From that document,
Located in Hogwarts castle, Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey™ is a
thrilling new state-of-the-art attraction that will bring the magic, characters
and stories of Harry Potter to life in ways never before experienced. The queue through Hogwarts castle is an attraction in itself.

Waiting in line should be fun for this ride.

I am really looking forward to this! The one bad part that I think is that the GP will think DD is a new coaster & the lines will be much longer than they normally are because of the new theme & name. Is DD still open? I am going next Saturday & will like to ride it.

Wow, that is a pretty cool backstory. I am impressed with the detail they go into, especially considering that a lot of people probably are not aware of this and will greatly enjoy the event without ever reading or knowing it.

By the way, there is a contest you can enter to win horror DVDs or a Sharp tv on that website.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

Will DD definitely be closed by November, as my presumption goes?

She turned me into a donkey! I got better...
