    Although it is a walk, take the normal line at least once. The detail from the books is great as you walk in.

    Com ambientação perfeita é a melhor atração dos parques da Universal. Fique atento ao sopro do dementador: é possível ver sua alma sendo sugada.

    I loved the wizarding experience here and everything Harry Potter! It certainly was one of the most enchanting ways to connect with 10 of my young nephews and nieces as an adult. Don't miss out on it!

    Best ride in Orlando (including Disney)... you will really feel you're in the castle, even the line will leave you speechless... it's a MUST DO!

  • Caroline C.

    This ride is SO worth the wait!! I rode it three times in a day. However, if you get to the park at the time it opens and run to the ride you will have little to no wait left!!

    can be a little scary for the kids but great ride! may not be the ride for you if you have motion sickness.

    Para mí punto de vista el mejor lo vives, sientes además de un castillo que vale la pena conocer, en los lockers tienes una hora y media gratis. Tienes que vivirlo

    Renan Arjona · August 27
  • Ирина И.

    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!!

  • Bonny P.

    Fantastic representation of the Harry Potter world!

    Bonny Pooh · August 21
  • Marilyne G.

    The ride was splendiferous!!! Also the Beauxbatons and Durmstrang show made me cry... But maybe I'm just a super fan.

  • Valeria A.

    This was by far one of the most amazing rides I have ever been on not only was the ride que so detailed but the whole experience makes you feel like your really at Hogwarts with the trio :)

    Michael Hayden · June 23
  • Brett G.

    My personal favorite for both the view and the ride. It's a must do. The sorting hat is inside, along with other movie related items.

    Brett Garwood · June 15
  • Ivar M.

    Great journey through the world of Harry Potter.

    Ivar Merilo · June 14
  • Steven V.

    Awesome attraction, it's really worth the wait on line

    Steven Vega · June 12
  • Francis G.

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

    Francis Gulotta · May 24
  • Kunjan P.

    Best ride across both Universal parks!

    Kunjan Punatar · May 23
  • Rodrigo L.

    If you have motion sickness you should NOT ride

    Rodrigo López · May 10
  • Frank P.

    Muy bueno 😜!!

  • Alexandra G.

    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.

  • Hemanuela M.

    Simulador do Harry Potter eh a melhor atração na minha opinião! Nenhum simulador bateu ele! Vale a pena....

  • Matheus Z.

    Eu amei esse brinquedo, adrenalina pura.

    Matheus Zago · March 31
  • Nely R.

    No olviden que los lockers están del castillo a la derecha, cobran por hr, aceptan tarjetas :)

    Nely Reyes · March 29
  • Nely R.

    Amazing! >_<

    Nely Reyes · March 29
  • Maria Ines R.

    Realidad virtual en 3D! Te hace sentir parte de la aventura! Mientras haces fila paseas por el castillo de Hogwarts y puedes tomar fotos. Vale la pena la fila!

    Maria Ines Ruiz · March 29
  • Nely R.

    No dejan meter cosas, déjenlas en los lockers :)

    Nely Reyes · March 28
  • Danielle F.

    O melhor lugar HP!! Eu amo .. Melhor de todosss disparado

    Danielle França · March 22
  • Tejasvi P.

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

    Tejasvi Parupudi · March 16
  • Silvia B.

    É o melhor do parque!

  • Gabri B.

    I loveeeee it

    Gabri Barbena · March 12
  • Ross B.

    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.

    Ross Burnett · March 9
  • 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.

    Christina · March 8
  • 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.

    Alex Schrameyer · March 6
  • Helio M.

    Excelente local, muito legal

    Helio Milani · March 2
  • Arun N.

    Best attraction amongst both Universal parks

    Arun Nandi · February 24
  • ANDRÉ B.

    Valeu a pena a visita.

    ANDRÉ BRITO · February 21
  • Roberta M.

    O melhor simulador do parque a fila é grande mas vale a pena. Imperdível!!!!

    Roberta MarXs · February 21
  • Rodrigo F.

    Simulador imperdível, assim como as duas montanhas russas invertidas. Cerveja amanteigada é estupidamente doce, cuidado

    Rodrigo Faustino · February 14
