That's properly stunning! blink.gif

Should look even better once they've got some flags and banners up to add colour to the rather grey pallet.

I have been watching this come along all this time with no excitement what-so-ever, but I have just booked to visit Florida in January and now am so excited about this.......that Robo-Coaster thing scares the stuff out of me though.....looking forward to the 1st reviews of that.

yes, i too was like "urgh" about it. im not sure if your feelings are because it'll sway the crap out of you (which is what ive been thinking), but because the harry potter land is mostly family oriented, i cant see it being too "turbulent" tongue.gif

Yeah, the swinging thing I thought may make me a bit sick......I was worried before but also thought its a family attraction so it will be toned down compared to those in the Dubai Mall. Then I read they have made that living tree thingy which gets a bit violent and then I got worried again!

hmm, i really cant see it being that intense. id put it on par with spiderman?

seriously. don't get worried. i can't see the park creating an attraction that is that intense that only a selection of people can ride it. ok, so its not gonna be like peter pans flight, but its not gonna be that thing in dubai mall either (i dont think) smile.gif

ok, so the land is now having very soft openings. the main ride "harry potter and the forbidden journey" is being a little big tempremental, but even still, people can still go inside the hogwarts castle (the que for the ride) and tour it, even when the ride is closed. actually, the que is like a ride anyway. it looks to be incredibly immersive.

anyway.

PICTURES - of the land/queline

and a video of a tour inside... immense!

I'm normally really crap and look at all the pictures of new rides and find everything out I can in advance but I'm really trying hard no to look at the Hogwarts pictures. I've failed multiple times and looked at Hogsmeade pictures. (I know some people working there and I'm waiting for them to turn up). I've also looked at ones of the DD's queue and it's absolutely rubbish. More or less completely bare compared to what was there before. Very disappointing.

yeah, i haven't seen loads of pics yet, but from what I've seen its quite sparse now compared to what it used to be. Hell... steven spielberg helped design the damn que for DD!

ah, go on. take a peek at the pics! i dont think it'll spoil anything really... only if you watch a POV of the ride (which i have) and it seems cool. i have done, because i dunno when i'll ever be able to ride it...

I really want to get out there this year and see it, but it all depends on the move. So fingers crossed. Hopefully be out before Universal give up on the Butterbeer and so on.

When I was in Florida I spent the whole year dropping suggestions into guest relations and leaving comments that they should have a British cast working there. Then I'd have gotten a job myself. Bit sad they didn't.
