Yes, that was what I thought too.

The cars will be horizontal but the whole track will break away and drop down vertically. Like being on Tower of Terror but only dropping 17 feet.

It seems like it will be reasonably intense. It has that freefall drop already mentioned, 7 quick-launch accelerations, and go 70 degrees upwards and then drop back down backwards. So imagine elements of ToT, Rock'n'Rollercoaster and Everest mixed together.

Also, it has a height restriction of 48 inches. Which is the same as Forbidden Journey, Revenge of the Mummy, and Rock'n'Rollercoaster. So I guess it'll be as intense as those.

That sentence has just made me smile a lot, 3 of my favourite rides!

So now open for business, Universal have done well with this-we were there in September and construction had barely started so for it to be open some 9 months later is good.
Being ultra-critical (and tongue in cheek) the ride vehicles look to shiny and new to belong to Hagrid and the motorbike resembles a mobility scooter!
