Thats funny as hellodolly.
Even more pictures here.
And what if Potter doesnt deliver? What then Universal? They have this one chance to capture the worlds attention, and they'll have it...what happens, when the world is watching, and they dont knock it out of the park?

For sure there is a lot riding on this, I think they will knock it out of the park.

Looks to me like they've already knocked it out of the park. And the world has been watching and the world has been amazed.

As far as I'm concerned, Uni knocked it out of the park when they started FOTL. Everything there is top notch. I'm not a bit worried about reaction to WWOHP. They're owned by a studio for God's sake. Uni knocks it out of the park w/out Harry Potter-that's just icing on the cake.

Thanks for all the great new pics! I still can't imagine what it's all going to look like once it's complete. Very exciting.

It's crazy that it's set to open in just a few months and we don't have big overhyped press released detailing the big attraction at all yet.

Ride Heights

I am starting to get a little concerned about the height requirements in this land. If this ride is using high technology, it may also make my kids not able to ride it. One of them is already not tall enough to ride the Dueling Dragons ride if they keep it where it is. Given this is a land for Harry Potter Fans (a lot of kids), has anyone heard any suggestions around this piece? I am just concerned because I am getting my kids really excited and now wonder if I need to tone it down.

In Legoland their stationary 'Robocoaster', which is the same technology to be used, has a height restriction of 40". However if you're under 55" then you need to be with someone who is. Don't know if it'd be any different, but i can't see why it should.

There's some info here about the Robocoaster and concepts which are soon to be implemented. Might be something similar to what we'll see
