As you certainly know, Universal Orlando is radically mutating and is increasingly becoming a much bigger threat to Disney. One of its latest project is a realistic train that will soon connect Universal Studios Florida to its sister theme park, Universal's Islands of Adventure. As you may have noticed from our latets photo-reports, work on this new train has already started at Islands of Adventure, but work will soon begin also in the backstage areas of Universal Studios. Here's one advisory recently issued by Universal to all Team Members:
Utility, Infrastructure Upgrades to Affect Backstage Traffic Flow
Beginning Monday, August 20, 2012 backstage traffic routes will change as our teams conduct infrastructure upgrades and utility maintenance along Perimeter Road.
As indicated in the map above, certain sections of Perimeter Road will be closed – and vehicle traffic will be
rerouted; however, pedestrians will be able to use sidewalks and designated walkways to traverse all work zones (indicated on the map in pink).
Isn't that obvious? The track of this new train is even highlighted in yellow (or is it orange?) in the above map. Notice that is starts from the area near "The Eighth Voyage of Sindbad" theater, and it goes all the way to the area labeled as "Future Expansion"... So, are you excited?
