Today we have a quick Wizarding World update for you. Lots of changes going on and one pretty significant development that we were the first to report on yesterday.
We'll also update you on Halloween Horror Nights preparations and a few things from around the park.
So yesterday we were just planning on having a normal USH update, seeing the progress, blah, blah, blah. But as we walked by the arch, they were putting the finishing touches on the amazing looking entry sign. And it does look amazing.
More scaffolding is getting removed and Hogwarts is becoming more clear. We're really running out of adjectives to describe how amazing this looks. ;)
The Greenhouse ... not very green yet.
Moving over, you can see a lot of progress happening and all of the trees they planted last year are really coming in nicely.
Moving on to Halloween Horror Nights, the maze near Mummy is getting worked on. I'm always amazed at how much maze they can fit into a relatively small space.
Work is going on for The Walking Dead which will be on the former location of Stage 28.
Moving up top, the maze in the Parisan Courtyard is getting a nice facade. No word on what this maze will be.
Some nice advertisements for Crimson Peak which will be down on the backlot.
Be sure you are following along on our social media pages this weekend as John and Chris will be announcing the next maze at ScareLA Saturday at 4:30.
If you missed any of the recent announcements for the Jabbawockeez show, The Walking Dead, Insidious or Crimson Peak mazes, be sure to check them out.
Lastly, a few things from around the park. Finally made it down to the lower lot to check out the Raptor Encounter. It's very cool and quite popular.
Lastly, work on the new dining/retail location is coming along. Still no word on what exactly will be here.
As we were leaving, our good buddy Beetlejuice posed for us.
Alright, that's gonna wrap it up for this update. It will likely be a few weeks before we have another USH update as we've got a few VERY busy weeks coming up.
Be sure you are following along this weekend on our social media pages as we'll be at ScareLA all weekend to bring you not only the maze announcements for HHN but highlights of all the other amazing panels such as the Hatbox Ghost, Queen Mary, Knott's and of course the amazing show floor.
Next week we'll be up in the bay area checking out Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk on Monday and Six Flags Discovery Kingdom on Tuesday. Then we'll be at D23 on Saturday the 15 for the Live Action (Star Wars/Marvel) panel and the Parks Presentation.
As if that weren't enough we'll be at Sea World San Diego on 8/22. And then well start having park announcements for 2016 and then Halloween Stuff. Whew, exhausted just typing it. =)
Thanks again for all of the support and kind notes, it's all very much appreciated.

Any indication of how many mazes are being built in the backlot area? Last year there were 3, but I'm wondering if that is still going to be so with the Stage 28 area now being available and used.
