  • Pretty good ride that I'd recommend for most people (with the exception being really young kids, this ride might scare them). Usually one of the longest waiting times within the park, but at least you can look around at parts of the castle while in the queue (Yes. You go inside Hogwarts Castle as part of the queue) The ride itself is pretty neat, using a mix of facing an immersive screen and some physical props. The ride itself will whip you around a bit but nothing horrible with the help of over-the-shoulder restraints. Luckily there are lockers you can get for free during this ride for bags and stuff, but if you decide to hang onto your phones, glasses, etc., then hang on to those tightly.
  • One of the best rides! The walk through of the castle is so cool! Unfortunately, this ride has one of the longest lines ever so I recommend you come in the morning.
