Fun, cute ride. Not as developed as the rest of Harry Potter and could probably be placed in any part of the park.

Pros:

Has great views of Hogwarts castle from the waiting line. Great for young kids. Can fit almost anyone. Fast ride, so typically short wait time.

Cons:

Not very interactive or involved queue. Has very little Harry Potter reference besides the ride seating looking like a Hippogriff.

Look it's nothing special as far as ride systems go, but as someone who is too afraid of motion sickness to ride Forbidden Journey, it does the job. The Buckbeak animatronic is fantastic!

Pros:

Good for kids

Cons:

Very short, ride vehicles are small

This is a fun little kiddy coaster. It has one of the best views of the castle and it's got the best twist and truns. For a more thrilling ride 4 rows back is the mlst exciting. We rode it like 6 times in a row with no wait.

Pros:

fun and great for kids

Cons:

it's short

Loved this ride as a child when it was a unicorn ride and being Harry Potter makes it even better! Fantastic view of Hagrid's hut in line, a great view of Hogwarts from the ride, and Buckbeak. Plus love anything at Universal that is an actual physical ride and not just looking at screens. A great kid ride but if you love HP don't miss it!

Pros:

Great views of Hogsmede, roller coaster, fun for the whole family

Cons:

short, not as thrilling as the other HP attractions

For a kiddie coaster, this is a surprisingly thrilling ride. Add the Harry Potter elements, and it's a real winner! It was my young daughter's favorite ride in both parks.

Pros:

good coaster, Buckbeak

Cons:

line can get long quick

Great starter roller coaster. It's not too crazy that it would scare first time roller coaster riders, and the theme is cute. Also getting to see Buckbeak, which you can only see if you actually ride the ride. The ride vehicles are meant for the younger crowd as well.

Pros:

Easy going roller coaster Buckbeak!

Cons:

Not meant for the older crowd Uncomfortable ride vehicles for anyone over 5 foot tall
