Being on this ride puts you right in the middle of the story. At every instance you are engaged with something going on. Our youngest closed her eyes through the entire ride twice before riding it a third time and realizing what she was missing. This is a great family ride, the wait leading up to the ride is well worth the wait, it puts you into a Harry Potter state, helping keep your mind open to the ride itself. We didn't experience any motion sickness of any kind, only adrenaline and excitement!
