Review of the Fountain of Fair Fortune

The Fountain of Fair Fortune is a good place to get a drink in Diagon Alley. The queue is often shorter than the queue at The Hopping Pot and Florean Fortescue's Ice Cream Parlor, so if you're looking for a Harry Potter themed drink or soft serve Butterbeer, this is a smart place to go. Our favorite beverage is the Frozen Butterbeer, but the Fishy Green Ale is also a fun (and strangely tasty) choice if you feel adventurous. 

The most unfortunate thing about The Fountain of Fair Fortune is that you can't get every Harry Potter themed drink. For example, you can't get Tongue Tying Lemon Squash, Otter's Fizzy Orange Juice, or Pumpkin Juice.

Another drawback is that The Fountain of Fair Fortune is a small establishment. Space is tight, and if the queue is full, it can feel quite crowded. If you have claustrophobia, you should head over to The Hopping Pot, which has an outdoor queue.
