    The closest we have come to talking to an "insider" was when we did the HHN day tour. Our guide sounded pretty confident that it would be open by March. I hope he's right because we have relatives coming over from England and that would be super impressive for them. Personally I don't care when it opens, we'll have a great visit either way.

    Rip Ride Rocket has had problems but really, they could then say that Test Track in Epcot is also a fiasco as it breaks down All the time.

    Personally I'd be surprised if it's open in March, but given that I'm there from 3/2 to 3/17 even the wild rumor that it might be gives me a bit of hope. :thumbsup2

    Anyone else feel Jurassic Park now looks a bit...weird now sitting next to Hogwarts?
    Don't get me wrong, I'm super excited to see it up and running. But Jurassic Park was always my favourite themed island in IoA and I'm a bit worried what it will look like now.

    But once it did open, it would only run for about an hour and then it would break and then it would be done half a day and then up and then down. It was opened before it should have been even though it was late in opening. It should have been in technical rehersals but was announced as officially open.

    I have been following this project pretty close now and I would bet money I don't have, that it's not going to be ready in early March. It would be cool for you if it was, but with the amount of outside work to be still done, clean up of the area in general, and finishing the inside areas, etc, etc, I just can't see it being done in 30 days. Plus also factor in the hiring and training of the personnel needed to run everything. I wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't open until sometime around mid May and even then it might be close.

    I actually agree with you on this. As the saying goes I think it's more likely that Voldermort will give up all this foolishness and hand himself in than it being open in MArch but a girl can dream eh? :)

    I think that once all the landscaping is in and the rerouting done, it will be fine.

    They are supposedly letting the 2010 seniors try out the stuff during Grad Bash, which falls at the end of April, so who knows.
