A must-do when visiting Orlando. Easily one of the best dark rides I have been on

Review Criteria

Great

Enjoyment

A great dark ride that brings the quintessential Wizarding World experience to life.
Good

Effectiveness

High

Intensity

The KUKA robotic arms do not provide you with any earthly way of knowing which way you'll be going. You'll be flung from scene to scene as you race around Hogwarts
Good

Rider Comfort

Great

Pacing

Good

Theming/Storyline

The theming itself is superb, but Forbidden Journey is only let down by a very weak story. It's hard to follow at times as the scenes change so quickly
Great

Upkeep/Presentation

Great

Queue/Efficiency

A continuous loading system reminiscent of the Omnimovers make this attractions awfully quick to load.
Great

Special Effects

While the transitions from screen to set could be handled more gracefully, the physical effects throughout the ride are phenomenal.
