The raptors are still wrapped and the crew is working around the base of the raptors again today.

The “Outfitters” lettering has been added to the newly refreshed sign, but the dinosaur skull in the center is still missing. The new sign is very eye-catching with bright colors and bold lettering. We think it looks great.

It’s Friday, so it’s a lot busier today than it has been the last few days.

More menu signs have been added around the tasting booths as well as registers moved out away from the actual booth. This helps speed up the line by placing an order at the register and then getting in line to pick up your food rather than ordering directly at the window.

The Hello Kitty face mask is available in the Hello Kitty store for $8 each or 3 for $20.
