The skyline of Marvel Superhero Island has been restored:
The full cobra roll, in all its awesomeness:
The launch tunnel, drop, and first loop:
The back portion of the ride:
As we stated at the beginning, work continues to be done around the queue area:
The back portion of the coaster:
Some thematic elements should be installed soon near the end of the tunnel, which has been repainted:
The first drop looks even more intimidating now... Maybe it's because it has been missing for months:
The lagoon side of the coaster:
The coaster seen from the heart of Marvel Superhero Island:
I wonder if the Disney lawyers forced the rebuild as that's about all that that can do to Universal.
They will never get the theme park rights back which is great for marvel fans because they have done NOTHING with the world wide rights and the Disneyland rights to marvel the past 8 years
Is there any chance we can see a few comparison pictures from pre-demolition to new build. To my untrained eye I cannot spot anything that's new and the rise just looks the same. If the track needed rerailing then that's fair enough but I'm pretty sure it was to upgrade the experience ??
Nothing new yet. It was really rough and needed the rebuild just like Space Mountain and Big Thunder got complete rebuilds recently. There's a chance that the new trains could be floorless which would add a new element to the ride. Most likely it will just be some new theming in the queue though.
I haven't heard anything about becoming floorless. That would be awesome!
Any suggestions on when it might re-open ? If the track is up surely its just a case of testing the cars and we're good to go.
I'm visiting 15/16 May and would love to go on it again.
