    Are you able to see much at night? The video I saw looked like it was almost pitch black.

    You can see the different show scenes well, but the buildings and layout are hard to make out at night.

    Is the “main ruin” building lit up? Seems odd to not have a lighting package on the architectural parts at least.

    So there’s still a whole bunch of junk in front of the entrance. But they brought back the benches underneath the clock.

    So what is the expectation on how the virtual line will work opening weekend? I mean I know we only have Jimmy Fallon and Fast & Furious as the baseline for the system....but do you think the queue will remain open all day, and they will have virtual use the express lane? Or do you think they will close down the standby queue and if virtual passes run out, they will no longer permit people from entering for a designated amount of time (though I can't see that happening due to customer satisfaction).

    Thoughts?

    The virtual isn't a queue really. Its the wait time to get into the queue for this one. Once your time comes, you can return and enter the line. Its to prevent it from spilling out into Hogsmede, so you will still have a long wait.

    It is interesting that some of the coasters are having audio problems and that is why they aren’t allowing riders on those trains. I wonder if the problem is an unsolved mystery or if something just was not readied in time.

    Virtual Line will only be used when the queue is full, preventing the line from spilling into Hogsmeade.

    Honestly I don’t expect it to be used often beyond maybe a one or two day test.

    For those that attended, while we know there won't be Express Pass to start, did you get any inkling on where the Express line would be/go? Looking at videos of the queue, there are lots of spots where it turns into narrow passageways where obviously the Express Pass queue won't be together.

    So any idea where it will eventually be and ultimately merge with the rest of the regular queue?
