Behind the scenes photos of Harry Potter Forbidden Journey

Postby aimster » Sat Jul 31, 2010 8:02 pm

...like that idiot did last week when the ride broke down. :|

So let me set it up for you...

After waiting in line for nearly an hour for my first ever ride on Harry Potter & the Forbidden Journey, just as the ride started... it stopped. My "flying bench" sat facing a blank humungiod movie screen for a bit, then the lights came on! Then the Kuka arm moved a bit and I could see... stuff! I'll let the photos tell the rest of the story (sorry for the crappy quality as I snapped them with my iPhone, which happened to be in my pocket):

After the dragon, the Kuka arms went into I guess the "default" position and took everyone through the rest of the ride with the lights on. Wish I had snapped more photos, but I was too in awe to pull the phone out of my pocket again. Was weird to see see how it all worked, but fascinating at the same time. I've NEVER been stuck on a ride like that before, so I was pretty freaking excited. They gave everyone front of the line passes for when the ride was working again, but I ended up using the single rider line on my 2nd attempt at the ride (which worked perfectly that time around).

So that's what the ride looks like with the lights on. My guess is that when it e-stops the lights come on?

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Looks interesting, especially the Back the Future sized "Speaker" movie screens. Thanks for the pictures!

Oh my, this looks awesome! Great pictures!

And these were taken by an iPhone? It's actually not that bad of quality.

At least I know now what kind of ride Forbidden Journey is!

Thanks for sharing!

I would have been excited too if this happened to me, Great Pictures! Something tells me these pictures will be everywhere on the internet that has to do with roller coasters.

Too bad you don't have any pictures of the Dementors in the finale section...those would have been some cool pics. :)
