Peep the review thread. I haven’t seen any negative review at all. On here, on social media, by anyone.It seems like the reviews are universally fantastic for this ride. After waiting so long to ride it, it's possible some people will inflate the review to justify the personal cost of waiting for 3,4,7, or 9 hours.
Is it really that good? Basically sounds like it's the best ride in either park based on early reviews?
Can someone who rode it chime in from that perspective? Is the early press legit?
Or a little over exuberant?
Asking because I hope it's legit.
I'm the furthest from a Potterhead, but that doesn't affect my enjoyment of the rides. Sure, it'd be nice to know the backstories, or who some of the characters are, but that doesn't hinder the enjoyment. I'd say it's even easier with Hagrid's, because they're not directly referencing any place we've seen in the films, rather a fabrication specifically for the park itself. It being self-contained kind of helps it for the GP.I have to ask, but for those who got the chance to experience this ride, is there any bias towards being a huge Potter fan? Would this ride have changed your mind if you weren't a Potterhead? I don't mean this with any negative connotations. I don't doubt that this ride is a winner when operating smoothly. I'm just curious if some people are giving leeway to its faulty opening and extreme wait times because of their loyalty to Potter. I'm just trying to get an honest assessment of the ride despite the IP involved.
Awesome. We liked the first four movies and books, lost interest after that but know enough to understand most of the two worlds ok. Glad to hear the ride itself, not being a Potterhead, seems to be accounting for te positive reviews.I'm the furthest from a Potterhead, but that doesn't affect my enjoyment of the rides.

I will neither confirm nor deny doing something similar myselfmy kids have been known to troll the crowds by referring to dumbledore as Gandalf and intentionally mispronouncing hermoine's name as her-moyn, then enjoying everyone jumping into action to educate them.
I suggest getting in line at 9 at park open. Get on around noon-ish. 3 hour wait. I suggest getting on as soon as possible before breakdowns or bad weather.So im planning to go and ride it again next week friday. What timeframe would u suggest to go and stand in line untill its opens without having to wait more then +- 180 mins
Just read some reviews from when Gringotts was opened and...you and I are reading a very different thread. Doesn't necessarily mean the glowing reviews for this won't sour with time, though.If anyone thinks that new Potter attractions get preferential reviews due to Potter fandom should have been reading these forums when the Gringotts review thread was alive. There were a slew of middlin to bad reviews, that probably outnumbered the good reviews. That's the main reason I'm convinced Hagrid's love is the real thing. It has the same breakdown problems and long lines as Gringotts, but it's getting universal acclaim nonetheless. That tells me a lot. I've always thought it would be a great ride and now I'm convinced it is. Can't wait to ride it in Nov....and yes, now i'm more psyched for this than an entire GESWL without RotR yet. I think I'll definitely do the night ride first.
