    Looking at this as a whole again, we really do have a ton of flat straightaway sections. I know most of them are launches but it will be interesting to see how they keep up the pace of the ride through all these, especially thru the expected breaking/slow pacing areas.

    There will be pathways I assure you... however one will have to hope for an evac on the ride to use them.

    Are you afraid this is going to be a Na'vi River Rest Ride?

    How is this ride going to appear from Hogsmeade? Will we be seeing bits of Hogwarts on our right and then the complete castle straight ahead on the left?

    So, I muse that the current beams are for the lower angle of the roof and the new center post is for the steep angle part?

    :thumbsup:

    I think those beams there now are for the interior roof structure.

    Well of course. That is why I stated the other day that they are painted and themed for viewing from the interior... where most beams in a structure go.

    This won't have the second section of the building though, only one round section.. So, the question is... is this Hagrid's Hut, and we just don't see the extended part of it, (like it's supposed to be hidden behind our view on the other side maybe,) or, is this just some random groundskeeper hut thing he also uses sometimes that happens to look nearly identical to his hut? Like maybe some animal playpen thing, and he just uses the same building style whenever he needs a new structure.

    (Or, does it not matter lol.)

    Dragon house? Maybe it is sleeping and wakes with one eye open? That would make me scurry out of there fast!

    One real Hagrid's Hut by the Hippogriff and one strangely large round building with a nearly identical architectural style on this ride, but yea, kinda. Looks like it.

    If rumors of a Blast-Ended Skrewt being inside are true, that’s the perfect name for it. ;)

    At the mouse they have 2 Beast interiors, one on a stage the other one turned into a food place.

    I think this building is a so called "cold weather tower".

    I don't have a problem with Hagrid having more than one hut. As a groundskeeper he may travel for days taking care of the creatures and grounds so Jo just never told us about the other places he spends the night. I know magic and all that so he could get home if he wanted to.
    Anyway it is coming along nicely
