    Well it looks like there is an official date for the ride which is a couple of weeks after the soft opening. I think the video is the same teaser but now with official date.

    Well, I said a month ago that the opening will be May 25, but no one believed me

    If you bought a pass and got the "buy a day and get 2012 free" then you can use that for the early bit May 4-6th. You have to have that though...there is the option to just buy the day and not get the year pass. Which makes no sense why anyone would want to do that because they're both the same price, but whatever. My understanding is that they'll stop selling the year admission pass though BEFORE May. I can't confirm that though. I've only heard it from friends that have been to Universal before. But also, you need to know that if you can't make it down for the early opening, that blackout dates still apply and May 26th, 27th and 28th are blacked out unless you pay for the "no blackout dates" ticket...which i think is like an extra 32 dollars. Now, the ride opens officially on the if you want to bother with that rush and the lines that'll come from a brand new ride, you can go on that day. Otherwise, i'd suggest getting there for the early showing. It isn't really being massively advertised.
