    Take the single rider q. Much faster and its worth the ability to ride it often so you can pick out something new every time you ride.

    Do not take bags or anything that may fall. If too crowded, go to the gift shop and move through the locker area. And then go straight to single rider. You will save easy 40 min of queue.

    Butter beer is delicious and the shops are fun. On the other hand, if your shoulders are broad, or your arms large, you'll not ride the main attraction.

    Do a single rider ride and then a tour so you can hear all the paintings and be out in no time.

    Extraordinary state of the art simulator / coaster mashup. Incredibly detailed queue area in Hogwarts; lines build quickly with no Express option. Child swap area shows snippets of the first film.

    Going as single riders helped cut down wait time even though the waiting itself was fun due to artifacts in Gryffindor common room.

    A really amazing area with incredible attention to detail. It gets very busy, and would not recommend the ride to those who suffer with motion sickness.
  • Christina

    The ride isn't too great. I think waiting in the line is a much better experience, as odd as that may sound. The opportunity to wander through the castle is fascinating, however.
  • Alex S.

    This attraction utilizes kuka robotic arms (think automated manufacturing) to provide unparralled movement and immersion. The queue is an experience itself and extremely detailed.

    Lots to look at during the wait once you're in the castle. But, arrive immediately at park open for the most reasonable wait time.

    This is my favorite ride for Harry Potter. Don't do the singles line the first time; go through the whole castle to see classrooms, offices, corridors and more. And the ride is incredibly well done!

    Ride at Diagon Alley closed due to tech difficulty & Hogwarts train has been on 9-3/4 platform for at least an hour due to "technical difficulty". Frustrating.

    Remember to put your belongings in a locker before you get in line-ALSO the motion sickness warnings aren't there for shits and giggles-if you're prone just don't do it! Other than that enjoy! ☺️

    Most important tip: choose the singles line so that you go faster as there are big queues. The 3D ride itself is unbelievably good; as if you are actually participating in the movie

    Самый крутой аттракцион на оба парка! Если очередь до часа, пасс не нужен. Сама очередь- отдельный аттракцион, идешь по всему замку и успеваешь насмотреться. Сам аттракцион стоит ожидания на все сто!!
