- Flight of the Hippogriff (formerly known as the Flight of the Unicorn I believe)
- The Dragon Challenge (formerly known as the Dueling Dragons)
The ride queue moved very quickly, we were maybe in line for 10 minutes. And throughout the queue, you were able to see Hagrid's hut and surrounding area. What would have made this that much more entertaining was if you got to walk through the hut rather than just looking at it. But I understand it is a small area, and I was appreciative of all the pumpkins (my fave!)
The Dragon Challenge was more of a thrill roller coaster. The queue went by very quickly and was focused on the Triwizard Tournament. As you were walking, you saw banners cheering for the students of choice from the particular school that you would cheer for, including Hogwarts, Beauxbatons (which is an all girls school) and Durmstrang (all male.)
Besides those items, there wasn't much to look at. Seemed very much like a dungeon. I was surprised, Universal could have done much more with jazzing up that queue - maybe they will in the future as it will need it.
When you arrived to the actually ride portion, you had to choose the Chinese Fireball or Hungarian Horntail. We choose the shorter line, which happened to be the Chinese Fireball. We opted to wait just a little longer so we could have front row seats of the excitement (there is a separate line to do so.) Both tracks run at the same time as you twist and turn your way through the ride. At one point, it looks like you are going to collide with the other dragon only to do a loop and continue to scream some more. It was exciting, a great roller coaster that hasn't changed from the original form.
Forbidden Journey was just so amazing that it is hard to compare these two - just so different.
Next up - the rest of Hogsmeade!
