Harry Potter Flight of Hippogriff
In the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, the Flight of the Hippogriff sends its riders into the Forbidden Forest and past Hagrid’s Hut. You will see the magical creature called Buckbeak in person. The Flight of the Hippogriff could be said to be an outdoor child’s roller coaster, but it provides a surprisingly exhilarating ride even for those who are older. Anyone from three years old on up to 55 years old will see picture-perfect views of Hogsmeade Village and Hogwarts Castle.
In terms of the fear factor, it ranks at around two out of five, so this might not be the best choice for someone who wants a scare, but anyone who has enjoyed the movies or books will love delving deeper into the lore because you will be placed right into the theme. With wait times, Harry Potter Flight of the Hippogriff sees wait times that are not normally over 45 minutes. It is a rare occurrence.
What do you want to know before you take on the Harry Potter Flight of the Hippogriff ride? Visit this roller coaster twice: Once during the day and once at night because the Forbidden Forest sparkles with a new enchantment and mystery each time. It feels like an entirely new ride during the night ride and the day ride.
Before Harry Potter came to Universal Studios in Hollywood, California, this ride was referred to as the Flying Unicorn. The Wizarding World story brought new life to this roller coaster because the owners of the park shuttered the Flying Unicorn for a few years. You are not jerked around much on this ride, so the main reason to choose it is it provides theme park thrill seekers with a live experience of Hagrid’s Hut and Buckbeak. Harry Potter Flight of the Hippogriff becomes a great ride for the entire family or a group of wild Harry Potter fans.
