They got delayed by construction problems as it was supposed to open this weekend (June 21st). They were still working on the dragon last week as it wasn't yet completed, so they had to push back the official opening.

I would imagine they will have "soft openings" between now and July 8th, especially seeing the holiday weekend will come between now and then.

I was hoping for soft openings this week while we are here, but none yet. An employee told me they were not going to have any. Not sure how true?

Well, I don't know what they classify as "soft opening" per se, but they have been running the rides in testing modes for some folks anyway; I've seen the notes, blogs, and videos about it all.

It may just be employees or employee families and such, but they've definitely had some issues with the Gringott's bank ride on which they are attempting to work out some bugs in the system. It's apparently got some problems, which is another reason why the opening was probably delayed.

I just read where employees get to test it out starting wed.

We go back to Universal tomorrow so I will keep my fingers crossed.
