Maybe good for kids but personally I don't think it belongs here. I would rather they take it out and built more of the town or somehow make a bigger entrance for the castle.

For a kids ride, this is pretty fun! Also gives you a great view of the castle at night. They really should add some kind of Hagrid animatronic or something to make the line more bearable.
