    Here is the latest update on the Guardians coaster. More steel has went up on the main coaster building and the connector structure has most of its steel in place. The old Universe of Energy buildings continues to be gutted and turned into a shell.

    Sea World Orlando's Infinity Falls construction walls have come down with the ride still testing. The new restaurant and interactive learning areas have opened to park guest. The ride is really one of the best looking river rapids rides I have seen. Rumors are the ride will soft open within the next week or so.

    Epcot's Guardians of the Galaxy coaster has track supports going in between the main show building and the loading building. They are also working on the connecting enclosure structure between the two buildings. This is the location for the current track supports. I would expect to see coaster track installed within the connector building before it is fully enclosed. And yes, the main show building is as massive as it looks.

    Construction is moving along on the Harry Potter coaster. Theming is starting to show up on the new structure that the coaster will do a drop/curve in and will also be the final scene before entering the station.

    Here is a look at the completed Fast and Furious ride building and queue line. The building really fits its surrounds (San Francisco waterfront) very well. The queue line moves through a warehouse setting before entering the pre-shows. The story for the ride is that guest are on a party bus that is being chased while it travels to the final party location. The ride itself has received some mixed review but my family really enjoys the ride and most park guests seem to being have fun on the ride. I think that probably sums up the ride, its fun. Its not Universal's best ride, but its definitely not the worst ride.

    This looks like a really beautifully done park. How is the Flinstone's river ride?
