Islands of Adventure Update: Waiting for New Projects (PART 2)


Welcome to the second part of our latest Universal's Islands of Adventure photo-report. As usual, we invite you to check out PART 1 of this update to enjoy even more photos taken around the park.
In the previous part, we walked around Marvel Superhero Island, Toon Lagoon, Skull Island, and a section of Jurassic Park. Even though we already noticed a few new details, we can assure you that there's much more to discover in the remaining themed areas of the park. Enjoy the tour!

Let's continue to explore Jurassic Park:

Watch out for the dinosaur that appears on the monitors under the awning of Pizza Predattoria!:

As we mentioned in part 1, Dragon Challenge may close much sooner than we thought. According to some rumors, the attraction is currently expected to close before the end of the year to make way for multiple new experiences, including a new dark ride and walk-through attractions. We cannot confirm the veracity of these rumors because they didn't originate from us or any of our sources, but some Team Members working at Dragon Challenge are being trained at other locations and have also heard that the ride will be closing soon. I guess we will have to wait and see what happens...

The Hogwarts Express is now offering the Express service (am I the only one that found it ironic that the Hogwarts EXPRESS didn't offer Express? Yeah, that's a cheesy joke):

In the Lost Continent, we notices that the secondary window of Doc Sugrue's Desert Kebabs House is not being used any longer. It's just a Coca-Cola Freestyle machine area now:

The other side is open:

The bridge connecting the Lost Continent to Jurassic Park was open to Guests yesterday:

The back portion of the castle looks a little rough. It may need to be repainted soon:

It seems like the facade of Mythos was repainted not too long ago:

Caro-Seuss-el's warning sign is missing, so a temporary A-frame was placed near the attraction's entrance:

  1. It's fine if they wanna replace Dueling Dragons (YES i'm still calling it that lol) but at least sell the coaster parts to other parks (Six Flags; Cedar Fair etc.) They will happily give them love.
