Thanks for the update! Looks like construction is at full steam at the Studios. Glad Universal is continuing to update/expand the parks at a good pace.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

It's amazing how much construction they have going one at once at Universal, I really hope it all works out in the end. As much as some people despise Harry Potter it certainly seems to move the turnstiles and justify purchases for rides like Transformers, Despicable Me, Rockit and whatever Gringots London coaster they are building so that's a good thing right ?

^ HP was basically a license for them to print money, might as well use it!

The park really has changed. I believe with all these new additions, Universal Resort may even start to be a 3 day park. 2 days for both parks and 1 day for just Harry Potter lands.

It be cool if they use the construction sites to there advantage for HHN. Maybe through in a few crazy looking construction workers. I'm sure they already thought of that.

The park really has changed.


Tell me about it.

Once these 3 projects are done, not to mention Despicable Me just opening this summer, nearly a quarter of the park will be brand new. ...quite impressive if you ask me.

Don't make me kick you in the donkey!

^ It is shocking how much it has changed from opening - it really is almost an entirely new park! Is there any other major park that has changed this much in just over 20 years?

Just a quick revival my very old thread. I really had been away from this thread. Sorry about that. I figure I could post a few photos of my last visit. Feel free to click back to page one as this thread does go back to 2007. There are a ton of older park photos in here.

I just wanted to post a few photos of the Jurassic Park area. There has been a ton of clearing in this area in preparation for the new coaster.

Great updates throughout the years! I just read through the entire thread and it's amazing to see how much Universal has changed in the past 12 years!
