“The most overhyped place I’ve ever been to might be… Harry Potter World at Universal Studios.”

The most overhyped place I’ve ever been to might be the, like, Harry Potter World at Universal Studios. It’s not that it wasn’t good or anything. It’s just, you know. I mean, I was there in summer and so it was hot and stuff but like, you don’t really feel like – or you didn’t, I mean I didn’t back then. This was like gosh, this was before I had kids so it was like between 10 and 15 years ago. But you know, I didn’t really feel like I was in Hogsmeade, and I didn’t really feel like I was in Ollivander’s, or whatever. The fake snow did not cool me down, you know? And we had to stand in line forever for like the main ride. We’re – most of the line is like in Hogwarts or whatever. So it’s not terrible, but you’re still just standing there, and then the ride made me so sick. Like, it was one of those things where it’s like four people in a – you know, strapped in a whatever. You can’t really see what the ride looks like because it’s all dark but you’re hanging, and then moving all around, so it’s like there’s some sort of screen that makes you feel like you’re supposed to be flying on a broomstick or whatever. And so you have no point of reference. It’s dark except for the lit up screen. You’re being moved all around. And again not being able to see like the ground or the wall or the ceiling or anything. That was just way too much for my motion sickness. And so like about five seconds into the ride, I had to close my eyes because it was like, “Okay, if I do not close my eyes, I will throw up,” and even then I was still sick when we got off, like I don’t think I could ride anything else for the rest of the day. I was there with a friend, and we were there for a couple days luckily, but I was just like, “And that’s it for me.” So it was like, a little disappointing and I think the whole thing was a bit overhyped because if you were there by yourself, and it was magical or something, but there’s crowds, it’s hot, you’re sweaty. I’m motion sickness – or motion sick. So, yeah, wasn’t the best.
