    I would love a trip into the lake for HP. I dunno how a ride would work. But merfolk, the giant squid, grindelow, etc. it'd be cool to get a second task ride. I just can't figure out the ride tech.

    That and the lake would be opposite of Hogwarts, closer to the woodsy area and bridge between JP and Hogsmeade...

    Ehhhh...by that logic, hogsmeade is too close to the castle, the forbidden Forrest shouldn't be on the right of Hogsmeade etc. the map gets screwy if you analyze it at all.

    I get what ya mean though. Especially based on Japan.

    True enough. I guess what I really wanna say is the lake would be cool to have but I'd like the Forbidden Forest best and it's suited to the Dragon Challenge area...

    I saw this and it came across as curious. Although I personally dont believe DC would get retracked at this point it is curious to see blue and red tracks at the B&M plant. Thoughts?

    The colors actually look almost identical.

    This is the sticker on the blue/turquoise track. So it's off to China. The red one is rumoured to be for a wing coaster.

    Even though it could be, it's just as likely that the track shown above isn't for Uni but is for another park.

    Plus, and correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe Hulk's track wasn't sighted at the plants till mid/late summer. So unless we see permits or hear more, take the track with massive salt.

    EDIT: It seems that @mitchada04 brought up that point, of the tags..

    THANK YOU.

    I would rather have 4 jimmy fallon 'rides' than a re-track of DC.

    I will say that it's very creepy seeing those two colors side by side.!!

    Yeah, since Hulk turned out the way it did my heart missed a beat seeing those colors. Just no, please no, let it die!

    It's down and out. I don't see any honourable death unless Universal decide to let it duel for one last month before it's demise.

    I was at least expecting a significant improvement in the ride quality, if they retracked DC and it came out the same I would swear off coasters alltogether

    I can't see them retracking the ride, it's highly assumed that Rowling isn't a fan of them in the first place so I can't see her signing off on a track replacement anytime soon.

    Especially not in the same non-Potter colors.

    Fun story, I used to work in one of the buildings on the backlot and parked right next to Dueling Dragons. So close that my brand new car at the time got a bit of blue paint overspray. So maybe not a fun story at the time.
