Universal Orlando announced on their blog this morning that a new generation of thrill ride is coming to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade at Universal’s Islands of Adventure in 2019. They are keeping the major details under wraps. But here is what they shared on the blog:
▪ This thrill ride will take you deeper into J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World, where you will encounter some of your favorite characters and creatures.
▪ The new attraction will be one of the most highly-themed coaster experiences Universal has created. It will combine a new level of storytelling with an action-packed adventure and a few surprises along the way, according to the blog.
▪ The award-winning Universal Creative team is once again collaborating with Warner Bros. and the production design team from the Harry Potter films to bring this new coaster experience to life.
Never miss a local story.
▪ Dragon Challenge will permanently close on Sept. 5 to make way for this all-new ride. The last day of operation will be Sept. 4.
