We had a look in all the shops, they were all set up like shops in Hogsmeade and were really cool, they even had Ollivander's wand shop where 'the wand chooses you', so there was a really long line of people waiting to get into the shop so that they could get a wand perfect for them. Tom also had a better look at the shops while I went in a dragon challenge, where you 'need the courage of a triwizard tournament champion as you climb aboard 1 of 2 ferocious dragons that turn, twist, loop and nearly collide in a high speed intertwining rollercoaster chase across the sky'
We then went and had lunch at the 3 broomsticks where we tried butterbeer (very yummy). After lunch we got in line for a long wait before the forbidden journey, where you 'make your way through the classrooms and corridors of hogwarts and then soar above the grounds of hogwarts' (on a broomstick, following harry and his friends) and have deatheaters jump out at you and all kinds of creepy stuff happen. BEST RIDE EVER. So much fun!!! Even Tom loved it.
We did some other stuff at the island of adventure park too...but harry potter was by far the most exciting. Oh but one of the other rides we went on got us REALLY WET. it was a ride on a barge with pop-eye and yeah we got soaked. but it was FUN.
There was also a Dr Seuss land which was quite exciting to see, but the rides were all kiddy rides.
