There have been so many exciting additions to Universal Orlando in the past few years; amazing new resort hotels, the addition of Volcano Bay are just a couple examples. Universal’s Islands Of Adventure’s ranking as the number one theme park world wide has made Universal a premier family vacation destination.
We were thrilled to hear that Universal Orlando is taking their commitment to amazing thrill rides to the next level with a new Harry Potter themed ride. The ride will replace Dragon Challenge. Universal isn’t sharing a ton of details but here’s what we know from them:
… – Hogsmeade at Universal’s Islands of Adventure in 2019! I can’t tell you everything about the new ride just yet, but here’s what I can share:
- This all-new thrill ride will take you deeper into J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World, where you will encounter some of your favorite characters and creatures. It’ll be unlike anything we’ve ever done before and it will be fun for the entire family.
- The new attraction will be one of the most highly-themed coaster experiences we’ve created. It will combine a new level of storytelling with an action-packed adventure…and a few surprises along the way.
- Our 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.
- This ride is going to redefine the category and transport you to thrilling places, drawing you into even more exciting adventures within the wizarding world. It’s going to be the perfect addition to Hogsmeade.
We’re permanently closing Dragon Challenge on September 5 to make way for this all-new ride. The last day of operation will be Monday, September 4.
