ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Universal Orlando is tweaking an attraction to ensure even guests with butterbeer bellies can enjoy the park's most popular Harry Potter ride.
After taking heat from ride critics and guests too big to squeeze in, the company said Monday it has started tinkering to make "Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey" more accessible. Workers are adjusting the overhead harnesses that keep guests in place while a robotic arm flings them through a chaotic sequence in the boy wizard's life.
The cutting-edge ride is the crown jewel of the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter area inside Islands of Adventure in Orlando.
The adjustments were first reported by Orlando Attractions Magazine. So far Universal has only changed a few ride vehicles, but eventually all will be tweaked.
