    I will never forget Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey @ Universal Studios in CA
    The ride system is spectacular! Very innovative and never seen before.
    Guests are immersed in the story of the movies from the waiting line and through all the ride. Thrills are so aligned to the original story you saw in the movies and the 3D screen experience makes you feel you are part of it.

    The Harry Potter ride at Universal. The line goes through Hogwarts and so you're never in the same place for more than a few minutes and the ride itself had so many different factors that made it great.

    At 6 flags I went with my best friend Amy for my 13th birthday. And I went on this ride called The Texas Giant. We went on a steep tall hill then we went down really fast and twisted and turned. Why I remember that is because it was so thrilling and fun that in one of the parts it looked like I was gonna hit my head on the planks luckily I didn't.
