An early arrival meant we were through the gate and cranking through rides before the full wave of crowds hit.
Straight to Harry Potter world and on the extreme Forbidden Journey ride (I misread which ride we were entering, thought this was the “family friendly” Harry Potter ride). Hippogriff rollercoaster, Simpsons ride, Studio Tour,Jurassic Park, transformers, and Mummy (Egyptian not parental) all before lunch.
The afternoon wasn’t quite as extreme but was great fun – lunch at the Harry Potter Three Broomsticks restaurant, including the much sought after Butter Beer 🍻.
Special Effects, Water World and Animal shows in the afternoon as well as more time looking around Harry Potter world. Plus a few photos with some likely characters!
