    Rides may be open but water still not available at some stands and restaurants according to sources on the ground. Sounds like they're working it all out fast and working around the limitations pretty well though.

    When there is a water main break, there is usually a "boil water" alert for about 24 hours.

    At this point Id feel its a mistake to not close JPRA and re open with new Hollywood version and this coaster to market it as Jurassic World and open with an updated Raptor enoucnter and Dino's all around the area like Hollywood too, updated restaurant, ah, I can see it now! Id book a vacation around that tbh since I'm only going for 2 days this fall.

    If they are going to rebrand the area as JW, they need to leave the old school Discovery center, but make it the derelict version from JW. lol

    Or they will keep JP and JW both in the land and you time-travel with a delorian screen ride that could be build smack in the middle.

    Considering just how bonkers Hollywood is getting for JW, I have no doubts anymore of the Orlando land and River Adventure being reconverted.

    Eh...given the reliance on screenz, I hope not. Thought we were past screenz now.

    It's not just that. Taking away the big "epic" entrance and replacing it with the screenz tank. Plus the mist around the T-Rex in the finale.

    “Epic”.

    Personally, and this is my opinion, but personally I have no emotional connection to yellow ultrasaurs or purple Psittacosaurs in a lagoon, because they aren’t anything we’ve ever seen in any Jurassic film. It never really felt like Jurassic Park to me. But that’s me.

    Going through the gate like that is one of the best moments of the ride. They should NOT replace animatronics with screenz.

    Going through the gates is absolutely iconic. I'm all for a refresh or retheme, I'd even argue it's overdue, but I would really hate to lose the gates.

    i don’t care about the screens stuff, but the Mosasaur scene just looks lame going by videos. Far too long and weirdly placed. Should be where the lame predator cove scene is

    The only screens are with the Mosasaurus scene and the small use of LCD screens for context of story.

    The rest of the ride would remain practical.
