Still don't think there's an official date but they're now doing some pretty intensive testing judging by other threads - real people being used and everything ;) - so keep watching the Universal site for updates.

Im sure it will be open for your holiday, if your only going to Universal once in your stay id call them on the day to ask if it's working, I cant wait to ride this one either.

Hiya, you can email universal from their website & ask them about this or any other query you may have & someone from guest services will ring you as they like to speak to you personally. I had a lovely chat with 'ken', hubby wasn't impressed by my telephone manner (giggly schoolgirl) lol

May be of help to you?

A local radio station is doing a live story from R.R.rocket on Wednesday 22nd July so maybe the ride is about to be opened or the radio team are going to be testing it out?

As your out there just afterwards you may be in luck?

Lets hope so??????????????

Clay,

Screamscape is a good site, good call.

I came across this on youtube ...

www.youtube.com/watch?v=DA1k5Hf8U_I&NR=1

It is from Universal PR and shows an animated complete journey round the track. Definitely sets the scene and where it fits in the park. You can see the Blue Man Group building and the Hard Rock Cafe at one end and where it flies through the building down at Twister.
