Visit Hogwarts From Your Sofa In This Virtual 'Harry Potter' Ride

Visit Hogwarts From Your Sofa In This Virtual 'Harry Potter' Ride

Harry Potter fans - we've got some super exciting news. You can now visit Hogwarts castle from the comfort of your sofa.

Well, sort of.

Thanks to Undercover Tourist, you can virtually visit the Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey ride at Universal Studios in the US without even moving a muscle.

In a video available to watch on YouTube, Potterheads can experience a trip around Hogwarts as if they were really there, visiting Dumbledore in his office and listening to paintings nattering around them.

You'll also get the chance to wander through the Defence Against The Dark Arts classroom, the herbology lab and you might even stumble into the Room of Requirement. And that's all *before* the ride has even started.

The good thing about watching the experience online, is if you want, you can fast-forward the queuing too, and get straight down to the action.

For the ride itself, you'll be strapped onto a broomstick (or, at least, the guy filming it was.)

As you keep watching, you'll then journey through the skies above Hogwarts, coming face-to-face with fire-breathing dragons, spiders in the Forbidden Forrest, and, of course, your besties: Harry, Ron, Hermione and non-other-than Hagrid.

You'll end up in the great hall, where everybody will be cheering, and Dumbledore will be on hand to offer you congratulations for saving the day.

With everything going on in the world right now, we can't think of anywhere we'd rather escape than Hogwarts.

Of course, not everybody is a fan of Hazza P. But don't worry, the virtual fun doesn't stop there.

You can also take part in a whole string of Disney rides from your living room, from a jolly It's A Small World boat ride in Fantasyland Magic Kingdom to a terrifying trip on Space Mountain in Tomorrowland at Magic Kingdom.

Fancy a trip to Neverland to ride on Peter Pan's Flight? Or, what about a trip through a "cartoon universe" on Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway, found at Disney's Hollywood Studios?

The fun really is never ending.

In such a troubling time, we all have a duty to stay inside and look after the most vulnerable in society.

But with all these rides on our to-do-list, self isolation just got a whole lot more interesting...
