Just checked it out. Awesome. Can't wait. That left me wanting to see more.

It's very possible. Will this ride turn you upside-down? Probably not. But it can.

What I meant was since the vehicle is attached to the arm, I can't see it going in a complete circle like a roller coaster inversion. Still, if it is going to mimic flying as in the movies then I suspect there will be a LOT of dips, sweeps, and sudden starts and stops. Can't wait!!

Hagrid's Hut
An authentic replica from the Harry Potter films, guests will pass by Hagrid's hut on their way to the Flight of the Hippogriff family-friendly roller coaster.

Hagrid’s hut will be seen as part of a feature about The Wizarding World of Harry Potter on NBC's The Celebrity Apprentice this Sunday, April 4. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter grand opens on June 18.

The vertical axis can't move 360 degrees, but the horizontal can. Not saying it will, mind you, just that it could.

I loved Ellen's video! The songs she always plays in her videos are hilarious. I can't wait to see it for myself this year!

Now I see what you mean. I am starting to think that this ride is going to be a lot more thrilling than anyone ever imagined.
