I think it is going to be a type G3 robocoaster moving 360º and on a track.
(Disney's is type G1). The following report says G2 but the G2 moves on a steady track and the G3 moves on a continuous track

2010 - The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - (3/13/10) I’ve heard that the
Sorting Hat may be part of the queue for Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey. While this could end up being an animatronic, I’ve also heard rumors that it could be playey by a live actor… much like the talking Fountain. Meanwhile if your curious to see just what the ride cars may look like, check out these drawings discovered at IAAPA a couple of years ago at the Kuka display.

I wonder if you could upgrade to a annual pass at the park and get into WWoHP?

Nothing has been announced for passholders yet. But you can definitely upgrade and get into passholder events.

Then that might just be my backup plan. It really wouldn't cost that much more for the upgrade. If they happen to be open our week in mid-May for pass holders, we will become pass holders.

We purchased the Kroger $89 tickets, would it be possible to upgrade these to an AP and if so how would we do it? If we could do it, we could possibly keep our May 19-24 reservation if an AP preview was available.

Yes, just go to guest services when you get there. Also, because you are a Georgia resident, I think the AP's are cheaper for you. Make sure you ask!

Thanks! This gives me hope and another excuse to visit again.

Talking Question about Ollivander's!

How do you guys expect the wand will choose you?
Other than the most expensive wand will become yours in most cases, what do you think will happen?
I've heard that they've supposed to be using cutting-edge technology, but I was wondering about your theories.

I would imagine that the seller will suggest a wand and you will try to cast a spell of some sort with it. The spell won't quite work for several wands and then all of a sudden it will and there will be special effects that are dazzling.

Talking Sorry, Long Post is Long

I can't believe it, moving pictures, filmed uhhh....film?, wands, cloaks...
It's like a dream I had once.... (lol)
Expect me to have pictures and reviews of what happened, and most likely a video with some other people with "the mysterious ticking noise". If not, then I'll be!
Plus with the frog chorus, this should be epic.
Going on the 5-10th of June.
Yes, it will be expensive, but I'll most likely have a Hufflepuff house robe set and a quiddich set and a wand.
Plus I've got to get something for a friend of mine who's pretty jealous. I wish I could get her a wand, but it appears that would not work.
For some reason, she wants cockroach clusters instead. *pretends that she's not gonna get her a bag full of vomit flavored only every flavor beans*

Speaking of which, kinda offtopic, but the grape jelly and the grass flavored ones are the best! And so are the Drooble's best blowing gum....

I might get a pair of quiddich goggles just so I can wear them all about!

Wonder what the remembralls will be like...

Anyways, back on topic. Last time I went to universal, they had only the iron wringings of the castle up, and you wouldn't even know what it was unless you were in Jurassic park and saw the sign. It's come a long way since then, and I can't WAIT!!!!!
