In the future, I don't think rides will be themed. I think they will be added to the theme.

I doubt we'll see themed rides become the major theme in upcomin years, but depending on how well received TR:TR is. we may see an increase in teh number, but the extra cost will also likely mean fewer new rides, not to mention the extra work needed to develop, design, and put together the theming.
Disney, of course, has done this for decades, and Universal had a huge hit with IOA and the heavily themed rides there, so it wouldn't be unique, but if people come from all around and increase PKI's attendance significantly, I'm sure we will see smaller parks seriously consider allocating more money for theming when deciding on new rides.
For now, though, I'd say we're likely to continue to see moderately themed rides just because of the heavy cost and the low level of the economy.
