    I don't believe that is the case. The dueling coaster is staying as far as I know, it's the buildings within the hub I wouldn't get too attached to.

    I have heard that the hub will be rearranged, but I think it will be keeping the "Celestial Garden" theme.

    @Alicia in your podcast you said Frankenstein’s castle would be like more thrill ride ish than forbidden journey, does that mean it’ll just move faster?

    The newer robocoaster can move faster... So, if the rumors are true, yes.

    Im hoping the castle ride is indeed a bit more thrilling, as well as genuinely giving a few scares. Not sure it'll happen but I really hope we get some.

    I am a little concerned about having another Kuka based attraction through a medieval castle.

    And my dream would be that they use a much more aggressive program. I mean really fling you around.

    Yes. Here is a version at Legoland CA to give you an idea what it can do.

    The middle ground between light and shadow...
    Isn't Forbidden Journey already approaching Body Wars levels of inducing motion sickness in guests?

    Sorry if someone else has already asked this but is the Kuka ride just Frankenstein or is it multiple monsters?

    Creature (expansion)
    Possibly Phantom and Hunchback (unknown)

    The Dementor popping out of the darkness made me realize that Universal is very capable of designing a ride that scares the sh*t out of me haha

    Also not having screens would set this apart enough I feel

    If BGT getting an RMC means EU can’t get one, can we please get a Great Coasters International hybrid somewhere?

    Do yourself a favor and visit Fun Spot next time you're in Orlando. White Lightning is what you're looking for.
