    If you really want that spray effect, have the person sitting in front of you have a few hard butterbeers in Hog’s Head. That will hit them halfway through the ride.

    It’s been a long time, but the last time I was there, that didn’t happen to me. Must’ve been a malfunction.

    Glad I'm not the only one who realized the opening flue scene on Forbidden Journey is out of focus. Also the water effects were turned back on last week during my visit at the giant spider and the rocks after it.

    I hope the stage shows that debuted with these effects also come this summer.

    I've always thought the ones in Japan looked cool! Orlando has slightly different ones as well. And I definitely feel we have the space to use for more wand stations. Can't wait to experience it!

    Perhaps a question of morbid curiosity, has anyone been able to see any indications of the Wand Studies show from Osaka coming via by looking at the top of Hippogriff's lift while riding the family coaster? That could be a nice way to see whether or not it's happening (along to see if there are any changes being made to the extended switchback for DWT).

    EDIT: Here is also an example of the Incendio/Meteololinx Recanto effects possibly coming, given from Osaka.

    Went on FJ today and the ride is now noticeably dimmer. It's really dark in several scenes making the backstage elements less noticeable.

    No changes yet in Hogmead. Its also notable that the Osaka version of the Owlery is shaped differently than Hollywood. This probably means that this additional section would need to be added specifically for the fire effect.

    Recently, the only change I have seen on the stage show is with the TriWizard show...the girls now enter the show from backstage and not from the street.

    I hate that my first thought was exactly this...People nowadays can be truly horrible...

    In other news, that's why these warnings are posted all throughout the queue...."This ride contains sudden acceleration, braking...etc..." I can understand if he didn't know he had a pre-existing injury, but I'm hesitant to believe it's fully honest...

    Will there be fireworks for “The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle” returning in June? They didn’t have any for when it played earlier this year in March/April. The Christmas show during the holiday season had them with two bursts.

    ^I was about to ask the same question.

    Did just read the update to the additions. Curious to see where the new wand experiences will be. And I've never even heard of the talking mirror before... do any other WWoHP lands have that already? I don't remember seeing it or Orlando, and I've never been to Japan's.

    Some of the additions are a bit anti-climatic... they've already had those new food items at 3 Broomsticks for a while, as well as some of the clothes offerings. Still, though, it's great to see an overall plusing of something that they really didn't have to do. Very pleasant surprise!

    NLHC (weird acronym) is playing right now. I was there last weekend and they had fireworks at the end of every show. Not a lot, but they were there.

    Another question... no specific timeline was mentioned, just "summer" (aside from the light show, but I'm talking the wand effects and mirror). Does anyone know of any specific date this will be in effect?
