That's it! Thanks so much for posting this! It is bringing flashbacks to my misspent childhood and teen years.

Would love to see it open then. Booked a day at rpr to go up for 3rd/4th. Crowds will be overwelming but I would love to get a ride on the new coaster!

I hope it's open for you by then but no one's really sure yet. I'm either gonna plan a short trip when it opens or just wait for Horror Nights..

Yeah I don't have my hopes too high till I hear something official from Universal. We are trying HHN out this year have never been, so was going to get to ride it then but I wanted to get away for a cpl days since I will be working a stupid amount this Summer.

A My Cousin Vinny reference, nice.

In regards to Rockit, it's still in the cycling stage. I'm hoping it comes online in the next 2-3 weeks!

If July 3rd weekend is possible opening is it possible to have a soft opening sooner? Just curious if anyone thought there was a chance. I know it is wishful thinking but we'll be down next weekend and hoping to get lucky.

Anything is possible at this point but I don't see it opening that weekend...it's just a hunch.

Interesting about the Power 96 ad for a live broadcast at the July 3 opening...I screen captured the ad and did an Examiner piece about it yesterday. Lo and behold, the ad disappeared today!

I seriously doubt Universal will open the HR3 on July 4th weekend.

We will see if it launches fast or not. I am not trying to stir in controversy but I am just not going to say anymore.

I just looked and the radio station has taken this back off their site today. I'm still hopeful this gets back into testing soon though, we'll be there in 4 weeks!!!

I think the lift hill is going to be similar to Fahrenheit at Hersheypark...it's a steady climb...not a launch. Check this out:

Someone over at IOA central just posted grand opening on July 11th. I don't know how true that is but maybe there will be soft opening while I'm there from July 3-10th, I hope.
