Islands of Adventure Modifies Seats For the Forbidden Journey
The “Forbidden Journey” ride at Universal Studios’ Harry Potter park just got a little less forbidden, at least for some large tourists (no offense). The park has added new larger sized seats to the ride, so at least some of those who were turned away in previous months might have better luck now. Banks Lee, a man who was turned away because of his size, reported on the new seats:
“Now, with the addition of the modified seats, the test seat process has changed. When you sit down, there are three lights next to you; red, yellow, and green. As I stated earlier in the post, red=no ride, yellow=modified seat, and green=sit anywhere. If you get yellow and need a modified seat, once you get to the part before the loading platform where the second test seat is, the attendant will put you in the middle line, which is reserved for guests needing the modified seat.
Since there are only around 8 vehicles that currently have modified seating, you have to wait for one to come around. Once it does come you go to the loading platform, and choose either of the outside seats. The two middle seats are not modified. You still need three clicks to be able to ride, but they are now much easier to get, especially with the little extra room you have in the seat.”
