    So if they were working on it... probably for a construction wall...?

    Worked on as in there were guys doing stuff to it (i.e. painter tape, paint buckets) and then removed everything they had. Sign was 3 dimensional. Could very well be left over promotional (from somewhere, not necessarily from the parks) that's being repurposed. I'm just reporting what I see, no one seems to bat an eye about markers but when a giant sign saying Jurassic World appears....

    I believe you, just find it weird they are working on it inside the park.

    So what, Universal is already preparing the construction walls to be properly dressed to match what's coming?

    I'm not going do doubt the sign, but I am curious if @RollermanDan can answer, where was it exactly? Was it in the park itself, near area that while is inaccessible now? Or was that backstage, and could've been visible slightly from park view?

    I can't honestly say 100% that it was, but it looked like it was heavy with 2 guys lifting it.

    It was directly to the left of the T-Rex / Jeep, looking towards the entry to one of the triceratops encounter, from the guest pathway. No roaming through the bushes for me thank you lol.

    Funny thing about it is, people outside of this forum and maybe Central Florida or die hard Annual pass Holders have no idea about Potter Coaster still or the new hotels.

    Walls were supposed to go up already, but were pushed back (not a long delay). Same with the Bypass Bridge closure.

    If it was moved, that's a good...sign. Packing is always a nightmare.

    Good update. He sneaks in some more details about track layout.

    Heads up though. Hearing the bypass bridge closure was pushed back from the 14th to the 22nd.

    I wonder what kind of inversions we're going to get. Is it too much to hope that we get a zero-G stall and/or a dive loop?

    Hey guys, very long time lurker on here but this is my first post.

    I did a semester at FSU last year and made a few friends who work seasonally at USF. I've asked a couple of them about this and they've said that they've heard spring 2021 as the projected opening but, of course, could be people making stuff up or a case of the telephone game. Just thought I'd throw this in though.

    Glad to actually be joining in here!

    ps: any chance of a shrieking shack to house the raptors?

    That sign looks brand new, just with tape or some peel off protective film over the letters. I gather many of the folks working on the potter coaster will move to this and prep work is just starting again. I guess the delays mean they are still needed on the other coaster for the moment.

    Although the area becoming JW definitely seems a given, I really hope they don't. JP is iconic and timeless. JW will fade into a distant memory. Decent movies, but they're no original JP that won over the hearts of millions.

    Details details details!!! :clap:
