Robert and Domineck, that was an excellent video! I hope it's the first of many more.

This would be great if the sound mix had been done properly.
The music is much too loud for Robert to be heard from beginning to end, or for his line of thought to be followed without interruption. The musical score is great, but it's drowning him out for most of the duration.

It sounded okay to me, but if you can't hear me that's my bad for not bringing a decent-enough mic and voice recorder for the audio track. My first choice didn't work and I didn't have a good enough back up. We did the best we could with a weak audio track.

That said, I consider drowning out my voice to be a feature, not a bug. :-)

Next time, I'm just putting the whole thing through Auto-Tune for my personal version of "T-Pain's Theme Park Tour"! /kidding

Hey Robert this is Brian Lochridge I can't find my login tonight. I'm a regular themepark insider reader and poster. Funny thing is my wife and I say you filming this. As we were walking in that day I said I hope I see Robert I would love to meet him. As we were leaving the Wizarding world for the day you were filming the piece by the train. I looked and looked and thought "is that Robert?" "na that’s not him I’ve never seen him film anything. Sure enough you are even in the background of some of our pictures we had someone take of us. I missed my chance to thank you in person but I will now. Thank you for this site and the joy it brings to so many.

My wife and I were able to experience everything in the new island and I have to say I'm more than impressed. I was literally shaking when I walked in I was so excited. Can't remember the last time that has happened. Forbidden journey is simply the best ride ever created.

Not sure if you saw the leaflet drop they did but my wife watched in amazement as I hurdled the wall in front of Three Broomsticks to snag one out of the air. They were from the night before but it will make for a nice one of a kind keep sake. It's an offical invitation from Minerva McGonagall to a special event at the castle gates.

Well I have to say the Trip was amazing, we avoided going on opening day since we had seen it all the day before. I can say when we made our way over to City Walk @ 10:00 am the line to get into the park was all the way to Margaretville. I have never seen anything like it.

Thanks again Robert

PS Butter Beer does indeed have bits of Crack in it, that’s why it's sooo good.
