It's been a while since our last one, so we're back to kick-off the new year to take a look around the Universal Orlando Resort. In this update, we’ll be taking a look at projects happening all around the Resort - including construction progress on Fast & Furious: Supercharged, Aventura Hotel, CityWalk/Voodoo Doughnut construction, and more!

Wow. It has been a while. Thanks for the update!

That JP 25th anniversary merch needs to be mine. Like the 3-park Tumblr too.

I think $33 for that little build-a-car, while expensive, is just the right price when marketing to tourists. As many here probably do for alcohol or what have you, parents definitely tend to budget a lot for souvenirs if traveling to Orlando. So while parents may think/ask "Really? That's what you want?", in the end, $33 is cheap enough in the scope of things that I can see those doing gangbusters.

For comparison Ridemakerz at Disneyland DTD cost $40.

When you compare directly to Ridemakerz it makes the price seem pretty high considering with Ridemakerz you get a pretty nicely built car that's much bigger than the F&F one... but that said, it'll be fine.
