你的旅程就要開始,但你必須注意安全,
霍格華茲的分類帽將告訴你需要知道的一切。
如果你還太小,這些長椅並不安全。
你必須比精靈要大,48英寸那麼高。
現在拿掉那些東西,它們可能或戳或劃或掉。
首飾、手機、零錢,把它們全都放好。
為了使您的寶物安然無恙,您可以使用智能儲物箱。
古靈閣製作、巫師檢驗,所有都可以用它存放。
現在有一個警告,如果飛行讓你不適,請不要乘坐。
如果懷孕或者背頸腫痛,選擇離開才是最好!
你來自或遠或近的地方,等候時間有些長,
但排隊時抽煙、飲食卻是大錯。
現在謝謝你的聆聽,我的安全提示已經說完。
我們希望你活著講出故事,最重要的是,玩的開心!

"Your journey is about to start, but safely you must go,
And so the Hogwarts Sorting Hat tells all you need to know.
These benches are not safe for you if you are still too small.
You must be more than goblin-sized, 48 inches tall.
Now rid yourself of objects that might poke or scratch or fall.
Take jewelry, cell phones, all loose change and stow them, one and all.
To keep your treasures safe and sound, Smart Lockers are supplied.
Gringotts-made and wizard-proofed, for all you need to hide.
And now, a warning; do not ride if flying makes you queasy.
If pregnant or else sore in back or neck, then leave, it's easy!
You've traveled far, you』re very near, the waiting』s been long,
But smoking, drinking, or eating while in line are very wrong.
Now thank you all for listening. My safety lesson's done.
We hope you live to tell the tale, and most of all, have fun!"
