Calling all Harry Potter fans ... All Aboard!
The Hogwarts Express experience is set to debut this Summer (2014) as part of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley – the all-new, magnificently themed land - and we have all of the newly released details!
The train will connect the new land in Universal Studios Florida with The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade in Islands of Adventure – allowing guests with park-to-park admission to enjoy a real journey aboard the iconic locomotive. Universal Studios Orlando is creating the ultimate experience for Harry Potter enthusiasts with an actual train ride experience that connects two spectacularly themed environments. Everything about the train is authentic – from the paint and the materials used to build it….all the way down to the whistle. The Hogwarts Express experience combines powerful storytelling, live special effects, lifelike animation and state-of-the-art technology - to truly take riders on the journey of a lifetime!
As part of the Hogwarts Express, guests will enjoy two completely different experiences depending on whether they’re traveling to Hogsmeade or London. Once seated in the cabin, guests will be able to look out their windows as an incredibly authentic and magical adventure unfolds before them. They’ll see Hagrid come alongside the train on his flying motorbike, Buckbeak the Hippogriff swoop gracefully over Black Lake, the Weasley twins on brooms and up to their usual antics, the Knight Bus swerving through London traffic – and other special moments and surprises.
The Hogwarts Express experience is set to debut this Summer (2014). Park-to-park admission is required to experience the Hogwarts Express journey.
