Universal Studios released information and pictures from the new Hogwarts Express at Universal Studios Florida. This new and never been done attraction will allow guests to actually board the train at the new Potter expansion, Diagon Alley and allow them to actually ride the train to Hogsmeade, like the cast of Harry Potter! The ride will show the British countryside, as well as feature cast of the Potter film and even Dementors. This ride will change depending if you get on at the Hogsmeade or the Diagon Alley side. This attraction will also mark the first time that an attraction will link two separate parks. In order to experience the train ride guests must have admission to both parks. Look below to see some of the awesome screen shots provided by Universal to us well before the opening!
The ride will include:
- Being transported from the Muggle world to the wizarding world as you pass through the brick wall at King’s Cross Station to arrive at Platform 9 ¾
- Watching in amazement as the Hogwarts Express pulls into the station – its billowing steam and authentic whistle beckoning you to hop aboard
- Sitting in one of the train’s cabins with your family and friends and actually riding the Hogwarts Express – just as your favorite characters did in the Harry Potter films
- Looking outside your cabin window and enjoying a scenic, breathtaking journey through the British countryside as you encounter magical creatures, some of your favorite Harry Potter characters…and even Dementors…
