Perfect atmosphere for a nice meal huh?
My thinking is there’s only so much releases of information marketing can do. By letting people blog and talk about this ride, they are getting additional exposure for the same amount of marketing.
They can't help themselves but interfere with the Harry Potter theming next door can they? I though just the JP gate being where it was after Hogwarts was built was bad....but this is ridiculous.
I thought the idea of removing Dragon Challenge (among other things) is that it clashed too much with the rest of the area.
I mean, I'll be happy to be wrong.
My feelings about this project are well known and unchanged, but I will say that, as always, I really appreciate your thorough write-ups, @Alicia.
I would hope they would wait to see how Hollywood's revamp is received before they commit to bringing it to IOA. Its quality and merits are only speculative at this point.
I can’t imagine that JK/WB are happy about this.
One would hope that track on the Hogsmeade side will be low enough to not be visible over the buildings from inside the land.
Back porch for three broomsticks already has a view of Hulk and all other islands so maybe not too big a deal.
I'm not necessarily worried about seeing it as much as the noise intrusion.
For the hell of can they name this thing The Sprinting Dinosaur lol
Hogsmeade just can't get away from that bare steel coaster view. Chalk it up to the Curse of the Dragon Challenge.
I think that was a figment of fanboy imaginations
I don’t think anyone is going to be let down.
I also think it doesn’t matter if they are. It’s coming.
If by Hogsmeade you mean only the outside seating area of a restaurant, sure
Oh yay! I think we changed our next visit to March 2021 (from November 2021) and I was kinda sad that I would be missing TRON and GotG, but this makes up for it
It's a theme park, you're not actually eating at The Three Broomsticks in Hogsmeade...
The idea of the best theme parks is that they're designed to be so immersive, you could actually imagine you ARE eating at The Three Broomsticks in Hogsmeade. Otherwise it's just like Busch Gardens or similar.
Asking for real: is this just based on a hunch, or knowledge you have of the project? Because I can definitely envision plausible scenarios where it's a step down from the original incarnation.
That's not the point. For me, this has been a nice, calm location to eat in IOA and to get away from the crowds (and eating peacefully by the water).
I'm sure watching the coaster in the same location could be cool for some people, but some quieter areas are appreciated and the noise from this is going to change that porch entirely.
It could also be just as quiet and calm once this new ride opens. At this point we don’t know.
Big difference between eating IN Three Broomsticks or out on the patio overlooking the lagoon.
For the record, I think they are squeezing this roller coaster in an area not meant for it. However, being able to see Hogwarts from Jurassic Park doesn't really make me imagine I'm in a jungle in Costa Rica. I realize I'm in a theme park surrounded by different lands, characters, rides, etc.
If only that were the way they operated. However, they simultaneously planned for both USH and UO when they designed Kong and Fast 360. So.......
That’s a problem that’s been touched on before as well. You’ll find we’re a fairly consistent bunch.
A little of both. I don’t think you’re going to be disappointed
You can already see/hear Hulk and MSHI, see Suess, see Toon Lagoon, and see the tropical jungles of JP from the same patio that’s supposed to be in Scotland, so sorry if I don’t buy the immersion ruining coaster addition.
