It's the middle of June, and we're starting to get updates from parks that are open throughout the country. And it's a nice change of pace.
Today we've got an update from Universal Orlando Resort from Andrew where the Jurassic Coaster is moving very quickly. Also, the Bourne Stuntacular has entered the Technical Rehearsal phase.

Bringing you a little construction update on the new Jurassic Park roller coaster coming to Universal Orlando.
Progress is speeding along with a large portion of the track now in place.
Twisty, Twisty, Twisty, Twist.
This thing is moving along SO quick.
Editors Note: Any chance this is open by December? =)
An overview of the construction area.
Over at the studios park, the Bourne Stuntacular has entered Technical Rehearsals.
It was just as exciting and explosive as you'd think.
Social Distancing in the queue
We hope you enjoyed this quick update from Universal Orlando!
We figured during this downtime for theme parks we'd share some pics of Islands of Adventure, one of our absolute favorite parks. The park turns 21 today and is officially old to get a drink at Mythos, or Miss Oats as our kids called it during our first visit to the park in 2006.
And that's where we'll start our look back at the park today. Enjoy!! - Gregg

For the second part, we move over to the Islands of Adventure of today, well, a few years ago, just before Dragon Challenge closed.
The park sure has changed over the years. Check out these amazing pics from Matt.
And lastly, we'll leave you with the future, some pics of the yet unannounced Jurassic Park/World coaster. These were taken just before the parks shut down in early March. Thanks to Nicholas for sharing this pics with us.
We hope you enjoyed this quick look back at IOA. We can't wait to get back to the adventuring soon.

Today we have a quick update from Universal Orlando Resort and the under construction, not yet announced, Jurassic Park/World coaster at Islands of Adventure.
Thanks to Nicholas for sending us some pics while he's escaping the frozen tundra of Canada.

Welcome to the all new Jurassic Park/Lost World/III/World/Fallen Kingdom/Dominion Coaster
Try hashtagging that one. =)
Maybe we're all off and it's a Poseidon themed coaster.
First I'm really seeing of this project, it's bigger than I thought, and this is just the early stages.
All workers should be required to do the Chris Pratt in the Raptor cage pose at all times
It stretches pretty far around the lagoon
Confirmed! DeBarge is performing at the opening of the ride!! (ask your parents kids)
Those are some rather large footers
And because why not, here's Hulk.
In case you missed it yesterday, be sure to check out our behind the scenes look (err, listen) all about the upcoming Secret Life of Pets attraction at Universal Studios Hollywood. You're all going to love it!
