I can understand that some people might be very frustrated that Rockit is down if they are not locals and making a big trip to universal just for HNN, and have to stare at this finished new coaster right there they can't ride.

She turned me into a donkey! I got better...

I went to HHN twice already (Friday and Saturday) and both nights they were testing the ride using the conveyor belt loading system. I asked a few employees at the line entrances to the houses and they said that they don't know when it will open for HHN. But if they are testing it now with all the newly arrived trains along with the loading system, it should open soon.

I just hope that they turn off those damn trim brakes. It completely defeats the purpose of a roller coaster. Like on BTMR, the train is already too long and too heavy for anyone to feel significant speed or force, why slow it down!? If anything they need power wheels like on the Matterhorn. Sorry, just sayin.

I know more about donkeys than women!

I went to HHN and didn't understand why they didn't have it open for the event? I did manage to ride it though. I listened to secret track number 709. "Mouth for War" by Pantera.

Rockit is closed!? I'm going on Saturday & have been looking forward to riding it. Is Mummy open for the event (first time to HHN)? If Rockit isn't open then no big deal since I'll be living in Orlando in January :b

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

Thanks for keeping the important pictures coming. I guess no one from this site is visiting IOA at the moment. Halloween Horror Nights started though, so perhaps we will get some good updates.

Welcome to Jurassic Park...?


I hope this doesn't ruin JP's atmosphere.
- Come visit me at Test Track, Mission Space, and Spaceship Earth in EPCOT over at WDW, I would love to meet some more TPR members!

I'm picturing that they'll bring in lots of tall bamboo to cover the sightline. They already use some tall bamboo in the area.
