    Margaritaville Orlando has named their new waterpark Island H2O Live and release a new park map. This video looks at all the new construction including new slide pieces, a 3rd slide tower that will house the new family raft slides and the first building that has gone vertical.

    New patents filed for Universal, no indication of specific parks as yet.



    A Jurassic World Gyrosphere Ride?
    Letís start with the obvious. Franchise producer Frank Marshall has mentioned in the past that Universal has wanted to make a ride based on the gyrosphere vehicles seen in Jurassic World and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. And here you go: a ride design that looks to place the rider within a spherical vehicle with a striking resemblance to whatís seen on the screen. The technical jargon describes a ride that would provide all the physical thrills of being bounced around in a giant glass ball by angry dinosaurs:

    Movement of the passenger support system, and thus, the passenger, within the annular structure, causes the sensation of airflow around the passengerís body (e.g., arms and legs) and may allow the passenger a heightened amusement ride experience. Additionally, relatively minor movement of the passenger support system may create additional forces on the riderís body due, in part, to the distribution of gravitational forces. The combination of physical effects such as airflow and g-forces, along with visual effects such as a visual effect device, screen, or facade may provide the passenger with an immersive amusement ride experience.


    A Zelda Horse-Riding Attraction?
    The second patent isnít quite as specific, and itís built to simulate the experience of riding a motorcycle or a horse. Hereís more:

    By positioning the rider in a facedown position or on a vehicle that, at least in some orientations, permits a downward gaze, the rider may experience a sensation and feeling of horseback riding, motorcycling, or the like. Additionally, the disclosed rider support assembly may allow the rider to experience sudden moments of positive and negative gravitational forces (e.g., g-forces) that enhance the sensation of riding or motorcycling, and provide a more pleasurable riding experience.

    So, what ride could we be looking at here? With Universal bringing Super Nintendo World to its parks in the next few years, I canít help but wonder if this will be themed to The Legend of Zelda, the iconic video game franchise about exploring a dangerous fantasy world, often on the back of your trusty steed. Itís still not clear where Super Nintendo World will open in Universal Orlando (if maybe that fourth unnamed park), but there have been additional rumors that Zelda will be spun off into its own land entirely, away from the Mario-centric core world (which will host a ride based around Mario Kart).

    Here is an update video of riders on Infinity Falls and how they change operations for the winter months. They have turned off the water curtain, all the waterfalls and the geysers to make the ride less wet for cooler days.
