If you have little kids in tow on your trip to The Wizarding world of Harry Potter at Universal Studios, and they’re Harry Potter fans, they’ll probably be disappointed that they can’t ride Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey.
Riders for that attraction have to be at least 48 inches tall. If, however, your little wizards are at least 36 inches tall, they can enjoy the Flight of the Hippogriff ride roller coaster.
What’s a hippogriff? A hippogriff is a mythological creature that has the head of an eagle and the body of a horse. Here’s the back story to the ride: Hagrid, the Care of Magical Creatures teacher, teaches young wizards-in-training to fly a Hippogriff.
