevard, the City of Los Angeles is now planning for future development along the approximately nine-mile corridor.

Los Angeles' 'Subway to the Sea' is less about play and more about work

When the so-called subway to the sea began running between downtown Los Angeles and Santa Monica this year, it was greeted with a kind of revelry and attention usually reserved for only the hottest celebrity-studded film screenings.

Now, nearly two months later, the sheen has mostly worn off, replaced by workaday concerns of daily commuters, who most often have their heads deeply bowed to their phones as the train lurches along Exposition Boulevard.

It is neither a subway – the train is in fact elevated more often than it is underground – nor does it go all the way to sea. But as a passenger travels west from downtown to Santa Monica, a ride along the Expo Line offers a small portrait of this sprawling city.

Universal Studios Hollywood Park Update and Annual Pass Changes
http://micechat.com/132357-universal...-pass-changes/

Below, in the Backlot, we find construction on an unannounced new attraction next to Transformers.


What is now being called Soundstage 29 on the studio tour is coming along.


Meanwhile, at Falls Lake, construction for the boat set (on an undisclosed film project) continues. This thing is huge.

Will Disney’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ ride anchor a Marvel themed land?

The rumor was reported by Screamscape (“shocking”) in March, WDW News Today (“far fetched”) in April, MiceChat (“wild”) in May and then was picked up by numerous news outlets.

RUMORS CONFIRMED?: Guardians of the Galaxy To Replace Tower Of Terror, Captain America Launch Coaster Coming

MARVEL Studios would encompass the last true expansion pad for the park, situated between Hollywood Land and A Bug’s Land. The area would be a natural extension of Hollywood Land, being a “working movie studio”. On the lot, guests could find a series on indoor and outdoor meet and greet experiences, as well as plenty of shopping and dining. One completely new attraction would greet guests according to current rumblings: a launch coaster featuring Captain America, showcasing elaborate show scenes between coaster ride portions. The other attraction would be near one of the two entrances to the new land: a Guardians of the Galaxy-themed overlay of the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.

Delta to Relocate, Upgrade Operations at Los Angeles International Airport Through $1.9B Plan

Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) is moving forward with the first steps toward a $1.9 billion plan to modernize, upgrade and connect Terminals 2 and 3 at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) over the next seven years. Los Angeles World Airports' (LAWA) Board of Airport Commissioners approved a terminal facilities lease and license agreement earlier today. The future project, which will also provide a secure connector to the north side of the Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT), enables Delta to build a premier space for its LAX operations alongside its airline partners.

The relocation will expand Delta's gates at LAX commensurate with the airline's growth there. Since 2009, Delta has more than doubled its number of seats and grown from 70 daily departures to more than 175.

By relocating from Terminals 5 and 6 to the complex at Terminals 2 and 3, Delta will operate alongside many of its airline partners, including Aeromexico, Virgin Atlantic, and Virgin Australia. Later, a secure connection to TBIT will enable seamless access to additional partners, including Air France-KLM, Alitalia, China Eastern, and China Southern.

The project also supports LAWA's broader efforts to enable a more balanced and efficient airport for customers and airlines; provide a smooth connection to LAWA's planned Landside Access Modernization Project, once completed; and upgrade and modernize LAX before the city's bid for the 2024 Summer Olympic Games.
