While our eyes were focused on the new King Kong themed area currently under construction at Universal's Islands of Adventure, numerous other projects were completed around the park. A few examples would be the top-to-bottom refurbishment of Sweet Haven (which includes Popeye and Bluto's Bilge-Rat Barges and Me Ship, The Olive), Dudley Do-Right's Ripsaw Falls, and Jurassic Park River Adventure. Let's check out these attractions and more:

What effects don't work for Jurassic Park? I know the exploding shack for Dudley Do Right's been gone for years.
