Gringotts Wait (Over 7 hours!?)

I count three coaster sections. If Blazin Fury and Fire in the Hole are coasters, this is more so.

Sorry, there were just a few too many dumb comments in this thread that were driving me a little insane. :P

Where? I only see this one...

I'm going to wait a couple of years before I ride that thing.

I didn't want to take up room with a new topic so hopefully I'll get a reply back in here. Weighing my options....I'll be at universal in two weeks and one tip suggests taking express train from IOA to studios side. Hit up transformers des me and then gringotts. Looking at this post, is it prob wise to make a b line for gringotts or will
Universal guests be crowding it up first thing In the morning. Didn't see any trip reports about USF so thought I might ask here.

Sky's the limit.

I have been told that later in the day (close to closing) the Potter attractions tend to clear out a little. If you aren't staying on Universal property and getting into the park an hour early to take in the Potter attractions, you will have a huge line no matter what for these rides and lands. However, as cool as Potter stuff is (and it really IS), I would almost recommend seeing the rest of Universal before doing Potter so you can truly appreciate the rest as much as possible.

I was once told that at Islands of Adventure, start back at Dueling Dragons and then work your way back towards the rest of the park. However, I don't know if that still works because of Dueling Dragons (Dragon Challenge) being in the Potter section now. I'd honestly probably devote one full day for trying the Potter stuff and then do the rest of the parks accordingly. Definitely hit up Spiderman very first thing on the day you don't do Potter because the line just keeps getting longer and longer and longer. The best advice I can give though is TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE SINGLE RIDER LINE. Many of the rides have this, and it can cut SO much of your wait times on marquis attractions. I don't know if you've ever been to Universal before, so I figured I'd throw that out there. Mummy, MiB, Spiderman, and many other rides have this, and it can really help you out.

Depending on the price, I'd suggest the two park line skipping option. I did it a few years ago, it's only good once per attraction (the only draw back) but it saved me a lot of time.
