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!

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!
Welcome to another update from Universal Studios Hollywood. We've got a lot of great stuff to share in this update including some CityWalk updates, the final touches for Secret Life of Pets (which we got an awesome tour of, but sadly we can't spill the beans quite yet) and of course, Super Nintendo World.
We're going to start off in CityWalk since that's what we saw first!!

Seriously can't wait for this to open.
It was a beautiful day at the park!
First stop of the day. Let me just say, you're not going to be disappointed. And as Forrest, Forrest Gump would say ... "and that's all I have to say about that" (for now)
The facade is looking fantastic!
As well as Pets Place, which is getting some work done on both sides of the street.
Wonder if they'll have dryers in here for after you watch Waterworld in the splash zone? =)
Store, coming soon!!
Headed in for one last walk-through of The Walking Dead (for now).
From a couple of years ago, 360 degree video of The Walking Dead.
And of course, had to go into Wizarding World.
I got a new iPhone 11 Pro and wanted to see the capabilities of the camera.
Quite impressed with the Night Mode. Will take some time to work out all the kinks, but overall very happy with it.
Can't wait to use it during Haunt season. (although I do wish the video function had a night mode)
Moving down to Super Nintendo World
That wall is going to be annoying. =)
Jurassic World is still closed as they add in the new Dino!!
And lastly, the classic Universal Studios Hollywood sign is getting some work done
Alrighty, that'll wrap it up. We'll have a new update for SLOP when we're allowed to, so stay tuned for that. And we'll keep our ears open for Soft Opening dates.
Have a great weekend!
