Hope they have some soft openings when I am there june 21-28 but if not I will be happy just to be at Universal

I'm dying for this to be open when I'm there on 17th July- 1st August. What are the chances?

With a July 3rd grand opening I would think your chances would be excellent.

I'm not holding my breath for FOTL for the soft opening because they didn't let you use it for Simpsons. That probably means DH will wait the required hour or whatever to ride it during that timespan, while I will wait till it's officially open and I can flash my premier pass. I'm anxious to ride it, but I'm also allergic to lines.

Wow, that lift hill is wild! We'll be there over Labor Day weekend so hopefully it's smooth sailing by then. Their website says the height requirement is only 51" so ds8 is just tall enough. I hope the harness locks down tight cuz he's a skinny little 52 pounder with a tiny heiney. Funny thing though, he's still too short for Dr. Doom.

I can't wait!!!

Thank God for FOTL!!

My DS is 51 now and 6 years old. When we to he will be just turning 7 and he is hoping to be tall enough to ride. He is also 52 lbs and skinny. Last summer he barely made the 48 for ROTM and loves that ride, so we are keeping our fingers crossed.

I am going to US/IOA July 6 - 11. We are staying on site. Will that front of the line pass work on this new ride for us? Also with this front of the line thing how does it work? We get a ticket and come back? We stand in a different line? Not to clear on this part. Thanks in advance for any information I can get.

This board ROCKS!

The unlimited express pass (what we like to call FOTL ) is your room key and you just go thru the express pass line and show the tm your room key and if the offical opening is july the 3rd then highly doubt they will have express line access for a little while

That's a fair assumption.
