Universal Studios and Florida Keys
Just got back from an amazing vacation! I, my friends, went to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios!!! I couldn’t believe the attention to detail in the parks decoration. We got to shop in Hogsmeade, explore Hogwarts, fly a dragon, and train a Hippogriff. I seriously felt weak in the knees at some parts during the day (possibly due to the heat). The Harry Potter and the Forbidden Adventure Ride lets you explore the castle and engage in an amazing ride!
Now onto my rant. For Dragon Challenge, a dueling coaster themed around the Triwizard Tournament, it seemed that Universal was trying to rewrite history! (well…wizarding history anyways) Leading up to the ride are banners supporting three out of the four Triwizard Champions. WHERE ARE THE CEDRIC DIGGORY SIGNS!?!? Check out this link for a walkthrough <http://buzzmytime.com/dragon-challenge-roller-coaster-queue-at-the-wizarding-world-of-harry-potter>. Maybe I am biased because of my love for Cedric, but I say shame on you Universal Studios.
Besides that the park was great! The rest of our trip consisted of being beach bums, hanging out in Key West, and having an amazing Fourth of July on a sandbar. Met some great folks, drank some good beer, and soaked up some delicious sunshine!
