Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit now has Express

Universal Orlando: You can skip the line now.

This morning an Express line was added to Rip Ride Rockit. Hard to believe it's been nearly 4 years since it opened and no Express. The only thing I fear is it will have even more capacity issues, since the ride loads slow and single rider is always backed up. What are your thoughts on this?

At least it has express. Give it a few months.

I wonder how it's been going with Express today. Hopefully this doesn't create a capacity issue like Fastpass does to Omnimovers.

Great news! One more reason to stay on site, but one less reason to consider Cabana Bay.

Great news, suprised it took nearly 4 years, at this rate at 25 , I guess I will be drawing social security by the time forbidden journey has express. And adding to James's point, without free unlimited express, what exactly is the advantage to staying at cabana bay vs. a nearby off-site hotel?

With the storm today the banner flew off. Srprisingly, the ride didn't.

RRR was always one of those rides we would hit right before the park closed since it is better at night (IMO). Looking forward to some riding right when the sun goes down and the Orlando sky is all orange and purple.

I have a great picture of Mel's right after sunset. It is my favorite of all the pics I have ever taken at UOR, including the behind the scenes tour of MIB with the lights on.

A little bit of a tangent here but some of the Simpsons character banners got damaged too along with trees and construction walls getting knocked down.

Now that's a storm I'd love to have seen. Mother Nature clearly wants to send a message to Universal about this Express pass idea.

I saw a picture of the wall getting knocked down, but didn't know the banners got torn up.
