Re: Did I miss something? What is happening at Paradise Pier?
Pretty much they are still in the prep phase, removing the stufff that has to go, and working on the plot, such as moving dirt, and adding supply lines (such as electricity). Once that is done, they will pour the concrete for the floor and start building the building structure. This should be finished by early summer of 2007. At which time, they will start to actually build the attraction, install the track and sets, etc.....
The ride is supposed to open to guests in spring/summer of 2008, though you might have some soft openings and previews in early 2008, depending on how the installation and testing goes.
