Forbidden Journey sees half a million riders during first 3 weeks of operation, Universal tweaks park crowd control

The Orlando Sentinel has a nice report on how Universal is dealing with the large crowds descending upon the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park at Universal Orlando.  Of note, the article says that the main attraction – Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey – has seen over half a million riders.

Below, find details on how Universal is handling the large crowds:

The crowd-control moves, many of which have an improvised quality to them, range from issuing rafflelike paper tickets to prevent people from cutting into the long queue that appears many mornings at the entrance to Wizarding World, to halting indefinitely the sale of liquor inside the Hog’s Head tavern so the bar can more quickly move mugs of butterbeer, the sugary concoction based on a popular drink in the Harry Potter books and movies.
