On a recent trip to Southern California, I was lucky enough to visit Universal Studios and the newly opened Wizarding World of Harry Potter. The Harry Potter themed attraction opened in 2010 in Orlando, Florida, and in April of 2016 in Universal Studios Hollywood. The rides consist of Hogwarts Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey and Flight of the Hippogriff.
The main attraction is the Forbidden Journey ride, which is the most thrilling and fantastic. This 3-D ride has the spooky dementors, the fire-breathing dragon, and the ginormous hairy spiders that spit out venom. The ride is fast and jarring.
My nana, who accompanied me and my friend Katherine, felt nauseous after the ride, but Katherine and I thought it was amazing, The ride Flight of the Hippogriff is an outdoor, circular family rollercoaster that speeds through the air and does many twists and turns.
In Hogsmeade, all the stores await along Diagon Alley for people to buy precious wands, wizard robes, items that reverse time, key chains, and the most delicious caramel-tasting Butter Beer. The Three Broomsticks tavern and the Hog’s Head pub provide British influenced and Harry Potter-style food and drink.
You can also enter the school of Hogwarts, with moving portraits, Dumbledore’s office and images of Harry, Ron and Hermione. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is an unforgettable attraction that will especially excite Harry Potter fans.
