Islands of Adventure Update: Waiting for New Projects (PART 1)


The Universal Orlando Resort is currently focusing on building the new Fast & Furious; Supercharged attraction at Universal Studios Florida and completing some of the work that still needs to be done around Volcano Bay. Similarly to what happened a few years ago, it may look like Islands of Adventure won't receive as much attention in the near future, but that may not be entirely true as Dragon Challenge is rumored to be closing very soon. Let's walk around the park while we wait...

The adventure begins:

Sadly, it looks like the oil cans that were "leaking" are no longer working. Water used to spray Guests:

The nearby tire gag still works (it involves air, no water):
