    I'm guessing you just pulled the vernacular from all of the other Universal rides, but it is dead on.

    I agree. I can only imagine how many children will pass through the gates, just tall enough to ride, and then be terrified of entering rides for the rest of their childhood.

    Oh wait, that was just me.

    I'm guessing it would be Hagrid - it would make sense, if he was prepping you for "class" or whatever's about to happen.

    Have you ever removed a link to another website that has the images?
    I mean, I understand not posting them here and the potential blowback on you.

    But linking to another website?

    In certain cases, yes. Coincidentally, each time related to Potter.

    I was late to the party but found it nonetheless thanks @Alicia that is a beautiful piece of concept art that found its way to you. From my perspective it almost seems as if that’s the image that will be used on the maps and the app. It’s positioned in just the right way so that it would fit perfectly on the map.

    I remember when Space Mountain first opened RCA didn't want it called a roller coaster so the warning side stated it was "a high-speed, turbulent thrill ride in the dark". And of course people would ask 'What does that mean' and the CM's would state "its a roller coaster." After a few months they compromised and it said "Space Mountain is a thrilling, high-speed roller coaster-type ride in the dark."

    Well, in Germany, a building that looks VERY similar to Spaceship Earth called EuroSAT does have a rollercoaster inside of it.

    The middle ground between light and shadow...
    Like I said, I've read plenty of those things at Universal and Disney, so it was pretty easy to follow the formula purely from memory!

    The leaked art looks incredible. Just the type of coaster Uni needs more of.

    That's insane! Didn't think another theme park would ever have something that looked so similar.

    Its a geodesic dome though, not a complete sphere. The silver makes it look like SSE but those have been around forever it seems.

    Attractions Magazine has run a story with the leaked art.

    It doesn't go all the way around. The bottom part is flat. Its also hollow - here's one from 1967 - also not a sphere [​IMG]

    Wow, they really took that concept art to a new level with those breakdowns. And they gave you a very prominent mention. That's a really great article.
