Be careful with night rides as on Sunday night the queue has already shut by 7.30pm and the park was open until 9pm. Although will continue to quieten down as most American schools starting back this week and next week. It’s already quieter than end of last week.I'm also going to Universal in a few weeks time and really looking forward to these, Terminator was always super so will be interesting to see if Bourne is as good.
I'm expecting to get some night rides on Hagrids just to try and avoid the queues too!
Have done all three of new rides/show again today. The Bourne show was even better as noticed more things this time. It really is an incredible show.
Asked for a back row on velicoaster today which they allowed and again was simply incredible especially the second launch and being pulled over the top hat, plus that final inversion of the water is just insane. It’s a relentless ride from start to finish. Definitely my top coaster. I think when Alton add their next thrill coaster something like this would perfect- obviously can’t do a 150ft top hat but a multi launch coaster with compact start and then a second high speed launch into some similar crazy elements. Will see how Iron Gwazi is tomorrow and which I prefer.
Hagrids is also faster than I realised from the POV I had seen. 12 years on and the Harry Potter areas are still packed and Universal making a fortune with merchandise and butter beer. I can see why they would want to add an additional area at Epic Universe.
One thing I was thinking about is how they will differentiate the Mack launched coaster going in at epic universe well I know it will be a Dueling coaster I still think It will need something to ensure different experience- I initially thought it could be a Mack extreme spinner but they are know meant to be adding a standard Mack spinner so don’t think it will be that, I suspect it could be a one of the new Big Dipper wing coasters like europas new coaster. Would also be Florida’s first wing coaster.
