Eek. I hope it's still running. Been 9 years since I've ridden it. I watch the POV videos on YouTube quite frequently :P

There's no telling...it all depends on how smoothly the refurb goes.

That's a bummer about Jurrasic Park River Adventure. My kids (and I) were looking forward to riding it.

May 12th through 17th. Is luck on our side? Where can I find the actual dates?

Never been on this ride before. We have been on EVERY Disneyland and WDW ride though - even some that are no longer in existence*! We are certainly hoping that we won't miss out on one of their signature attractions on our upcoming trip.


*i.e.: Mission To The Moon/then Mars, then Predator, Delta's "If You Had Wings", Monsanto CircleVision, Mr Toads Wild Ride @ WDW and the cable cars, and lest I forget - the WedWay People Mover (missed the rocket ride thing), 20K Leagues @ WDW, etc.....

glad to hear JP refurb got pushed back, I'll be down there next week and was upset to originally hear that my favorite ride at IOA was going to be down for my entire visit

From what I have read Thats because they are working on the Harry Potter expansion ( hogwarts express tracks) and are working very close to Dragon Challenge right now
