Midway Mayhem blogger Daniel Leavelle said the drivers would sit upright without a shoulder strap.
"You will see trees, animatronics, different scenes, fire effects, and smoke," Leavelle said. He said that fans of popular books and movies will also see well-known characters.
"Hagrid is of course in the name, so I'm sure he'll star in. I would not be surprised to see some of the other characters out of line," Leavelle said.
Leavelle added that he would not be surprised to see a gentle opening sometime in May, but Universal has not confirmed that.
Universal is in the middle of a construction boom. In January, WFTV.com reported for the first time that the park is shining for a new roller coaster ride in the Jurassic Park area of the Islands of Adventure.

Meanwhile, internal documents show that the park has a much larger extension on newly purchased land on the other side of I -4 plans. The park is well-defined over the 540-acre land near Lockheed Martin, but internal documents sent to the Blog Orlando Park Shop indicate that the park is about to become a weeklong holiday destination.
