New video of Universal's Wizarding World of Harry Potter
Universal Orlando today released a new video of Universal Creative's Mark Woodbury walking through Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey
, opening officially on June 18 and soft-opening who-knows-when:
Wow. This may be better than I first thought. It looks like Universal took Disney's idea from Toy Story Mania and is going to allow some interaction while waiting in line. I still may wait another year of so to try it out. Can't wait to hear what those who go during the soft and grand opening think.
Very nice, but STILL no shots of the ride vehicles or what will actually occur during the ride.
I can see some terrible vandalism ruining that line.
June 18 can't come soon enough.
Beautiful queue, though I could hardly pay attention while Mark's hands were flailing around.
Marks hands should have been in 3D
I'm not TOO worried about vandalism. I'm fairly certain that there's going to be no small degree of security in the queue. You can probably slip by with sticking your bubblegum to any number of nooks and crannies, but I'd imagine your chances of sneaking out of Dumbledore's office with a book without getting caught and thrown out of the park are slim to none.
That's a rule I wouldn't mind seeing imported from Universal Studios Singapore - no gum in the parks. (Chewing gum is, famously, illegal throughout Singapore.) I know from my time at Disney that WDW doesn't sell the stuff, but telling people that they can't even bring it inside any park would be an improvement.
Only problem with that is that there are always people that ignore the rules, anyway. ;)
I really wish penalties for tagging and vandalism would be tougher outside of parks. I have no problem with banning chewing or bubble gum at a park... not sure how it would be enforced other than a search at the entrance... and I'm sure people would say something like they're getting their privacy invaded or something like that. Maybe do it along with a search for weapons and anything similar?
Gum in theme parks? Never gave it a thought, but now that you bought it up. One could, in theri excitement choke on gum. It is never allowed in the pools at the "Y" up here in Maine.
