  1. The new queue opened on Friday. However, there are many interactive elements still missing that will be added over course of the next month.
  2. Yup, there is another track system (underneath the main track that the cars are on) that provides the electricity to the vehicles. This was indeed made by Vekoma. Disney and Vekoma have had a long lasting relationship so why find another company if you're happy already? Vekoma is cheap and (as Robb and Elissa mentioned) they allow Disney to have more control over the process than other companies are willing to give up. We may never see another Disney/Intamin coaster as Disney changed the blocking system on Clalifornia Screamin' after Intamin passed it over to them, breaking the contract. I
  3. Hmm, well I guess they are common. Though the Timberliner side guards look good aesthetically, instead of being just a large piece of rectangular fiberglass. The ones on the TG trains just seem so out of place to me. In fact, I would love the trains if it weren't for those giant fiberglass side guards!
  4. I'm pretty sure that's so you don't get back to the station with a broken arm. In other words.. a guard. Ya, but what's the benefit of adding them on the trains? I can't think of any other coasters that have them. They may be necessary due to the proximity of the catwalks to the track during the overbanks? I just think they seem strange.
  5. Cool! What's with the weird sheets of fiberglass next to the seats on the sides of the train?
  6. ^Is there any way you could spoiler proof some details by using quotes or something? I too am very interested! If you don't want to, I totally understand.
  7. ^ She was actually really good and talkitive. I was about to take her picture, and she said "wait, I want to give you a different picture!" and she came right up to the camera like she did in the picture. She liked to cling to Jack though.
  8. Here are some pictures that you've already seen before! my camera takes horrible night pictures. I appologize in advance. I love this facade, actually I love this whole scarezone. This is how a scarezone should be done! Just in case you forgot where you were Entrance to the Hollowed Past And the biggest posse goes to Fear! "What!?!?!" No Madonna... I said Posse, POOOSSSEEEE. He even looks great sans posse creepin' "I read on the inernet that they're gonna tear this ride down!" "No way where did you read that?" "Screamscape"
  9. I went again last night and it seemed like the event took a step down. There really weren't very many scares... At first I just assumed that I had just gotten used to the layouts of the houses and the scare factor went away, but then I realized that none of the scareactors were really popping out. -Legendary Truth was still awesome, and we noticed some effects that we didn't see last time. But the ending of this house is very anticlimactic and boring. PLEASE make the ending scary Universal! 3 out of 4 times we went through there was only one scareactor in the last 30 seconds; they didn't a
  10. I'm curious about these seats as well. I saw them while in line for Havoc during the passholder event. I'll try and take a picture next time I go and see if anyone can figure it out.
  11. I'm having a hard time trying to figure out why the play pass would be appealing to anyone? Do you have to buy 4 or more season passes to get the $59 price as well as the free parking? That's pretty lame if you do...
  12. Great pics Erik! I spotted you about ten people in front of us in line for Catacombs when it was still light out. I figured it was a little too large of a distance for me to introduce myself lol. I had almost the same experience with Legendary Truth. I first went through around 6:30 and thought it was AWESOME, plenty of great scares and innovative effects. The second time I went through - around 11:15 - barely any scares... The one fault with this house is how time-dependent the effects are since most of them only occur when there's "lightning." You're either going to have a thrilling experien
  13. I just got back from HHN and boy am I impressed! There weren’t very many crowds tonight and I went to the Passholder Early Admittance. I got all but 2 houses (Orfanage and Zombiegeddon) completed twice, watched Bill And Ted’s, and rode a few rides. Overall a GREAT night! I don't think I'm going to post any pictures since the few I took tonight are very similar to the ones already posted in this thread. Instead I'll give a little review of what I saw tonight (minor spoilers): 1. Scarezones are top notch this year: Esqueleto Muerte- Very neat to look at but not scary by any means.
  14. The event starts tomorrow! And Universal is so close to revealing Fear: http://halloweenhorrornights.com/orlando/news_index.html?__source=EDW413456&ptyid=1703902 I am unbelievably excited!
  15. Now I love myself a good ride on HPaTFJ, but if it was anything like the ride you described... Well Universal would have to pry me out of the vehicle as I demanded to re-ride. I've never seen an episode of Jersey Shore, but I feel like the Snooki's Vag comment was pretty accurate. Out of curiousity, how did HRRRRRR change your life?
  16. ^^Why have I not been informed of this AP event? Are there any special requirements or do you just have to be a passholder?
  17. ^I have no idea about the music tracks on HRRR; however, I truned on news 13 earlier this afternoon and they were talking about the coaster. article available here: http://www.cfnews13.com/article/news/2010/september/152108/Memo-urges-Universal-roller-coaster-to-remain-closed It looks like Universal is going to try and open the ride sooner than later and it may only be down for a small refurb (Maybe relevant to HHN?):
  18. Robb is saying it looks more like Furius Baco in terms of the layout. This ride's layout appears to be wide spread - like baco - and not tight and compact - like Maverick. His comment had nothing to do with the type of train that will be on the attraction.
  19. Everything about this is awesome so far: 1. The Jimmy Buffett reference in your title 2. The In N Out shirt you were wearing in bed 3. Everything related to Harry Potter (Including your wife dressed as Hermoine) 4. EPCOT pictures 5. Your ability to subtly reference Dolly Parton in a PTR of Universal Orlando However... You should have an obligatory photo of Test Track since that is my work location
  20. Great PTR so far! As for Earl of Sandwhich, I HIGHLY recommend it. The protions are small but the sandwhiches are too good for words to describe. There's one in DTD you should check out next time you're there.
  21. Something cool I noticed about the newest teaser video is that at around 1:18 the sign he's standing next to changes. When the video isn't glitching the sign says "no need to rush" and when it starts to glitch the sign reads "rush." These videos are awesome! Busch Gardens marketing team is doing an extraordinary job with advertising this new attraction.
