Added DiffLines:

* ButThouMust: At the start of the ride, Hermione tells the guests to say "Observatory" as she tosses floo powder on them. Even if the riders don't say it, they'll still be teleported there anyway.


* AbsenteeActor: Much of the Hogwarts staff is not seen, but most notably Professor Snape. This is because Alan Rickman turned down the offer to appear in the ride, as [[IAmNotSpock he didn't want to always be associated with the character]]. (Not that he ''wasn't'' in the end, mind you.)

The ride first opened at Universal's Islands of Adventure on June 18, 2010. Its massive success prompted a duplicate to be constructed at Universal Studios Japan, which opened on July 15, 2014. Two years later, Universal Studios Hollywood finally received their own clone of the ride (that opened on April 7, 2016) after it spent a long period of time in DevelopmentHell. The two duplicates of the attraction feature some minor differences to their original Orlando counterpart, such as having a much more overwhelming Dementor sequence. Also unlike Orlando, Japan's version of the attraction is presented in 3-D. Hollywood's version was originally in 3-D as well, but due to negative guest reception[[note]]Let's just say that having 3-D mixed in with the ride's motions ended up being a major source of NauseaFuel for guests...[[/note]] it was removed just before the end of 2016. The Japan iteration of the attraction later on also removed the 3-D, presumably for the same reasons.

** If it was to hypothetically take place in the series, it would be sometime during Order of the Phoenix. Even then, Professor Umbridge wouldn’t have allowed Muggles into Hogwarts. She would’ve either been temporarily absent or somehow unaware of any of this.
