Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Roller Coaster Opens In Universal Orlando

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter attraction in Universal Orlando is not quite the same as the one found in Universal Studios Hollywood. For one, it does not have the awesome Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey ride set inside the Hogwarts castle. Instead it had the Dragon Challenge (formerly Dueling Dragons) which was basically a rebranded thrill ride for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. If you haven’t already heard, it is gone now.

Build Your Own Lightsaber And Droid At Disney’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

You know Universal Studio’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter has a wand shop? Disney’s soon-to-open Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge attraction also have something similar. But obviously, wands wouldn’t be fitting and so, the galaxy far, far away themed attraction would just go with Lightsaber. Like, duh? What’s else could be more representative of the Star Wars universe, right? Continue reading Build Your Own Lightsaber And Droid At Disney’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

South Park Themed Escape The Room Is A Thing Now

Six years. That’s how long since Escape The Room was introduced to the world. If you haven’t gotten yourself into the game, perhaps this is a good time to do so (if you are in the U.S.) because, South Park-themed Escape The Room, South Park: Cartman’s Escape Room, is here. But that, of course, is only if you are a fan of the crude, definitely not-for-children cartoon series where Kenny gets killed almost every single episode and poop talks.

Idaho’s Retired “Star Potato” Turned Into An Airbnb Accommodation

The state of Idaho, U.S.A., is not exactly a touristy state – unless you have this special affinity with potato, which the state is famously known for. If that’s the case, you would want to visit Idaho and you want to stay in the Big Idaho Potato Hotel that is currently listed on Airbnb. That, btw, is literally a potato. A giant-ass potato. It is in Boise and it is kind of iconic. Continue reading Idaho’s Retired “Star Potato” Turned Into An Airbnb Accommodation

This Cafe In Japan Has A Bathroom Surrounded By An Aquarium

Whatever the attraction is, one thing for sure is, the bathroom is not it. Or so we thought. Continue reading This Cafe In Japan Has A Bathroom Surrounded By An Aquarium

Cafe With Stacked Grasshopper-shaped Trains Looked A Little Wrong

What see here is Grasshopper’s Dream, a cafe located along Auraji rail bike route near Jeongseon, South Korea. It is made up of two train carriages, each transformed to resemble a giant-ass grasshopper that looked like it is ready chow down humans instead of plants. The transformation was uncanny. They do look like the grass chowing insect of the suborder Caelifera, complete eyes, feelers and imposing, protruding metal legs. Not going to deny the fact. Continue reading Cafe With Stacked Grasshopper-shaped Trains Looked A Little Wrong
