I think Bluto's is starting earlier than that. My boyfriend works there and nobody's scheduled there that week.

It is starting earlier. I just posted the Feb. schedule. January's schedule was posted earlier in the thread. ** Just checked Bluto's was posted as Jan. 24**

If these do close as scheduled, does it mean they are unlikely to close in September this year?

They don't seem to close them more than once a year unless there is a specific need for it.

September is still hot, so they will be open. Rehabs are always done in the winter, as the ridership is lower, as is the temperature. Well, the temperature is usually lower. The 75F temps are a little high for Jan/Feb.

Thanks for posting this info. (Just wanted you to know it is appreciated!)
If anyone knows anything about the HP expansion please post or direct me to a thread that might be talking about it.
Thanks!

There's not much talk going on about HP2 since nothing has been announced from Universal. I'm sure there will be threads devoted to the subject once something has been announced.

Our trip is March 1-9. Due to schedules, we will be at IoA on Sunday the 3rd. What are the chances that Jurassic Park will be down a day early? It's one of my favorites and honestly, is the only reason why we began planning a trip in the first place. I'd hate to not be able to ride it.

Universal is planning refurbs of their rides so as to not coincide with each other, so as Dudley's will be closed till the 3rd, I think they won't close 2 major rides at the same time, unless there is an unpredicted problem on a ride, but those can happen anytime!
