  1. The Jeep and Mercedes SUV's were back on Sunday the 7th, and on the bus ride back to Cabana Bay Resort you could clearly see a large portion of the rear of The Hulk Coaster had been installed!

  2. Any idea on when Dudley is supposed to reopen from its refurb?

    Thanks for all your updates! Much appreciated!

  3. The hulk track has a slightly different layout on the backside than the original. It will be interesting to see what they do with the indoor queue.

  4. Different layout? No, looks like the exact same layout. I hope you are right, but looks the same

  5. Great pics. Can you get some of the new water park and hotel on your next trip?

  6. Your pics were already outdated when you posted them because they are moving so fast. They have already completed most of the track on the backside and have even put one of the loops together. check this link of an update done on 2-10-16 and it shows all the progress they have done so far.
