I really wished they would reveal the height and length too.

Looks really good! 48" minimum, 50mph, that's the sort that my oldest would be willing to try. Love the theming. This should be fun.

Why? They just told us about a very immersive, one of the most immersive attractions and you're worried about height and length lol?!?

Also, I wonder if they are standing in part of the ride/queue? This should definitely be one of those attractions that have a different feel between riding in the daytime or at night. I can't wait!

They are catering to people who want an immersive Harry Potter adventure, not a bunch of roller coaster nerds who lather themselves in coaster stats. Honestly, WHO CARES what the height and length is??? Will that make it a better or worse ride? No.

I am simultaneously delighted by this side-splittingly hilarious phrase and horrified by the mental image it brings me. Thanks, Robb. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Way to make a first impression on me Mr. Alvey, the legend, which speaks...

Since when was I saying this ride would be better/worse based on its stats? I just want to know how high that spike is and how long the track will be. 50mph is quite a substantial speed for a “family coaster”. :|

You're welcome. It is also going to be your last impression because I have zero patience for people like you...

Right?! It's amazing how the whole area for the ride has been filled in with the greenery and water, too. It'll be so much fun flying around the trees and over the ponds.

I feel like 1200 live trees is a very impressive amount of theming for a coaster!
