Maybe the motorcycle seat is reserved for Hagrid.

Too soon. :lol:

Well the bike and sidecar does match how Hagrid and Harry ride it in the movie. I'm really interested to see how this coaster turns out.

That would be the FujiQ low capacity version of the ride! Build the train with all Hagrid models riding the motorbikes and you can ONLY ride the sidecars. ;)

After putting everything in a fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo, which very well may happen here as well.

My only thought why you may be able to have your phone in line is the fact the coaster doesn't appear pass over pathways like Hulk or Rockit.

^ Are phones and that kind of thing allowed in line for Escape from Gringotts?

Only Hulk and Rockit had the metal detectors and cell phone ban if I remember correctly.

Correct. Dragon Challenge also used to have metal detectors, but... yeah.

I have been randomly and inconsistently told on both Mummy and Gringotts that cell phones MUST go in fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo. They don't seem to say this all the time, and it has only happened once on each ride on different visits (although within the past year) and it's almost as though if they see you enter the line with a phone in your hand, they will tell you to put it away in a fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo, but if it is in your pocket, they don't.

It makes no sense.

^ That sounds accurate to me, at least from my experience. When I go on those two, I usually just hide my phone while entering the line and I'm good to go. Of course, they want you to use fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo but if it looks like you don't have anything on you they don't stop you.
