    I think this will be a good family friendly coaster. Not kiddie, but not crazy thrill ride coaster. The backwards drop / drop track are the only huge thrills, and they aren’t too terrifying by any stretch.

    You guys see the bottom of that purple post-it? "I love Andysol"

    Knew it.

    Agreed.
    They have amazed me with every single attraction. Hogwarts Express and Gringotts round out 2 of my top 3 favorite attractions at the resort.
    I'm not tired of Harry Potter but want the love spread around.

    I don't blame anybody reacting like that. There is a ton of confusion on Facebook. It only shows how bad a job Universal is doing "explaining" to the general public what the hell they are building. And the funny thing is, they have nothing to be ashamed about. The ride looks amazing but they clearly don't want to tell the GP that.

    I'm doing my best to help set the record straight whenever possible. At the end of my interview, I told them if you only use one soundbite, keep the bit about no screens... and they totally did!

    In all seriousness..

    Love the fact that it's sooner than I expected. Given everything this attraction has, I'm really happy that they're wanting to get this done sooner than later (and with it already testing, it shows great confidence).

    Kind of surprised they gave us a date before they gave us more info on the experience. Usually the date is the last thing they give us but hey at least we know things are on point. Also despite the image being sort of a copy and paste job it was smart of them to showcase that ride vehicle. Looking forward to the two separate ride experiences debate lol.

    As soon as Fox 35 uploads it. If not I'll throw it on Twitter tomorrow myself. It was brief.

    Did you see my calendar behind my head lol?

    I have been on Wavebreaker several times since I live an hour away from San Antonio. The seats are comfortable to me. I have never even noticed a problem but then again I'm only 5'7" so not sure how it would be for someone taller.

    Yeah we're not talking about that at all, I'm SHOCKED they gave us a date. I figured that'd be a March thing. Makes me think more this is a response to a Disney dump than vice versa.

    Looks like someone didn't turn their phone when they snapped the first pic....
