Harry Potter and the Wizarding Worlds at Universal Studios, 2017 Report
(Tuesday's visit to Diagon Alley)
On Tuesday morning I was up.
The hotel offered a free breakfast with their stay. I headed down to grab a bite to eat with Dad. Following this I drove over to Universal Studios
After traveling along their seemingly endless horizontal escalators, I finally arrived at the security area.
After going through the
security check, I headed to Universal's CityWalk, (their area of stores and restaurants located just outside the theme parks).
I made my way to the ticket booth,
presented my ticket-voucher and headed over to Universal Studios.
(I wanted to start at Diagon Alley,
which is located in Universal Studios).
(First, a slight detour) Before arriving at Diagon Alley I decided to visit several Non-Harry-Potter rides first. So, I ended up venturing on Despicable Me Minion Mayhem,
Transformers: The Ride 3D along with Terminator 2 3-D. All were enjoyable.
After leaving the Terminator ride I headed over to Diagon Alley.
(Dre Head and the Knight Bus) Leading up to Diagon Alley was an innocent enough looking path. The scene was a tranquil one, with a large, old-English building perched out front.
However, the ostentatiously
looking, purple triple decker bus told you that things might not be quite as they seemed.
When spying a shrunken, voodoo
head in the front - (Dre Head) - you knew that something was amiss.
Walking through a tunnel located
at the center of the building tranports you into the magical Diagon Alley.
