Orlando - For a second day in a row, visitors are waiting up to five hours to get on a new Harry Potter ride at Universal Orlando Resort in Florida.

Some visitors, like Juan Sigler and his family from Pembroke Pines, Florida, say the ride is worth the wait. They say they felt immersed in Harry Potter's world.

They had to board the ride three different times Wednesday morning since it stopped twice because of technical glitches.
