Our Jacob Sundstrom filed a USH construction update a few days ago, but much has happened at the park since then, according to multiple reports from our friends on Twitter.

In addition to the demolition of the Gibson Amphitheater concert venue, the park's taken out the Mummy's Tomb experience on the Studio Tour.

In addition to those removals, the park also has been tearing down the Curious George play area and the Studio Souvenirs store. Universal's billion-dollar "Evolution" plan for the park also calls for new attractions on the sites of the Special Effects Stage and Waterworld shows, though there's no word yet on when those might come down, or what might replace them. Work continues now on Super Silly Fun Land and Despicable Me on the old Terminator site.
At some point, work will expand into CityWalk, which is getting expanded parking, and the theme park's entrance, where Universal plans a new hotel.
