Harry Potter Entrance

    Interesting article. One thing though. That shot doesn’t “reveal a first look at the test seats”. Those seats were first seen and analysed about 2 months ago, in some aerial photos.

      Then perhaps it reveals a first ground-level look at them? 🙂

    Right, yes that may be the first ground-level look at the test seats. What’s more interesting is this frame grab; a look at the actual seats of the Forbidden Journey ride with Emma Watson and Co. actually sitting in the vehicle:

      Very true. Thanks for posting that. I’ve been told that the video of the stars touring the Wizarding World that was made available to local TV stations should also be released online later today, so I was waiting to reference that then rather than pulling it from the other sites.

        It IS online already. Don’t you follow me on Twitter? Check my feed, the link’s in there 😉

    Here’s another image of the gang on the Forbidden Journey ride. It’s amazing how the ride mechanics are completely hidden from view. You’d have no idea that bench is at the end of a massive robotic arm, on top of a massive tripod, attached to a dark-ride track!


  4. I’ve never been to Universal… but with Hogwarts there that’s going to change. Do I wait about a year so the crowds simmer down though?

      The Wizarding World will certainly be busy over the summer, but it’s hard to say what will happen during September when kids return to school. I imagine it will still be crowded from locals visiting, but not as many tourists. However, when Halloween Horror Nights begins near the end of September, it will likely once again get very busy through the rest of the year. If you want to avoid crowds, I’d recommend early September or wait until January.
