For the ride in Florida, I know it was going under construction in march. My sister was there the last day before they started.
As for the movie (now that I’ve seen it), it wasn’t bad. It was a little long and probably would have been better if it was a self-contained film like the first one. There’s a lot of slimy, snakey things so watch out if you’re sqeamish. Overall, I enjoyed it and they didn’t do the TBC ending too badly. It’s definately worth seeing as it’s much better than some of the movies out.
