The original 2D animation used in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando will be used in the California park after multiple incidents involving the new 3D effects on the ride making riders motion sick.

The 3D conversion was also criticised for taking away from the animation, due to riders having to wear 3D glasses.
