No more worrying about missing the best stuff because you're stuck in lines all day. Just remember, it doesn't cover every ride in the park, but it nails the big ones.

Plus, you get a guaranteed time slot to enter the Wizarding World of Harry Potter™. No more stress about missing out on Butterbeer or wand shopping.

About the rides

The Flying Dinosaur is a face-down coaster that'll have you soaring for over 1,000 meters. It's intense, with 360-degree turns that'll make you feel like a real Pteranodon.

Hollywood Dream - The Ride - Backrop is a backwards coaster. You'll climb 43 meters facing the sky, then plunge into twists you can't see coming. It's a 3-minute adrenaline rush that's perfect for those who love surprises.

Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey™ is a 5-minute magical adventure. It uses robotic tech and 4K visuals to make you feel like you're really flying through Hogwarts. You'll dodge dragons and duel with Dementors.

Flight of the Hippogriff™ is more chill. It's a family-friendly coaster that loops around magical creature habitats. Great for kids or if you want a breather between the bigger thrills.
