Not the there but according to the universal app it's still open at 6:15pm Orlando time with a 90 min wait which is promising.

We joined the queue at 60 mins straight from rope drop but it took 2 1/2 hours to get on the ride. That was on Friday morning.

The main gate is fine as you are in proper lines waiting to be scanned and the stampede to Seuss is more spread out but the Seuss part was awful and I really felt for families with young kids. The cast members do shout do not run but most people dont take any notice. Im so pleased I was able to just pop on at re-opening and it was fabulous experiencing it at night time.

We managed to get on again this morning: did the same as last week and arrived for opening, this time there werent any crowds at Seuss, just lots of fast walkers. Last week there were crowds but no argy-bargy and certainly no sardines. We didnt see any actually running at all either last week or today. The queue started just into Lost Continent and kept moving most of the time. The biggest bundle last week was when we got to the lockers just by entrance to Hogsmead. This morning however, the cast members pointed out that there were more lockers just at the start of the proper entrance and we continued on to those ones. Myself and one of our group took everyone elses belongings and went ahead to the lockers, then rejoined the queue as our party caught up. Have to say that later in the day, there was no queue at all outside the entrance to the ride which would make me think that the wait from there would be about 1.5 - 2 hours. We asked a cast member about the wait times and she said they tend to put 120+/180+ time up as generally it will get to that point at some point through the day, and it may not actually take that time if there are no glitches... make of that what you will. If you can manage a wait and have the time, I would say it is def worth it - all members of our party (aged from 62 down to 11) scored the ride 10/10 (which is why we queued up on our last morning to ride it again - also because we dont know if well ever get back...)

Nope, weve ridden twice now and both times turned up in the afternoon (3:30 yesterday) when weve seen the queue time showing 120 mins. First time we were on and off in 55mins and yesterday we had not long joined when it was stopped for bad weather. We decided to wait it out and 30 mins later it was up and running again. 45 mins later and we were on. Just to help, once you reach the building and get inside all going well youve got around 45 to 50 minutes until you ride.

Hi,
We rode it yesterday 31/8, line showed 180mins this was at 8.15pm, we joined it and started queuing just outside the building, 20 mins or so later there was an announcement to say it had stopped due to weather, lots of people left, we stayed, 5 mins later the ride was back up and running. We finally got on at 9.40pm so about 1 hour 30 mins. The ride is fantastic, so pleased we managed to get on it. I would say I found the queuing a bit boring, a couple of large rooms and lots of long dark corridors, the noise from people queuing is also really loud but it was worth it.

I have been here since Saturday evening, spent 6 hours in the park yesterday, but avoided Hagrids, managed to get on just about everything I wanted to on single rider. Today I got to the park at 8:30, and did Forbidden Journey and Kong, before I decided to bite the bullet and queue for Hagrids. Posted time was 210 minutes, and the queue was outside the main entrance and looped along the wall behind the wand shop. At the entrance they were warning of 3.5 to 4 hours queue. It took an hour to get into the building, and then 45 minutes later I was on the ride! Absolutely fantastic ride, and certainly worth the wait. Going to try for an evening/dusk ride if I can later in the week.
