Nothing special, though, these few from that fan site show that scaffolding has come up around the major tower/turret, great hall roof, and the awkward cement box that everyone think to be part of the queue.

Aside from the height of the building, the side next to Flight of the Hippogriff is deceiving to the eye: the fact is that part is likely to only be the major gift shop as you exit.

This is now the entrance to the queue. You just shoot straight through into the Ice section of the line and a Team Member will ask which side you want to ride on. The inside of that area has also been walled off.
