The sign you refer to at the entrances says "Hogsmeade: Mind the Spell Limit" It has a cat on it I think.

14 dollars for motorcycle parking! Do you at least get closer parking? It should be half the costs since motorcycles take up half the space of a car (half being conservative).

Dueling Dragons Now Closed To Be Turned Into Dragon Challenge
From Orlando United:
I can confirm it is indeed closed as of today. I was at the park tonight and it was surrounded by a green construction wall and the DD sign was still up.


From Screamscape:
Park News - (2/15/10) A reader claims they contacted Universal Orlando customer service regarding any possible attraction closures during their trip and were told that Dueling Dragons would be closed from 2/27/10 through to 3/16/10.


Many over at Orlando United confirmed that the Dueling Dragons have closed February 27th to be turned into Dragon Challenge. During it's closure the ride will go through a new paint job (rumored), get new trains (rumored), & the queue line is supposed to be finished.

$5 says that at least 10 people of the GP will think that the park got rid of Dueling Dragons and replaced it with Dragon Challenge. :lmao:

Does anybody know exactly what will be the "headline" attraction in the new Harry Potter area at IOA? I heard some sort of motion simulator type ride.

Some sort of weird hybrid of Spiderman and Indiana Jones that's on a robot arm.

Way Close to Knoebels!

I'm curious as to whether or not they'll expand on this area in the future with any major attractions or just leave it as is. Not sure how much room they have to work with
