Flight of the Hippogriff

In the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal in Orlando, Florida...over by Hagrid's Hut...





...is a roller coaster ride for a whole family, called The Flight of the Hippogriff.





Before you begin the ride, Hagrid instructs the muggles that they must bow to the Hippogriff.


The front of the roller coaster train is the figure of a Hippogriff.










The ride is fast and furious...and over quickly.









So my boys just kept riding it again and again until they had their fill.





They LOVED it.






And they didn't throw up butterbeer.  hehe


We visited The Wizarding World of Harry Potter the same week it opened, so it was super croweded, 
but still a LOT of fun.

Okay, that takes courage! Incredible courage... to visit a new exhibit just as it opens... aaarggghhhh!... my sister and her family did the same thing... and, of course, it included a trip to the med center... I prefer the vicarious living through the great tales awaiting smaller crowds and cooler days... your boys must have been tickled pink... what fun... you're a good mommy... thanks for sharing...

Gosh, maybe we could carpool next time! We missed opening day by 4 days! We were coming home from our cruise, and if it had been open we would have stopped!
