Does anyone know what the attendance was?
How was Bio able to get pictures from within the park before it was open? He states this fact on twitter.
I'm going to guess that the park may of had a "Early Morning" access, that allowed people the ability to enter prior to park opening proper.
BIO knows all, sees all.........The Super Hero of theme Parks
Some of the VIP tours start very early in the morning, so they walk through the park to get loaded up in the tram even before the park opens. The guides aren't really supposed to, but sometimes they'll let their tour group take some pictures in Potter without any other guests.
In a detail I never noticed until now, the rockwork is completely different on Hogwarts than that of Orlando's.
Thanks to Bio, for taking those pics.
There’s also rock instead of a finished ceiling right inside the entrance.
The roofs on the Orlando castle are blue like the movies while the Hollywood version is gray.
The chroma was turned down to near zilch in Hollywood for some reason... very gray everything. Orlando rockwork has more ochre and rust colors.
So now that #Hagride is clearly a runaway success in Orlando, do you think there’s a possibility they might bring it over here? I would take this any day over DA, honestly.
I want the attraction to come to Hollywood, but it is literally impossible in the way that it is from Orlando.
I would love to see a coaster like that (in near-total immersion/theming) Hollywood. In-fact, I'd argue we could see it eventually in the future, but not like Hagrids and not to that size.
I'd argue Hogsmeade is the only thing we will see from USH on Potter, unless if they do a second gate in the backlot area.
Even though the tram area may have enough space?
Seeing the success of the coaster makes me sad since USH could never get something like that. Unless it was a modified indoor version.
Are you counting the hill in that regard?
Without the hill (which even if you did that, you have to count cost of grading), you'd still need 6 acres to at-least get that close to the size, and the tram plaza counting the maintnance bay, is not even at 4.1 acres
An indoor version would work just as well if not better. Space is the only issue.
I'd Love to see it but at the same time it takes up so much space. I feel like we could get two rides or three rides for the footprint of that ride and USH needs all the rides it can cram in.
I'd think they could build an Intamin multilauch coaster onto the hillside. It wouldn't be the same layout, but it could have a similar ride experience. The problem with that is the sight lines of the lower lot would be nearly impossible to hide.
I'm happy to let the coasts have some rides that are unique to them. While I selfishly still would love to see Diagon Alley out here, I think I'd be okay leaving Hagrid in Orlando, even if we did have the space for it.
It just isn't going to happen. MoM taking over WW is more likely.
