Next time you post here try actually READING THE POST YOU ARE RESPONDING TO before you respond as it will make you sound less stupid to those who are reading your posts.

Putting aside that the whole point of this image was to send the message of "we are building a ROLLER COASTER in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter... yes a ROLLER COASTER is what our next attraction will be..."


And that being said, if you knew nothing about this attraction, you wouldn't look at this poster here and think "screen ride"

Or what about this piece of concept art...

So to your comment, just showing a piece of "roller coaster track" doesn't always mean it WILL be a roller coaster! :lol: :lmao:

Yeah definitely think it's a bit odd with knowing how strict she is about everything Potter. I'm a casual Harry Potter fan, I've seen the movies and I enjoy the areas in the parks but I really don't remember those blue pixies in any of the forest scenes in the movies but I definitely could be wrong.

If this is going to be themed after Hagrid and his cycle or the blue floating car I am surpised they didn't show those in the poster instead.

Yes, that was my thought exactly. The coaster side of me is totally "okay" with that poster and I'm happy they are confirming it, but the "theme park" person in me just found it really, really odd that they would use the "ride system" and not the "ride theme" to be the very first official image they release for the new attraction.

I'm not complaining about it.. I just thought it was an odd choice given the property.

Agreed, I really have no doubts that this ride should be a ton of fun. Those pixies cause some chaos and there's so many cool things they can take from the forbidden forest to incorporate with this ride.

It's crazy how many awesome new attractions Florida keeps getting. We haven't been able to get down there this year but between this, and everything Disney and the Busch parks have been doing we absolutely have to get a trip in next year.

Fair enough, I'm not the brightest bulb and I tend to browse while working so I don't always pay enough attention.

I hope they spritz you in the face with water at the end of the ride. You know, to be consistent with the rest of the park.

That's very odd to me as well, and it sort of takes away from the "mystique" of the theme. I can see if they didn't want to add Hagrid's motorcycle or the flying car just yet so they don't give away too much about the experience, but they could of easily just posted an ominous trackless picture of the forest or something and conveyed the same message. :?r

They could have put a trail of smoke there,
which could be either Hagrid's motorbike's, or the car's eco-friendly exhaust.
Or something else, of course.

Wonder how Ms. Rowling reacted when she saw the poster?
Obviously, she agreed to it, since they've posted it. But still. :wink:

She has markedly loosened up on her infamous control issues the last few years.
