The Universal website just released a few nuggets of information about WWoHP for us Potterholics to devour. Nothing that answers any of our questions. Just some interviews with Alan Gilmore about the design.

We will be there during that time. I would have loved to see the show before we left, but being there is even better! Here's hoping for soft openings in the very near future.

This waiting on the grand opening is just draaaaaaaging on and on and on.
I don't think I've ever been so impatient for a review of a ride in a theme park, ever.
And I won't even get to see it until November.

I'm going to guess that prior to June 18th there will be a ton of youtube video out there of the ride. Many fans will be shooting video during the soft openings.

This is the main entrance and the end of The Lost Continent. There is another entrance thru Jurassic park but the experience won't be the same.
Once WWoHP opens, I think they will dismantle the temporary bridge beween Lost Continent and Jurassic Park

Only a fool who wants to risk:
1)losing their camera/phone/whatever
2)meeting security at the end of the ride who will make them delete the video
3)having their ride/video interrupted by spiels saying "viedotaping is PROHIBITED" at several points in the ride
4)having their video pulled from youtube and their account/IP banned from youtube
5)any combination of the above or any other possibility that may not have been mentioned

There is a rough sketch of HP. The temp bridge connects Lost Continent to Jurassic Park, for the duration of construction (afterwards, who knows?), the tree looking building on the left of Hogsmeade was the old Enchanted Oak Tavern, and it is now the Three Broomsticks/Hogs Head Pub.

Hope this helps

From what I read somewhere, there is NO PLANS to remove the bridge that got installed from JP to Lost Continent..to much traffic, and they want to allow ppl who want to skip the bottleneck in HP the chance to do so

I think that will be great during the opening weeks if they didn't remove the bridge.

But that raises more questions, like will they put another Jurassic Park Arch? Will they make it more permanent feeling, because right now you are going through a backstage gate, and going over paths in Jurassic Park (or am I imagining this? If I remember correctly, the minor ones from Skipper Boat Tours). Also it seems to me like this would be much more profitable to Universal to remove it, considering you aren't going through all the games of Lost Continent, and all the shops in Hogsmeade that they just spent a fortune putting in.

Well done towing the company line, but he's right. It is going to show up on YouTube very quickly.

You are correct...you can still see the loading area below the bridge.

I used to think this about other new attractions, but somehow they ended up on youtube. I'm amzaed at how some people can garner video on certain rides.

I think Universal will be guarding whatever is in this baby as long as they can. They will have plenty of people's vids taken off of youtube for the first couple of months. Then there will be someone who flies under the radar somehow that gets a million hits and the thinking will be "oh well it's free advertising". It took about two months for Disaster vids to stick.
