    Thinking these are limited animation figure, maybe the wheel turns to make it look likes the Pixie is trying to steer it. Figure we’ll see more around the drop area, maybe our bike doesn’t stall but is interfered with by the Pixies?

    According to the blog post, there will be more than 20 Pixies hiding in various places throughout the ride! It's like a scavenger hunt, and yet another reason to ride again and again.

    Well sorry for questioning things then. I’m just an inquisitive person by nature.

    I even said before it looks great in the video so idk where you’re getting hate from but whatever.

    They look like they move throughout the car? The one that's on the steering wheel isn't in the picture where the one is on the door and vice versa.

    Maybe they only took one out there to photograph and have to keep moving him around!

    20 pixies throughout the attraction. Guess they're like just about everywhere. Pixies to the left, Pixies to the right, Pixies in front. Pixies behind. Pixies Everywhere.

    I wonder if their wings flutter.

    They’re so small I don’t think it would matter.

    Hopefully some of these have some articulation, but having a bunch of them to keep your eye out for will be fun

    VERY excited to see the Devil Snare

    I'll take the guess, that they probably do; and it'll be more of small motors within them to just simply flap.

    Pixies look cool. Really excited for tomorrow, tho!

    I'm pleasantly surprised by this. I didn't think they'd show the Devil's Snare, being a plant and not a creature, but I'm pretty excited to finally see it!


    I doubt all 20ish Pixies will have movement, but hope at least some do.

    Bracing myself for several pages of pixies not looking pixie-ish enough :)

    Cool, they will be throughout the ride. Hopefully some will show up in the queue as well.

    Wouldn’t it be neat if the preshow has Arthur Weasley accidentally letting them out of their cage? Something to set up why they’re wreaking havok throughout the ride would be fun.

    Now that we’re just over 2 months out:
    Any wagers on if or when softs happen?

    I’m also dying for some more aerials. Getting hyped more and more for this ride.

    I’d say the week before, maybe around June 7th is a good guess. (I’m hoping not while I’m vacation week of Memorial Day.) Of course it’s always possible they get done and want to test it early. But it’s also possible they run into technical issues and can’t.
