    It's photos that are in essence, confidential and behind scenes.

    They're out there in the wild for those wanting, but it's ill-advised to post them on the forums, as we had a situation with those a while back.

    Hi, New here, just finished reading all 28 pages. (Dear lord!) Okay so like many of you, this has been my favorite ride just about anywhere. Having said that, my observation I'd like to share:

    The red scaffolding in the first section of the track past the entrance gate, that is being enclosed; notice that it drops down again. I'm wondering if they are adding a second drop hill, albeit a small one? Looks like with the height of those ceilings you could bring the track up and back down there. It's definitely curved downward and the initial arch curves around to the 1st lagoon.

    The color looks off on the boats, I wouldve prefered a silver with the blue

    Welcome...

    We know for a fact the ride track will have no adjustments. This offered a faster turnaround into the remodel. My guess is to get prepared for lots of projection mapping!

    Yep, I agree. But then do you have any theories as to why the ride drops down, so it seems?

    That drop has always been there. After the initial climb from the loading dock. It starts the momentum of the boat.

    Plus, what you are seeing and outlining is a 180 degree turn, not a drop.

    There was always a drop after the first lift.

    As @Chris has said, it helps start to move the boat.

    __

    As Chris also said..do expect Projection Mapping, and that it should be something more bonkers than what DWT was.

    Ohhhhhh, that! It looks so much steeper in the photo. I've ridden that at least 20 times (i know, a lot have ridden it more) I'd guess. But it's been over a year. My bad.

    My last ride on the original, was at a Kaiser Permente event in Feb of 16.

    I miss JP, still do. And I remember a lot of it, but man am I excited for what JW is bringing for the table.

    I still wonder exactly what’s going into that covered portion. I’m also expecting the projection mapping to be as solid as DWT’s. I still remember being blown away by the climax of it the first time.

    I don’t think I was around for that, but why are such images not allowed here? I get that it’s stuff that’s not meant to be public, but would the forums also get in trouble for that?

    These forums have had moments where we have posted things that shouldn't of been posted.

    That said, I think I remember you from YouTube; so if that's the case, welcome to IU! I can't wait to see what you have to comment on.

    Ohh...should have figured that since I noticed they also follow the IU Twitter. That explains things.

    Come to think if it, I think I have seen yours around elsewhere, or maybe I’m just remembering things wrong. Nice to meet you too.

    Bringing this bit up from the IU photo report, but it seems like they're making some form of jagged rockwork portion, with perhaps a new form of awning? Just a thought..

    That said, IU just posted a new photo report; with some fantastic images by @Sydney on the current progress for Jurassic World.

    I'm no architecture expert, but It's hard to tell IMO. I'm willing to bet it'll be a place to throw in some projection mapping as it comes closer to completion.

    Also, just to spark some more discussion, I know there's been talk about the Indominus possibly replacing the first Rex head, and then there was that curtain with an Indominus AA behind it as it replaced one of those gas tanks in the finale room, but does anyone wonder about what kind of movement they'll have?

    With the newer technology, I'd also be willing to bet, be it one instance or the other (or even both) that they'll make it animated enough so it actually feels like it's out for the riders' blood and would make for a good thrill for the first time rider, especially with how the Indominus AA seems to be positioned in a way that it will try to lunge from the side and attack the riders before the T Rex appears.

    If nothing else, that's one thing I'm greatly looking forward to about the ride, including projection mapping on the scale of DWT's.
