    Yukendoit was on-hand for Behind The Thrills, and will be there for the Despicable Me press event.

    I like that guy. He really gets excited about his reporting. Plus, he & Quinnmac are two of our few links to Japan. :thumbsup:

    Yukendoit is really cool. Good time to upgrade that camera for stuff like the night time shows when you got dat press pass.

    They did a nice job on that mini land. Good utilization of a fairly small space.

    Cost of Minion Park was just slightly over $9 Million USD.

    Question on the Minion additions for anyone who would know... did they retrofit the ride film for the dome IMAX screen, or did they tear out the old Back to the Future ride system for the more traditional "moving theater" used in Hollywood/Orlando? The ads make it look like it uses the same legacy BTTF/Simpsons ride system with the film modified to the larger screen...

    They kept BTTF ride vehicle, I think they changed the screen but I don't know yet.

    More Jump Summer details. JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is getting a 4d ride while a brand new potentially original 4D film involving the World Martial Arts Championship for Dragon Ball. One Piece Spectacular will remain the same as it has super super next level near perfect guest satisfaction surveys. Gintama will also get some live show it seems if I'm translating right.

    They also had Minions take over Universal Port Hotel.
