Paying a visit to Poseidon

When they expand The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, I wonder what will happen to this BEAUTIFUL temple? I hope TPTB discover a way to repurpose it in some way. Would be a shame for it to be demoished, even to make way for Diagon Alley.

Wizarding World of Harry Potter is over capacity

They are handing out-window-of-time tickets just to get into that part of the park, never mind on the rides. we’re going to get some lunch.

The “Lost Continent” section of Universal’s Islands of Adventure theme park has taken a hit to make way for the new “Wizarding World of Harry Potter” section. Casualties include:

  • The Flying Unicorn, a kiddie roller coaster, which has now been re-themed as Flight of the Hippogriff
  • The Enchanted Oak, a counter service restaurant that had the best ribs I’ve ever tasted on this entire planet, seems to have morphed into The Three Broomsticks – still counter service but with a decidedly English countryside twist to the menu
  • “Fire and Ice”, the feet-dangling-Erin-terrorizing double roller coaster, as been re-themed to reflect the Dragon Challenge in the Triwizard Tournament, an event around which Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was centered.

Still standing is the “Poseidon” themed section of the Lost Continent, including the award-winning Mythos restaurant. Inexplicably, I have always managed to miss dining at Mythos; one thing or another has prevented me from joining any of my friends and family there, thus far. So, if there is such a thing as a theme park “bucket list”, this would be on mine – lunch at Mythos. I have the feeling I’d better get to it sooner rather than later, before what remains of the Lost Continent becomes truly lost!

Exited the Wizarding World of Harry Potter – for today

I think they’ve made an error of scale in there. I know small and cozy is what merry olde English towns are like but it’s too small in there for the size of the crowd. You can’t even shop without standing in a line first. I didn’t even try to get near the castle. I’ll do that with the gang on Sunday.
