The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is without a doubt the most congested area in all of Universal. It doesn't matter if you're visiting Hogsmeade or Diagon Alley; you're going to feel like somehow you were magically transfixed into a sardine.

That being said, there is a bevy of attractions that fascinate between both parks, one of which is the transport that carries you in between the two. It's no wonder that so many people are stopping to take a look at the majestic fit-to-scale wizarding world that J.K. Rowling so cleverly brought to the forefront of pop culture society. But with limited time and patience to indulge in these attractions, which ones should you go for? Here are five Wizarding World of Harry Potter attractions that are actually worth waiting in line for—and five that you can skip.

10 Worth It: Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey

Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey is the staple ride in Hogsmeade, and it's located in Universal's Islands of Adventure. With it came eye-opening technological advancements that theme park guests had never seen before. These state-of-the-art inductions only serve as half the reason this ride is worth waiting for. Once you're inside Hogwart's gates, you won't feel bored for a second. The entire queue is an immersive experience, bringing you through familiar rooms such as the Defense Against the Dark Arts classroom and Dumbledore's office. The ride itself is full of twists and turns, 3D characters, and a 4D experience that is larger than life. 

9 Skip It: Flight of the Hippogriff

Granted, Flight of the Hippogriff is labeled as a children's roller coaster, which is why most adults aren't too fond of this one. However, even the bigger rides are kid-friendly, so, if your family is looking to make the most out of your Harry Potter journey, this ride can be skipped. You'll have bigger thrills and more interesting views on Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey or the Hogwarts Express.

8 Worth It: Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts

Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts is the other pivotal ride, this time located inside Diagon Alley at Universal Studios. You'll be able to spot it right away since there is an actual fire-breathing Ukrainian Ironbelly perched atop Gringott's Bank. Once inside, you'll be blown away by the bank's sparkling attention-to-detail. It's almost exactly how you'll remember it from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. The ride's story, however, reflects Harry, Ron, and Hermione's harrowing escape as Bellatrix and Voldemort himself try to disarm the trio and their brave guests after infiltrating one of their vaults.

This high-speed ride takes passengers in a cart through Gringott's ominous underground system for a roller-coaster-like thrill.

7 Skip It: Ollivander’s Wand Shop

Ollivander’s Wand Shop is fun to visit once the crowd thins out, but as far as the interactive experience goes, this one can be skipped. The show runs every so often, but only one person—always a child—is picked from the crowd. During this "ceremony" the wand chooses the wizard, and the selected participant is able to go home with their own wand. It's fun if you're chosen by Ollivander to take part, but based on the likely chance that you aren't, this is an easy attraction to miss.

6 Worth It: Hogwarts Express

The Hogwarts Express leaves from two different stations: Hogsmeade and King's Cross—yes, there are two trains in this universe; gasp! The queue is a relatively dull process despite the fun nods to the films that are scattered throughout the typically long line. However, once you're near the station, you'll be able to magically cross through the wall between Platforms 9 and 10 and enter the cloaked Platform 9 3/4.

Each train ride takes you through various places known in the wizarding world from Malfoy Manor to the Burrow. The train itself feels like a bonafide ride and you might believe for a second that you're really going to Hogwarts.

5 Skip It: Frog Choir

The Frog Choir is an interesting show to listen to in passing, but not really worth stopping to hear in full. The Frog Choir enlists the vocal styles of Hogwarts students and their accompanying frogs as they sing acapella notes. The concert takes place on the corner stage in Hogsmeade near Hogwarts Castle. The students play the part of their characters and their respective houses nicely, and it's pretty cool that the frogs can sing, but it's not really worth stopping by if you're in a rush.

4 Worth It: Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure

If anything speaks to this ride's anticipation, the ten-hour wait on its opening day really gives this ride high standards. Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure opened up in 2019, taking place of the Dueling Dragons double roller-coaster which shut down a few years ago. The ride is a ramped up version of Flight of the Hippogriff, giving thrill seeks their daily dose of adrenaline. The ride features magical creatures, Hagrid's hut, and Hagrid himself as passengers sit on either a motorcycle or its passenger cart.

3 Skip It: Triwizard Spirit Rally

Another show held in Hogsmeade is the Triwizard Spirit Rally. The show brings out the girls of Beauxbatons and boys of Durmstrang in a colorful performance that is on par from what audiences remember from the films. The choreography can be enticing to watch, especially in regard to the Durmstrang stunt performances. However, like the Frog Choir, this one can be skipped in favor of the more proverbial attractions.

2 Worth It: The Interactive Wand Exhibits

The Interactive Wand Exhibits are placed throughout both parks, but they can garner a line by those witches and wizards looking to get a little practice in. Despite this, there are usually ample opportunities for both children and adults to try their hand at the animated fixtures that are positioned in Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley. Each interactive experience needs the wand holder to recite a spell and move their wand according to the instructions that are on the floor. Once done correctly, watch your magical abilities unfold as you turn on water spigots, levitate objects, and make lights flicker from afar. 

1 Skip It: The Three Broomsticks

The Three Broomsticks is a hot spot for witches and wizards who frequent Hogsmeade while on break from their Hogwarts studies. However, in the real world, The Three Broomsticks leaves a lot to be desired. This restaurant's lines just to get in are ridiculously long, finding a seat is an excursion on its own, and the food is thought to be subpar. It's best to just skip this one and enjoy a nice refreshing Butterbeer and Chocolate Frog to hold you over before dinner.
