There is a lot of buzz about Harry Potter Attractions at Universal Studios Orlando Resort. Opening this summer along with Diagon Alley is the Hogwarts Express Train. The train will connect Diagon Alley in Universal Studios and Hogsmeade in Islands of Adventure, allowing guests with park-to-park admission to enjoy a real journey aboard the iconic locomotive. The Hogwarts Express experience will take riders on the journey of a lifetime. Once seated in the cabin, guests can look out their windows as an y authentic and magical adventure unfolds before them. They’ll see Hagrid alongside the train on his flying motorbike, Buckbeak the Hippogriff swoop over the black lake, the Weasley twins on brooms and up to their usual antics, the Knight Bus swerving through London traffic and other special surprises.
The Hogwarts Express greets guests as they enter Hogsmeade Station in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Hogsmeade was the first installment of Harry Potter Attractions at the Universal Orlando Resort. Universal’s Creative team worked closely with Warner Bros., Stuart Craig, and the production team from the Harry Potter films to create a sensational Hogwarts Express experience that the entire family can enjoy. The Creative team has gone to great lengths to ensure the experience is true to the books and films. 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 links the two Harry Potter Attractions in both Parks, which has never been done before in a theme park.
