    Running pretty quick

    Hmmmm. I may have cursed that. Lol

    Back cycling. I think there’s only 4 trains running cause 4 go by quickly and then there’s a big gap

    Are the tests seats accessible whether the ride is running or not? I'll be in the park for the Weird Al concert tonight and thought I'd try it.

    The test seats outside are blocked by theming for tomorrow’s ceremony. There are more test seats in the queue before load though.

    I'll wait till the end of the week then. I'll only have a couple hours before i have to run to Hard Rock, and that saves me walking to hogsmeade. Thanks Alicia!

    All the media stuff will happen after park close. IoA closes at 6pm tomorrow. Information for the reception mentioned it was at 7:30pm, and I assume the actual ceremony would be closer to 8pm.

    How many trains do you think are running?

    With all the numbers crunched here, it seemed like this was going to be a capacity monster and I just can't see the need for a queue that long unless it's running well below capacity.

    Some humans are on the ride currently. Not sure whom or for why, just passing along the info.

    Fair, but I don't think all those barricades are set up for media... lol

    I was looking at the forecast online, and from what it showed yesterday to today, it has worsened especially for Thursday morning with thunder storms until about 4pm, then apparently it clears up and Friday has less chance of rain now, too. I was also listening to the forecast on the news last night as well and they're expecting more rain than usual this whole week. I know from having lived in Central Florida the majority of my life that weather is unpredictable, but we gotta have expectations in check...

    Then again, I got to thinking and on my last visit to IoA I rode Hulk on the pouring rain (lightning is usually what closes these outdoor attractions), so I am wondering if any rain will shut this down, or if they might still run it under no-lightning rain...

    I wasn't saying leaving empty seats will be the preferred strategy. I was just responding to the person worried they would be splitting pairs up. People would have a conniption fit right there on the load platform if that happened. Filling in gaps with singles is the easy answer. Absent of that though, they'd leave an empty seat before they E-stopped the ride due to an argument over seating arrangement.

    I don’t get people that ask the Universal twitter if there are plans for soft openings. Almost by definition, they will not tell you yes.
