Hey again! It's Utopia with another edition of USO News!

Unfortunately, the press conference schedulded for yesterday seems to have either been cancelled, rescheduled, or extremely confidential since I can't seem to find any info on what was discussed anywhere online. So this is gonna be a much shorter update, haha.

First off, construction on the Jurassic World roller coaster in Islands of Adventure (rumored to be named "Velocicoaster") seems to be coming along well, with the entire track installed and work beginning on the queue/foliage surrounding it. In an odd turn of events, Universal have yet to officially announce the coaster's name or opening date, possibly as a method of keeping crowds low at the parks.

However, it's unfortunately been announced that the development and construction of Epic Universe has been indefinitely delayed, due to budgeting issues. It's unknown when construction will start again, or if it will meet the proposed 2023 opening date.

Anyway, that's just about everything, thanks for reading! :D
