We’ll start our photo update with a look at the soon to open Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit roller coaster in Universal Studios. They’ve taken some of the construction walls down at the end of 57th Street allowing a better look at the twisted steel at that end of the coaster.
The cars weren’t being tested while I was there, but you can see a video of them running in our previous blog post.
Some cars from the movie Fast & Furious 4 were on display on Delancy Street. I’m not sure how long these will be on display. The Fast & Furious girls weren’t around when I came by as the park was about to close. The park map says you can also play movie trivia and win prizes here.
If you look close at these coins near The Coin Mint store in The Lost Continent you’ll see they say Mardi Gras on them. They’re the coin souvenirs thrown with the beads during the Mardi Gars parades in Universal Studios.
We stopped in The Endangered Species Store on our way through CityWalk and much to my son’s dismay, they’ve removed all the glow-in-the-dark items they used to sell. The Global Candle Gallery has taken its place. You can watch as they make designer candles that glow when lit. Hold each candle up to a light to see what color it glows.
