Hey all! I have an AP and I'm heading down to Universal this weekend. Is the Mimmon ride open? I'd hate to miss it by a day or two.

It is officially in "technical rehearsal", but the Grand Opening is Monday.
If you have the AP, you may be able to snag an early preview.
Check on their web site or call USO to see.
We have one "reserved" for Sunday morning.

We leave on Saturday early morning. Can't wait for 9 days of fun.

I just noticed on universals website it says now open and participates in express.

I was there today and rode in the morning after maybe a 30-minute wait. There is a sign next to the entrance stating that the attraction is still in "technical rehearsal" and that Universal Express is not valid during the rehearsal phase. (I too did the AP early-morning signup, for Thursday, but when I saw DM operating I figured eh, I'll just ride it right now! )

Excellent ride, btw. And the covered queue area is a big plus in this week's weather conditions.

I just called to verify...no express for D/Me...which is what they usually do with new attractions.

Rode it three times last week. They were doing AP early entry and we didn't need to sign up. We just showed up and showed our AP's.

It's great fun, and a huge improvement over that Jimmy Neutron silliness.

I guess that means their AP Early Preview sign ups must've been going pretty slow...or maybe quite a few no shows with the weather issues.

The weather was fine the first part of the week, but the place was pretty empty. We walked right on twice in a row at about 7:30am.
