    God it would be bizarre if they announced Fantastic Worlds and still kept mum on the coaster.

    Like, I highly doubt that would happen but it would be hilarious.

    One thing to keep in mind: Arthur probably wouldn't tweet that specifically if something in the media invite didn't strongly allude to Potter.

    I don't have any doubt that the coaster will be revealed.

    I do have doubts that's all they'll talk about. Just seems VERY odd to do it in NYC for just a single ride. Not something they'e ever done before.

    Yeah if this is just announcing the coaster than they are wasting their money and time.

    "They're not spending their money on advertising enough!"

    "How dare they spend that much money on advertising!"

    NYC - could it be Cursed Child Broadway related ie ‘launching’ the coaster whilst cross promoting the theatre show?

    I don’t think anyone asked for extravagant announcements. Just acknowledging things exist.

    I mean, the theater show is perpetually sold out so I'm not sure it needs promotion.

    I'm not saying it will *definitely* be more than the ride announcement, it just strikes me as super *odd*. But if they're going to do some big blowout announcement with Fantastic Worlds and maybe the JW projects in IoA, NYC would make a lot more sense. More media presence, Comcast execs are relatively close in Philly, etc. I dunno. Just seems like it *could* be something like that.

    Meh. It's not my money.

    It may be too early for Fantastic Worlds, but it could be focused on Nintendo going into other parks.

    Levine specifically says it's a UOR invite. It's too early for hard details on FW, yes. But for them to present a broad overview of "The Future of UOR"? Not so sure.

    Idea....if actors are involved they may be working in NYC and it’s a scheduling issue. It’s a lot easier to get stars to come to NYC then it is Orlando.

    Hyped!

    So weird since EVERY OTHER Potter announcement in some form was digital only or in Orlando. First thing that comes to my mind is that they'll tie it in with Cursed Child (not saying it'll come to Orlando, but you get the drift). It could be something larger for Potter in general. Or they could be making a bigger splash with announcements for more attractions. Remember we still have T2, SLoP, and more loose threads just hanging out there.

    Can we start a petition to get Alicia a media invite? Considering she’s promoting this ride better then anyone?

    So FWIW, the scuttlebutt was that they already filmed something in Orlando with a star for the announcement...which is why this has thrown me for such a loop. I really don't know what to make of this.
