    I assume this Hogsmeade won't be getting a Hagrid clone?

    lol true, but this park is 2 years away plus id assume they didn't forsee this issues beforehand. Just didn't know if it was in the plans at all.

    Harry Potter is not popular in China either (in fact Detective Pikachu outdrew it). But I figure they are banking on it being a quality land and hopefully translating well to the market...

    But this is more of a clone park of best hits rather than a fully fleshed out project designed for the market (like Epic Universe seems to be).

    To bring up, Nintendo and Tencent are both trying to get the Switch to China, and even showed it off at a Chinese tech event just last week with massive lines.

    I wouldn't be shocked once it's legally approved for China, that Universal may look into the idea of SNW for Beijing.

    Most events in China have massive lines due to their huge population within their cities but it doesn't necessarily reflect the GP.

    I wouldn't look to much into this when the film was produced by a Chinese owned and headquartered company.

    Do we know approximately how much of the gyrosphere ride will be animatronics?

    Why even clone a 20-year-old coaster for a completely different IP?

    Why not? It’ll be a high capacity, reliable, marquee attraction that’ll be popular with guests.

    It's the angle. Can't get that angle from IOA cause you'll be in the water.

    That's what I thought after posting, I can't imagine they'd be prepared to change the layout for here and not in Orlando when they rebuilt it.

    It's crazy, there's only been 2 new sitting coasters since Hulk debuted by B&M.

    Beijing's Hulk clone is actually completely re-profiled, so you're correct that the zero-g roll looks different. The supports are in different places too, and the cobra roll is much shallower than ours.
