Universal Orlando Resort (USO, IOA) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

I really wished they would reveal the height and length too.

Why? They just told us about a very immersive, one of the most immersive attractions and you're worried about height and length lol?!?

 

Also, I wonder if they are standing in part of the ride/queue? This should definitely be one of those attractions that have a different feel between riding in the daytime or at night. I can't wait!

They are catering to people who want an immersive Harry Potter adventure, not a bunch of roller coaster nerds who lather themselves in coaster stats. Honestly, WHO CARES what the height and length is??? Will that make it a better or worse ride? No.

I am simultaneously delighted by this side-splittingly hilarious phrase and horrified by the mental image it brings me. Thanks, Robb.

Way to make a first impression on me Mr. Alvey, the legend, which speaks...

 

Since when was I saying this ride would be better/worse based on its stats? I just want to know how high that spike is and how long the track will be. 50mph is quite a substantial speed for a “family coaster”.

You're welcome. It is also going to be your last impression because I have zero patience for people like you...

Nailed it.

 

 

I knew this coaster was going to be well themed, but it looks incredible how they're planting a full forest around it.

Right?! It's amazing how the whole area for the ride has been filled in with the greenery and water, too. It'll be so much fun flying around the trees and over the ponds.

As someone already mentioned, I think this thing is really going to be great at night! Especially now with all the trees. I honestly wasn’t expecting Universal to plant very many more trees than there are now so I’m very excited! I can’t wait to see what 1200 trees equates to.

Maybe you run into the Knights of Ni of "bring me a shrubbery!" fame. The last concept art illustration does look pretty fantastic. Night time rides will be amazing.

Good news for single riders, that line will probably flow fast.

Bad news is you're most likely going to end in a side-car.

 

I joke, and I know like Robb's pictures, other parks have motorbike/side-car seating but I would hate to be the grouper for this ride. I'm sure for smaller parks you can let people choose and send cars half empty but for the new Harry Potter ride... 'How many in your group? 4. 'Take rows 2 and 3. We all want motorcycle seats. So either the single rider line becomes essentially the 'side car line' or your the poor person telling people who've waited 1-2 hours to take a seat they don't want.

 

On the plus side at least with Universals strict locker policy, if you were paired with a single rider, someone can't quickly hop into your motorcycle seat while you're putting a bag onto the shelf.

While the coaster looks a bit on the flat side, the immersive themeing and all the different elements, including all the moments of twistiness, and its length will more than make up for it. Looks like quite an adventure. Never I thought I'd say I'm looking forward to this - but I am!

Encounter some of the wizarding world’s rarest magical creatures, such as a majestic Centaur, a swarm of mischievous Cornish Pixies, Fluffy, the three-headed dog – and even a creature that’s never been seen in the films

Is #whatsintheshed from Kings Island taking an Orlando vacation? I don't blame it.

 

Also, I love that there will be 1200 trees planted around this. The theming should be stellar! Feelings aside, sounds like it'll be a huge improvement at least theme/scenery-wise from the coaster(s) that shall not be named that previously resided in the area.

 

And I'm sure Potter fans will be get moist for this ride.

Maybe they can just put up a sign a la Dragons that instead says "choose thy position: sitting or bending over"

 

Looking forward to riding this at some point, and undoubtedly Universal is going to be f*cking slammed and is going to make tons of money this summer, per usual. I actually appreciate the fact that they've planted 1,200 trees. Universal is single-handedly doing more to fight climate change than the idiot in the white house.
