It's not too early for the silly season

I've made a couple of updates to our What's Under Construction listings, to add the upcoming Giga Coaster at Kings Dominion, as well as the new Sesame Street play area (replacing Land of Dragons) at Busch Gardens Tampa.

Dune Raiders at Legoland California will be opening this weekend, and Creature from the Black Lagoon at Universal Studios Hollywood next week.

As for Universal Studios Florida's Hollywood Rip, Ride, Rockit? I've quit guessing on that one. Test runs have been happening, but no word yet from the park on a media day.

Remember, you can add missing and upcoming attractions to the listings on any park page. Or e-mail me with changes. Thanks!

RRR is now doing daily test runs, so its looking a lot better.

Will head over there this week and check on the condition of the landscaping.
