Islands of Adventure Update: Spring Break Crowds Descend Into the Park

That we like it or not, Spring Break crowds have descended in high numbers to "take over" Central Florida's theme parks and attraction to check out all that they have to offer and to enjoy the warm, sunny weather that they missed so much during the harsh winter that dominated the northern hemisphere in the past few months. But weather and crowd levels will not be the focus of this update.

Come and join us to see what's going on in the park (including the future site of the new roller coaster):

First of all, construction continues in the area surrounding Hogsmeade:

Not much can be seen from Guest areas other than cranes:

It is possible that Universal will keep this as the entrance of the new roller coaster:

The exit could be modified as it can turn into a bottleneck in some situations:

Reign of Kong was closed due to technical difficulties:

It appears that Universal is learning from Disney... Notice the Cornhole game on the floor:

Toon Lagoon:
