Updated: Ranking the TOP 6 HP Must Do’s
Taken from the stand point of the movies, not the books.
These are the things that if you visit without doing then you really missed out truly experiencing the wizarding world.
To explain that statement a bit further, will have some Honorable Mentions, but you’ll see the difference, if you miss out on one of the HM’s you’ll still have a fulfilling HP experience if you do the top 6 items on this list. But you do not want to missing doing any of the top 6 items on this countdown.
Ride Escape from Gringotts
- not just for the ride but to go through the queue
- animatronics
- Voldemort, the big baddie
- very queue attraction with the blend of roller coaster thrills and 3D story telling
Magical wand spots
- Hey magic is what it’s all about, what is HP without magic so you have to do the interactive wand spots
- cover where you can buy wands and cost
- must do spot is wingardianlevosa
- also the secret wand spots
Ride Hogwarts Express
- note two park admission is required
- different scenes going each direction
- but for sure don’t miss London to Hogwarts because of platform 9 ¾
- also the hagrid motorbike scene is apropos
- and in hallway scenes with harry, Ron and Hermione are cool
Have a butterbeer (three kinds)
- regular (soda)
- frozen
- hot is seasonal (but why not year round like coffee)
Visit Hogwarts and go on Forbidden Journey (not just for the ride but to go through the queue)
- walking through the queue is like walking through Hogwarts castle so just walking in the line is just as important as going on the actual ride.
- in fact, I kind of thing walking through the queue is more important than the ride
- sorting hat, talking pictures, etc.
Before we get to #1 let’s talk about the HM’s: Flight of Hippogriff - Castle Show - Eat at HP Restaurant - Chocolate Frog/Liquid Luck - Mail a Letter From Owl’s post
Ride Hagrids Motorbike
The most fun roller coaster in Orlando
You’re on hagrids motorbike
Animatronics, blast ended skrut is just in the books not the movies

    Excellent review. Since I'm a little old for Gringotts I'd put in its place the wonderful stage shows in both Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley.

    The Hogwarts Express train is 'just ok' to do Once, Park-to-Park tickets only. Now we just get one park day tickets. I don't feel that "I Have To Do It Again". Not worth extra money just to ride a just ok train ride. It's nice to say I rode it once, but I don't Need to ride it again. Maybe my daughter will make me get Park-to-Park tickets to ride it because she is getting into Harry Potter lately. We are taking her to IOA for her Birthday this year in June. She's turing 10 and now her Admission Ticket is an Adult Price Ticket. (disney does this too, but not legoland) Ohh booyy. Thanks for the great videos as always.

    Did you ever think of the word play? Diagon Alley: Diagonally. Nocturn Alley: Nocturnally. Both very apt terms applied to both locations. I'm not a big Potter fan. But, Potter world has made me a fan. It's the reason we love Universal. We, being my wife (a big fan) and myself. Definitely, get the two park ticket. All part of the fun. -JB

    I was there 3 days trying to go on the hagrid ride. It was either broken down or had queues of 3 hours. Total waste of time. Dont waste your time Shame you never mentioned it breaks down regularly. Have a look on Google about it always breaking down and closing

    Hey Rick, I was the weirdo who stopped in the street and stare-smiled creepily before saying hello. Lol It was exciting to run into you. Too bad Nikki wasn't along. Also, side note, I was telling the ppl in our boat on JP that you recommended rows 3 & 4 to not get soaked. In row 4 we were good but row 3 was a little upset with you as they squelched off the ride . Lol

  60. Mike Smith

    Mike SmithPřed měsícem

    They're 2 spots where lord Voldemort can be found. Gringotts is one and the second is the train ride back to Diagon alley. You can catch a quick glimpse of him and the lightening strikes and he turns to a tree. Just a fyi

  61. Rebecca Wood

    Rebecca WoodPřed 28 dny

    Mike Smith oh really? I'll check that out. Thank you!!!

  62. Bryan Madonna

    Bryan MadonnaPřed měsícem

    Are you sure that's Voldemort? I have watched that scene many times and have often wondered what wizard he is supposed to be. I have my doubts that it's Voldemort, primarily because the profile is overall too bulky.

    I saw on someone else’s CSgos Chanel that they are now offering sauces with the beignets. If you use the lanyard it’s included with it but if your paying cash you have to pay extra for it.

    ShingotinkPřed měsícem

    I did not really care for Gringotts the first time I rode it, but it has grown on me. I did not ride Forbidden Journey until a year later and enjoy it much more. I have only rode Hagrid's once so far and thoroughly enjoyed it. So far Forbidden Journey is still my favorite ride at Universal at least until I give Hagrid's at least another ride. I'll be back the first week of March and will definitely be hitting all 3 Harry Potter rides then.

    Great list, guys. Hagrid's MB is truly the most fun-est ride at Universal/IOA. We'll be heading over in a few weeks with family and we can't wait for them to experience it. Like Nicki we were upset when Dueling Dragons was removed but we're happy with it's replacement.
