Back on topic while searching for some HRRRRRR footage, I found an official non-animation POV of the ride with one of the songs that will be on the ride! It was apparently recorded before the track removal...
MOD EDIT: Link removed, please stay on track and do not post seedy stuff like this. For those that missed it, it was a link with a ton of pop-ups, not a link to a POV.
Some new info has been posted to IOACentral.com's boards from Noelno, a construction worker on the project.
So far i don't really see anything going on with the firehouse but im sure some kind of lighting will go in thre even though a mee fog system would be cool. As far as the lift coming down goes, i don't know why Universal decided to change anti-rollback systems like they did but the lift coming down is not really a bad thing. Think of it this way, by going ahead and finishing the track we were able to test the lift, brake stations, not to mention make sure the vehicle even made it around the track. If Universal had waited for the new rollback pieces to put the lift track in then all those tests would still need to be done. I wish Universal would have went with B&M but apparently when this project began B&M had a 5-year waiting list. Anyway, if Universal would have waited for B&M then we probably would not have a new coaster because the economy went to crap. Oh, here are a couple more pics.
