    The ride just looks amazing with the true ground view of the surroundings. Love Bio's high in the sky photos, but that's not the way a rider experiences an attraction.

    What did these people do to get chosen to get on the ride? Are they family members of UC employees? Randomly solicited guests?

    It is against the site rules. They want you to use the +Quote (multi-quote) and/or the edit function instead of double posting. :shrug:

    The posts suggest that they don’t want people to glide by and not know there is an attraction waiting for them. Funny.

    I'm guessing event stage for grand opening. It's temporary I would assume.

    That's my thinking with these being spotlights.

    If it's a ribbon cutting, who will be the one holding the scissors?

    That’s who I’d really hope to be there but Robbie Coltrane’s health hasn’t been great recently and he was looking a little frail at the event not too long ago.

    That's unfortunate. It would've been magical if they had Coltrane in the Motorbike and Daniel Radcliffe in the sidecar on the first train opening day.

    It would take the Imperius Curse to get Radcliffe anywhere near this thing.

    With Tom Felton and Alan Gilmore at the forefront of the marketing, I'd be surprised if they weren't around for the opening.

    To be fair, all these parks make their fair share of misleading superlative claims to advertise their new rides. It is kind of a weird thing to boast about though, especially since the only people who would truly care about it almost certainly know about Verbolten.

    ^ To be fair, that video was hastily thrown together for the RMC Gwazi announcement and had several other errors as well. They were all later corrected in the official video released by BGT.

    Keep in mind that Single and Express may not be open during possible previews or at opening.
