Description And Comments

An outdoor, elevated coaster designed for children old enough to know about Harry Potter but not yet tall enough to ride Forbidden Journey. The coaster affords excellent views of the area within Wizarding World and of Hogwarts. As a children's coaster, there are no loops, inversions or rolls and it's just one big hill and some mild turns. The theming is also very good, considering this isn't a major attraction. Almost half of the one-minute ride time is spent going up the lift hill.

For fans of Harry Potter there are two gorgeous items in this attraction that you will want to see. The first is a faithful recreation of Hagrid's hut in the queue (complete with Fang howling) while the second is an incredible animatronic of Buckbeak that you pass by while on the ride. Remember, that when muggles encounter Hippogriffs like Buckbeak, proper etiquette must always be maintained to avoid any danger. Hippogriffs are extremely proud creatures and must be showed the proper respect by bowing to them, and waiting for them to bow in return.

Touring Tips

Something for small children to do while older kids ride Forbidden Journey or Dragon Challenge. Not usually more than a 20-minute wait, even during the busy part of the day.

Special Comments

Must be 36" tall to ride.
