^ Just got back from The Drive! Checked out about the Butterbeer recipe, and all that they told me, was that the "liquid ice cream" is just that. Vanilla ice cream, that's allowed to melt, in a container, in the refrigerator. Stirred from time to time, but not refrozen. And that's it! Simple, huh? I'm sure you could plus up the ice cream the way you want it. :wink: Enjoy!

Hagrid's has to be close to running at full capacity at this point. The wait time is (comparatively) almost reasonable. Minions, Gringotts and Transformers all have longer wait times also.

PS: Yes, watching the social media meltdowns about crowds this week really never gets old for me. :lol:

The fast and the furious ride is at 130 mins lol I wonder if those people have any idea what the ride is actually like because there shouldn't be anyone who knows what the ride is that would wait that long for it.

I know they tend to overestimate it so it's probably closer to 2.5-3 hours. :lol:
