^ All those trees are definitely going to add to the mystery and excitement as to what is around the bend. Like hiking in a deep forest awaiting what's up ahead. The fear, or joy, of not knowing in other words. Can't wait.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Who would have thought that the guy who self disclosed that he accidentally spelled his own screen name wrong would get banned so quickly?

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.

Maybe you run into the Knights of Ni of "bring me a shrubbery!" fame. The last concept art illustration does look pretty fantastic. Night time rides will be amazing.

Can you see the donkey in my toast?

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. ;)

I Love Donkeys!

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. :Pr
