i'm thinking that little rollercoaster (flight of the hippogriff) is going to be the unicorn one ( i like it lol) and i'm wondering what Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey is going to entail.

I need to go and se this , I was excited for a week when they announced the new Lego game wold be Harry Potter - the whole family is Potter mad at the moment.

Still think it should have been in England though, this was our one big chance to make it huge on the international Theme Park scene.

I had one of my very 'male' fantasies about if I was a Billionaire making a huge theme park with Hogwarts in the middle and everyone 'sorted' at the gate.
