Thanks Red 1...or 2...or......If it's STILL not opened by June 19, I'll reschedule again.
Other than the "Heat Factor"....late June is probably gonna be a bit less hectic for me. Park crowds are gonna be insane, but we've done the Christmas rush several times, and lived to talk about it!

Video going around now of the new universal commercial saying the ride is open now. Its posted on the Orlando united forum or you can go to the Orlando informer twitter. It could be a possible mistake but I'm excited now! Lol

Our 1st...(and only...so far...)-summer Orlando trip was pretty miserable. It rained every day...just enough to add another 20% to the humidity levels.
Felt like home.
Pre WWOHP, the crowd levels, if I remember correct were no worse, perhaps "better', than late December is now.

Now I really need to know...is it open? We will be heading to Universal during our upcoming vacation. June 25th is my Universal park day. I would love to be able to see the new attraction.

My son saw some postings about the "False Start".
His comment:
"Someone really doesn't know what they're talking about".

People need to do a Star Tours effect. Last year some lady was standing out in front of the ride all day waiting for it to open. More people started joining her, and they soft opened it. She was also the first official rider on it
