    Not liking what I'm hearing. I'm a HUGE waterpark guy and currently have VB on my pass...but if they're going to change the things I like best about the park, they might just lose my extra money next year.

    I was hoping for an expansion and smoother operations by next summer...sounds like the only thing they've gotten right is Tapu Tapu.

    I think they tend to adjust the strength of TeAwa based on operational needs, I doubt it's permanently tamed down.

    Too, it could just be a series of pumps that require service. These are the ins and outs of theme parks.

    I've seen them tweak that river based on staffing, guest behavior, and weather. It really is luck when it's going full blast or not. It's not permanent (or even the same even within the same operating day)

    Sounds like Volcano Bay reached phase two capacity a couple of hours ago.

    Sigh. The odds of them having an expansion done for next May are getting near impossible timeframes now. :(

    After last year- what could possibly make them not go through with it immediately?

    Despite it working better, I feel they still have a lot to get working for phase 1 haha

    I’ve heard that the crew left to help with F&F, that’s why they’re making tremendous progress recently. The downside is that they’re moving directly onto Nintendo so the volcano will be finished in about 2021.

    As bizarre as it might seem, I don’t see any reason for VB to open for the next six days. Nasty cold down there in the coming week.

    (keep an eye on those coconut palms!)

    It appears we are not the only ones who are bored with the lack of Universal announcements.

    Was not aware that she did this too. So sad to lose her.

    It appears I wasn’t incorrect in my assumption...
