Vivendi Universal has announced plans to build a new theme park in Germany, planned to be the second largest in Europe behind Disneyland Paris. The company says more than 27 million people live within two hours from the location.

Overall the park looks very cool and it's close enough to me too. I hope this park will go trough all the legal stuff or wont suffer alot of delays. *** This post was edited by olov on 2/28/2002. ***
I don't see a JAWS lagoon, nor do I see any other staples like Earthquake or BTTF. Either this park is completely redesigned (a new look to existing rides), or it's completely new from all aspects.
I do agree that the King Kong ride looks mighty cool. That mock-Empire State building must be awful tall though.
Themepark looks good, although a little worried about where geographically the park is located in Germany, I mean close to it's rivals like WB Movieworld/Heide Park/Europa Park?
let em build it
quote from the text (if you had read it you woult'nt asked your question)
"It's an ideal location," Hampe said. "There are 27 million people within two hours drive of it, neither Paris nor London can match that."
its all about POSSIBLE visitor numbers.
Are you kidding? The US is very nearly saturated with theme and amusement parks. There aren't any more dollars to go around here.

First: There was no announcement by Universal (only plans!), the Universal Studios Germany Development GmbH is waiting for a decision about the project (the local community have to give their agreement) - Their voting will be in mid march.
Second: The artwork (link above) had been created by Landmark during 2000. It's an old plan and Landmark (USA) is out of project! A newer, total different "masterplan" was published in a local newspaper last weekend - Seems to be more similar to IOA than the Studios!
