Welcome to Universal Orlando!
Some details from the beautiful Port of Entry.
There are quite a few walls up in Marvel Super Hero Island.
They’re here for the major refurbishment to the Incredible Hulk Coaster.
Lots of the track is now missing, which is very encouraging.
A good chunk of the signature Cobra Roll is gone.
The murals are back! And they look rather vibrant and colorful.
Yes, it is October. And yes, the Captain America Diner has Christmas decor in place.
Nice Breaking Bad inspired merchandise at Toon Lagoon.
Current Reign of Kong Construction.
Reign of Kong construction keeps moving along.
Foliage is being painted on the exterior of the building facade.
Some views from up high in Camp Jurassic.
Time for some pretty photos of Hogsmeade.
I rode Forbidden Journey this week, and it seemed like some of the video in the screen portions of the ride was more crisp and clear than previously.
Anyone miss the pre-Potter Lost Continent?
Another view on the Hulk coaster.
The adventure lives on.
Now a quick walk through Universal City Walk.
NBA City is gone and demolition work has started.
At the same time, the NBC Sports Grill and Brew is officially open. We haven’t gone yet, but the early reviews have been pretty excellent, with solid food and lots of beer choices.
That’s going to do it for this week! What do you all think of the big potential changes coming to the Hulk coaster? Be sure to let us know in the comments below. Thanks for reading!!
