    I miss the waterfall... the Hollywood ride was superior due to having a waterfall... and now we get very visible dangling legs

    Went a couple of days ago, it was extremely hot, and I wanted to get soaked on Jurassic world. I was
    surprised though that they didn't have the water blasters and was curious if they got rid of them or they were just off?

    It's tricky because the Raptor Encounter is right there.

    If you want to be soaked sit in the 2nd row on one of the ends. Not only do you get the full blast of aquarium scene, you also get the wave that washes over in the drop after the lift into finale. I came out looking like I had just showered...

    They were testing them before the ride opened. I have yet to see them in action since.

    I'll be super impressed if they do this now, rather than waiting for the annual maintenance shut down.

    Hoping we actually get the Indo claw swiping at us!

    Is there any footage to prove this or is this just word of mouth? Cause I also just saw this tweet and I'm getting stoked... :o


    Also, now would be a good time to remind people in this thread that spoiler tags are a thing on these forums in case we see pics and stuff of it in action. I definitely want to see the difference not knowing what to expect. :o

    I don't remember


    These two recent video's uploaded to YouTube confirm the finale area where the head was is covered right now:




    --

    Also, I might be wrong but I believe the Indominous Rex sounds that play in the finale now that it's covered sound a lot more loud, and like, different, as if they are actual roars rather than growls, like when the head was present. I might be wrong, but that's what I hear. Maybe they're testing new audio for the bigger animatronic?

    Just rode it and can confirm the old head is gone. Now it’s a head and a portion of the torso. However you can still see the holes for the arms that need to be installed so it isn’t fully there yet. Can’t wait to see the final product!

    Ooh, I hope we can get some HD pics of what it is as of now. The footage we have at the moment seems a little hard to see with.

    Universal Hollywood’s YouTube just uploaded the original JW commercial saying that it’s now open. Is this because of the new Indo??
