New Harry Potter Coaster Confirmed for 2019 (Dragon's Challenge Closing Sept 4th)

The area currently complained of looks like an ingress/egress point for construction materials and vehicles, adjacent to what may be a temporary wooden bridge.

I don’t really know. My mostly baseless guess would be that the equipment size requirements grew late in the design process and had to be worked into an otherwise locked down design. The coaster layout has to be locked down far enough in advance for it to be manufactured. The new track layout also encompasses the entire plot left behind by Dragon Challenge and is anything but level (and it goes down too, not up).

Those small outbuilding(s) are almost definitely electrical equipment for the launches. The transformers and other control equipment need to be nearby because there are tons of high-voltage circuits running from them to the fins on the track. The farther away they are, the more expensive the wiring gets to run. Too far away and it's also possible that the electrical losses between the transformers and the track are too great to be operational.

you specifically chose a blown-out photo to make them look beige

So you can see the color. He is literally brown in the movie lol even in the darker image you posted you can see that he is brown with black stripes. The ride fluffy is jet black.

Not to mention the heads look different. Like different shapes? And where are the patterns? It’s just odd that they have taken care to match the films in every way but this looks like they took creative liberties.

I don’t care really. It’s just an odd choice.

Don't agree with the heads being different. Seem spot on to me. And he's not black.

I’m aware of the type of equipment they hold. That though does not explain positioning them so close to the track. The box was either always that big and no one cared or it got bigger than anticipated.

What difference does the building's size make? You'd still see the side with a door either way.
