Wizarding World Shopping Entertainment

The Hippogriff in flight, this family-friendly roller coaster lets you soar like a hippogriff. When bowing, remember to do so; you will get to know a Hippogriff—a shopping trip to Hogsmeade, Dervish, and BangsOwl PostHoneydukes. Then you have the Butterbeer Cart that serves Butterbeer and Pumpkin Juice.  Neither Butterbeer nor Pumpkin Juice will do for me. The Frozen Butterbeer is my favorite option at the cart instead of the others. Currently, Butterbeer hot (the best Butterbeer) is only available there.
