  1. I don't think it is too much Harry Potter as there are some really cool experiences to pull from these two lands such as the Forbidden Journey, Escape from Gringotts, Hogwarts Express, the new gifts from the shops, and the new food and drink creations. This just shows what Universal is capable of doing. They did add Despicable Me and Transformers in the past two years. They are building something new at Islands of Adventure over by Jurassic Park as well probably something for 2016. Universal keeps on expanding and adding one of a kind experiences.
  2. ^I know!!! It will be so depressing. Oh well though. It will still be incredible to experience and the ride itself will probably be just brilliant! I can't wait!
  3. I am really hoping that there will be Passholder Previews for Diagon Alley. Also, how long is Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts? How does it compare to the Forbidden Journey?
  4. WOW! I am really hoping there will be Passholder Previews because I don't want to wait any longer!!! Does anyone know how much the interactive wands will cost? The regular wands cost like $30 so I can only imagine how much I will be spending at this new world
  5. I saw Jimmy Fallon last night and am even more excited for the new Diagon Alley at Universal. There is a new youtube video that shows the magic windows and casting spells! I will be at the park tomorrow. I'm sure they will announce the opening day later this week but do you think there will be any passholder previews like they did for Transformers?? The detail in this new land is incredible and can't wait any longer for it to open! Here is the video with the magic windows and cast spelling! Here is information about the new interactive wands! http://blog.universalorlando.com/whats-new/interactive-wands-the-wizarding-world-of-harry-potter/?social_id=social_20140617_26141036
  6. That fence will last one month. Then it will probably be covered in people writing junk all over it.....
  8. I feel like it will be similar to Verbolten as well. I feel like you will depart on your voyage and it will be nice and calm. Then a raging storm comes along and you're launched into a building with effects that make it feel like you're in the middle of it. It could have a drop effect but then you'll be launched out and the finale will have a water effect of some kind.
  9. I might be completely insane or something but I want Busch Gardens to go big with their next ride that might be too expensive for them. If they could tear down Gwazi and build a Volcano Mountain in its place. The Volcano can host either a roller coaster or a simulator ride. I was thinking it could be themed to like African Safari tours, with lots of theming inside the mountain with lots of African scenery and then something goes wrong. Then you're inside the volcano and it is about to erupt and you blast out the side like Everest or Journey to the Center of the Earth. I know it would probably never happen...but still. It would be such a great icon for the park, aimed for families, and be a lot of fun!
  10. I don't know if anyone has heard of the water slide Music City Racer at Nashville Shores. It sits pretty high and there are just two drops to get to the bottom. The first one is a lot shorter than the second. When it opened in 2008, you went upwards after the first drop similar to this slide. However, due to the amount of people that would get stuck per day as they wouldn't be able to go over the "hump," they straightened the section in 2010. It was a very cool experience to go up and considering the "hump" on this slide is at the bottom of all of those drops, I'm sure a lot of people wouldn't get stuck as compared to the Music City Racer.
  11. I don't know if this was mentioned but is Gatekeeper running better this year? Like is it rough? Do the vest restraints lock and tighten?
  12. I've visited Blizzard Beach about 2 weeks ago and noticed some land clearing around the area. Does anyone know what this is for? Also, I went to Typhoon Lagoon today and noticed that there is as well land clearing but it is more outside of the park near the road. It goes almost to where Crush N Gusher is though. I'm assuming this construction by Typhoon is for Disney Springs but what for? Are they moving the road? Along I4, there is also some land clearing near the various exits and into nearby resorts. Some of them seem to pretty large in clearing space. I am assuming for hotels? They will look to be pretty big hotels then...
  13. Maybe the No. 7 on FireChaser Express represents the 7th coaster at Dollywood in operation right now.
  14. I can see it being very hot once it warms up. There looks to be not a lot of shade with their new expansions. The water park especially. Those pathways will burn your feet!
  15. Everyone will need to check this article out! Lots of details about Diagon Alley!!! http://www.usatoday.com/experience/america/theme-parks/diagon-alley-gringotts-wizarding-world-harry-potter/9125149/
  16. ^My thoughts exactly! I believe a Madagascar area would be perfect. There should be a water ride that isn't like the one in Singapore though. This one needs drops and such. A water ride similar to Splash Mountain would be perfect. You could retheme Woody Woodpecker easily, a new show, new restaurant, etc. I believe a Madagascar land would be perfect!
  17. What is the highest capacity this ride can handle per hour? I know some Mack Rides have high ride capacity.
  18. Are these restraints/trains better than the older ones that are found on Montu? Are the viewing experiences different? Does it feel different?
  19. ^ Ok thanks for clarification. I never heard talk about your legs being strapped down like Manta and I was wondering well looks like my legs will be hangin'
  20. Will there be ankle guards to keep your legs in place for Falcon's Fury? I don't see them on the seats. Will your feet just hang down or...
  21. That sign looks amazing! IMO. I know Kings Island has a big winner with this ride! I really like what Cedar Fair has done over the years with their parks.
  22. I kind of hoped that the attraction would be an expansion to Jurassic Park. I am just not a big fan of King Kong and it seems that that character is getting old to me with lots of movie remakes, etc. I am just kinda bored of King Kong.
