    It’s (allegedly) a fairly minor issue, but they’re not going to test until it’s fixed. It’s nothing to panic about (allegedly)

    They were not. No matter what happened.

    And yes, what @JungleSkip said.

    The audio in that video sounds sort of off, in a choppy / robotic sort of way.

    Actually, there quite literally are quotas and other things to be met before it ever opens.

    Sounds like this may be a Gringotts and run up to the last second to open its doors.

    I think it's probably for the best? The next two weeks are already slammed by Galaxy's Edge talk so you might as well wait for that to blow over before opening this one up.

    That is frighteningly accurate pricing.

    They're testing the off-ride audio, no trains running as of right now.

    As someone who has never been in the parks for a new ride opening, I have a couple of questions. Sorry if these have been asked before.

    What time do you all think is a good time to get to the park if we go on opening day? Do they let people in early to queue?
    Is there like a special opening ceremony/event that we should be aware of?

    Really looking forward to experiencing this whatever happens as I missed the opening of diagon by about 4 days so it'll be really cool to actually be a part of the day.

    If there is a special ceremony, it usually happens in the days prior -or- before park opening, and is only accessible by special invitation or media pass. As for how early to get there... I am not sure actually. But they won't let you in until the park opens.

    Are the hotels doing early morning access to IOA that day?

    Edit: Just checked. USF for all of June.

    Good, no competition... However, those with early access can hop on the train from London and end up at the ride faster than guests entering the front gate to IOA, fyi.
