Excellent ride and whole 'village' very good...felt very 'processed' though as need to turnover clients as fast as possible... Exiting ride difficult for less robust/steady on feet...ok for us but not everyone, so beware :)

I went to Harry potter ride on 20/07/2014. I was horrible to wait there for 4 hours in the queue. When I reached there very close to the ride it broke down. The bottle of water was for 4 dollars four times the price. What a rip off. I was so hungry and tired. The ride attendant had no authority... More

Harry Potter World in Islands of Adventure and now Universal is not to be missed by those who have loved the books and/or movies. It is quite unbelievable! The attention to detail is remarkable! The only down side is the wait time for the rides. We got early admission and still stood in line for 3 hours before getting on... More

All I can say is, THE FORBIDDEN JOURNEY ride is probably the best ride of all in Universal Studios! The line gets long but it is very well worth the wait! Upon entering the Wizarding world you see the Hogwarts Express which is awesome - you can even get a photo! Make sure you do. Then you get into Diagon... More

Even though I'm not a Harry Potter fan the WwoHP was wonderfully done. Best Value for your money. Stay at Cabana Bay (universals new hotel) its only $99 for Florida residents right now and you get into the park an hour before it opens to explore the WwoHP. Then when the other crowds rush in you can do all can... More

I could not get over the theatrics of everything. Well worth the wait. Hogsworth Express Train was astonishing. Must see.

Visited the wizarding world this summer...and was completely blown away. This part of Islands of Adventure originally a medieval times themed with rides such as the flying unicorn and dueling dragons. The park has been completely re-imagined with every details from both the movie and book at every corner. Because its new, the lines are expected for the attractions such... More

Hogsmeade and Hogwarts have been recreated in stunning detail and the attractions are just as amazing! the Forbidden Journey is a one of a kind simulator and definitely worth queuing for. Dragon Challenge was one of the best coasters I've ever ridden- if you can, then go for front row! Flight of the Hippogriff was disappointing and not worth the... More

We loved every second of our trip to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. We highly recommend a park to park pass and the Universal Studios Package (if still available). Three Broomsticks is a must-eat-at-place. Also Butterbeer at Hog's Head is a must. There is a lot of walking and crowds but if you plan ahead the line of people... More
