    Went to Universal today

    Went to Universal today

    the tram tour treated the fire as a special added event and drove around it and talked about it as if it was just another part of the tour.....

    They are already clearing away the debris.... my guess is in 8 to 12 weeks you wont know there was a fire......

    The courthouse and its square along with the left side row of building is completely intact (tho with the ugly ghost whisperer cladding on it still) oddly the plants, trees and grass of the square were still green and untouched (unless they already replaced these for a shoot) everything else in the NY are destroyed completely except for the one ugly brown bldng that is the front for stage 747 .... the four walls of the Kong bldng are still standing intact but the roof and eveything inside are completely gone.....

    I dont know what they plan but if they bring back a kong attraction I hope it is all new with a more advanced animatronic and based on the latest peter jackson film...

    Also the pond and sea parting was closed off because you could see that the lake level was about a foot lower than usual as the firefighters drained water from it for the fire....

    also by chance the earthquake attraction was closed due to scheduled maintenance.... oops some bad luck planning there!

    I do have pix but ill post those tomorrow as its late and i dont feel well at all....

    Re: Went to Universal today

    I went to Universal yesterday (Thursday) and Earthquake was back open. The Tram guide said it was the first day it's been open in a month due to refurbishment. I'm betting they rushed to get it back open due to the fire and King Kong gone, since a few of the effects were not working (fire from the truck, electricity bolt from the huge transformer) but that is just my guess.

    On a different note, I loved the Simpsons ride! Did it 2 times in a row! They just need to brighten the projection in the big dome though. It's quite dim.
