Hehe I don't think it'll be as bad as that one as it would make you miss scenery etc I can only picture it potentially putting people upside down if its some kind of avoidance move during the ride, although it may not as apparently you may be on enchanted benches.

And you can see 3 of them in this pic:



But I wouldn't be surprised if the opening in the pic below remain open for ventilation:

By the way, DD sign is no more, and the JP arch (the small one near the greenhouse) IS GONE too.

Is there a map of the WWoHP somewhere? It just dawned on me that it would be nice if I knew where I was going

Closest things we have so far are :

The general IOA updated map (although doesn't show exact building for WWOHP) here: http://www.universalorlandovacations...I_brochure.PDF

Concept map of WWOHP itself here: http://www.stitchkingdom.com/wp-cont...d_map_high.jpg

Thanks! We have never even been to IOA so it is hard for me to visualize everything...it looks like the only entrance will be through Hogsmead?

Unless they close the entrance between Hogsmeade & JP, then I would guess so.

Can't see why you couldn't continue along the regular path thru Hogsmeade to JP tho?

Can someone please direct me where you are finding all of this information on the rides and descriptions, I can't find a thing!!!

New photo update here.
I will be very surprised if they have more than one entrance to Potter, though stranger things have happened.
