    Confirmed. Isla Nu-Bar sells alcohol. I can't wait to have a drink and listen to the dinosaurs in the distance! I love the fact that Universal is making the area really feel like a theme park on an island! I'm excited to see the Jurassic Cafe and Outfitters.

    They were pretty much done with the majority of construction on WWoHP 5 months before the grand opening and it ended up being way ahead of schedule. That's def not the case here given the tight timeline. I think once the ride is ready to go we're going to get a pretty immediate opening date.

    We'll see. I just wouldn't be shocked if there were TM previews. It's just one night.

    The latest JPland video shows a very brief look at the new area lighting up and running (at the 11:48 mark). It looks incredible!

    Plus you can still hear the JP theme playing in the background - perhaps it's staying in some minor form?

    I hope not. I don’t mind being stuck on that ride for a couple of hours

    Just kidding. Please fix it.

    There is so much progress!
    Lets say the rumors are true and they open June 21 or 22. Is that even enough time to invite the media? I'm not sure how that works.

    • When I was there, it seemed the theme was coming from one speaker (maybe from near the escalator), the rest of the sound is concealed in rocks throughout the rest of the area. Cicadas, birds, distant dinosaur bellows. It seemed to me that if you stood in between the two large rocks as you face the arch, these sounds would be in stereo and would be a VERY cool effect.

    I know this is probably an error, but...

    If that were the case, they wouldn't be saying summer 2019...

    They probably meant late June.

    Does anyone have any insight into this? More importantly, do we think the attraction will open with the ID?

    Until I hear something official FROM Universal, I’m not putting any stock in any “friend of mine” or “my Uncle, who’s a TM” or even “I’m a TM and this is what we were told”.

    Plus there would be something on paper showing the alleged delay or opening date.

    Doubtful. Prep work was being done even before the attraction closed for the new additions. Specifically for the IR within the show building.

    My guess is this will open soon if not later.

    You may also get wet from what I have heard

    My best friend’s sister’s boyfriend’s brother’s girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who’s going with a girl who went to Universal and spoke with another girl who knows someone that works there and heard that maybe the ride will open before TM previews but possibly after, maybe while the media is there or sometime before or after.

    I'm just posting what I am hearing. Apparently they are using a place holder for the IndoRex. Hearing a November delivery. You don't have to believe me, but look at my previous posts and see my track record.

    If that’s the case then they should delay the opening until then:lol:! I can already hear the complaints about the place holder (screen).

    Not gonna argue on here... But I guess we'll find out soon enough. Rumors are rumors for a reason. I do hope I am wrong though.
