    The train ride was fabulous! I felt like I was going to hogwarts😊 and the town is awesome! Go to leaky cauldron for the best food! I recommend butter beer, and despite the name it has no beer in it

    love this ride, if you're an hp fan get in early and walk through the regular line or go to the single rider if the wait time is too long

    Nice place to go in Orlando

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

    This is honestly my fav of the two Harry Potter rides! I get a little screamy every time!!

    Kassandra · October 5
  • Teresa T.

    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!!

  • Leo C.

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

  • Kerry-Ann

    The frozen butter beer!

    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

    If you have motion sickness you should NOT ride

  • 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.

  • Nely R.

    Amazing! >_<

    Nely Reyes · March 29
  • 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
  • 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
  • Arun N.

    Best attraction amongst both Universal parks

    Arun Nandi · February 24
  • Benjie B.

    Rain and Cold but still fun.! 👍

    You finally get the chance to enter the castle... How awesome you get the chance to enter Hogwarts? Amazing for the witches and wizards... For the muggles not so much.

    Ale Cantalapiedra · January 10
  • Ron B.

    The best period! Enjoyed every minute

    Ron Broussard · January 6
  • Dave S.

    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.

  • Andy W.

    Great great great! Best time to visit, right in the early morning when the park has opened.

    Andy Weirich · January 5
  • Kaitlin T.

    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!

    Kaitlin T · January 4
  • Joselyn D.

    If you love harry potter you have to come here is an awsome experience and the ride is super cool

  • Ria U.

    Harry Potter's wizarding world is so magical! Go there with a few friends and enjoy the magic! Hogsmeade has a great setting! And I loved Diagon ally! I felt like a kid again!

    Ria Urbon · January 3
  • Josie R.

    This ride is awesome if you've read the Harry Potter books or watched the movies! There are small details from all the books as you got through the ride!

    This one was alright but the wait was crazy!
