We rode Velocicoaster today! Here's our thoughts on the ride....  

Official Velocicoaster POV released!  

We spent the weekend at Universal/IoA on Sat/Sun/Mon. In that time, we managed 15 rides on Velocicoaster. A handful of front and back seat rides, including a few at night (which is just epic!).

Though it will likely mean they need to close the dragons durning construction to ensure a clear rider envelope.

 

(sarcasm)I guess they could build a dueling inverted coaster next door to ensure continuous operation of that ride system.(/sarcasm)

Got to ride Despicable Me this morning during the Annual Passholders preview. Pretty fun attraction, although the actual ride itself is rather short compared to the preshow. I don't know if they upgraded the ride system since Jimmy Neutron (since I never rode that), but it's nothing spectacular. The theming in and around the ride building is top notch, though. It also made me want to finally see the movie, so maybe that was part of the idea, too. Either way, fun times, but I won't be waiting for this at any point during the summer.

Speaking of retired attractions, did anyone here experience the Ghostbusters attraction? Would love some "reviews" of what that attraction was like.

My first visit to the park was May 1991 (I had just turned 18). I remember being really disappointed with the Ghostbusters show back then. If I remember correctly the set was very similiar to the final scene of the Ghostbusters movie. I also remember that most of the speical effects were not very good.

So apparently there is something happening at Universal Orlando, check out what Themeparkinsider wrote:

 

- Universal appears to be demolishing Soundstage 44 at Universal Studios Florida, the former home of the Xena and Murder, She Wrote attractions. Sources on the ground in Orlando report having seen height-test balloons on that site last week, rising to or above the height of the tallest New York area facades.

 

- Universal has filed multiple building permits for a new attraction facility in the Universal Studios Florida theme park, apparently on the Soundstage 44 site.

 

- Whatever this project is, it has happened *fast*, with a swift selection of contractor and a fast-track mandate from Universal.

 

- Halloween Horror Nights had planned to use Soundstage 44, and would have to change its designs at this late date if Soundstage 44 were unavailable, as it looks to be.

 

 

Could this be Transformers? Or something else?

Anyways, it just doesn't seem right because they already have Spiderman which is the exact same track layout and a very similar experience...

 

Just wanted to offer my opinion!
