The Wizarding World of Harry Potter forever changed Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood. This immersive journey into the world of JK Rowling continues to expand, and more Harry Potter awaits at Epic Universe, Universal Studios’ forthcoming third theme park in central Florida.

Though most Harry Potter fans dream of visiting the wizarding world, some who made it there have voiced specific grievances online this week. Reddit user u/cloudy_seven asked others if they noticed poor quality decorations in Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey:
The physical dementors on Forbidden Journey look very bad. They look like ghost Halloween decorations and actually took me out of the experience briefly. Anyone else feel this way? Otherwise really solid ride but good god I wish they would improve it. They feel like a total afterthought.
Dozens of fans voted and commented in support of the post. “Unfortunately, it hasn’t aged well” u/mt_uno wrote. “Mainly because of the screens still using 2009/2010 technology. Also, the dementor scene was originally meant to be a lot scarier. But somehow giant spiders are ok.”
“You should put your ‘too scary’ hands back on them for one thing!” said u/CB8393, which refers to spiked hands removed to “toned down” the ride. Interestingly, the effect is still on the dementors at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Studios Japan.

Other fans pointed out other issues they noticed with the Harry Potter ride. “Another weird thing I noticed was that the womping willow wasn’t moving at all. It made noises and stuff, but the tree itself didn’t do anything.” u/WickedCyclone2015 remind. This effect has since been fixed.
Universal Orlando Resort hasn’t announced any plans to update Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, which opened nearly thirteen years ago.
