Great pictures! As usual, you've captured the full look & feel so that those of us who won't make it to the park for a while can enjoy the experience smile.gif

One question...is the amphitheater that was added with "Splat City" now gone?

The video was great, my question is what the coaster count in the park is now. I know we are not in the race for the most coasters in the world but I was just curious of what it might be now? I really don't pay any attention to that at all but just a thought... dry.gif

Great job with the video Bill. As much as I love making movies and editing them I love watching others movies. I love the different camera angles you used while recording Avatar. The song is also a great choice. Great job. I have a feeling this is going to be a great year!

The name of the song is "Funhop" by Todd Schietroma. I never heard the song before until I listened to the "Date Movie" soundtrack a couple months back. After the song played, I knew then and there that it would be the PERFECT NU theme song for my video.

Thanks for the nice comments.

Update on the status of Nick Universe. Both Blue`s Skidoo and La Aventura de Azul were open today. Blue`s Skidoo features blue and pink cars that look like Blue and ... (I don`t know of a pink dog on that show as I have never watched it). Also, La Aventura de Azul had TWO and only two trains so far running. They ARE NOT the same train cars that they had on the ride in years past but all new cars.

The Nick Go Round still only has horses on the outside row (hopefully they will be adding horses to the inside row as well, otherwise they reduced that rides capacity in half). They add some Nick characters above the rounding boards, but it appeared as if they were not finished adding them.
