Dragons of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios in Orlando, FL

maxresdefault

Vacation Day 3 brings us to Universal Orlando Resort in Florida, so it’s the perfect day to feature the dragons in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter!  First up is the escaped dragon perched atop the Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts ride.

The featured image above comes from a great video called Diagon Alley Gringotts Dragon Breathes Fire Day into Night + Fireworks, Wizarding World Harry Potter posted to YouTube by MouseSteps/JWL Media:

I can’t wait to see this in person!  The dragon is supposed to breathe fire every fifteen minutes, but even though this will be our third time to the Wizarding World, and the second since the newer Diagon Alley expansion opened with the Gringotts ride and dragon, we’ve actually never seen it.  The last time we were here, we always missed seeing the fire somehow!

Next up, we have the pair of dueling rollercoasters called Dragon Challenge.  This awesome public domain image of the entrance is from Wikipedia, by Killioughtta:

If you’re up for another first-person POV video, here is a great one of both sides of this roller coaster created by Attractions Magazine:

I imagine I’ll be exhausted after spending a whole day in the parks, but tomorrow is GeekyCon!  I’m super excited!  Since tomorrow is the last Friday of the month, I’ve already scheduled my Random Writing to post tomorrow so I can concentrate on all the cool panels and special guests, and I hope you enjoy it!  Take care everyone and stay creative!
