Sean: As we’re finally local we’re logging a bunch of visits to the Universal Orlando Resort. This week we take a closer look at the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter coaster, as well as the Jurassic Park- River Adventure refurbishment.
– In the past, many of our images have been posted, featured, and shared on forums, social media platforms and websites around the web. We work hard to provide the coverage that we do, and we encourage our audience to share our content and use our images, BUT ONLY IF proper credit is given to thecoasterkings.com. Thank you! –
Our first ride of the day was on Revenge of the Mummy, a coaster I get increasingly less excitement out of. I really enjoy the ride, but at the same time can’t help but feel like it is a tad outdated with its effects and polish. It could use a nice refurbishment.
I hope that one day Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit gets a special secondary entrance on CityWalk and will operate past the scheduled park hours. I know that was once a concept for the ride, but it would never be too late to follow thru with that.
I’m sure lots of our readers are aware, but there is a special song list on Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit available, details on unlocking the secret songs are available here.
Jurassic Park- River Adventure is down for annual refurbishments thru January 25th, after which it will be the primary water attraction at the park once again. Dudley Do-Right’s Ripsaw Falls closes after that weekend on January 28th to undergo a refurbishment (reopening on February 22nd).
The multi-launch coaster will featured forward and backwards motion, along with dark ride sections and a possible drop-track. The park hasn’t released more than a teaser promo image, revealing absolutely nothing of course. The new coaster will have a great fly by moment through a building that is also likely to house the queue, roughly where the old Dragon Challenge station used to be.
