That would be a great addition. Heck, anything with fire is a good addition. I love the Orlando Mummy's fire ceiling.

I'll do a full review when I'm not on my phone in the airport, but in short:

Winners of Hhn: resident evil and werewolf.

Just below: evil dead, la Llorna, walking dead

Above average, but still underwhelming: havoc

Disappointment: cabin in the woods.

wtf: undead

Scare zones were weak. Bill and teds was great.

Wow, I'm very curious to see your full review. Honestly, I think I was at the complete end of the spectrum. Can't wait!
Baby, I'm howlin' for you.

I got some great scares in Cabin, so I absolutely loved it.

The scare zone between Mel's and the Walking Dead maze was also pretty good. There seemed to be tons of scare actors, the rest were eh. The chainsaw guys between Simpsons and MIB were incredibly hit, but not very scarey.

Hogwarts Express arrives at Universal Orlando!
Details: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151739903522852.1073741856.90867402851&type=1
The Hogwarts Express has arrived at Universal! The iconic locomotive and train tender was placed on the tracks between the two theme parks today.

Just like in the books and films – guests will be able to board the Hogwarts Express and travel between The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade, which is open at Islands of Adventure, and ‘London’ when The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley opens at Universal Studios Florida next year.

I suspect the Hogwarts Express is going to be the breakout attraction once this expansion opens. Unlike Gringotts Coaster and Forbidden Journey there will likely be no height requirement and absolutely everybody is going to want to take the train between the parks. I wonder if they will restrict entry to guests with a park-to-park ticket?

This is exactly why they will limit it to two park ticket holders.

Yes, that's how it will work. Think of it like being the monorail from MK to Epcot. You need a ticket to get in.
