After the recent announcement of the fourth theme park in Orlando, Universal Orlando files patents for two new tower rides. Some blogs have wondered if this could be Universal’s version of Disney’s Hollywood Tower of Terror. Check out the plans below.

Attraction One: Interactive Tower

As you can see from the first patent, appears to be an interactive tower ride that contains four towers with ride vehicles allowing multiple passengers. It appears from the patent, although this needs to be confirmed, that passengers might have some control over the motion and media of the vehicles. There could also be some gaming components included such as VR or projection or special effects. The ride seems to contain shooting targets and appears to have a feature that keeps passengers’ scores, similar to that of Disney’s Hollywood Toy Story Mania or Universal’s Men in Black ride. Since this patent has yet to be confirmed by Universal, we can only speculate that this ride might appear in the rumoured Nintendo-themed Land which is speculated to appear at Universal Orlando’s Epic Universe theme park!

Attraction Two: Rotating lift with stacked rooms attraction

The second patent filed appears to be an attraction which contains multiple rooms stacked on top of each other, with vehicles able to travel in and out of rooms as well as rotate, twist and ascend and descend the tower. Opening up the possibility of a variety of experiences for guests.

We remain unsure regarding the final plans of this attraction, some blogs question if this ride is similar to Disney’s Hollywood Tower of Terror attraction due to the use of lifts and the possibility of drops, twists and turns. All we know so far is that it appears as though Universal Orlando files patents for two new tower rides, however, this has yet to be confirmed by Universal!
