In the meantime, let's take a look around the rest of the area formerly occupied by the coaster. As you will see, a lot of work has been done since our last visit.
At first, it appeared as these footers were going to be reused:
Work continues to take place during the day:
Some of the footers surrounded by water now have platforms around them:
The Incredible Hulk Coaster will soon dominate the park's skyline once again:
Thank you for visiting the park with us!
If the Universal team can pull off getting this roller coaster rebuilt in about 6-7 more months, I give them huge props. They are basically going from nothing to a finished ride in 6-7 months.
They keep proving that they are the kings at not only building things super fast, but building highly complex and advanced thing super fast. With all the new land they just bought, I have a STRONG feeling they will be getting that third gate (and maybe that long rumored Citywalk 2.0) open by 2020-2021 to "one up" Disney and their Star Wars land. The next couple of years are going to be really interesting!
Universal Orlando builds during the day even when within sight of guests. Disney does not. No matter how much land they buy, it will never be enough to "one up" Disney. Nothing against Universal...I love that park...but Disney will always be king in every category that matters (size, number of parks, number of hotels, annual guest attendance, guest satisfaction, spending per guest, % of guests who return, etc.).
Some of your stats are already wrong.
"Where's the track?"
In a thousand years none of this will matter.
Yeah but I will be dead then
Maybe I missed it, but does anyone know if they are planning on keeping the same track layout and elements?
