Universal Orlando’s vast expansion property is showing new signs of life, with new roads appearing in the last couple weeks of June.
One significant new road intersects with Destination Parkway near the new Courtney at Universal Boulevard apartments, just up the road from UCF’s Rosen College of Hospitality. The unnamed road heads north into Universal’s property. Aerial photos from mid-June showed grading for the road, and it was recently paved.
Lots of activity could be seen on the property Friday, behind a chain-link fence and entrance guarded by security trucks. Dump trucks drove in and out, while bulldozers and other equipment leveled off piles of dirt in the distance.
Imagine never knowing what a roller coaster is, let alone what having "fun" means.
For the Ugandan children who are part of Berakhah, that all changed one warm, June day. The chorus of mainly orphans are traveling and spreading awareness through their chorus, for the vulnerable children in rural Uganda. The children were treated to a day at Six Flags Over Texas and had a transformative experience, and gave them a chance to truly be care free children enjoying the day. The excitement and awe was shared by the chorus, guests, and even the staff. See firsthand what happened when they went from never seeing a coaster before, to riding the Biggest Thrills in Texas!
This is the world’s first racing version of its popular Boomerang ride, currently in 15 parks worldwide.
The Family Boomerang Racer is a duelling coaster where each coaster follows a different track layout. This added complexity has ensured that guests are eager to try out both coasters as each provides a different experience.
Catering for twice the capacity of the Family Boomerang, the ride also delivers double the thrills. All thanks to various interactive elements ie. sections where both trains encounter, duel and race each other – adding an extra layer of fun.

PIGEON FORGE, TN
Dolly Parton's theme park, Dollywood, is reportedly being sued after a mother of two claims to have suffered a spinal injury on one of the rides.
According to TMZ, a husband and wife have filed suit against Dollywood over injuries they say the wife suffered while riding the RiverRush Water Coaster at Dollywood Splash Country last summer. TMZ reports that the couple took their two daughters to the theme park in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., and they say what started out as a fun outing turned into a serious injury.
Dollywood's website calls the attraction "Tennessee's first and only water coaster," saying it "races through the trees four stories in the air as you experience four drops along 1,175 feet of track."
