Flight of the Hippogriff Review

We're here at Universal Studios Japan where's we'll be revewing their Roller Skater. Flight of the Hippogriff. Now, I like these rides. And this is the Big Model. So I like it even more. Anyways, lets get moving. We pull down the lap bar, and we're off. We go around a turn, climb the lifthill, and go down the curved first drop. Wee!! We've got some speed now. We go around a curve and slightly turn up before dipping back down towards the ground. We rise up, go through a turnaround, and dip back down. We rise up, go through another helix back down towards the ground. We roll through another turn and into the brake run. With these large Roller Skaters, these are the coasters where I start to think to myself, "Is this a kiddy coaster?". Seriously, this is the area where the line starts to get fuzzy. But hey, I enjoy these rides and wouldn't mind taking another spin. Too bad it always generates a really long line due to it being in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Well, at least riding it isn't embarassing as people just assume you're a Potterhead.
