USA 2012: Universal Studios Day 2Sunday, September 16, 2012
Here’s what went down during our visit to the Universal Studios Islands of Adventure. It was the best day of my life (for that week HAHA). ☺
I have arrived at Hogwartsss!!
Entering Hogsmeade. "Please respect the spell limits.“
There’s still snow on the roofs even if it’s already summer. Magic. Hihi. ☺
Look at the sea of people. To get inside the castle (for the Forbidden Journey ride), we had to wait for TWO HOURS. Crazy.
Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey. I wasn’t able to take pictures of the insides of the castle because bags must be left in the lockers located at the entrance. Sad.
My first roller coaster ride! It wasn’t so bad after all.
There’s no beer in Butterbeer! Maybe that’s why it’s sooo delicious. ☺
There’s also a long line just to get into Ollivanders. Good thing I already bought my wand at the Universal Studios souvenir shop during our first day of visit.
Oh hello there, little fellow! ☺
Flight of the Hippogriff
The back of the castle
Marvel Superhero Island. This was actually our last stop but we also went to other "islands” before this, like Toon Lagoon and Jurassic Park. By the sound of their names, you already have a clue that they consist of water rides, which means no photos for me.
Ah! How do I even begin to explain how AMAZING this ride really is? It was supposed to be, I’m sure of it since I’ve seen 1/3 of it. Everything shut down almost midway through the ride and we got stuck inside a “car”. They tried to fix the problem but after 20 mins., the staff came to help us get out of the ride. Bummer. It seemed like a great one. I also forgot to mention above that we experienced sort of the same thing in one of the water rides, except the part where we actually got in the ride. After 1 hour of falling in line for the said ride, an accident happened which led to its temporary shut down. What a day.
