    The 3D added nothing to the experience. The 4K 120fps update is far more beneficial to the ride.

    Honestly, I do miss the 3D, but I wish they'd have done it better. Too much of it it looked a little blurry. Of course I'm pushing 50 and my eyes are not great (I need contacts for distance and reading glasses for up close!) so that might have been me. But maybe they can improve the 3D and bring it back at some point.

    As someone who doesn't get motion sick easily, the 3D was actually pretty useful; even as it was fussy putting it on over my glasses, I found that the way the 3D glasses made everything in the ride less contrasted actually helped in terms of transitioning between the sets/practical effects and the screens (which are really bright compared to the rest of the ride in my opinion).

    The 2D version is still nice, and I prefer it more if only because people who have motion sickness can enjoy the ride more, but there are moments now in the ride that are simply not as convincing anymore because it's too easy to see through the darkness now (i.e. being able to see the screen before actually being in front of it in some points, traveling through the Floo Network at the end and seeing both green whirlpools, etc.).

    Love it without the 3d. The glasses really get in the way of the practical effects.

    To be fair, the "tech" is essentially Indy, but instead of a traditional "vehicle" mounted to a track, Universal mounted a third-party's robot arm to a track.

I really was looking forward to this attraction, and it was a major disapointment that I couldn't enjoy it. I really wanted to.
    I think many would also like a tamer option. I already had to tell a few people, based on knowing their tolerances in past theme park rides, that this is tough for motion sickness and may be something to skip.

    If anyone is worried about screen motion sickness but they still want to try (even for a second time), I recommend what my best friend told me after I got quesy from my first ride : Try to pick/ focus on specific points on the screen rather than on the general action. It helped enough that I can get through the ride and enjoy the other parts without needing recovery once the ride is over.

    I feel it is too fast. I am not 18 anymore and I feel rushed trying to get on.

    Actually, it moves the same speed as the vehicles.

    Technically, I imagine speeding up the belts would increase capacity. Though FJ seems to have been designed with the higher speed in mind, both for the attraction itself, as well as the loading. While it moves briskly, the loading area is very long, generally giving ample time for people to get situated. Other omnimover rides don't have as long of a loading area, and they would not be served in the attraction that way.

    I think when Lucy said the belt moves "too fast"she meant that it moves faster than the actual vehicles. If it's moving faster than the vehicles then it's not going to do anything to increase capacity since that is only going to be affected by the speed of the vehicles, and the efficiency of the loading. I suspect that if the belt is moving faster than the vehicles, then it is not happening by design.
    Should Disney speed up the loading belts on all of their omnimover rides? Will that increase capacity?

    Kill it with fire....the 3D added nothing since it was not filmed in 3D...just made people throw up and more blurry

The effects are amazing (to me). I will concede you do have a point about larger riders, but that is not a unique problem in this day and age. Plus, given the motions of the ride, what other restraint system would you suggest?
    Since I already wear glasses, adding 3D always gives an awkward extra bulk on my nose and around my vision.

    You have a good point about the ride system keeping the line brisk. I once went where there're was over an hour wait, but it was very bearable (aside from the queue) because it just kept moving. It's got the efficiency of an omnimover since there is not stop/unload for each bench.

    Maybe they shouldn't have subcontracted the work out.
    I enjoy the ride, but to be honest, my favorite parts kind of are walking through the queue (though I would make the argument that real E ticket attraction is land/surroundings itself). I don't have a problem with system, especially now that 3D has been removed, but my biggest complaint is actually the flow of story, which is literally all over the place.

    I think Gringotts is by far the superior Potter ride in terms of system and story. Too bad it wouldn't go with the castle.

    Now that Universal Hollywood has removed 3D from forbidden journey, what do you think?

    Personally, I liked that they tried to up the ante with 3D; however, it just made it harder to sit through without the nausea and the screen never felt clear. However, I will miss the little goggles (in one respect, they helped block out some muggle effects).
