    I have a few pics like your first one but didn't post b/c I took them from an area I wasn't supposed to be. Behind the blockade/subway area and closer to the old ghostbuster stage. I was told to stop taking pics and leave the area.

    That is so funny, I actually snook back there, but got chased out :lmao:


    Like I said, there isn't enough done to really make anything out, in my opinion, April would be hard to make from the looks of it. But thats why I'm in web and not construction! :confused3

    I agree...April seems too soon to have everything up and running but you never know. Personally...I'm thinking sometime in May...maybe in time for Memorial Day weekend.

    I agree with metro that when it does open it will most likely be may.

    OMG! I can't wait to give this one a try. Picking our own song will definitely add to the experience. We are lucky with our timing as it sounds like it should be up and running for our July 4th week trip. Now, only if we can use FOTL for the attraction but I am sure that will be asking a bit too much!

    Any idea when this will be opening besides "spring"?
    We'll be there the first week of April so would love to try a soft opening or something

    Not sure...I'm thinking sometime by Memorial Day weekend hopefully. I think the first week of April is too soon...they still have a lot to do.

    Hubby said a TM told him yesterday that they trains haven't been started yet. Ugh! I hope he was just getting his chain jerked. Or maybe they'll quick to build...dunno, but I'm getting impatient.

    OMG, I just noticed...I've been tagged! And now I'm trying desperately to remember the reference. Something is there at the fringes of my addled brain, but it just won't come out.

    And it's a lovely red...so now I'm kind of a red-head. ;) (Well, pink on my laptop but red on my G1.)
