King_K, funnily enough, my mother was on that Virgin tour group of Universal! Had I realised before hand, I'd have asked her to take extra photos! :?r

Frutilicious!

I was there yesterday, ended up going to Universal around 5 to check out the construction... bad timing, I forgot about the Parade.

Did look neat though, and that drop is pretty steep.

Anyone no where you can get 3-D animation of this ride yet? I haven't seen any videos or has Universal not released any?

I was at the park about two hours ago and they were working on the next piece of track after the upward helix. ...Looks really cool in person. I'm also really liking the look of the drop into the fire house.

May can't get here soon enough. :)

I am really looking to this one for several reasons:

It is in Orlando (and I live here)
It is outside (unlike Mummy, Everest, Space Mountain)
It does NOT have OTSR's
It looks like a total blast!!

Can't wait here!!

That drop into the Treble Clef really does look sick. You are going to bank hard to the left and take that element pretty fast. I am glad to see people getting excited about this ride. The other site I frequent has been a 9 month complaint fest reguarding lack of themeing.
