You gotta hand it to Universal, they know how to
sucker you in create a whole experience. Of course, in order to do that you need a pass to both of their parks–but it is TOTALLY worth it (if you’re a Harry Potter fan–and by fan I mean borderline obsessed…and by borderline, I just mean obsessed) to get on the Hogwarts Express at Platform 9¾ and ride to Hogsmeade & Hogwarts.
Like Gringott’s, Hogswarts is a ride that first winds you through the castle offering you a better look inside the most famous wizarding school in the world–just watch out for the staircases, they like to move!
It was tempting to go through again, but we were burning daylight and still had to get to Hogsmeade!
