Looks like wikipedia has been changed, lol

Hii,

Yesterday the Examiner posted an article about it because NBC was filming a travel show outside and the post says that it opens June 11th.

To see the post just google examiner despicable me.

Any truth to any of this?

They're probably believing Wikipedia.

Universal hasn't announced a date yet. It is anyone's guess whether these dates by other publications are correct.

And then, depression set in..............

DANG!!!! If this is true, We hit town the night of June 2, but spend all of June 3 with friends who used to live here. And we are NOT spending it at Universal. So I will miss the soft opening. To add insult to injury, June 11 is the date I originally wanted to come to Universal, but they took for-freaking-ever to post APH dates, so DH wanted to move it up a week so as to lock in the APH rates.

THWARTED! And I do not know if I will ever get DH back to Universal.........

I asked the guy who runs ***************.com if he had heard anything about the rumoured June 11th opening date and this was the response I got this morning:

Thank you for the tip. I wasn't able to confirm that these are official dates. However, it seems extremely likely, as all indications point to the attraction opening any day now (possibly even today).

Thanks again!
