    The impressive scale within Gringott's queue



    The queue includes a scene similar to Disaster with physical sets with the transparent projection screen tech.

    The queue also has elevators with effects... think classic hyrolators!

          This place is amazing...UC has really stepped it up. My only real gripe is the dragon above gringotts doesn't move. Yes an outdoor animatronic of that scale in Florida would probably go disco dragon within months, but still...a little movement would have been nice.

              The first photo's and video's are amazing. Universal Creative appears to have spent their $300+ million budget well. It's almost like Comcast is miffed they did not get Disney and this is how they are going to get even.

                I have a dream. A dream to go to Universal next year. Stay onsite, and immerse myself in all things "Potter". The question is, "How much stuff/video/pictures/articles do I want to view in the meantime"?

                As much as I can.

                Thanks for the links.

                      Did I hear American accents in Universal's England? Bad show. Give them group, one-hour English accent lessons for the dozen things they'll say the most often. Move the ones who can't do it. Audition future CM's (after a quick pronunciation video), and send the most English-sounding Americans to work in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

                      This is a no brainer.

                          No way Universal will train hundreds of CM's how to speak a proper British dialect. I graduated from acting school, and it takes more then an hour video to get it right. I think in the end it would be much worse show to have people botching an accent as opposed to sounding the same and easily understood. If anything, they should just try to focus on clear diction.

                            It looks absolutely amazing! I'm trying to go in September, and I was going to get 2 1/2 days at UNI and then run over for 2 days at WDW, but honestly now I'm thinking I'd rather spend the entire time a UNI so I have more time to explore this.

                              it would be a lot cheaper too... UNI's ticket costs are almost trivial once you get past 2 days. Only $10 more per day on a 2 park ticket.
