    Waits and Uptime Reports - Hagrid’s Magical Creature Motorbike Adventure

    Today I got in line for the park at 8:30, rode Hagrid twice in a row without waiting much. After that the wait was 120+ minutes for a few hours. Around noon it dipped to 85 minutes. Should have gotten in line then but I thought it might go down even more. At 1pm it was a 110 minute wait, only...

    Waits and Uptime Reports - Hagrid’s Magical Creature Motorbike Adventure

    I'm going to the park Saturday morning, so I'm starting to check the wait times today to get a sense of how to plan. The park opened 20 minutes ago and the app says Hagrid's and FB are both closed. The other rides are showing wait times. Also, I'm staying at an onsite hotel but it says early...

    Universal's Epic Universe Wish List & Speculation

    Exactly. It's a solid basis for a land, but that doesn't even matter. People will love the end result if it's executed well with a high tech ride. For example I thought Avatar was a terrible movie, but the Pandora land is incredible and the FOP ride blew me away. It's a great land to visit even...

    Universal's Epic Universe Wish List & Speculation

    One day if they remake Jaws, I would love to see a stand-alone Jaws ride added to USF. But an indoor next-level dark ride similar to Pirates Shanghai. Imagine the thrill of being in an "underwater" scene with a giant shark...

    Universal's Epic Universe Wish List & Speculation

    Maybe the EU Hub will be free access to anyone staying onsite at the Universal Orlando resort, and anyone with an IOA or USF ticket. But to enter the lands you need a specific/upgraded ticket for that?

    Universal's Epic Universe News & General Discussion

    I hope the rumored lands/attractions are true! Wizarding World - I do think that Paris is the best option for the Wizarding World land. Whether it ties in directly to either Potter/FB, or both, the public would love to explore a Paris theme with associated restaurants anyways. It would be...

    General Discussion - Hagrid's Magical Creature Motorbike Adventure

    I was wondering if anyone can tell me what Fluffy's dog breath smells like as you pass by? I heard it's scented. Is that true? Is there also a scent effect in Hagrid's hut scene with the fire? And where is the Centaur located exactly? I have not seen it on any of the POV videos.

    General Discussion - Hagrid's Magical Creature Motorbike Adventure

    Are the dual drop tracks in the same big Devil's snare room? Do they drop into the same big forbidden forest room? Or are there two entirely separate spaces for each drop track? Curious if there is anything slightly different about each one.

    Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge (Disneyland)

    Do we know what these new light sabors are like? Do they expand, are they always extended, etc. I was under the impression they were a new technology and closer to "real" light sabors than ever before. Just trying to figure out if $200 is outrageous or not.

    What saves us from the devil's snare? In the promo this week universal made it a point to say that devil's snare is defeated by light AND fire...could a skrewt blast happen in the drop building?

    It looks like, as you walk in the main entrance to enter the queue, the train of the coaster will go by but the track may somewhat hidden...it may just look like the motorcycles go flying by. If course the track in the distance will still be visible.

    I'm excited to see the Hagrid AA. In the films he's supposed to be 8'6" tall. Should be very impressive to see on the ride, especially if they have him standing up.

    Universal's New Park/Site B Blue Sky Thread

    I'm hoping for a Fantastic Beasts/Wizarding World hotel that connects to the new park. It would be perfect, we've always wanted a Harry Potter hotel but it just didn't make sense with the original novels. Now, they gave the ability to tie it in directly to the upcoming movies.

    The first time I rode FJ I could not believe how close I got to the scenes/animations when riding. I wonder if this coaster will feel the same way. For me at least, I have not been on any coaster that goes that fast so close to trees and other theming.
