Hogwarts Castle - Review
Harry Potter has been a major part of every millennial's life. The magic, the friendship and the incredible wizarding world has captivated the entire generation’s imagination like nothing has ever before. Every Potter-maniac fantasizes about what it would be like to experience the magical universe of the Hogwarts castle. Well, this is your chance to do it! Universal Studios has established a theme park which is home to the Hogwarts Castle, and constructed to look exactly like the one in the movies. The main attraction here is “Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey”, which takes you through the entire castle and into Harry Potter’s world. You can wander in the Hogsmeade village, which stays true to the novels, and has a number of shacks and shops designed exactly like described in the books, including Dervish and Banges, Honeydukes, Ollivanders and Zonko's Joke Shop. Head to Hogwarts Castle for a nostalgic trip down the memory lane and an experience which will give you memories worth a lifetime.

Hogwarts Castle, Orlando Reviews
Hogwarts is just awesome! You actually feel like you are in a Harry Potter movie. It's that realistic. The castle is at the end of the Hogsmeade village so it sits high atop the hill overlooking everything below. You will be stunned once you see it. It's even cool at night since it's all lit up. Put Hogwarts on your list if you are planning on visiting Orlando. Universal is simply amazing!
Nice to see from the outside and inside but it's very disappointing that its a ride and you have to wait in a very long line to ride! Hogwarts castle should have been a separate place than the ride itself. You only get to see the inside if you will ride, you can always chicken out and exit but you still have to go through that very long line (over an hour of wait time). Moving staircase doesn't exist and you don't get to see the secret rooms or even the dining area as all of those do not exist! Disappointed!!
One of the best rides in islands of adventure. While waiting in line I actually felt like I was at Hogwarts. Didn't have to wait in line at all, TWICE! You have to walk a long way in order to get the ride, but it is worth it. Only downside were that the screens were a little blurry, but it's still enjoyable. Dont for her to get some butterbeer and a Turkey leg beforehand so you'll enjoy the wait time.
It is marvellous. Walk around Hogsmeade, visit the ride inside the castle, try the butter bear, take million of pics... Every Harry Potter fan will go crazy here.
Worth the trip. I enjoy the lighting and fire work outside the castle. It runs every 15 minute
