Ripsaw Falls update?

Universal Orlando: Just want an update on the status of Ripsaw

Due to the fire has USF shut down the ride for a refurb or is it up and running. My girlfriend and I are heading down there on Feb 27th and she has never been there so I really want her to experience all of the rides IOA has to offer.

It's still closed for coughpreviouslyscheduledmaintencecough. ;)

I'm thinking they have to get it fixed by mid march or there wont be enough time to refurb the popeye rafts before peak spring break...and trust me, that ride needs some help right now.
That's the thing though - once ripsaw opens, popeye will close for refurb. So you will likely miss out on one or the other.

We'll be there mid-June. Will everything be up and running by then?

Yesterday, they were working on it. There was a big crane and stuff, but it looked as if they had made little progress

June is high season. No theme park in Orlando will have anything closed in summer unless it's beyond their control ie. a ride breaking down.

I have heard from people that called Guest Services that it will open the first week of March.
