  1. Wetter than a dogs chew toy.
  2. This was a interesting read for me as I knew nothing about it. Thanks!
  3. https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10153126728268599 first pov test run never mind posted earlier.
  4. That makes me wonder if they would even do that, or if it will be a more open gate like other recent gates they have redesigned.
  5. Did someone say <div class="roller-coaster">.....?</div>
  6. Luckily I choose mon-wed for the 3 day ticket plan. Hoping that brings good luck with minimal crowds. Also, has anyone been to the Blue Man Group at Universal? Does it differ any from the show in Vegas? I went to the show in Vegas a few years back and I am curious as to any differences between the two, or is it the same basic show. Thinking about buying tickets and taking the lady friend as she has never been.
  7. I really wish I could get myself into this mind frame. Patience is a virtue that I cannot seem to find in myself when it comes to waiting in lines, no matter what is there to entertain/distract me. That will come with age my friend. I am by no means old, but I am older than you, and I remember being the way you were when I was younger. Now its the complete opposite, or maybe I have just slowed down a little and enjoyed the little things more often. Either way it makes me sound old.
  8. Veachy?..... Peachy?......................................Venivici!!!!!! Tusk, stretching that one.
  9. That's great help, thank you! I hope none of the lines are that long, but if they are I will definitely check out the single rider lines.
  10. That is one thing i truly remember from 5+ years ago. All the things to look at and be distracted by in the lines. Its a rejuvenating feeling when lines are forever long. However, this will be the first time I have been during whats considered to be an off-season, so I am hoping crowds are light, that of a KI crowd during a monday - wednesday
  11. I appreciate all the replies everyone! They have been very helpful. I will look into upgrading (at least the final day) to the park hopper option at the park, if they allow it. I am hoping the crowds will be nice to us being that it is an off season.
  12. I may of said a few things incorrectly in my original post, and for that I apologize. Its true, I do not like Harry Potter, but that doesn't mean I cant appreciate something for what it is. I am a big fan of architecture, so I am sure i will enjoy it thoroughly. I also didn't mean I will skip over specific things I don't like. I am going with a very stubborn woman who wont want to miss anything, no matter how much she dislikes transformers she will want to ride it anyway. What I did mean by that was more towards the shows or the hidden things I may miss, as you had stated about about the Jaws references in Diagon Alley. That's the stuff I don't want to miss, so thank you! That sounds like the train ride is really something special, but is it really worth the extra 40+ dollars? That's my debate here. Since I have 3 days at Universal and will probably have enough time to ride everything I want to ride (we are going at the end of February on a Monday Tuesday and Wednesday) is it really worth it to spend the extra just to ride the train?
  13. This will be my first time visiting Universal in quite some time, I think its nearing 5- 6 years now. The last time I was there they were just beginning the construction of the Harry Potter stuff which, I am sure I will be dodging tomaters at this one, I have never really been interested in. I did the deal they are offering where you get 3 tickets for the price of 2. Before we get started, no I did not get the park hopper option. Refer to my non interest in Harry Potter comment above. My questions are these: Considering I have 3 tickets and they only have 2 parks, which park typical takes more time. My guess, given that of 5+ years ago, is that Islands of Adventure would eat up most of the time, or has that changed? Are there any specific shows that I am not to miss. I usually go for only the rides, but occasionally I would like to check a show out. I will be bringing someone with me that has never been, that being said what specifics should they see that I may skip over being someone who (even though it was a while ago) has been to. Hidden gems I may miss if you will. I have heard they have a tribute to the old Jaws ride, where is that located? Although I am sure it wont be hard to miss, I want to make sure I see it. Anything else you would like to add is greatly appreciated. Opinions on a line up of rides to ride in order for making sure you get everything in, etc. - Tusk (edit for spelling)
  14. If its a roller coaster they are dreaming up, it would have to be very compact. It does not seem like they have a lot of land to work with for a larger size coaster, and that's not necessarily a bad thing. edit - for a spelling mistake

  16. Couldn't agree more. I was sorta surprised its being attempted again, to be honest.
