Universal Orlando pushes back opening for Hollywood Rip, Ride, Rockit
Written by Robert Niles
This shouldn't surprise anyone, given the wall of silence that Universal Orlando has offered all questions about when its Hollywood Rip, Ride, Rockit roller coaster would debut, but Universal's now confirmed that it will not open this spring.Tweet
Instead, Universal's pushed the opening date back into summer, according to several sources. (Here's one that got its story up earlier.)
Universal folks and fans, give us your thoughts and estimates on HRRR, in the comments.
Update: Now SeaWorld is pushing *up* the opening date for Manta. Look for a soft opening the first week in May. Trip reports, with photos, will be greatly appreciated, as I won't be in Orlando that week.
