Universal Orlando Resort (USO, IOA) Discussion Thread

P. 611: Full Halloween Horror Nights 2021 lineup revealed!

Recommended Posts

^I was wondering if the 'weird' trains would add more problems to the queue with people fighting over wanted the bike vs. the sidecar, but then I don't remember our group super caring in Australia so maybe it will work?

We also had ERT on it with only about 20-something people so I think everyone got to ride whatever they wanted. This coaster is also not quite as high of a profile as Potter either. I can tell you that riding in the side car and the bike are two very different ride experiences and Universal will probably just use that to get people to re-ride.

Yeah I've already accepted the fact that as long as I'm with Brit I'll never get the window seat on a plane and I'll never get the motorbike car on Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure. It's a small price to pay

Only Hulk and Rockit had the metal detectors and cell phone ban if I remember correctly.

I have been randomly and inconsistently told on both Mummy and Gringotts that cell phones MUST go in lockers. They don't seem to say this all the time, and it has only happened once on each ride on different visits (although within the past year) and it's almost as though if they see you enter the line with a phone in your hand, they will tell you to put it away in a locker, but if it is in your pocket, they don't.

 

It makes no sense.

^ That sounds accurate to me, at least from my experience. When I go on those two, I usually just hide my phone while entering the line and I'm good to go. Of course, they want you to use lockers but if it looks like you don't have anything on you they don't stop you.

With several sources stating that the train cars will be like Wave Breaker at Sea World Antonio I am wondering if anyone here has experience with the comfort of these? It seems like these seats will be encompassed with the bike and side car shell.

I'm excited to see this coaster once it opens. My wife and I will be in Orlando in September so we may have to swing by IOA to ride this thing. Funny thing is, I showed my wife a picture of Elissa in the side car on the ride at Australia and asked her if she remembered that ride when we went on the TPR Australia tour. She said "We didn't ride that ride. I would have remembered riding it." Then I showed her some pictures from the TPR Index Page and you can see us riding it!! I guess it was such a great experience, she blocked it from her memory.

Look, not gonna lie - Every "motorbike" coaster I've ridden... EXCEPT FOR TRON, has been kind of a "meh" and "forgettable" experience. Maybe Universal can pull it off, I'm not sure, but I'm still not quite over them removing Dueling Dragons and I won't be by the time this opens either, so this ride has a LOT to live up to. And considering I'm not a "Harry Potter Person" either, this coaster has to be one of the best damn things I've ever ridden for it to honestly impress me.

 

We shall see....

I think this will be something Potter fans will love, but us coaster nerds will be bummed the experience isn’t as good as dueling dragons.

 

Universal has to milk that cash cow for all it’s worth.
