Tolkien-inspired theme park in the works?

Rumor: Universal and Tolkien Estate Planning Middle-earth Theme Park

Quote:
Warner Bros., which already has a long relationship with the Tolkiens thanks to the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit films (if not always a happy one), talked up the success of Universal Studios’ The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, describing how faithfully the park translated J.K. Rowling’s vision. The Tolkiens reportedly spoke with Rowling herself, and apparently liked what they heard. Universal then got in contact with the Tolkiens to discuss their ideas.

It’s important to keep in mind that this story is just rumor at this point, as nothing has been confirmed by Universal, Warner Bros. or the Tolkien estate. Even if it is true, it sounds like the project is just in the planning stages, meaning it’ll be several years yet before we’re able to set foot in Universal’s Middle-earth park. At this point, we don’t even know where the new attraction would go. But it makes sense that Universal would be looking into a Tolkien park, given both the runaway success of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and the enduring popularity of Warner Bros.’ Lord of the Rings / Hobbit movies.
If true, this is still in the very early stages of development, but it could be a lot of fun.

I think what people really want to know is will there be beer and meat on the bone on the Mines of Moria ride and will they be singing hobbit drinking songs in It's a Shire World After All?
