Can we not upload our own pictures? I made a photobucket to do this...

I know the concept art has been rehashed many many times, but I noticed that there is a legitimate building with light coming out of the front located behind the Flying Unicorn. There is no building there now and the closest thing to it is the testing shed. I wonder if it's somehow part of the hippogriff experience, since the flying unicorn station remains generally untouched in the other concept art?



and for those who cared, the arrow indicated the area of likely future expansion. There is a dead end path in that concept art and on the marauder's map style park map. There is plenty of space for a minor expansion back there.

Question Opening Day?

We are just in the process of planning a springish trip to FL and wondered about opening dates. The website just says "spring 2010" but we would like to hit the park when HP is open as we don't get south that often. Does anyone have any idea when this might be? A web search doesn't bring up the information.

Notice anything in the main turret?











Inside the ride building.

Also doesn't the snow look grey on the hogsmeade station roof? I really like the snow on the picture above and hope the snow in Hogsmeade looks like that.

Scans from Snitchseeker:
What have you heard about the HP amusement park?
Tom Felton: We are going there in May?
Bonnie Wright: We're looking forward very much to seeing what that's all about...They're making it so as a fan of the book, I'm intrigued to go down and see it... I think it's the idea that it's not like when you go to Disney and you can get Mickey Mouse...they're just having wizards and dragons and more of the generic experience.
