A friend of mine just called me from Universal and he said that he saw groundwork being started for the Rockit track. They're starting to pick up the pace now.

This attraction could end up much better than the counterpart in Japan. Look at how Universal leaned to Premier and how great Mummy turned out. Now Universal is leaning on Maurer Söhne. This could end up being a pretty marvelous ride, something Maurer Söhne wants to achieve to "put a stamp" on their authenticity of great amusement attractions. They've aimed for introducing another couple new elements to this attraction. Maurer Söhne also says there is two seconds of air-time on Abismo's camelback, so we might be shocked at the forces on Hollywood Rip, Ride, Rockit. Creative also had some time from Hollywood Dream to see what they like and don't like about the onboard.

I'm stuck between not wanting this ride to happen, or anxious to see this ride open. The only reason I don't like about this ride is the theming. But otherwise, get the construction started again!

You mean get the construction started for the first time. They've only done land clearing, which they're still not done with. :rolleyes:

Walls went up in New York on Sunday night, and the Twister Queue has now been rerouted and has a large outdoor portion in the middle of the street:

I don't think the line would get that long for Twister, but did they take out the majority of the queue in Twister? Finally, construction is now picking up again. Nice pics Nick!:thumbs: :rep: Check out our funny videos!
