    Yep. If I was the manager and I saw the crowds in line I’d also say “make it 10 hours for now, we will adjust as soon as we get an idea how many are here etc.”

    All outside rides are now delayed due to inclement weather, although HMCMA continues to be advertised at a 480 minute wait despite not running.

    We'll be there to observe the madness. Purely academic purposes.

    Yikes, this forecast is looking bleak.

    Do we know why the line wasn’t moving much earlier? Or how many trains they’re running?

    I’d say this is a popular opinion. Congrats to Universal on bringing in the crowds today. Disney’s turn in August. What a time to be alive for theme park fans!

    Also, May all the Guest Relation TMs have the spunk of Professor Umbridge today.

    Must’ve been Trelawney’s idea to open a new coaster in Orlando in peak storm season.

    I was waiting for the comparison to Galaxy Edge opening and Smugglers Run Wait times which never go over an hour (for obvious reasons) - I am not looking forward to June 23rd when the real crowds will be at Disneyland for GE. I will be at DHS in September and am not really looking forward to the cluster that will happen.

    At any event I agree that both Disney and Universal are delivering good things to us fans. This ride looks amazing.

    Random reminiscing question for @Brian G. or anyone else who has rode it. Back when we didn't know much about the ride, there was discussion that we could have been riding brooms as RV's. With the way the motorcycle RV is designed, could that have been done as a broom instead or would it end up being not believable?
