Would have been fun to have you there also. I was in an out in like an hour and 20 min Also this was the first time one of the security guy gave me a hard time at the hub with my tripod. Initially he said they were banned but I talked my way thru, I knew he was just trying to play hardball but played it cool.Great shots Mike! Wish I could of made it out!
That's true, it's definitely all subjective. I just think that without the Harry Potter references (which are essentially useless to those of us who aren't fans) it gets a little repetitive. Thats not to say it isn't amazing though! Still a very cool, immersive area.Orlandoguy, not to knock your opinion, but I think a lot of people think a generic London area is more exciting because many people don't travel to cities often. I've been to NYC once - that's the biggest city I've ever been in. I'd like to live there someday and while I think it'll get boring, I think tourists will always find enjoyment. That said, I have to agree with your points on the merchandise, although I will say it was fun to look at it and be like "Wait, they actually made this?". Adds to the immersion factor but probably isn't great for revenue. For the most part, I feel your review is spot on and I'm glad you enjoyed your first visit!
Saw this a bit ago on twitter. Excellent pic of excellent theming. The worn stone steps kill me. Reminds me of the turret stairs in the tower of London.
Great shot! I never notice that existed before, Universal packed this land to the brim with details.
Thanks guys. I could have spend half the day in there taking photos in Knockturn aloneHas that wanted poster always been there? I could spend a lot of time looking in the windows of that tattoo shop.
Great photo as always Hockeyman! Love the shots you are able to get in such poor light conditions!
This, the doorknob is easily my favorite interactive wand spot.There's so much to see and experience in Knockturn alley that it could really be considered a walk through "attraction". Heck, we spent a lot of time just listening to the shrunken heads dialogue and songs. Some of the very best interactive magic wand effects are in Knockturn also.
