Vote of the week: How do you like your Butterbeer?
Written by Robert Niles
In honor of today's opening of the seventh Harry Potter film, I thought I'd ask a question about The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando.Tweet
At first glance, it might seem that there's no question about the Wizarding World. Universal's new Harry Potter land has won, well, universal acclaim. It won our Theme Park Insider Award for Best New Attraction of 2010. It's been sitting atop of Best Themed Ride rankings since it opened. And this week, the themed amusement industry's designers and managers honored it with four Thea Awards at the 2010 IAAPA Attractions Expo.
No question, huh?
Not so fast. There is one question roiling the Wizarding World - one question that divides fans into bitter enemy camps, like Gryffindors battling Slytherins.
How do you like your Butterbeer, regular or frozen?
If you've visited the park, go ahead and respond with your favorite version of Universal's highly addictive drink. If you've not yet visited, take a look at the pros and cons listed below and in the comments, then respond with the version you'll pick first when you do visit.
(And you must visit. If you're a theme park fans - even if you don't care for Harry Potter - you really should see this, to see the ultimate in immersive area theming.)
Why Frozen Butterbeer?
Why Regular Butterbeer?
So which will it be?
