Update from today June 1, 2009

Today I was not lucky enough to see any testing. I didn't stick around to wait for a possibility either since crews were in full force all over the site today. Paint touch ups, wiring on the evac towers, landscaping, new fences, new walkways, new concrete, and work on the queue and station. I saw more people on site today than ever before.

On a side note, I think this has already been discussed but the queue for the attraction will be completely outdoors, from entrance to loading. Most of it will be covered but nothing will be inside. I was able to see the queue through door openings on both sides of jimmy neutron. And from what I saw nothing will be closed in either.

Great pics....

I thought there was a good chunk of queue inside...guess I thought wrong.

As much as I think the coaster itself is very sexy, I can't help but get the feeling that it doesn't really suit Universal's surroundings much. It might look much better once everything is in place, but so far it sticks out a little too much...

Check out the last picture from HatetoFLY's update, that structure on the right side top of the building where the clock tower will be.
(I haven't seen it posted here so I'll mention it, the concept art has been changed from having a generic building on the right side to having that be the clock tower.)

It appears that the building is being designed to be viewed from that upper floor area on the inside. Interesting...

I love all this stuff! You are all awesome for taking the time to put it together. I sometimes feel so lost with the construction, and while I see the pictures, my mind just can't seem to comprehend everything yet. The construction walls keep my mind from realizing what it is maybe... LOL. But really... any which way, it will all be fabulous I think... I keep saying that, but this THEME PARK really makes me just want to get lost inside it all.

As far as Sinbad, I finally got to see that last year. Nothing special that is for sure. I feel like there is a wasted space there. It definitely can be put to better use.

Those were some pretty cool views. Thank you!

Now, anytime I see pictures of the trains... it always seems like it is a picture so cropped, the quality is just shot... is this the case? Is it that far away from where everyone is catching the photos that the pics are eh?

^The train is sitting in the station, and where it sits its very hard to get a decent picture of it from either side of the station. Plus my camera sucks.

Is their any information on the songs that will be playing on the ride? I know the genres (hip hop, country, rock, etc), but what specific song(s)?
