Okay, so the ride would be much like the system used for Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man. The queue would be themed to the Labrinth in the fourth book. After a long run of queue there is a Pre-Show where Chiron instructs the "recently found half bloods" (the riders) on what their quest will be. After that, they enter a short queue before boarding the cars and putting on the glasses.
The ride would feature important scenes from the first book mostly and it would feature light, #-D, and animatronic effects.
I also had an idea for a Sea of Monsters shoot-em-up dark ride where riders shoot monsters.
There can be NO DOUBT that the UC team has CONSISTENTLY out-paced WDI -- again and again andagain. Hulk, Spiderman, MIB, Mummy.
If Kuka is indeed the vehicle being used for Potter the attraction's success will NOT be because of the vehicle ... it will be because of what Universal Creative DOES with the vehicle.
