^True. Now that HHN is over, look for construction to pick up considerably.

My prediction: HRRR will open mid-May and Manta 1st week in June.

^Historically, new rides at Universal open May or June. As for Sea World, I believe Kraken opened in May or June 2000.

I've read that as much as 90 percent of the queue will be changed to fit the Tri-Wizard Tournament theme. As for the skulls, Merlin's book, etc., I'm really not sure what Universal will do with that stuff.

^It's a good bet Ozzy, Manson and Danzig would be fighting over the loot at the garage sale. :devil:

Ozzy - "Shaaaaarrrrroooonnnn! Manson hit me!"
Danzig - "Does this come with f*&#&$ elvin blood?"
Manson - "Anybody wanna hear Disposable Teens? Anyone?"

You can get away with that when you build one of the most amazing, complete, theme parks right from the beginning.

Well, I've got two new photos to share, one of which has something we've yet to see--track!

I do apologize for the distance of the photo, but it was taken from my bus this morning as we were driving, so I didn't have much time to take the photo or even to zoom as I barely knew where to look...

You are looking at (from a distance) the first piece(s) of track for Hollywood Rip, Ride, Rockit.

Supports for the coaster have lined this street for weeks now...

Hey folks. I was out at the park yesterday and they are starting to move along pretty well with the construction. There are many footers completed, especially in the area in front of Blue Man. I also saw a large hole in this area which seems to be the area of the Drop Tuning section, there are trenches everywhere but this hole is pretty deep. Some block work has started as well, it seems to be in the vicinity of the new permanent stage. There is re-bar work and footer framing through the entire constuction area. It wont be long now, we will be vertical soon.

I wish we could get a better look at the area, they have it blocked off really well.

I think the red and tan color scheme will look very cool.
