Well...down to less than 48 hrs. with regards to my on site cancelation deadline. Was gonna be checking in on the 9th...(catch the concert maybe), and then troll for Minions for a few days.)

Depending on work load, late June may offer the next opportunity to sneak away from the shop, but for a shorter period. plus...it's so stinking hot in July! (ok...I know it's already hot in Orlando.)

Darn...and such a great airfare rate...gonna be wasted!

From Orlando united thread:


Live Softs updates by @JTorrenga and @nfochairman:
@*************** @JTorrenga @BehindThrills @UORnews here now and workers have no idea what I'm talking about.
Queue speakers are currently live and haven't been in the past.
Still nothing yet, although ride safety instructions are playing overhead.

Was there over the weekend - it rained down there on Friday and 4-5 of the ride employees were outside cutting the rope and setting up the metal posts to manage the lines (which was on the side street leading toward blue man group).

I got excited and said "are you having a soft opening?" - They replied "No"

You could hear all of the sound effects, the crashing, the minions giggling from outside.

JUNE 4 UPDATE:
OK...Obviously, the "surprise" trip has been pushed back a few weeks...probably best for me anyway. I'll continue to monitor everything y'all throw out there. Thanks!

Modified our on site for a Jun 24th check in...so now-Universal...you just cost me some serious dough here. This better be a really awesome attraction!!
