I was there a week after Rob and likewise I was surprised as to how busy it was. There was my first ever trip to IOA, so I simply assumed that was the norm. Thankly the single rider lanes kept my visit enjoyable. Overall I thought the park looked really nice. Althought I have to admit, I was a bit surprised at the number of tats on the princess in the Sinbad show. It seemed to take something away from the show, but maybe that's just me.
Does anyone else find it a *little* sleazy that the store opened so far ahead of the ride? I guess the fact that they have the walk around characters kind of makes up for it? Thanks for braving the cold for the update!
^ Yeah, it is kind of odd to be open now, but they are really seem to be trying hype up the ride so I guess it's not too bad of an idea.
The costume characters are awesome. I have yet to take a picture with one at USH because the lines are also so insanely long, even on super slow days. I think that this ride is going to be a huge hit for the park, even with Spider-Man at the same resort for the guests to compare it too. Though 95% won't even notice they are the same ride system, nor does it matter.
I had hear a rumor there might be some Transformer themed food options coming to the park, possibly taking over the monsters food place. Anyone know more about that?
Something is telling me that a similar thing also happened at another attraction here or at a different Universal park. Was there another shop that was open before the attraction somewhere? This really sounds familiar....
ps. John - did you get an extra long meet & greet with Optimus?
