    I could be full of poo, but I believe sometimes the synching and squenching of some of the projectors will be a bit off leading to an image blur...Also - I always forget to look up during the launch part, It's certainly not as bad as Kong with sightlines, where you have to basically force yourself to not look

    I do know that when those projectors are out of sync it is VERY noticable, but that's it.

    That's interesting, I've done Gringotts with an AAP and always used the middle lane. I'll ask around to see what changed.

    I once had an express ticket for Gringotts after the ride had broken down or something, and when I came to use it, they also directed me the same way as Tielo described. I think it might just be that every so often they do this for a guest, so that they have about zero wait time.

    I've always been directed down the middle lane and then use the golden elevators past the faux preshow elevators. Granted, we had a wheelchair in our party.

    I'm still trying to figure out why in the world they decided to make the locker room so small. Thought they would have learned their lesson after FJ.

    Would they be able to expand that out (towards the entrance of the ride) to make it a bit roomier? I can't remember how close they are to the exit-shop.

    Finally got to ride it and it was so fun. It wasn’t scary at all and I get scared easily.

    I know this thread hasn’t been super active lately, but I’ve had a question about this ride for a while. I remember the big news during construction that Daniel Radcliffe wouldn’t be returning to play Harry for the ride, as he was done with the franchise.

    My question is: how did they recreate Harry on the ride without him? Hermione in all of Diagon is an obviously bad recast, so did they get a soundalike for Radcliffe? The voice always sounded a lot more convincing to me. And did they just make a CG body for him since you’re never that close to him? I’ve never been on the ride so I haven’t been able to see these screens in person.

    If my memory serves me correct, I believe I read that they used previous filmed footage and just put it into that scene, so the voices would not be an issue if that was the case. . Perhaps someone else could add to that if my recall was bad.

    The only real person is Ron. Everything else is CGI. And yes, its voice doubles.

    Sorry to bring up an oldish thread.
    Rode tonight during HHN...for some reason the 3D was turned off for the “Voldemort and Harry Fight” scene. Will check it out again tomorrow.

    Edit:
    Rode again on September 21st, 3D was working in that scene...probably just a fluke.

    First time on this ride and probably my favorite ride at USF. Marathoned it 3 days in a row with Early entry and rode it about 20 times. Such a fun mix of dark ride and coaster elements. The first drop is surprisingly good. I wish USH had Diagone and Gringotts.

    I love the ride. I've literally rode it a couple hundred times, and I don't live anywhere near Florida. Great rerideability . It never gets old.
