Wait a minute! Did I just say that Universal Studios Florida's old Hard Rock Cafe' is finally being demolished? Yes, that's exactly right. Work is well underway on the site of the abandoned Hard Rock Cafe', which is (well, was) situated in the "Kid Zone" of the park, behind Woody Woodpecker's Nuthouse Coaster. The building is now just a pile of rubble. Unbelievable, isn't it? But Screamscape had already broken the news on September 13, 2011, remember?
But, we are not just talking. We actually have some pictures that confirm that, which we took just a few hours ago. Take a look, and be amazed. This is actually happening.
First of all, new walls have gone up near the former entrance to the restaurant:
A new camera has appeared in the demolition site:
A worker was controlling the area:
The column in front of the restaurant's entrance was one of the very few things still standing:
And from here, you'll really start to see some major demolition:
A huge machine was literally crushing every piece of the building:
Here you are an overview of the area:
You could actually still see some of the interior areas of the building:
The windows still had blinds:
The view from Curious George Goes to Town:
They've even destroyed the asphalt around the building:
So, this is the end of the old Hard Rock Cafe'...
The only thing we can say is... it was about time!
Now, what about the future of that area, though? Will they build a completely new area, or will they just expand the Kid Zone, building more playing areas and rides? Let the speculation begin.
