The Triwizard Spirit Rally @ Universal’s Hogsmeade

One of the shows you can catch in Hogsmeade at Universal’s Islands of Adventure in Orlando is the Triwizard Spirit Rally. There, representatives from competing schools Beauxbatons Academy of Magic and the Durmstrang Institute put on a show meant to impress and intimidate, albeit in two entirely different ways. We were first introduced to these two wizarding schools in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

First, the Beauxbatons ladies, who twirl and smile and sigh dramatically. Their strategy is clearly to overtake their rivals by charm. You could almost see little cartoon hearts and cupids floating around them.

Then there are the Durmstrang boys, who are tough. They make loud, guttural noises and bang their sticks on the stage a lot. They intend to intimidate anyone with enough nerve to even consider competing with them.

It’s not a must-see show, but it’s a nice way to kill time if you’re waiting for a family member to get off of a ride, or if you just want to soak up some of the Hogsmeade atmosphere.  Check it out!
