    You think they would open it in fall where the weather would be sorta cold to ride at least JPRA?

    I think you're probably right. They'll ride the Potter Coaster coat tails for a while just like they did Diagon, opening nothing in 2015. Maybe they'll add a small Potter street show or upgrade the Potter projection show to add a little more luster......soooo JP coaster for 2021 in that scenario.

    The Universal App showed wait times this morning for 30 minutes. So I assume that’s a glitch?

    Too bad. Got my hopes high for an early reopening. It still shows a wait time! What a tease.

    Can confirm. And I’ve seen team members wearing construction helmets with the Jurassic Park logo on them.

    I can add that IF all goes according to schedule, RE should move to the temporary location no later than 2/16.
