    I have been on it maybe 10-15 times. Most times I just enjoy the queue, the practical scenes of woods/dementors/spiders and such and just look away during the motion simulation parts (if you sit in the first seat and look to the left you can avoid seeing the screen altogether, only doing this did I realize the screen is 3 circular screens in a triangular orientation). Getting off-topic though. Hope SLoP is nothing like this.

    The first two concepts (almost the same) for SLOP were almost entirely physical sets. I haven't seen any inside info on this final concept, that supposedly has a different story from the first two, but I would guess it will remain top heavy with physical sets and any screens would be secondary to the ride experience.

    Can they at least paint a mural of apartments on the other half of the building? It's just so jarring seeing it go from highly themed to beige Costco building.

    Not to pile on, but Universal officially classifies Transformers as a dark ride. Source: me, former lead on the attraction.

    Honestly....... this is the real reason Universal will never touch Disney.

    I love them both don’t get me wrong, but Disney would NEVER be so cheap and careless to say... well we themed HALF the building!! Just so incredibly lazy and lame. :/

    Careful with your stones in the glass house you just built.

    Mkay you’re clearly missing the point here. There is a difference between being able to see past the facade from across a lake then being able to walk up and lean against a blatantly unthemed Costco wall.
    A major difference.

    Are we not allowed to have an opinion on this forum of opinions?

    I honestly can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not.

    I mean have you been to Hogsmead, Springfeild or seen what Super Nintendo Land looks like....I mean Disney does do better many times but Disney has done cheap things like not have the rocks behind radiators springs be made, doesn't take away from the land

    When I'm in the land besides being on the coaster I rarely feel like I'm in Hollywood. I wish they had the space to space things out more but they can't.
    But detail wise, Potterland is at Disney Level or above

    Again this has nothing to do with quality of theming... where they choose to apply it. Potterland is incredible. Would it be better if they finished theming the FJ showbuilding? 1000% and my point is only that Disney doesn’t allow those kinds of things in guest areas, especially from within the land itself.

    The fact that they are building this new ride and are having an entire side of the building INSIDE the park IN the guest accessible area so blatantly unthemed in 2019 is sad.
    Especially after showing what they’re capable of with something like Potter. It’s half assed... literally. ‍♂️

    Let’s take this discussion and have it when it’s done. This is reminiscent of the Diagon Alley berm and people complaining.

    No idea what you’re talking about but a berm is different from a building that’s had its scaffolding removed where there won’t be theming to show a basically finished and painted unthemed studio/warehouse wall.
