    i wonder what the state of the art ride will be? i hope it's not just a big rollercoaster. Flying broomsticks would be cool -oh i know- u sit on a broomstick and you play quiditch in a simulator type thing

    I just hope they do the whole thing so we can truly emerse ourselves in the "world" :D I've loved the books, a little less the films and think it will be a great theme if done properly

    When your at IoA you can't see anything apart from a massive structure that looks like it's gonna be a big box, like a wharehouse type of place, hope it improves!

    I think its a shame they didn't open a dedicated theme park in the UK to the whole franchise - would have been our chance to put ourselves internationally on the Theme park map
