    My first post wasn't a complaint. That's why I asked for thoughts before I gave my own.

    My ex-wife never complained just like that.

    And to answer your question, I am assuming it's not finished yet.

    The parks close so early due to the huge amount of $$$ Universal makes from hiring them out in the evening. My hope for the new land/parks is that they are able to balance this out better so that nighttime shows become a larger part of their repertoire for their guests, but being honest, I'm not really hopeful. It's something their main competitor doesn't offer to the same level (full park access most evenings) and so is a huge part of their financials.

    Does anybody have the photo/video of the eruption still? It seems to have been taken down or something.

    A freaking toll booth is what we're worried about? Guess I haven't missed much around here lately.

    Just found out the Waturi are descendants of ancient Pandorans that flew through space on the backs of their time warping banshees. Expect some Blue Man group on stilts and loincloths in the park. :);)

    Looking at this I wonder how long an eruption show lasts exactly

    Tbh, I shouldn't turn down any quality of Volcano Bay by just even one slide not being operational.

    That said, I am fine with it. And that whatever isn't open, will probably be ready by the week after opening.

    Duh. Will take months to get it where it should be by this point.

    With the issues from last year in the Fire, I almost expected this to somewhat happen; as it set back a bit of progress for them, and that they would of probably gotten done with testing all the slides sooner than later.

    That said, am I angry about it? No. It's a new freaking park. Not a theme park, not a waterpark, a new park. You will have issues in the beginning, but they will improve on them.

    And honestly, I think what Andy is refering too, isn't the drop slides and is more of the mat slides.

    Hmmm... those drop slides have been wrapped in new plastic and scaffolding in very recent days. The north river has yet to be refilled, correct? And finally, we haven't seen the coaster operating. Which one(s) might it be...

    perhaps it is just a restaurant or (horrors) a bar that won't be operational... ha ha ha... aeh.

    They have had the Waterslide testing before if I'm not mistaken. I am almost betting that it will be done.

    The ones I'm more worried, is the mat slides and the drop tower slides.

    They may be able to get the drop slides done, but I don't see a chance in hell that the Mat Slides open on the 25th. Atleast, from aerials.
