Hagrid to have virtual queue

I havent seen this discussed anywhere yet, so thought Id post a link to the info

timtracker/virtual-queue...ike-adventure/

It all sounds great, but what if you dont want to use the app?
Im also assuming you can take your phone on the ride with you, if you need to present either your ticket or the barcode in the app.

It can also mean having to schedule where youre going to be, much like Disney. Im assuming you get a slot like an hour or something so you dont need to be right near to it when your times due.
I guess anything that reduces wait time will be a bonus.

There are lockers for large bags but no metal detectors so small bags can be taken on.

There are a couple of rides that use virtual line but I'm not sure how it works exactly but you can only do it in the park via the app but there may also be a booth by the entrance.

Think it works like a fast pass

For the virtual queue I assume it will be like Jimmy Fallon where there are kiosks if you don't want to use the app.

As for phones, on their twitter announcement someone asked about cameras etc. Essentially they are encouraging as few loose items as possible by using lockers. I assume similar to Gringotts.

Thought it was for opening day only as per the Universal press release? Or did I read it wrong?

This is from the official blog and virtual queues start the day after opening day:

"Virtual Line: Beginning June 14, there may be times when our team members ask you to join the Virtual Line on The Official Universal Orlando Resort App to experience Hagrids Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure. This will allow you to enjoy other attractions in the park until its your time to join the queue. Heres how it works:

Step 1: Prior to your arrival, download The Official Universal Orlando Resort App

Step 2: Once youre in Islands of Adventure, open the app and tap the icon for Hagrids Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure. From there, select how many people are in your party, and then select a return time to join the queue. Please note that you have to be in the park in order to secure a return time.

Step 3: Enjoy the other amazing experiences across Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios until your return time arrives.

Step 4: Upon your return time, head to the designated attraction entrance, where you will wait for your ride. The remainder of your wait time will be posted at the entrance when you arrive. All you have to do is scan your Virtual Line pass on your mobile device, and then youre ready to join the queue."

It just mentions They also announced that starting June 14th the ride will operate with the use of a virtual queue.

Suggests to me that its going forward, not just opening day.
