During the slow season is when the parks like to get their annual refurbs done. At Islands of Adventure they’ve just completed work on Dudley Do-Right’s Ripsaw Falls and Popeye and Bluto’s Bilge-Rat Barges in Toon Lagoon. Now that things are all sparkly and new over there they’ve moved their attention to the Jurassic Park River Adventure and surrounding areas. Workers have been cleaning the rockwork at the big drop, painting posts and there are construction walls up all around the area. Everything is going to be all shiny and new just in time for Jurassic World to hit theaters this summer! See the pictures below.

Water effects have been turned off for the renovation
Construction walls stretched from Thunder Falls to the gift shop, blocking the entire “Splash Zone” walkway
More scaffolding poles and posts ready
Workers with sprayers
Working on the rocks on the ground near the Splash Zone
Not sure what this bright green wall is blocking near Camp Jurassic across from Kongstruction, but they have been re-painting columns and curbs around the area, so it might be related to that
