    I mean, it's not like they aren't going to theme the courtyard. It won't look like backstage once this is finished.

    I’m talking the areas around it and I’m not saying it like you’re going to see it. More like it looks like a terrible bottleneck to be on whatever path takes you to the courtyard. It’s sandwiched between Water World and Potter’s backstage areas.

    It looks to be raised up pretty high, entering the warp pipe already on the second level of Super Nintendo World (no need for escalator), and it looks pretty big to me. I don't think it'll be any more of a bottleneck than something like Diagon Alley, which only has one small entrance. That platform looks pretty large, and the park already has other dead end paths, so I'm sure they'll deal with it just fine.

    That's the problem with these immersive lands: really feels like you're in a whole different world, itty bitty entry/exits.

    Just for reference I've added the below.
    Green = current Hoggsmead walkway and entrance
    Purple = where we expect the SNW walkway and entrance to be

    It looks like the walkway to get to SNW will be shorter than the current potter walkway and actually the courtward seems quite a decent size when you compare it to other nearby structures.

    Looks like they’re going to need to make major changes to the WaterWorld area. That area currently is just big enough to handle the loading and unloading of guests from the theater. Imagine trying to do so while tons of people are entering and exiting Nintendo

    That purple path before the courtyard is what I’m talking about. It’s going to be a terrible bottleneck if that’s the only way in and out.

    It really won't. They already have the same 'issue' with the potter entrance and they manage it fine. Any other park and I might agree but these guys are pros at managing crowds.

    If it's not already, I'd assume they are going to connect the green and purple paths. Make a big loop out of it.

    It looks like the purple and green paths will connect to form a full ring.

    Even from far distances, it looks incredible on just a scale level.

    Can't wait to see what it looks like when finished.

    He is far too busy making friends with Universal Orlando ;)

    Amazing new pic. I'd say it's a given that we will see a tree mural all along the potter side of the wall, it stands out like crazy.

    edit: looks like some greenery on the main tower???

    At some point I’ll be leaving this thread in an attempt to be as surprised as possible when a stateside version opens.
