Maybe it's the brittish in me but why would they want a ln NBA themed thing nobody likes netball and the one at universal was just terrible so they ripped it down! Considering the advances in VR and computing and the surge in interest of retro gaming surely just a small amount of investment could have got this attraction back in the game

Some of the NBA teams are worth over 2 Billion, its a huge business...why would Disney not want a piece of that?

The one at Universal was a themed restaurant with a shop attached to it, this one at Disney sounds amazing and can't wait to go.

I agree with today's day and age in computing they could make it amazing again. Its not my cup of tea but my kids and husband loved it. I did think the pirates thing was funny tho and the boats. I dont think any of my family will enjoy the NBA thing. It might well be worth millions but nothing to do with Disney. Still hoping its there in October but not looking likely

Seeing that less than 2% of the tourist are British, I doubt they care whether or not you like netball.. Basketball here is a huge deal.

Give me the NBA over the majority sports in this country every time. It's absolutely the most exciting sport there is (IMO). I wish people would give it a chance instead of writing it off as some dumb, loud American thing.

It is a shame that Disney Quest wasn't better looked after, I am a totally eighties vid kid and have been playing Pinball Machines since I could reach the flippers and see the playfield but when we went last August half of the games were faulty or so badly set up they were unplayable. I am sure whatever Disney do with it will be good.
