Re: Universal Orlando Resort

I'm not quite sure how else you are expecting a water park to look?

It's highly themed which beats most of the other parks out there and it's certainly an upgrade on Wet n Wild!

One of the slides is a new design by ProSlide so that's unique compared to other parks at least for a bit.

Re: Universal Orlando Resort

We're now only a few days away from the media event at Volcano Bay and the park is getting there however there are quite strong rumours that the slides inside the Volcano won't be opening with it as construction is still ongoing, this means that the water coaster and lazy river probably won't open e...

Re: Universal Orlando Resort

Just come across this on Instagram, they've been testing some of the night show. The wave pool also has lots and lots of LEDs so I'm expecting that to gradually turn red as the eruption happens.

Re: Universal Orlando Resort

I do think that if Uni weren't building a water park Disney wouldn't have built Miss Adventure Falls. Hopefully now with a true rival it will spur them onto expanding their offering considering it's around 20 years since they've had new rides.

You will struggle to do Magic Kingdom and Epcot in one day, if you want a good look around MK is a 1 1/2 day park

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

Every thing we have had on park this year was dreadful for example... I have been to burger kitchen and ate a lukewarm, dry burger (I went there 3-4 times last year and enjoyed every time) my mom went to the hotdog place on Tower Street which had a queue of like 5-6 people, after half an hour she f...

Re: Walt Disney World - Disney's Animal Kingdom

Whilst there is no denying it looks absolutely stunning, I'm not convinced it will capture people in the same was Harry Potter has at Uni. There isn't the shops to go round which obviously provides a huge amount of revenue, aside from the two rides and having a wander through the plants there isn't ...

Re: Universal Orlando Resort

Isn't The Fast and The Furious also using the Kong ride system? Disney seem to moving ahead of Universal again in terms of ride tech (even if Ratatouille doesn't hold up to either Transformers or Spider-man) There was some rumours recently of a redesign although I'm not holding out much hope.

Re: Universal Orlando Resort

Most of the scaffolding is now down on the Volcano, it's certainly going to be Universal's most picturesque park! If you look closely above the platform there are faces carved into the Volcano which is a nice touch. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C7EyEJ-WwAAW3el.jpg They've also been testing the waterf...

DPR have released statements on how well the parks have been performing from its opening to the end of 2016. The resorts budget was $2.7 billion (9.9 billion AED), so if it made 74.5 million AED ($20,283,147), considering they make the same amount all the time, they only need to do it another 133.1...
