As someone already mentioned, I think this thing is really going to be great at night! Especially now with all the trees. I honestly wasn’t expecting Universal to plant very many more trees than there are now so I’m very excited! I can’t wait to see what 1200 trees equates to.
Good news for single riders, that line will probably flow fast. Bad news is you're most likely going to end in a side-car.
I joke, and I know like Robb's pictures, other parks have motorbike/side-car seating but I would hate to be the grouper for this ride. I'm sure for smaller parks you can let people choose and send cars half empty but for the new Harry Potter ride... 'How many in your group? 4. 'Take rows 2 and 3. We all want motorcycle seats. So either the single rider line becomes essentially the 'side car line' or your the poor person telling people who've waited 1-2 hours to take a seat they don't want.
On the plus side at least with Universals strict fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo policy, if you were paired with a single rider, someone can't quickly hop into your motorcycle seat while you're putting a bag onto the shelf.
While the coaster looks a bit on the flat side, the immersive themeing and all the different elements, including all the moments of twistiness, and its length will more than make up for it. Looks like quite an adventure. Never I thought I'd say I'm looking forward to this - but I am!
Encounter some of the wizarding world’s rarest magical creatures, such as a majestic Centaur, a swarm of mischievous Cornish Pixies, Fluffy, the three-headed dog – and even a creature that’s never been seen in the films
Is #whatsintheshed from Kings Island taking an Orlando vacation? I don't blame it.
Also, I love that there will be 1200 trees planted around this. The theming should be stellar! Feelings aside, sounds like it'll be a huge improvement at least theme/scenery-wise from the coaster(s) that shall not be named that previously resided in the area.
And I'm sure Potter fans will be get moist for this ride.

Maybe they can just put up a sign a la Dragons that instead says "choose thy position: sitting or bending over"
Looking forward to riding this at some point, and undoubtedly Universal is going to be f*cking slammed and is going to make tons of money this summer, per usual. I actually appreciate the fact that they've planted 1,200 trees. Universal is single-handedly doing more to fight climate change than the idiot in the white house.

I would die in laughter if Universal had a sign to choose to bend over.
