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.

presumably the video is a sample of what we will see inside the simulator.

Forbidden Forest is pretty much confirmed with this release from the park.
Also not all in parts of the Forbidden Forest, but the Hogwarts grounds, and if you look close to the concept art you can notice the ruins. The original pic on here is not from a Uni release but actually from an all thing Potter site,, I believe its called Pottermore.com. All things considering too I will try to post some pics if I can or you can actually follow Bioreconstruct on Twitter, he has some amazing construction pics from above as well as some of the part of the ruins show house. Lots of trees have been going up to hide views from people taking pics and also as part of the theming. Bring on the Cornish Pixies, Devil's Snare, Fluffy and other Magical Creatures.
This was from Orlando Attraction Tickets site:
