Is the Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey ride scary?

I went on the ride today after reading loads of threads online about if it was scary or not. I really don't like big coasters and scary rides, but I have been on a few with my girlfriend whilst I have been out in Orlando.

First thing is first- it is NOT horrible or scary or intense at all. It is the smoothest ride I have ever been on, really feels like gliding around. You WILL go up and down and tilt on your back for a very short time (mere seconds) but it is all so smooth it really does not make you feel bad at all. There are no horrible coaster style drops where your stomach turns. Make sure you ignore the videos as you approach the ride that show the riders going upside down, IT DOES NOT HAPPEN. That video nearly put me off.

Probably the only bit anyone will have trouble with are the bits with the videos, which can seem fast, and do simulate flying down cliffs and similar (you don't feel the drops, it is important to remember that) but my tip for this is if you feel scared just look directly up or down, or to your extreme right or left. If you do that you can see the edge of the projection screen and you can tell easily that you are just facing a screen and not moving. I did this on my first time round at the start and then started gradually forcing myself to watch the screen. By the end of my first ride I was loving it and throwing myself into every movement the screen made. I went on 3 times in total and loved it more each time.

My final tip is to just go totally limp and let the floaty ride take you, it is actually really relaxing, it really is that smooth! If you have been on the Simpsons Ride, Spiderman or even Wild Arctic at SeaWorld, you will easily be able to take Harry Potter as HP is so much more smooth (and fun!) It is not jerky like the other rides mentioned, which is what makes me feel nervous.

Hope this can help people who were doing the same frantic research as me! Enjoy!!!

How fast does the Harry Potter ride go?

At the Wizarding World of Harry Potter section in Universal Studios Island of Adventures in Florida, there are three rides. The flagship ride is called Harry Potter & The Forbidden Journey, and is located inside Hogwarts Castle. It is a simulation ride, combining a moving seat with videos of the movie cast talking to you as you explore the castle, the Forbidden Forest, the Quidditch Pitch and more. There are also physical sets that your seat moves through. This is not a scary or fast ride; it is a simulation ride, ie your chair moves around more or less in one spot and you are shown a video of flying through the air to give the impression of movement. Along the line outside, you will also be able to explore Hogwarts Castle to a certain extent.

The other rides are more traditional rollercoasters. The Flight Of The Hippogriff is a "family-friendly" rollercoaster, but it's not a kiddy ride, it does whip round corners at a fair pace. The good thing about this ride is that, if you're willing to risk getting your camera out, you get some fantastic views of Hogsmeade (sit on the left) and Hogwarts Castle (sit on the right) from higher up, angles which you can't see from the ground.

The final ride is the Dragon Challenge, a leftover from the previous Merlin-themed area of the park which was formerly called Duelling Dragons, and has now been conveniently retooled to fit in with the Harry Potter theme as part of the First Task of the Triwizard Tournament. This is the fastest and scariest ride of the three, and technically, this is actually two rides - the Duelling Dragons motif had two intertwining but different tracks, which have now been renamed after two of the dragons in the Harry Potter series, the Chinese Fireball and the Hungarian Horntail. It's worth going on both, as they are two completely different rides.

My personal tips? Get to the WWHP as soon as you get into the park, and preferably arrive at 9am (or 8am if you're staying in one of the Universal hotels) on the dot. Although when I was there, the queue for the Forbidden Journey was pretty short, I walked past room for hundreds of guests to queue before they even get into the castle (where you at least have the entertainment of the talking portraits or looking at Dumbledore's office). And you can't use the Express Pass on this ride either (you can on the other two), so there is no choice but to get in line. The ride itself is pretty enjoyable, and the acting in the videos (which feature Robbie Coltrane as Hagrid, Michael Gambon as Dumbledore, and Emma, Dan, Rupert and Tom as Hermione, Harry, Ron and Draco) is very good. But if I had stood in line for two or three hours - and that clearly happens, judging by the amount of queue space before you get on - I would have been disappointed. Maybe it's just me, but I like a proper rollercoaster after a long queue :)

And speaking of proper rollercoasters, if the line for the Dragon Challenge is very long too and you only want to do it once, in my opinion the Hungarian Horntail, or blue track, is much better than the Chinese Fireball, or red/orange track. Just saying :)

Is dragon challenge in Harry Potter Universal Orlando scary?

I depends on your tastes. There are a lot of loopdeloops and corkscrews. If you don't like those, you shouldn't ride. Otherwise, go for it!

PS I've ridden millions of times since it opened as the Dueling Dragons.
