ORLANDO, Fla. — 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.

A sign at the entrance to the ride, Harry Potter and the Escape From Gringotts, at midday Wednesday said the wait would be 300 minutes.

Others, like Jason Phillips and his family from Baton Rouge, say no ride is worth that long a wait.
