I did not like Curious George at all. I thought it just wasn't a strong enough brand. I'm really excited for more Simpsons!

Lots of walls down at USH! And...vertical construction at Harry Potter!

Two of the games at the front of the queue

the three games to the side of the building where the balloon pop game used to be

Two more of the games in front of the building

The construction wall has come down in front of Minion Mayhem

The other side...Miss Hattie's and Super Silly Fun Land remained walled off.

Check out Gru's neighborhood! Front lawns and everything...looks just like the movie.

The VIP dining building (Moulin Rouge) got a fresh coat of paint.

...and for all you construction/harry potter geeks out there...you can see some steel up in the back of this photo (sorry it's so far away, the tram was already closed when I took it from the Bridge)

It all looks really really good! Can't wait for the games to open. Also, I really wish they would bring back that crepe place they used to have near/at (?) the VIP dining. It was the highlight of my trip when I was younger.

There's already a Crepe place at CityWalk. They may not see that as a necessity considering that. Speaking of which, I've never eaten at the crepe place at CityWalk! That's pretty shameful considering how much I go to USH. I should fix that next time I go.

I haven't been to USH since the semester started for me but will once DM opens up. The new games look very nice and so does SSFL! I'm looking forward to seeing them in action as well as Springfield.

Something else to throw out there: I've heard that there should be some soft opens for DM:MM in the next week or two.

I like how they've rethemed the games in Hollywood and Florida. I don't play them myself, but the "generic" games always looked a bit tacky at theme parks.

^ I agree. At least they don't do anything to ruin the park atmosphere like what those games tend to do. Excited to see vertical construction start. When is the expected opening for Hollywood's Potter Land?

I love the Sideshow You game that looks lifted right out of Simpson's Tapped Out :b In fact, I love the names of all the games!
