Probably^ Maybe a long show scene before the drop so two are needed?


I just cant see how you’d spread out a stop on the drop track and then drop

There are rumours of something along the lines of "devils snare" which could definitely have a little pre-scene to explain what is going on before the fall through the tangles.

It looks like the entire area may become walkable. This would provide some amazing angles. :)

Fun fact: That's actually the former Beastie from Alton Towers.

But back on topic, this is what the Abbey style building currently looks like:

Interesting aerial construction update as the trains for the coaster have been spotted, albeit under wraps:

From looking at the outline of the train, this is looking like a motorbike coaster, probably themed to Hagrid's motorcycle. The train seen is 7 cars long with each car seating 2 rider per car resulting in 14 riders per train.

Seems almost as if they're pulling the train through while theming construction is going on. Wonder if they're checking clearance as well.

Hopefully, we are not too far away from Universal revealing the full details about this and most importantly, the name.
