So.... today I went to Islands of Adventure to finally check out the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
I'll give my main review in a different post because....
I GOT STUCK ON HARRY POTTER AND THE FORBIDDEN JOURNEY!
Just as the ride started... it stopped. My "bench" was stuck looking at a big blank screen for awhile, then the lights came on! I immediately got excited and then even moreso when the Kuka arms started to move a bit and... well, I whipped out my iPhone and I'll let the photos say the rest (and sorry for the crappy quality since they were taken with my phone):
After the dragon, we went through the rest of the right with the lights on, but I couldn't get my phone back out fast enough to snap more photos. The Kuka arms were all in the "default" position I guess when this stuff happens, but youcould see how close you really get to everything. I could have easily kicked my foot out and just barely hit the bottom of one dementor as I was on and end seat.
They gave everyone front of the line passes, but I never used mine as I ended up just trying the single rider line later in the day and had success. So I'll keep my pass thingy as a souvenir.
I NEVER get stuck on rides like that, so it was a HUGE thrill for me.
