Eighth Voyage of Sinbad
It's a stunt show of heroic proportions! Cheer on the heroes and boo the villains in this spectacular live adventure. See death-defying stunts and breathtaking feats as the mighty Sindbad and his wisecracking sidekick Kabob attempt to rescue the beautiful Princess Amoura from the evil witch Miseria.
The action takes place in a spectacular setting – a mysterious grotto littered with the wrecks of ships lured to their misfortune by the evil sorceress. You'll be on the edge of your seat as you witness exciting battles between the heroes and Miseria's ghoulish minions, explosive pyrotechnics, and eye-popping stunts including a fiery plunge into the water below.
The Eighth Voyage of Sindbad is an open-air amphitheater show in The Lost Continent at Universal's Islands of Adventure.
The show's finale features a daring "flaming high dive" in which a stunt person is set on fire and dives into a watery pit.
The Mystic Fountain
Make a wish at the Mystic Fountain and you may get more than you bargained for!
This easily overlooked attraction situated in the Lost Continent just in front of the Sinbad theatre is great fun for kids and unsuspecting adults.
It talks, it watches and listens to passing guests and it squirts out lots and lots of water. It has a wicked sense of humour and it is very amusing to watch as guests approach. It makes a great place for kids to cool off when it's hot.
Ollivander's Wand Shop
One of the most popular (if not the most popular) attractions at the new Harry Potter park is the Ollivanders Wand Shop show. The show features an old wizard in Ollivanders going through the process of wand selection for one lucky guest. The wands either work or not, depending on whether they're a "correct match" for the customer. This results in quite a few interesting "special effects" in the shop.
Step into Ollivanders Wand Shop, makers of fine wands since 382 B.C. One muggle is chosen to try out a wand. After a few tests and misfires the correct wand finally chooses its owner.
The line for this show gets quite long, even on less busy days in the park, so come prepared to wait. There's really no way around this wait, but don't be fooled....you don't have to wait in this line to buy a wand!! You can go in through Dervish & Banges to buy a wand, visit one of the wand kiosks throughout the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, or the shop at the front of Islands of Adventure to buy your wand.
TriWizard Spirit Rally in Hogsmeade
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter has one main live action show, the TriWizard Spirit Rally in Hogsmeade just outside the gates of Hogwarts Castle. It’s lively and energetic, fun to watch and photograph.
At the Triwizard Spirit Rally, the visiting students from the Beauxbatons and Durmstrung show off their school pride. First the lovely French ladies demonstrate their ribbon dancing talents to a classical soundtrack. Then the Russian lads show off their martial arts skills with some fighting-stick acrobatics. Afterwards, everyone poses for pictures.
Dressed in blue outfits with blue peaked caps, four Beauxbatons women dance with trailing long blue ribbon streamers as they twirl about the small plaza. They never do anything magical, just as they did not in the Harry Potter saga. But they do look good, just as in the films!
The Durmstrang men, who attend a 700-year old school that teaches the Dark Arts, appear as brooding and angry as their movie counterparts. Since it’s too hot to for furs and capes, the Durmstrang men are reduced to wearing brown military-styled outfits.
Hogwarts Frog Choir at Harry Potter Park
The Frog Choir, briefly seen in Prisoner of Azkaban, is an a cappella choir consisting of four Hogwarts students and two bass-singing toads (psst, they’re puppets). The group, led by an emphatically gesticulating conductor, performs beat-box versions of songs from the Potter scores, such as “Hedwig’s Theme” and “Something Wicked This Way Comes.”
The Frog Choir is a singing group of Hogwarts students which is conducted by Professor Filius Flitwick. In The wizarding world of Harry potter, a small choir of Hogwarts students show this as a presentation of songs, accompanied by their large croaking frogs.
