    According to them, USF has a 14% increase in attendance over the year prior. That's really significant.

    Thanks Transformers. It's especially funny because USH had a 15% increase when they added it too.

    Here's some pictures of the site. You have to rent a small child for this view, but at least you don't get wet.

    Great shots!

    I can't believe they aren't taking out that bus turn around area. There has to be another spot for that...

    The leaked plans have it removed, with a narrower street for the service entrance.
    Do you like my signature?

    The road is about the same size as the existing one on the water management site. It looks like the turn around will go, but the drainage plan isn't clear.

    Leaked plans? Do you mean the vague NOC layouts published by the city?

    On this old one it looks like the service road would go back to the original width before they added the turn around. Where the darker pavement would go but the lighter would stay.

The red outline is the project outline, and the shaded light pink area is the apparent show building.

    ^^^If the scaling is correct, some of it may go/stay depending.

    Great photos!

    I still have trouble believing that Thunder Falls is not part of this. I know it's not within the existing outlined project area, but who knows, changes to an existing structure could be a separate project.

    This image is just pure speculation, but imagine using the Thunder Falls structure as the attraction entrance/exit and indoor queue area (the optional extended outdoor queue would be outside, by the JP show building). Thunder Falls connects directly to the Load/Unload area of the attraction.

    The ride starts with an indoor portion, heads outside for some fun, and then back inside for unload.

    Thoughts? This makes so much sense to me.

    Agreed. Looks like Universal is ready to build yet another massive ride. Hooray for us!
