About the rides

The Flying Dinosaur: The world's longest flying coaster. Ride face-down like a pterodactyl, starting with a 37-meter drop followed by twists and turns.

Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey™: A robotic arm moves you around massive screens, creating the illusion of flying through Hogwarts. Encounter magical creatures and face Dementors.

Flight of the Hippogriff™: Another Harry Potter ride. It's a smaller coaster that goes past Hagrid's place and around some pumpkins. Good for kids or if you're not into big coasters.

Mario Kart: A must for Nintendo fans. Wear 3D goggles to feel like you're in the game, throwing shells at other racers.

Hollywood Dream: A coaster where you choose your own music. Also available in a backward-riding version.

My Hero Academia: A 4D show with moving seats and water effects that immerses you in the action.
