“Fun roller coaster”

Flight of the Hippogriff
Ranked #295 of 605 things to do in Los Angeles
Attraction details
Reviewed May 28, 2018 via mobile

The flight of the Hippogriff is a simple but short and speedy roller coaster.... it is so fast that it is almost over too soon! (The actual time of the ride is just over one minute and reaching a speed just under
29 miles per hour...
Hang onto your hats!!

Certainly not worth the wait time of 55 mins. The coaster is very short any only lasts seconds. If you’re a die hard HP fan do it, but don’t wait inline too long.

We arrived at the park for early entry at just the right time. We had barely reached where the crowd was gathered when they released the flood gates and the masses headed for The Wizarding World. While the majority of guests made a beeline for Forbidden Journey, we decided to grab a quick ride on Hippogriff instead.

It's a short family coaster that's over just as it's getting started, but Hippogriff provides a comfortable and smooth ride. The theming surrounding this otherwise standard roller coaster is excellent. True Harry Potter fans would probably appreciate it more than I (or perhaps if you had to wait more than zero minutes to get on the train).

It was a perfectly low key start to our first Universal visit in over five years.

The ride is really short and there's nothing special about this one. So a bit boring I might say. Nothing even close to the other Harry Potter ride.

Although a small ride, we wanted the full Harry Potter experience so got in the queue. It's mum friendly which is nice and judging by the mum behind us swearing away, she had fun!
