    Isn't that review above also totally inaccurate? Ride Nows should have no effect on any rides you're currently queued up for on Tapu.

    Yeah, I think that is why it was posted to show the ignorance of the poster

    I think the Tapus are too smart for that guy -- the watch will change its picture from your queue status to an, "Enjoy [name of Ride Now ride you are currently entering]," possibly giving the impression that you've lost your spot. But it will revert back to queue status once you complete the Ride Now ride. I was actually pretty impressed with how the Tapus could keep track of your position -- not your spot in the queue but literally when your body exited the Ride Now ride.

    Do you tap for the rivers? What happens to those lost TTs? Can they ever return?

    The TMs with masks are picking up the TapuTapu's all along the floor of the action river. Last time I saw a TM come out with at least 20 all linked together.

    What about FoP glasses. I wonder if they need to pick those up off the ground between shows at all?

    Nope. FoP is perfect and you're just mad because your head is misshapen. (Joking/sarcastic ;) )

    Just got back from VB today. Still pretty rough. Some other original menu items are back though. However we waited in line 55 minutes today to get food. Believe it or not there was at one point a 30 minute line to enter Teawa. Isn't that one of the things you're supposed to do to avoid the lines?... The entrance area to Honu Ika Moana is still a mess. The mess was so bad the ops called in 3 security guards and 5 other team members to sort people. Krakatua also had to be evac'd earlier in the day. Then later as well. And Ika Moana also broke down multiple times. Other than that the park was ok. Both outset slides on the Punga Racers are now open to all. And there were 2 different wave types I notices in the wave pool today. One being a strong current that pushed you towards the shore. It was pretty fun, and made it feel like an infinity pool. So yea, the park is definitely still a work in progress.

    Do you think many of today's issues were caused by overcrowding? Do you think crowds this week will be better as local kids go back to school?

    Yes many issues were caused by crowding. I know the park was at capacity today. It is wwaaaaayyyy too many people in the park at once imo. I don't think crowds are going down at all. AP's will still flood there. And a lot of the people I saw there today were adults, who didn't have kids.

    Maybe they're testing the park's limits by slowly increasing capacity every day.

    At this point, I think we're seeing Universal throw everything against the wall to see what sticks. Capacity, food...they're going to change every small detail systematically to help stop the VB issues they're having.

    I had the most perfect day at Volcano Bay yesterday. I went with a group of 10 celebrating my birthday. We stayed at Cabana Bay (well currently staying) and did the early entry at 7:30am and I rented a Family Suite Cabana for all of us, so of course my experience will be a bit skewed but it was an amazing experience. Everyone had the best time and we literally almost did every slide and could have done more if we weren't absolutely exhausted by 5:30pm (save for Ko'Okiri which had too long of a wait all day for something that would have split the group up in half or less).
