As we made our way around the park, we noticed a lot of Team Members were still wearing face coverings while working outside.
Fans of Universal Studios retro merchandise are in luck. This black shirt features the retro logo and is covered in neon paint splatters on both the front and back. If you look closely, you’ll notice they all have their own unique paint pattern. The shirt is $28 and you can find it in multiple stores, including the Universal Legacy Store and the Universal Studios Store.
Crowds weren’t bad for a Saturday morning and many of the attractions had low wait times..
Restaurants around the parks have removed the dividers between tables now. Hopefully we will see higher capacity at restaurants for the summer.
Over at Islands of Adventure, we made our way over to VelociCoaster. The attraction was at a 55 minute wait and getting busier throughout the morning. Umbrellas have been added to the extended queue to provide a little shade for guests waiting in line.
A new specialty drink has been added to the menu at the Watering Hole. The Watering Hole is one of our favorite spots at Universal Orlando, so we will be back to try the Fossilizer soon.
The refurbishments in Toon Lagoon are making progress quickly. The areas with water features are being repaired and look really good so far.
We have a feeling that Storm Force Accelatron could reopen sometime soon for the summer. The warning signs by the entrance were removed after the attraction closed last year, but now they have returned. This looks like a good sign.
That’s all for this visit to the Universal Orlando Resort. Thanks for joining us around the parks today and be sure to stay tuned to Universal Parks News Today for more updates!
