Went through both of them this past weekend with almost no wait (at park opening) they were pretty good houses the hallways were a little brighter than usual . The flashlights they directed you with worked ( not the case in the past) Overall very well done and very Professionally done.

It's not alone in that.

If I ever have something really popular on my site I might just block North America for a while...

Universal Orlando hit capacity today, and people in the park didn't seem to be happy with their in-park experience.

They've regularly been hitting capacity over the weekends. I wonder how much of that is because of the continuation of a Halloween event, even though it is limited. Ride times according to the app at about 5pm today were mostly under an hour, except Shrek 4D for some reason.
