Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey ride at Wizarding World
by Mark R
In case you can’t wait for Star Tours to re-open again, then you should probably check out the one attraction that everyone wants to visit: The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
The one ride that seems to have a blend of a lot of interesting rides with Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey.
The ride is a mix of many rides including “The Many Adventures of Spider-Man” from Universal which uses a lot of CG. It also uses the tech of “Soarin'”, a ride at EPCOT where the spectator sits in a seat hovered above a giant screen to generate the illusion of flying.
Mixed in with the more modern ride technology are those animatronics, a staple for parks like Disneyland. In the Forbidden Journey, the animatronics are giant spiders, dragons, and the Dementors. That part might scare the younger ones. It also features some air blasts, smoke, and water.
This ride is about four minutes long, and the plot is about Hagrid and a lost dragon, or something that hopefully J.K. Rowling approved of.
Well, I would imagine that this ride will be in the spotlight, and I am so certain that you’ll be waiting in line for a long time to get into this one. I remember that I was in Disneyland when Star Tours had its first year, and I waited at least an hour and a half. This was before we had mobile devices to keep us occupied in lines.
