Yes, I hate this!! It has always been one of mine, and my husband's favorite rides at the park. I heard it's because they are expanding Harry Potter. I do love HP, but I also love this ride! It was one of their originals and is a shame they are getting rid of it.

I don't see how HP would effect Jaws, because HP is in Islands of Adventure and Jaws in in Universal Studios.
Sure, they are right next to each other, but I don't think they are close enough for that kind of expansion.

I heard Jaws could be replaced with something Transformers related, and HP is getting expanded through the Mythology area (the "world" next to HP's)

The Lost Continent would be better for the HP area. Since they made Dueling Dragons (Roller coaster) a part of HP, there isn't much left besides the two shows, Sinbad and Poseidon's Furry and the Mythos Restaurant.
