It's paced way too fast and way too much stuff is going on. The 2nd day I rode it the effects on the dragoin weren't working and since it doesn't move or anything it looked really bad just sitting there with the sprinklers sticking out of its mouth. Spider-man is a way better ride.
The crowd control is pretty bad too but at least they are working on it. The first time I went we had to get in a line that went though Jurassic park to get a pink ticket, then get in another line and had our pink ticket to somebody to get in the area. The 2nd time on a week or so later we were given a receipt with a time to come back later, like a fastpass or something.
The line for the ride also needs to be worked on. The line extends way out the entrance because of people having to put stuff in fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo. People can just go in the gift shop at the exit (which I admit to doing) and skip the whole first half of the line. There is hardly any wait for the single rider line though
Really? I am sort of surprised to hear this...I'm not even a Harry Potter fan at ALL and I thought the ride was absolutely amazing. I though every single scene was very nicely done and the story was really good for an amusement ride. For how quickly it moves the ride is pretty long as there is a TON of stuff that goes on. Admittingly I did notice new things every time I rode, but that just goes to show how much there really is.
Also, I'm curious when you visited. I went on a Sunday (July 11th) and anyone could walk into The Wizarding World at any time all day. I do agree that the fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo are extremely cramped and it is really dark in there but at the same time I like them...feels like you are down in a castle.
