Everyone is pretty much experiencing life through their devices as the coronavirus outbreak persists. If you had to cancel a Universal Studios trip and were particularly ecstatic about experiencing the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, you can do more than daydream about it: In the meantime, you can virtually go on a ride through Hogwarts castle from the comfort of your couch.
Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey is the must-experience ride inside of Hogwarts castle at Universal Studios. A video from UndercoverTourist.com takes you through the entire experience–even waiting in line, which is arguably one of the best parts. In line, you get to check out the halls of Hogwarts where you can listen to paintings talk and visit Dumbledore in his office. Before hopping on the ride, you also get to wander through the Defense Against the Dark Arts classroom, the Room of Requirement, and the herbology classroom.
Once you’re strapped in, you take a magical broomstick ride around Hogwarts as you’re met with fire-breathing dragons, friendly faces (Ron, Hermione, and Hagrid, of course), and spiders in the Forbidden Forest. You finish the ride with a warm praise from Dumbledore and students in the Great Hall.
As Dumbledore once said: “Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.” This virtual ride is the light. It's a true pick-me-up that all Harry Potter lovers deserve right now.
