Actually, from everything I have read, it's not opening until the end of March.

I've also heard that it's opening March 28th. Apparently the drop has been altered a little.

The drop has been altered how? I sure hope they didn't make it less intense.

From what I've seen and others have said it seems like the beginning part of the drop has been raised. The angle at the start of the drop has changed a little but I doubt it will affect the ride negatively.

I was there the 12th and it was still closed!

I'm *guessing* that they "flattened" the airtime BUMP inside the shed....supposedly guests were hitting their heads, ducking to try and avoid getting wet...
If you go on a water ride, expect to get a little wet...first seat dividers, now this....I'm just hopeful they don't go to the extremes taken at Disney (on Flash Mountain)....stupid OTSRs....;)
Seriously, though, the drop likely HAS been altered...and it CAN'T be for the better...but we can HOPE that the changes are relatively subtle, since Dudley was clearly one of the top-rated flume rides out there...

From the pictures I have seen, and from comments made by people who have seen it, it is apparently at the top of the drop that the change occurred. They said it was a bit higher, so it doesn't have the same curved drop it used to have.
