I can't remember Universal having wifi... or am wrong? I just remember being there and not having any connection on my phone and refusing to turn on my roaming data... Is this still the case or am I confused? Will be expensive to do if I have to use my roaming data as clearly I will need to make sure I can access the app... again, maybe I'm wrong.

We were thinking of buying Express for this ride but have Universal app on phone and happy that will be able to get a time and plan our day around it, especially as one of us wont be riding. We were there in September 2018 and found the WiFi fine in both Universal and Islands of Adventure.

Yup there is wifi, it isn't as slick as Disney's in that you need to login a number of times. Being all geeky they don't seem to have roaming setup as well as Disney, probably using different controllers that aren't part of a cluster. The connections are generally fine though.

It's a family coaster so no upside down. Just plenty of launches and twists and turns.

Yes there is and it is a far better app than Disney and much better wifi coverage.

We have 2 day FOLP for Universal. How will it effect us? Will we still need to queue or do we still get FOLP?

I have the same question, although I suspect the answer is that FOLP will not apply to this ride just yet.

Also, say we book our time on the app when we go to the park first thing, can we go back to our hotel (HRH) in the middle of the day and then return, or will the app know that we've left the park and cancel our queue spot?

And I was planning on going on our first evening (not flight day, just Universal arrival day) but I would imagine with this system all of the virtual queue spots for the day will have been taken by the time we arrive around 3-4pm?
