    Everything you see is still very much a work in progress so expect some hiccups along the way. For more information (and some quick tips on how to get started), check out Nicole's post on the topic, here.

Themed multi-launch with a drop track? Sounds an awful lot like Verbolten and even the video makes the comparison.

However, I trust Intamin and Universal to build a great ride and create great theming respectively.

Here's a construction update about the replacement coaster with some interesting speculations about theming, etc.

I can say this is pretty much almost to the point. Expect to see a massive Fluffy, as to so far more Intamin track is here, especially the tire launch sections, as well as more dark trees are here also. As for the train, nothing yet, which we are thinking may be revealed at IAAPA this year. If I remember I will post someones Youtube video from Planet Coaster, or remind me I am currently out at Universal Hollywood until June 14th.

Of course the launches will be faster, after the track spike drop backwards, you will go to Devil's Snare with more going on, but these people have done a really good job from taking the video from AliciaSteele and put in good parts. Also, there will be a coaster coming to JP also I believe 2020. I m hoping for my B&M launched wing coaster based on the raptors (BLUE)

Certainly all the news coming out on this is fantastic and it sounds like it's going to be such a great unique experience.....but not at the expense of my dragons. I was there opening weekend and marathoned that crap out of that.

One thing I am very worried with this ride: With the transfer tracks and drop track rumors.....what's the capacity going to be like? It's going to have to be impeccably timed for them and no hold ups to keep the capacity moving.

If any park can handle timing on a ride this complex, it's Universal. The upside of the screen-heavy rides is that Universal has a ton of experience with keeping the lines flowing, the trains coming, and downtime minimal. Admittedly they've done a way better job with Forbidden Journey than with Gringotts...but let's hope that the more straightforward ride system of this ride helps them out.
