... wow :lol:


The Roots are a Grammy-Award winning, platinum-selling band, and Questlove is an incredibly accomplished producer and musician with a long list of credits. They're definitely more than just a show band! Before they got the Fallon Gig, they had huge hits in the Hip Hop/RnB charts, but they're multi-genre and dable in other kinds of music. "You Got Me" with Erykah Badu even has a little 90s Drum N' Bass. Check out "Things Fall Apart" to start - classic album. Much respect for Questlove & The Roots!

Cool, I never knew that.

PS: Very quietly, Hagrid's seems to have gotten to the point where it's running reliably all day like a normal coaster.

^ Forgive Bill, y'all. He is one of the best dudes but the worst taste in music.

^^I waited 75 minutes for Hagrid’s the other night (the ride did not close to capacity before park close) despite a posted 120 minute wait. It has definitely gotten better.

^ It was the same for me a few weekends ago. I asked the employee at the entrance if they'd close the queue early and they said they'd only do it if it were in excess of 3-4 hours.
