Be sure to get on Dueling Dragons before it closes forever.

Thanks for the help! :p

I wish I could ride Dueling Dragons, and I don't think it's coming back.

No, it's being relocated to Scrapyard Amusement Park, where it will reopen as Recycled Metal!

I just swallowed a whole donkey!

Most of the rides at Scrapyard Amusement Park are pretty terrible to be honest, particularly Windjammer, but at least they have three B&Ms now.

What's with the donkeys anyway?

I just read that Universal just changed the configuration of the splashdown pools for their three "drop pod" serpentine slides at Volcano Bay... but even worse - they changed the weight limit on 2 of the 3 slides from 300 lbs to 200 lbs!?!? It can't be the drop pods, as 1 is still operating with a 300 lb limit. Not sure why the others were changed... but again - this probably could have been figured out with extensive testing instead of setting an unrealistic opening date to try and compete with WDW's Pandora.

Thanks for eliminating 75% of your adult male population on these slides, Volcano Bay! Can Universal do anything right lately? What a mess...

The answer is no. Next question?

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Yeah, 200 pounds is just absurd, you can be a perfectly healthy person in great shape and easily weigh more than 200 pounds. I guess the straight path drop pod slide still has a 300 pound limit which is quite a bit more reasonable, but still makes me wonder why the change on the other two?

Interesting, I'm assuming there were injuries as that's a pretty big change.
